Fans helped to revive Star Wars: The Clone Wars


Star Wars: The Clone Wars ended four years ago, but fans haven’t forgotten, and now it’s time for a revival for Disney’s streaming service.

“Hello, Master. It’s been a while.” Thanks to San Diego Comic-Con, that line will be echoing all over social media and in the Star Wars fanbase for a while. It’s the last thing we hear in the trailer for a new season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which will air on Disney’s streaming service.

It’s a proud moment for Star Wars fans, who have had some of the worst bits of fandom highlighted in the past few months. However, even the official writeup from the Star Wars site says that this is due to fans.

So what’s next? Well, we know that Ahsoka Tano is back in action; she and her voice actress, Ashley Eckstein, have become cornerstones of the Star Wars fandom (as that same writeup also notes), with Eckstein also releasing a new Clone Wars collection through her brand, Her Universe.

Moreover, it’s actually the 10th anniversary of The Clone Wars in general, as the show started airing back in 2008 (another point also made by’s official announcement). In other words, there really wasn’t a better time to revive this. (That one’s all us.)

But beyond that, it’s not surprising that The Clone Wars would get the nod. Ahsoka has moved over to Star Wars: Rebels and made some appearances there, but as the trailer itself points out, not everything from her first adventures in the wider world of Star Wars was really shown.

From the looks of the trailer, we might just be able to bridge the gap between the original Clone Wars series and where we find her in Rebels.

Although there’s no release date yet, it wouldn’t surprise us if this is part of the launch of Disney’s streaming service when it arrives next year. That’s the kind of power move you’d expect this big company to make as it enters the field, right?
