SDCC 2018: Disney Revives “Clone Wars” for One Last Tour of Duty


The Clone Wars animated television show was one of the greatest things LucasFilm ever created. During its run the show shined a new light on the events of prequels and, in many respects, brought a new respect for the films.

The show itself ran from 2008-2013 but, by the grace of Disney, is returning for one last season. The standalone season will focus on the Siege of Mandalore and bring some well deserved closure for fans.

This is a bit of a surprising move considering Disney all but wrote off most of the continuity of Clone Wars after it bought the property. But by bringing new life to the series it not only places the events of the series in Star Wars canon but allows fans to have a proper farewell. The full trailer is below.
