Things We Saw Today: The Star Wars: The Clone Wars Final Season Trailer is HERE!
Plus Legends, Picard and More!
Did you think we could really be “done” with Star Wars? Ha! Never. Before we’re even done savoring The Mandalorian and with the corpse of the Skywalker saga barely cold down in the chasm into which it fell (too dark?), we’re back with the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And wow—it looks amazing.
This season is set, as many on Twitter have figured out and are freaking out about, during the events of The Revenge of the Sith, at least in part. The dialogue between Mace Windu and Yoda is directly out of that film, and well … that’s bad news for the Jedi characters. The Republic and the Jedi are doomed. (And that includes Kanan Jarus (aka Caleb Dume) and Jedi master Depa Billaba, of Rebels).
But will Ahsoka Tano remain part of the Jedi Order for the rest of the series? Will she leave in time to avoid Order 66? We know she shows up in Rebels, which bodes well for her fate here but … she’s also one of the force Jedi voices Rey hears in The Rise of Skywalker. We know how things are going to go for Anakin, but seeing them rendered from a different view might make it even more painful, and—was that pregnant Padme we saw? Oh no.
The series also released a new, very cool poster:

Just in this trailer alone, there are so many great dramatic moments, including Ahsoka facing off against Darth Maul (yes, if you haven’t seen Clone Wars, he’s still alive … it’s a whole thing). After six years off the air, it’s going to be so exciting for fans to see this saga return, even if it means it’s coming to an end. But who knows if that’s all of the story. After all, no one’s really ever gone. Maybe Ahsoka will show up in the Obi-Wan series! One can dream!
Star Wars: The Clone Wars debuts on Disney+ on February 21.
