    Star Wars The Clone Wars Official Trailer

    In a surprise announcement at San Diego Comic-Con today, Lucasfilm released a trailer revealing that 12 of the remaining episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, left unaired due to the show's cancellation in 2013, would be fully finished and released.

    If you need me, I'll be on the ceiling jubilantly shouting into my pillow.

    • Desire and Will can be an excruciating thing.

    • So happy about this. Hopefully this includes the remaining Mandalore arc.

        Loading editor
    • Wow, I actually lost hope in this and it actually happened. What are the odds...

      It's obvious their doing to distract us from TLJ and Solo, but who cares.

    • Just heard about it on Facebook and I was like "Wait... what???"

      And it seems they would actually complete those unfinished Legacy episodes, at least I think I saw some Bad Batch members!

    • so the old War continue

    • I was following along on The Wookiee Gunner's live tweets and remember freaking out for a solid two minutes when all she had posted was the #Saved poster, trying to figure out what the heck that meant. I couldn't fully process what was going on until that SW.com article went up.

      And then the happy tears started. :) :) :) I still tear up when I see the headline. CLONE WARS IS BLOODY BACK, PEOPLE!!!! :) :) :) I knew Dave Filoni was working on something sneaky besides Resistance; Filoni, you sneaky, magnificent mastermind!!!

      I was on the fence with this whole Disney streaming service even with the Jon Favreau live action SW project they've been talking about, but after this? TAKE MY MONEY NOW, YOU GLORIOUS SNEAKY PEOPLE!!! CLONE WARS IS BLOODY BACK!!! :) :) :)

    • AAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAH I SAW THIS THE OTHER DAY!?!?!? So hyped!

        Loading editor
    • So is it just the previously unfinished material being fully finished, or are they also planning more than 1 new season? 

        Loading editor
    • As far as they've said, it's just 12 episodes. The Bad Batch, the Siege of Mandalore, and at least one other arc, which I think will be the Bounty Hunters arc since they already recorded the voice lines for it. They have for some time now, since it was originally made for Season 5 but it kept getting pushed back in the broadcast order until the show was canceled.

      Of course, they haven't said that these episodes will be 22 minutes each like always, so we'll see. ;)

    • Desperation? What the heck's that supposed to mean? This is fantastic news, for Pete's sake! :)

      The Bounty Hunters arc was meant for S5? Huh, I didn't know that. I guess that makes sense, though. I mean, that final Clovis arc was pushed back to S6 when it was originally meant for S4, so it's not unheard of.

      I wonder, though sincerely hope I'm wrong, if the mystery episode arc is the Utapau arc. I seriously hope not, because that would be two arcs we've technically already 'seen' and would be kind of a waste, but... it would make sense, if they're finishing Bad Batch already.

      Y'know... we're getting the Bad Batch for sure... but weren't there two arcs planned with them? What if that bit for the trailer was just made for the trailer (since I don't remember that scene in the episodes, though I could be wrong) and the Bad Batch arc we're getting is the one on Kashyyyk with Yoda and Tarrful? That would be SO rad. :)

    • Huh, since when is bringing back a successful and loved show that ended prematurely "desperation"?

      They are doing the right thing. For once...

    • I think he is saying that Disney is bringing the beloved clone wars back to save face after the strong negative reaction from solo and last Jedi.

      Which, I have absolutely no problem with.

        Loading editor
    • Solo didn't get negative reactions - it was sabotaged by its own "fans" through boycotts.

      I can't understand how one can claim to be a fan of something and actively try to ruin it, but that's an entirely different topic...

        Loading editor
    • The Last Jedi and Kathleen Kennedy aren't killing Star Wars. The fans are...

      But yeah, what Bly said: bringing back TCW is probably Disney's attempt to curry fans' favor after the backlash from Episode VIII, while also promoting their upcoming streaming service. Honestly, I'm fine with that too. If Disney wants my money... then they're getting it. Well played. ;)

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, in the end it doesn't matter why they do it - we are happy that they DO it :P

      Do you think the Utapau arc will be included too? It has very strong ties to ANH and Rogue One (and also a few Rebels episodes), which makes it a feasible candidate. But more importantly - would it be just 12 episodes and "that's all folks", or would there be a chance for more stuff in the future?

