Lucasfilm Surprises SDCC Fans With New ‘Star Wars: Clone Wars’ Trailer

The hit animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars is returning! After airing five seasons and coming to an end, sort of – (the series never actually had an ending), supervising director Dave Filoni announced the return of the series during a celebration for the 10th anniversary of the beloved series during San Diego Comic-Con.

Filoni spoke with about the series revival. When asked about finishing the series, he had this to say:

Personally, it’s very rewarding. Any opportunity to put the final pieces of the story in place is meaningful as a storyteller. I’m happy for the opportunity to define these things and the end of this part of the Clone War. It also makes me reflect on all the people that I got to work with over the years. It reinforces the things I learned from George. It reminds me of the important elements that go into making Star Wars. So, it’s nice on several levels, and I think for the crew that’s still here that worked on Clone Wars, they feel that, as well.

The Clone Wars aired in 2008 and dealt closed the three-year gap between prequel films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. The series centered Anakin Skywalker, his padawan Ahoska Tano and Obi-Wan Kenobi as they lead the Grand Army of the Republic against the Separatists. After the series stopped airing, a few never-before-seen episodes were released as The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars will return with twelve episodes which will stream on Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service.
