STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS Final Episodes Coming 2014
I've got some awesome news for all you Star Wars: The Clone Wars fans out there! Director and producer Dave Filoni has announced that the final episodes of the series will air in early 2014! Here's what he posted on his Facebook page,
Star Wars fans - I have some exciting news! We have wrapped production on all of the remaining Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes, and while that might be sad news in one way, it's good news in another. It means you will finally get to see them. When, exactly, is a detail I cannot yet share. I can confirm that in early 2014 you will be watching the final episodes of The Clone Wars, including one of Master Yoda's most challenging missions. So, get ready. We've got Clone Wars and Rebels coming at you in 2014. Animated Star Wars is alive and well. Trust in the Force my friends."
There's no word on whether the episodes will air on Cartoon Network or Disney XD, but at least we know they are coming. The series will be replaced by Disney and Lucasfilm's Star Wars: Rebels, and I'm excited to see what that new series delivers!
The series is set between the events of Episode III and IV -- an era spanning almost two decades never-before explored on-screen. It takes place in a time where the Empire is securing its grip on the galaxy and hunting down the last of the Jedi Knights as a fledgling rebellion against the Empire is taking shape.
That series is set to premiere in the fall of 2014.