        Loading editor
    • In my opinion, if they're putting in the Siege of Mandalore arc, which is the series finale, i'd say this will be it. And to be honest, I really don't care. Sure, I would love to see the rest of Clone Wars, but as long as I am getting the serie finale that has Ahsoka vs Maul, the Clone Troopers with Ahsoka's markings, and tells us where Ahsoka was during Order 66, i'm cool.

        Loading editor
    • Totally with you on that. I would love, love, LOVE more Clone Wars than just twelve episodes, but at the same time, I'm ready to have one last hurrah and let it ride off into the sunset on it's own terms this time. Don't milk TCW 'till it's dry; that's why they ended Rebels when they did. Well, that and Disney's stupid 'four seasons and done' rule...

      And that, my friends, is why I love this forum. I'm one of those people that can find the tiniest thing to love about pretty much every movie and TV show I've seen* and I know I'm practically troll-bait to everywhere else on the internet. Thank you for your sanity. :)


      (*Except The Last Airbender. As both an aspiring writer who meticulously studies things to learn more about the craft and an Avatar fan, I just found that one painful... *shudder*)

    • Fun story - I watched the Last Airbender movie years before seeing the animated series, and I kind of liked it, mostly because of the world it built. Then I actually watched the series a couple of years ago and now (expectedly) the movie seems totally bland by comparison.

      I was deeply disappointed by some people's reactions to TLJ. Okay, I can understand not liking a movie, everyone has different tastes and preferences... but becoming obsessed with smearing it in every possible way, uploading countless videos ranting on and on why it's the most horrible thing since smallpox - that I cannot understand. I worry we're not far from the day when movies will have to pause every half an hour and display the message "It's just a movie, please get a grip." in big red letters.

      Regarding the new TCW episodes - I wonder if we'll get to see Rex and the others removing their chips. Or maybe that scene with Ahsoka and Sidious on two sides of a locked door that I've heard about.

      Y'know, my mom did the same thing with the movie. She liked it at first, but I finally got her to sit down and watch the entire series through and I think she likes it more. (Her almost-immediate reaction to the finale was "SO WHERE'S ZUKO'S MOM?!", so I think I got her hooked) I tried, I really did, but Katara's constant unnecessary narration of what's happening in the scene as it bloody happens, that awful Blue Spirit costume, the horrid bending effects and Yue's 'we believe in our beliefs just as much as they do' line... *shudder* Give me any episode of Avatar or Korra over The Last Airbender any day. I'll even take the Avatar episode with those annoying hippies...

      After all the harassment Kelly Marie Tran went through, I'm almost ashamed to be a SW fan. They chased that poor woman off social media just because they didn't like her character. I got pretty furious when people vandalized her Wookieepedia page and called her, among many other things, 'autistic' as an insult. As a high-functioning autistic person myself, people like that just make me want to repeatedly punch them in innumerable, painful places...

      I just can't wait to see Ahsoka and Maul face off! And that moment when Anakin leaves her the 332nd (I think it was the 332nd...) and Rex―y'know, the one that made Ashley Eckstein sob onstage at Celebration when Dave Filoni started describing the scene because it was so good. Plus, Mandalorians. You CANNOT go wrong with more Mandalorians. I AM JUST SO EXCITED I CANNOT PROPERLY EXPRESS IT!!!

    • The bright side (or, at least, a touching aspect) of all that hate on Kelly Marie Tran was how Mark Hamill rushed to her defense and shut down the attackers. Mad respect to that man :') (even with his initial misgivings on Luke's character). Hopefully that also gave her some small comfort after all that.

      I'll say again, I'm sooooooo pumped for the Siege of Mandalore! I always suspected that when they got around to telling that story, they'd give it the animated treatment it deserves, but I can't believe that it's actually happening! I was so excited when I first saw the trailer that I almost wrote this discussion thread in full fangirl caps. I was a grown-ass man legit bouncing off the walls.

