Comic-Con 2018: New Trailer For Star Wars The Clone Wars Season 7 Brings Back Ahsoka
Welcome back Ahsoka, we missed you.
In a huge surprise, Disney revealed that animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars is getting a Season 7. The news was shared at San Diego Comic-Con 2018, where fans got their first look at an older Anakin, Obi-Wan, Rex, and Ahsoka in a new trailer, which you can watch below. A total of 12 new episodes of the animated series are officially coming to Disney's upcoming streaming service, although a specific release date has not yet been announced.
After being canceled on Cartoon Network, the animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars returned for a sixth season on Netflix. The final season was shorter than the five that proceeded it and left many of supervising director Dave Filoni's stories unresolved, such as the fate for Ahsoka Tano, Captain Rex, Maul, and Asajj Ventress. Several authors picked up those plot lines and wrote them into novels, such as Star Wars: Ahsoka and Star Wars: Dark Disciple, but viewers were left with more questions than answers.
Based on the SDCC trailer, The Clone Wars' seventh season seems to pick up close to the start of Revenge of the Sith. Anakin and Obi-Wan are called in to take a hologram call, only to see that it's with Anakin's former apprentice Ahsoka and Mandalorian warrior Bo-Katan Kryze. In Ahsoka, we learn that Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Ahsoka reunite on Mandalore after Ahsoka leaves the Jedi Order. The three, along with Clone Captain Rex and Commander Cody, go on to fight together in one last battle: the Siege of Mandalore.
Near the end of the siege, Anakin and Obi-Wan are called away to return to Coruscant to rescue Chancellor Palpatine, kidnapped by General Grievous. The two Jedi leave Ahsoka behind and in charge of Anakin's 501st Legion of clone troopers. It's at this point that the three's paths diverge, with Anakin and Obi-Wan's rescue mission being the opening scene of Revenge of the Sith and Ahsoka's solo command during the Siege of Mandalore being the opening narration of Star Wars: Ahsoka. Ahsoka supposedly never meets Obi-Wan again, but discovers Darth Vader is her former master and faces off against him in the second season of Star Wars: Rebels.
It's still a mystery whether The Clone Wars Season 7 is entirely focused on the Siege of Mandalore or split between several different conflicts that occurred prior to the opening hours of Revenge of the Sith. If possible, we'd love to see more of Ahsoka and what happens to her between The Clone Wars and Rebels.
At SDCC 2018, Lucasfilm also announced new Star Wars' stories that will flesh out characters from the prequel era of the movies, like Padme and Qui-Gon Jinn.
