Star Wars: The Clone Wars Comes to a CloseThursday, March 14, 2013
As brand new Star Wars adventures appear on the horizon, one chapter must first come to a close.
Lucasfilm Animation has just announced that after five fantastic seasons, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be wrapping up. But they’re not leaving any unfinished business.
“The best is yet to come,” Supervising Director Dave Filoni says in the accompanying video above, “We’re continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen.” StarWars.com promises fans more details soon about bonus content and the remainder of the saga.
Voice actor James Arnold Taylor wrote on his blog Monday, thanking fans “for letting me be your Obi-Wan Kenobi” and sharing his thoughts on the end of Clone Wars.
“It gave the first generation of Star Wars fans the chance to share their love of the franchise with their children, making new generations of fans,” Taylor wrote. “It was and is a crucial piece of the Star Wars universe and it will be greatly missed by myself and thousands upon thousands of fans across our galaxy.”
However, there is also a new hope for fans, according to Lucasfilm. “We are exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.”
