Star Wars: The Clone Wars panel livestream from Celebration!
Straight from Star Wars Celebration 2019 you can watch the full Star Wars: The Clone Wars sneak peek panel livestream in the player below! Dave Filoni and special guests celebrate the return of Star Wars: The Clone Wars and share a sneak peek at what’s to come. Everything kicks off at 4:30 PM E.T.
It was announced last year at San Diego Comic-Con that the animated series will return with 12 all-new episodes on Disney+. Created by George Lucas, the show first aired in 2008 and became an entry point into Star Wars for an entire generation, following fan-favorites like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Padmé Amidala, while introducing major new characters like Jedi Padawan Ahsoka Tano and Captain Rex. It became a multi-Emmy winner and is now regarded as essential Star Wars.
But it was never finished. The Clone Wars ended after five broadcast seasons — just as Ahsoka left the Jedi Order. A few post-Season Five episodes were later released as “The Lost Missions,” but the story wasn’t over.
“Any opportunity to put the final pieces of the story in place is meaningful as a storyteller,” said Filoni. “I’m happy for the opportunity to define these things and the end of this part of the Clone War. It also makes me reflect on all the people that I got to work with over the years. It reinforces the things I learned from George. It reminds me of the important elements that go into making Star Wars. So, it’s nice on several levels, and I think for the crew that’s still here that worked on Clone Wars, they feel that, as well.”
Star Wars Celebration is an exciting convention filled with entertainment, celebrity appearances, stage shows, panels, interactive events, exclusive merchandise, screenings, and once-in-a-lifetime glimpses into the future of the epic saga. The event, celebrating its 20th anniversary, will take place from April 11-15, 2019, at McCormick Place in Chicago. The event is produced by Lucasfilm in collaboration with ReedPOP.
