Comic-Con International began this week and Lucasfilm chose this event to unveil a trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, the newest instalment of the Skywalker Saga.
The trailer announced the return of the cult classic animated series, which takes place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
The trailer points out the untimely demise of the original Clone Wars by describing the show as “a war unfinished… until now.”
The shows original executive producer Dave Filoni will return for all 12 of the new episodes, and where can you see it? You can get your Star Wars fix on the new upcoming streaming service by Disney.
Filoni talked of the fans that have been unwavering over the years saying: “Clone Wars was a piece of Star Wars that older fans might have, initially, not taken seriously because it was animated, but that wasn’t a barrier for kids. They loved the clones and identified with them.” Adding: “Ahsoka gave kids a character that was like them — someone their age that was experiencing life’s challenges and learning along the way. Plus, having a new episode each week really allowed us to explore what was going on with the new and legacy characters in a dynamic way, including Anakin and Obi-Wan.
“I think the stories left an indelible impression and, of course, George knew it would. He always knew.”
