Actor Dee Bradley Baker teases Star Wars: The Clone Wars SDCC panel, saying we won’t want to miss it. We have a theory.
With San Diego Comic-Con starting this week, Star Wars fans are excited for exclusive collectibles, running through the Lucas Pavilion and the Star Wars: The Clone Wars panel on the 10-year anniversary of the show.
We’ve learned who will be there, but another tease has gotten fans of the show even more excited about the panel, which will be held June 19 at 11:45 am PT. Dee Bradley Baker, who voiced the clones – all of them – told fans on Twitter they won’t want to miss it.
But why? Of course, we won’t want to miss it. Yet, somehow Baker tweeting this makes it feel like something more is going to happen that just a panel discussion.

While there are a number of possibilities on why we “can’t miss” the panel, the biggest theory is The Clone Wars will actually have a real finale. While The Clone Wars aired on Cartoon Network, Disney had bought Star Wars from Lucasfilm. The show was unceremoniously scrapped, even though it was popular and one of the most-watched animated shows on television. We only got the sixth season episodes through Netflix.
Perhaps, 10 years later – with the success of the animated series Star Wars Rebels and excitement for the upcoming Star Wars Resistance – The Clone Wars will get a revival if only to finish the stories that never got to be told.
The Clone Wars was great for Star Wars fans because it gave them much of what was lacking from the prequels trilogy. It showed the love story of Anakin and Padme, the bond between Obi-Wan and Anakin. It also gave depth to characters we only briefly met in the prequels, creating lasting characters that fans have grown to love.
While there are some fans not happy with the current direction of the movie, giving The Clone Wars a finale seems like an easier fix. The main characters still seem invested in the show and with one another.
Of course, just getting some of the cast and Dave Filoni back to chat for a panel is great anyway, and a nice surprise. But there could be even bigger surprises in store for us.
