After being cancelled in 2013 following Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm, the cult-classic cartoon series Star Wars: The Clone Wars is being revived, as revealed today at San Diego Comic Con.
The announcement was made at Thursday morning’s Clone Wars panel, where director Dave Filoni gave the good news to an audience of fans, who gave a standing ovation. The fans were treated to a trailer (see below) and a graphic with the hashtag #CloneWarsSaved.
The Clone Wars is one of the most beloved Star Wars stories outside of the main cinematic saga, and introduced audiences to Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s padawan, who quickly became a fan favorite. The series followed Anakin, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka, the rest of the Jedi Council and the Clone Troopers themselves in between the events of Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. The series also revealed that Darth Maul didn’t actually die at the end of The Phantom Menace, and fleshed out that character greatly.
The Clone Wars revival will feature returning voice actors such as Matt Lanter (Anakin), Tim Curry (Palpatine), and stars from the movies Ahmed Best (Jar Jar Binks) and Anthony Daniels (C-3PO).
No official timeline has been given, but the most important thing is The Clone Wars is back!
