During the Star Wars: The Clone Wars 10th anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con, Executive Producer Dave Filoni announced the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The beloved series will finally get a proper ending after it’s abrupt cancellation by Disney in 2014. This will consist of twelve new episodes only that will be delivered on Disney’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service. This news was met with manic delight across the fandom, especially for those who grew up with the series.

These twelve episodes will circle a handful of arc’s that were never completed before the cancellation of the series. The most important, the exit of Ahsoka Tano from the Jedi Order and how it may affect Anakin and his journey into the demise of the Dark Side. Star Wars: The Clone Wars was an amazing accomplishment in storytelling, CGI with impactful performances. It was an animated series that we may never see the likes of again. A work that was backed by visionary and his blank checkbook. The freedom to bring the cinematic quality of storytelling to the small screen on a channel with wide exposure. The return and capping off of this series is welcomed news and a joy for a fandom that has a real hard time lately.
