D23 is rolling out announcement after announcement today – it’s almost hard to keep up. Lucasfilm head Kathleen Kennedy took the stage for the Star Wars section of the presentation for Disney+, the brand new streaming service. During the segment, fans of the animated series, The Clone Wars, got news they were hoping to hear – the continuation of the story.
The seventh and final season of the show will air on Disney+ in February of 2020. Series creator Dave Filoni was able to talk to EW about the show before the announcement. “It will conclude the story that [George Lucas] and I started together. There could be stories after that that take place with a lot of those characters. But especially for me directing Clone Wars, being that hands on, I wrote and directed the final four episodes. It’s the end of something I feel really good about.”
There are only 12 episodes in the final season so fans will have the conclusion they’ve been waiting almost a decade for. There’s a little bit more to look forward to as fan favorites Darth Maul and Ahsoka Tano will return to the show. They’ll be in a conflict known as “the Siege of Mandalore” so the show will be pulling out all the stops on the action this time around!
