3 unfinished stories we hope to see in Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 7


Star Wars: The Clone Wars is back after coming to an abrupt end in 2013, when dozens of story arcs were left unfinished. While fans are ecstatic about the announcement, we don’t know what stories season 7 will focus on.

So far, we know the Lucasfilm Animation crew is currently working hard to finalize these new episodes. We also know the series will debut on Disney’s direct-to-consumer streaming service at some point in 2019. Thanks to the recently released trailer unveiled at San Diego Comic-Con, we know some of the episodes will focus on the siege of Mandalore, one of the final battles of the Clone War that featured fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano back in action.

Since the cancellation, some of these unfinished stories have found new lives elsewhere. For example, both the “Crystal Crisis” and “Bad Batch” story arcs were released in story reel form on StarWars.com. The Asajj Ventress and Quinlan Vos centered arc was transformed into the Dark Disciple novel by Christie Golden. Lastly, the “Son of Dathomir” story featuring Maul was released as a comic book mini-series by Dark Horse Comics.

So, what’s left? There’s plenty of unfinished material to bring back to life, and even though there are only 12 episodes, we hope one of these story arcs made the cut.

Ahsoka’s walkabout

Ahsoka leaving the Jedi Order is one of the most emotionally stirring scenes from the series, but once she steps off the stairs of the Jedi Temple, where does she go? What does she do? How does she survive now that she’s on her own?

It would be great to see the new season continue right where it left off with Ahsoka, giving fans an insight into how she operates on her own without the Jedi Order’s support and Anakin Skywalker’s guidance.

“She really has no idea how to deal with the real world,” said Supervising Director Dave Filoni during the Ahsoka’s Untold Tales panel at Star Wars Celebration Europe in 2016. “She has no idea how to buy a speeder. She has no idea what it means to have a cost for your living… She has a heavy burden now, just trying to live like a normal person on Coruscant.”

This story arc would also officially introduce a young handsome mechanic by the name of Nyx Okami. According to Filoni, he and Ahsoka develop a close relationship. (Nyxsoka, anyone?)

Ahsoka is no stranger to having crushes or being crushed on, so here’s hoping we’ll see how this relationship contributes to Ahsoka’s developing character and how they get mixed up with the underworld of Coruscant.

Bounty Hunter arc

While Star Wars: The Clone Wars often focused on the effects of the war, it also explored other parts of the galaxy and introduced us to some of the coolest characters around, like the bounty hunter Cad Bane.

One of the unfinished stories brought Bane, Boba Fett, Embo, Latts Razzi, and other expert bounty hunters together for a rescue mission of sorts. While the voice actors associated with this arc recorded the dialogue years ago, not much else is known about the story.

Fans, however, were treated to a story reel clip at Star Wars Celebration Orlando in 2017, where Bane and Fett somehow end up on opposite ends, drawing weapons at each other. They aim and shoot, and it’s revealed that this is how Fett gets the recognizable dent on his helmet but does this mark the end for Cad Bane?

While the new season might focus more on the Jedi, Ahsoka, and the war, it’d be interesting for it to diverge for a few episodes in order to see the fates of some of these fan-favorite bounty hunters.

Bad Batch on Kashyyyk

Lots of stuff went down in Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, including the siege of the Wookiee homeworld, Kashyyyk.

Since the Battle of Kashyyyk barely had any screen time and it was overshadowed by the events of Order 66, it made sense to the show writers back then to explore and flesh out the siege through the series. That’s where the Wookiee story arc comes into play.

This unfinished story would give fans a clearer understanding of Yoda’s relationship with the Wookiees and a closer look at how Wookiee warriors differ greatly in strategy from the Republic’s clone troopers. Not only that, but it would give us an opportunity to see the Bad Batch — a group of clones with genetic mutations who operate independently — back in action again.

Next. Fans helped to revive Star Wars: The Clone Wars. dark

Whether it’s more Ahsoka development, bounty hunter infighting, or Wookiees struggling to save their planet, season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars promises to be the best one yet. What are you looking forward to seeing in the new season?
