Lucasfilm has revealed the premiere date, official trailer and key art for the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars! The all-new 12 episodes of the epic conclusion will premiere on the Disney+ streaming service on Friday, February 21, 2020.
From Dave Filoni, director and executive producer of The Mandalorian, the Clone Wars episodes will continue the storylines introduced in the original series, exploring the events leading up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
Created by George Lucas, with Dave Filoni as Executive Producer/Supervising Director, Star Wars: The Clone Wars stars Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker, Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker as Captain Rex and the clone troopers, James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Katee Sackhoff as Bo-Katan, and Sam Witwer as Maul.
The show first aired in 2008 and became an entry point into Star Wars for an entire generation, following fan-favorites like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padmé Amidala, while introducing major new characters like Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex.
The series’ stories were complex, its heroes and villains were perfectly imperfect, and its look was captivatingly beautiful. It became a multi-Emmy winner and is now regarded as essential Star Wars.
But it was never finished. The series ended after five broadcast seasons – just as Ahsoka left the Jedi Order. A few post-Season Five episodes were later released as “The Lost Missions,” but the story wasn’t over. Fans have clamored for Disney and Lucasfilm to finish what was started ever since.
In 2020, Disney+ subscribers can also look forward to the return of Hilary Duff in Lizzie McGuire, Marvel Studios’ The Falcon and the Winter Soldier and Marvel Studios’ WandaVision, the Muppets unscripted series Muppets Now, original movies Timmy Failure: Mistakes Were Made, Stargirl, The Phineas & Ferb Movie: Candace Against the Universe, and Secret Society of Second Born Royals, docuseries Rogue Trip and Becoming, and season two of hit series The Mandalorian and High School Musical: The Musical: The Series. Disney+ is also the exclusive streaming home for films from Walt Disney Studios, including Aladdin, Toy Story 4, and The Lion King.
