Comic-Con 2018 - Star Wars: The Clone Wars panel start time

The Clone Wars has everything that fans want in Star Wars content and more, ranging from fun adventures for the casual fan and lore-filled foreshadowing for the die-hards.

The retrospective panel featured plenty of Star Wars guests discussing George Lucas's Emmy-winning show and its wide-spanning impact while showing off some original sketches like the ones you can see below.

Personally, I'm still holding my breath for a revival of Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars animated series. Are you as excited as us about the return of The Clone Wars?

Notable voice talent on the original series included Timeless star Matt Lanter as Anakin, Tim Curry as Chancellor Palpatine and Darth Sidious, as well as Star Wars live-action stars Ahmed Best and Anthony Daniels reprising their roles as Jar Jar Binks and C-3PO, respectively.


In typical Star Wars fashion, most details are still being kept under wraps, though StarWars.com has officially announced that the series will be revived with 12 all-new episodes on Disney's forthcoming direct-to-consumer streaming service. The series will pick up the storylines from 2013's sixth season, following Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, and Captain Rex in the lead-up to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.

As ET Online points out, Clone Wars writer Brett Friedman told a fan on Twitter way back in 2014 that the entirety of The Clone Wars seasons 7 and 8 had already been written.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars was unceremoniously canceled back in 2013, and Dave Filoni admits that he never thought that the show would ever be coming back. I think the stories left an indelible impression and, of course, George knew it would. It will air on Disney's upcoming streaming service, which means the show won't be back before 2019. "This show is so important to me and really made me fall in love with Star Wars all over again".

Star Wars: The Clone 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".
