And The Fandom Rejoiced: Star Wars: The Clone Wars

  • There was worry that Star Wars would be over after Revenge of the Sith. Then we found out that Star Wars was going to be on TV every week.
  • Mandalorians showing up in Season 2.
  • Delta Squad's thirty-second cameo. Boss even had a speaking role. Good luck trying to hear his two lines over the squees of the fans, though.
  • The reveal of Darth Maul Expy and brother Savage Opress.
  • Darth Maul. That is all. And he's being voiced by Sam Witwer.
  • In season three's "Overlords", Liam Neeson reprises his role as Qui-Gon Jinn.
    • To a lesser degree in the same episode, Pernilla August reprising her role as Shmi Skywalker.
  • In the season three finale, Chewbacca shows up.
  • Ackbar playing a large role in the first arc of season four.
  • The clones having enough of Krell's crap and killing him.
    • Since he was Evil All Along, this can be the moment where Jedi and Traviss' Mando fans can cheer together in unison.
  • The Season 5 trailer.
    • Minute 1:47. That's Embo fighting Savage Opress. That's right, in the next season, two of the most badass characters of this series will fight each other.
  • A clip from SDCC shows two Mandalorians getting force-choked. By who? Palpatine.
    • His appearance alone has generated a lot of hype, especially considering that Sidious is Dual Wielding and battling both Maul and Savage.
  • At least one clone from the Republic Commando will get some action in Season 5.
  • David Tennant as Huyang certainly made a lot of fans happy.
  • Tim Curry taking over as the voice of Palpatine after Ian Abercrombie's untimely passing.
  • The announcement of a new series taking The Clone Wars place had some worried, but then it was revealed Dave Filoni would still be involved in this series.
    • Then, the name of the series, Star Wars: Rebels, was revealed, and that it would take place in the time frame between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. With Dave Filoni, Kilian Plunkett and other parts of the TCW team involved, this also leaves a huge chance for it to tie up some of the loose ends that were left when The Clone Wars was canceled.
    • Greg Weisman is also working on it.
    • Three words: Darth Vader cameo. With James Earl Jones returning as the voice.
      • He's going to be in the second season as the main villain, with James Earl Jones still using the voice.
    • And now Frank Oz is returning as Yoda.
    • Ahsoka's reappearance in the Season 1 finale.
    • The season 2 trailer gives us Captain Rex, Commander Wolffe, the return of Hondo and Gregor, and Darth Vader being a complete badass.
  • There's a possibility of Mark Hamill giving his voice to a yet unknown character in the final episodes. Yes, you read that right.
  • A shame that the show is no longer on television, it might just end up like another great series cancelled due to Disney right problems...wait, it's going to air on Toonami!? IN THE NAME OF THE FORCE, YES! YES! YES!
  • The final episodes of the series, from the planned sixth season, will be released in 2014. What's better, they include new episodes focusing on Yoda and the Umbara clones.
    • It's also coming to Netflix on March 7, along with The Movie and the rest of the series (even Director's Cut episodes). What's even better is that this is the first Star Wars production to ever be on Netflix.
    • And what else? It's getting a midnight release, and unlike the movie launch nights, you won't have to camp outside a movie theatre. When they said March 7, they really meant it.
  • These bonus episodes are great and all, but there probably isn't enough time to cover all the loose ends like what happened to Darth Maul. Wait, Dark Horse is producing a miniseries that adapts what would have been Darth Maul final story arc? YES!!!
  • A trailer for Season 6 in English is out, and what do we have....Qui-Gon Jinn! Mother Talzin! Dagobah! Order 66! Embo! Yoda fighting a Sith Lord!
  • The soundtrack for the entire series is finally going to be released on disc.
  • After the series was canceled, four full episodes with incomplete animation were released on the official Star Wars website. Also coming in 2015? A new novel, Dark Disciple, with Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos.
  • A few weeks before Celebration Anaheim in 2015, Llucasfilm announced that they would be screening 4 new never-before-seen story reels during the convention. The focus of the episodes? Echo's return
  • After the initial screening, theire was concern when or if the story reels would ever be released to the general public. Two weeks later, the Bad Batch story reels are viewable on Star Wars.com alongside Crystal Crisis on Utapau.
