Star Wars: The Clone Wars returning for new season
More on Star Wars
In a surprise announcement at San Diego Comic-Con, it was announced today that the beloved animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars would be returning for season seven. The announcement included a trailer for the new season, including the tag line "A war left unfinished...until now."
The series was cancelled in 2013 after Disney acquired Lucasfilm and as a result several major storylines were left unfinished, including the climactic Siege of Mandalore, an event the series was building up to but never got to show.
There are few details available for the new season as of this moment, including when and where the new season will air. Based on the trailer, the original cast appears to be reunited, as there are lines from Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker and Ashley Eckstein as his one-time padawan Ahsoka Tano.
More details are sure to come in the future. For now Star Wars fans can rejoice that The Clone Wars will finally get the conclusion it deserves.
