Did you hear? Star Wars: The Clone Wars is coming back! That was certainly some of the biggest news to come out of San Diego Comic-Con, and Coffee With Kenobi host Dan Z has written a new piece for IGN looking at what fans can expect from the upcoming revival.
You can read an excerpt below:
Thursday, July 20 will be a day long remembered for Star Wars fans. At this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, during the tenth anniversary Clone Wars panel, producer Dave Filoni calmly told a room full of breathless fans that he had a present. As the lights dimmed, those in the room became cautiously enraptured as we were treated to the voice of Captain Rex (voiced by Dee Bradley-Baker), and suddenly the hashtag appeared… #CloneWarsSaved! The atmosphere was electric, and fans roared with excitement, tears, and unabashed jubilation as the all new trailer debuted.
The twelve-episode season will presumably pick up where the series ended in March of 2014, and will run on the upcoming Disney streaming service. And for fans of the Emmy-award winning show, who have lamented its cancelation for years, there is cause for speculation in addition to celebration. What are we going to see? There are a number of threads left out there in the galaxy far, far away that deserve to be untangled, so let’s explore a few.
