Some Clone Wars News Coming?

From Jedi News and Rebel Force Radio:

Our special guest on this week’s RebelForce Radio will be Supervising Director and Executive Producer of Star Wars Rebels Dave Filoni who discusses the return of Ahsoka Tano and how it all evolved. We get into a serious discussion about Ahsoka’s future on the show and Dave reveals, “I wouldn’t have brought her back if she couldn’t be involved and if there wasnt an important story to tell.” But,he also warns “I wouldn’t say that Ahsoka Tano is fundamental to the creation of the rebellion.” Plus, Dave teases some exciting news coming for fans of The Clone Wars. And what about a final showdown between Ahsoka and Vader? You have to listen tomorrow (March 13) to find out what Dave has to say!

I do NOT think there’s going to be a surprise announcement the show’s going to be revived. But given Clone Wars writer Brent Friedman’s recent comments that one of the unaired arcs might see the light of day and given Matt Lanter commented a few months ago that he voiced Anakin again, I wouldn’t be surprised if this means more Lost Missions on Netflix.

Update:  I haven’t listened to the podcast but those who have say there’s going to be a Clone Wars “surprise” at Celebration.

    YES! There were supposed to be three full 3-4 episode arcs featuring Ahsoka that were in some form of development. I’d love to see them just finish up those arcs and release them straight to Netflix/Blu Ray. Disney could even promote them during advertisement time on Rebels. It would make economic sense.

    But the great thing about this news is that it’s pretty clear Disney now realizes they opened up a can of stupid when they cancelled Clone Wars and there is a sizable fan base for more Clone Wars episodes.

    One of the things I’ve found particularly amusing is Ahsoka’s performance in this years Star Wars This Is Madness tournament… for a good chunk of the day yesterday she was trending ahead of Luke Skywalker in the play in round… bashers quickly turned to Twitter and flooded the voting. But Luke still is only slightly ahead of Ahsoka with 49% of the vote compared to Ahsoka at 43%. Hysterically both Kanan and Ezra, who you would think would be real popular right now, can only manage a combined 7% with Kanan accounting for 5% of that.

    It’s pretty clear nostalgia for Clone Wars is running high and Disney/Lucasfilm would be smart to tap into that as much as possible.

    BTW, go vote for Ahsoka now… there’s still enough time to knock off Luke

    This sounds great, I’d love to see a few episodes or an arc finished up, even it’s presented as a “micro-series” or maybe just edited into a movie-length format. This could then be released on Netflix as before as well as DVD/BR, VOD, etc. Makes sense for Disney to keep adding content for all groups of fans possible, including TCW generation.

      I agree, I’d take any Clone Wars episodes, no matter how many or how short/long they end up being.

    One thing I’ll say– if they do release new TCW content, I hope it’s produced in the same full, widescreen style as the original show. Watching “Rebels” has been such a diminished experience for me. I kinda suspect we’ll see TCW scripts given a “Rebels” budget.

      I haven’t watched Rebels at all yet. I’m not hugely motivated to be honest. I’m not hostile towards it by any means, but Star Wars without George Lucas has only ever generated a passing interest in me.

      It’s worth noting that I haven’t watched Season 6 of The Clone Wars either, or the Lost Missions, but that’s largely because they haven’t been made available where I am as yet.

      I’m currently making my way back through the saga though, in response to Mike Klimo’s Ring Theory essay, and I intend to dig back into Clone Wars afterwards.

      Maybe I’ll check out Rebels when I’m done, though I’m disappointed to hear that it’s not been ‘shot’ widescreen.

    What’s more is that, i’ve heared people complain about Padme’s condition being completely curable considering the level of technology depicted in the movies…
    Well…if that’s the case…how come Vader’s electronics didn’t(?) have this very basic thing we call a ******* FARRADAY cage?

    I love these kinds of articles digging deep into ”small” details like the ”heartbeats going off at the same time”…because THAT’s the genius ”small stuff” Lucas has been doing all along since THX-1138…

      Not really. She still thinks TPM is about trade tariffs and still hates Jar Jar for no apparent reason.

      • Tony Ferris Says:

        True LOL

        But at least she’s acknowledging that it might be her issue. Might be!
