In 2008, Dave Filoni brought Star Wars fans an amazing animated series that expanded on a conflict in the SW universe that the movies grazed over, the Clone Wars. Over the course of six seasons and taking place between the movies Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, the battle between the Separatists and the Republic army–which consisted of Clones and Jedi. At SDCC 2018, it was revealed Season 7 would be arriving to Disney+. We’re only a month away from the release of the new season, but what is this season going to be about?
Based on the trailer for the show’s return that was released in August, this season of Clone Wars is headed a few different places, and we could even see a connection between this show at Disney+’s The Mandalorian. More than likely, this season will cover the final days of the Clone Wars.
In the trailer which you can see above, Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan are seen together, and we know that Bo-Katan has possession of the Darksaber at this time–which Moff Gideon is seen holding in the final episode of The Mandalorian.
The real kicker is the appearance of Darth Maul, whose history is tied to Mandalore, as he help cause the civil war there and took it over with the Shadow Collective. He also had possession briefly of the Darksaber and caused Death Watch–the Mandalorian group–to splinter. Needless to say, Maul’s inclusion in this trailer may mean we’ll finally get to see Palpatine’s Order 66 playout in this final season, which will mark the end of the Clone Wars.
Although it’s a month away from the new season, Disney has yet to reveal exactly when the show will be hitting the service, outside of the month it will begin airing. We do know there will be 12 episodes in the season though, and we’ll keep you updated when the specific dates are revealed.