      A lot of people have been wondering if this revival run is just a test run; if the new episodes are popular enough, maybe they'll animate the rest. But I think that the Siege of Mandalore will be the definitive series finale, as they always planned. After that, they'll focus mainly on one animated series: Resistance. After all, poor Dave can only be stretched so far.

    • I'm excited to see the military aspect of the arc. Is the siege on indiviual cities? States? A whole planet sieged at once? 

        Loading editor
    • Yes, that was horrible what happened to Kelly Marie Tran.  I can't even express how mad that makes me feel.

        Loading editor
    • I was seriously disgusted, and so touched by everyone rallying to her defense. Seriously, she has to be one of the bubbliest, most cheerful people I've ever seen, and to see all that hate directed towards her then and still now makes me sick. I was verbally bullied pretty badly when I was younger, and that whole 'sticks and stones may break my bones, but words will never hurt me' spiel? Totally bogus. Words did more damage to me than any physical assault would've. I just hope she doesn't take too much of it to heart...

      I'm not that much of a shrieker, and I was shrieking. I nearly broke my neck running down the stairs to tell my brother, I haven't reacted to anything like that since Thrawn showed up in the S3 trailer! :) :) :) Well, barring the Captain Marvel tease in Infinity War, but that's Marvel and doesn't count here... Anyways, yeah, like I said before, I'm totally down on this being Clone Wars' for reals-finale. One last ride, and go out in a Battle of the Five Armies blaze of glory! (I don't care what people say, I love The Hobbit Trilogy despite any faults it may have and I always will! ...So long as I skip the Gollum scene in Goblin Town, 'cause I still hate that little freak!)

      I've been wondering about if this is all Dave's working on. He said something about formulating ideas of what's going to happen with Sabine and Ahsoka's journey (but we all knew he would) so maybe TCW's return isn't all he's been secretly cooking up. Plus, I heard a rumor that the Favreau live-action project is going to be about Mandalorians. Who better to advise on that than Dave Filoni, A.K.A. the guy who arguably has put canon Mandalorian history and culture on the path to become just as rich and fascinating as it was in Legends? I mean, Favreau's already got to have a pretty good handle on Mando'ade because, hello, Pre Vizsla, but it wouldn't hurt to have some Filoni advisory story magic in there. I seriously wouldn't count Dave out as being stretched too far by just one series just yet. I still feel like he's up to something... :)

      Yass. I watched the trailer and I say we need Lightsaber battles like Vader vs Obi-Wan in Ep. IV. I would also like to see more from Dooku and Grievous.

    • Would it be nice if they alsop make episodes about the deaths of Mother Talzin and Ventress?

      Ventress, especially, is quite the unresolved plot thread... I know about the novel, but would love to see it as part of the show too.

      Yes, me too.

    • I don't think we're getting Son of Dathomir or Dark Disciple in these episodes, largely because the Dark Disciple arc was 8 episodes long. I doubt they'd devote two thirds of the revival run to that. As for Son of Dathomir, prooobably not since it was still visualized via comic. Better than nothing, I guess. I still think/wish/hope that we're getting the Bounty Hunter arc because come on! It's essential for any fans of Boba Fett or Cad Bane (like me). :P

        Loading editor
    • I kind of envisioned it as extra episodes, outside the main 12-episode revival run ;)

    • Personally, I kinda prefer leaving Dark Disciple as a novel rather than be adapted into any possible future episodes. Though I haven't read it in a while and probably won't for the foreseeable future (I read it the week one of my horses died, and a lot of the emotional stuff in the book hit even harder than it should've, so needless to say I'd rather not revisit it yet) the novel went so much deeper into the character motivations and emotions than an episode can go. I just don't see an episode arc being as good as the novel, oh-so-ironically.

      Son of Dathomir was okay, I guess―it's been a few months since I read it on comiXology and I probably should read it again before judging―but I wouldn't complain if they adapted it back into a possible episode arc. It felt a little more rushed to me because of the issue count, really, and I feel like it didn't get to explore the story like it should have. I'm not really a huge fan of Son of Dathomir as opposed to everyone else, apparently, so I'm pretty indifferent to whether they adapt it or not. Plus I'm still annoyed it killed off Tiplee... Yes, I know she was just a minor character, but she was a cool minor character!
