GEEK GAL OUT! STAR WARS at San Diego Comic Con: Clone Wars is Back!By Caroline Cao | July 24, 2018 | Entertainment
At the San Diego Comic-Con, Clone Wars was back! And baby, and I can’t even!
Star Wars fans survived it all: The Last Jedi, Solo and the end of Star Wars Rebels. But holla! San Diego Comic-Con shot out some moon-shattering news. At the 10th Anniversary Panel of Clone Wars, animator and showrunner Dave Filoni (protege of George Lucas) played what he initially insinuated to be a simple tribute video until it became clear it was a teaser for what was to come. Cue the tagline, “A war unfinished… until now.” Cue a million voices squeeing with joy.
After five seasons on Cartoon Network, a sixth season released in Netflix and then a cancelation in 2013, the acclaimed Emmy-winning CGI animated series The Clone Wars is back for a final seventh season of 12 episodes, after seemingly ending on an uncertain but optimistic note in its cut-short season six. The revival signifies the return of the breakout character Ahsoka Tano, the first canonical female onscreen Jedi, beloved by many little girls aspiring to become Jedi way before Daisy Ridley‘s Rey of the The Force Awakens came in.
As the spin-off stand-alone Kenobi and the highly anticipated Episode IX floats around the corner, we will be awaiting the return of Clone Wars when it comes to Disney’s upcoming streaming service around fall 2019.
Other Star Wars news: In the literary world of Star Wars, the Lucasfilm Publishing Panel announced that our Queen-Senator Padme Amidala of the prequel trilogy is receiving her very own book The Queen’s Shadow by E.K. Johnston (Ahsoka). And Kenobi and Qui-Gon are getting a book called Master and Apprentice by Claudia Gray (who penned the Princess Leia-focused Bloodline and Princess of Alderaan). This really is a time to give homage to the prequel trilogy.
Getting ready to see you in a galaxy, galaxy far, far away.
