After waiting years to wonder if it would ever get the conclusion it truly deserved, we finally have a look at the beginning of the Clone Wars’ end—and no one is prepared. Well, except Palpatine, probably.


Lucasfilm has just released our first look at the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, set to begin on Disney+ next month. The footage teases several previously known but never-seen storylines that have long been teased for the series in the wake of its initial, untimely cancellation in the aftermath of Disney’s purchase of Lucasfilm.

From the adventures of Ahsoka after she leaves the Jedi Order, to the sinister machinations of Darth Maul, it all culminates with the siege of Mandalore—as Ahsoka returns to her old master’s side one last time to help bring an end to it all. We can’t wait.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns one last time on Disney+ February 21.

Okay, so, fans of this show, I have questions:

Is the beginning of the show the appropriate place to start?

I was a big fan of Rebels, but I didn’t start Clone Wars back when it came out, so I never could bring myself to jump in. Now, I did watch the movie (I knew full well ahead of time it was bad, but I knew that’s where the characters effectively start).

So, does the show start off good, or did it have growing pains like Rebels did?
