Star Wars: The Clone Wars is set to return with some new episodes on Disney’s streaming service. Here’s what we would like to see.
I wasn’t big on Star Wars when The Clone Wars first premiered in 2008. I dove into the universe years after that, so it was only recently that I fell in love with the show by binge watching it on Netflix.
Since the show already had all of the episodes available by the time I watched it, I wasn’t fully aware of the sudden cancellation it went through until I had some friends tell me about it. Later, some lost episodes were released that apparently tied up loose ends, but I never got around to finding those.
With this new announcement, I’m hopeful that we’ll get to see certain things happen, even though we’re only getting 12 episodes. I have faith in Dave Filoni’s vision when it comes to anything Star Wars.
Anakin and Ahsoka
The way Ahsoka left towards the end of the show was a bit painful to watch. I had become such a huge fan of the character as I binged on the episodes. You could tell that it had an impact on Anakin, too, but at that point, it was easy to see him leaning towards the dark side.
Hopefully we get to see the two interact in person, instead of just via a holo video that closes out the trailer. Based on what happened with the two in Rebels, we know that something goes down between the two shows. This is the perfect opportunity to fill in that blank a little more.

Does the war actually end?
In the trailer, it notes that the war was unfinished, so will we actually get to see the end of it? We have a good idea of how things play out based on the movies, but there’s still part of me that wants to see that final moment where the war ceases.
With only 12 episodes, I don’t want to get too greedy, though. Those are the two main things that I want to see, but it would also be great to see characters like Padmé (or maybe even Saw Guerrera) return briefly. Could we even see Asajj Ventress or Darth Maul? With Ventress, she is the main focus in Dark Disciple by Christie Golden, which is based on unfinished episodes from the show. However, it would be nice to just get a glimpse of her surviving that fall off of the cliff.
For the most part, I’m just thrilled that we’re getting more episodes of this show. Dave Filoni knows how to tell great stories and I’m looking forward to whatever he dishes out for us.
