Star Wars: The Clone Wars Returns With New Disney Streaming Service

San Diego Comic-Con is off to a huge start with Disney and Lucasfilm announcing that Star Wars: The Clone Wars is returning!

The big announcement came during Clone Wars 10th anniversary celebration panel Thursday morning at San Diego Comic-Con. The show has been a fan favorite for some time, so it was fun for fans to see creator Dave Filoni and cast members look back on its legacy. But just when everyone thought is was wrapping up, Filoni announced that the series would return for a seventh season, about the siege of Mandalore.

Filoni then surprised the audience with a first look trailer for the new season, which ends with a reunion between Anakin Skywalker and his padawan, Ahsoka Tano. “A war left unfinished… until now,” it teases.

 

If that wasn’t cool enough, we also got this very cool new poster.
The new season is set to debut on Disney’s recently announced direct-to-consumer streaming service, which kicks off in fall of 2019, though there’s no word yet on when exactly Clone Wars will come back. It join’s Jon Favreau’s live-action series—which will take place between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens—as the second Star Wars series on the new platform.

For those unfamiliar with the series, the siege of Mandalore was one of the final battles of the Clone Wars, when Ahsoka and Captain Rex led a battalion of clone troopers to find and seize Darth Maul on Mandalore. It is unclear how much of the siege we’ll see, but it will presumably be the main focus of the season.

This should be a lot of fun.
