So, season 5 of the Clone Wars is coming up this fall, and we are SUPER EXCITED! 😀 The new season should be epic.
Every year since the first season, back in 2008 I believe, the animation, acting, and story lines have become better and better. What started with doubt over the adding of a padawan for Anakin, has turned into a show that most Star Wars fans now accept as a true Star Wars series. I think a lot of the change in attitude is because of the shows growing maturity.
Anyway, we know a few things about the upcoming season, thanks in part to interviews with people who work on the Clone Wars TV show, and in part to a trailer that you can watch here.
One thing we know is that we will be seeing a lot more of Death Watch in season 5. I think thats a good thing. Fans of the Mando’s argue that the Clone Wars hasn’t given them enough screen time. In part, I agree. They are a big part of Star Wars, and until last season they were strangely absent. This has apparently been fixed now. I’m guessing that Death Watch, Lux Bonterri, and Ahsoka will somehow all be tangled up together again.
Of course, we will see much more of the two sith brothers. When you bring back a character like Maul to the Clone Wars, he’s going to be given a lot of screen time because it’s a big move to move him from ‘presumed dead’ to ‘alive in the Clone Wars’. Personally, I’d much rather focus on things that AREN’T in the movies. I mean, we know who the sith are. We know how they work. Why not focus on something less understood? Oh well, I’m sure it’ll still be great to watch.
A huge plus about this upcoming season to me is that Dave Filoni, the director of the Clone Wars tv show has said on his Facebook page that Ahsoka will “face one of her biggest challenges ever.” OMG! That’ll be fun to see for sure! Could this be the season where her fate is finally explained? Don’t bet on it. Clone Wars has at least two more seasons after season five, and they’re going to need Ahsoka’s continued appearances to attract young female fans.
So, now you know a little bit about what to expect. If you haven’t done so yet, head over to Star Wars.com to watch the official Clone Wars season five trailer. It’s short, but all we have for now.
