BY January 22, 2020

Over the next two weeks, Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker will end its theatrical run. This means that, once again, it’s possible we will never see a Skywalker on the big screen again. However, such is not the case for the small screen. Disney+ debuted a new trailer for the final season of The Clone Wars ahead of its February release date. Earlier this year, Disney+ posted, then quickly deleted a video announcing the premiere date as February 17. It now appears they deleted the video because the date has been pushed back by seven days.

The trailer for the final season of The Clone Wars also confirms that this is indeed the end of the beloved series. Originally, series co-creator Dave Filoni said that the plan was always for seven seasons, yet the series’ early cancellation threw that into doubt. The sixth season of the series was shortened, and other stories from this era found their way into other Star Wars media like novels and comics. Still, if this trailer is any indication, the last episodes of this series will be as emotional and epic as the fans expected. Let’s break down what the trailer for the final season of The Clone Wars reveals.

What to Expect From the Final Season of The Clone Wars, According to the Trailer

There are some things we always knew that this season of the show would contain. First, we know that Ahsoka Tano, Anakin Skywalker’s former padawan, would both survive the massacre of the Jedi while fighting on Mandalore. In fact, the narration in the final season trailer for The Clone Wars seems to be a monologue from Sam Witwer’s Darth Maul ahead of his confrontation with Ahsoka. We also see a glimpse of Ahsoka reacting to Order 66, feeling the deaths of her fellow Jedi in the Force. Along with this, it appears we will get a different view of the meeting of the Jedi Council in which Mace Windu senses “a plot to destroy the Jedi.” It suggests that while we thought the series would end at the beginning of Revenge of the Sith, it may carry on even past that film.

Still, we’ll be getting some final stories from the show that helped a generation grow to love the prequels. There will be new characters, epic battles, and long-awaited confrontations. And while the trailer makes it clear this is the final season of The Clone Wars is this the last we’ll see of them on Disney+? Would Disney+ bring back the series for another season if fan demand is there? Would they consider doing one-off specials filling in gaps or even animating stories like Son of Dathomir or Dark Disciple? And does this mean that the only “good” Star Wars is “old” Star Wars?

The Clone Wars final season debuts on Disney+ on February 21, 2020.
