TCW Bonus Content coming early 2014!

Dave Filoni, supervising director of The Clone Wars, has announced on his twitter and facebook accounts that the remaining episodes of the show have been finished, and should be released sometime early next year. Read the full text of his announcement below!

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.
– Dave

Though I was hoping for the rest of the episodes a little sooner, at least we have an approximate date for when to be expecting them. Discuss your feelings in the comments section!

Season Five Update

20120608-125251.jpg
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.

Updated Blog Design!

Well, since we’ve been using the same old booooring style for a while now, I thought it was time for a change.
The old header image especially needed an upgrade. That one image just…did not look like Ahsoka. (If you’ve been here in the last few months, you might know what I’m talking about).

This new design is fresh, and feels more current. Also, the so called ‘sticky’ posts that are super important will now always be a the top of the home page.

Thanks for all your guys’ feedback and we look forward to posting more interesting and relevant content as Clone Wars Season 5 approaches. (Season 5 is due this fall. You’ll notice there is now a countdown on the left hand side for it! )

Please let us know what you think of the switch in design by commenting below 😀
