The news that Star Wars: The Clone Wars would return on Disney+, Disney's new streaming service launching in November, was met with great enthusiasm when it was announced at San Diego Comic-Con last year. And now, we have even more great news: a premiere date!
LucasFilm's Kathleen Kennedy announced Friday at the D23 Expo 2019 that the new season would debut on Disney+ in February 2020. We're still waiting on an exact date, but February is better than nothing! And we now know the animated series will be returning with 12 all-new episodes that will mark the return of classic characters Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter) and Obi-Wan Kenobi (James Arnold Taylor), as well as fan-favorites Ahsoka Tano (Ashley Eckstein) and Captain Rex (Dee Bradley Baker).
These will be the first new episodes since 2014. After the show's fifth season concluded its run on the Cartoon Network, the series enjoyed a sixth season on Netflix, which ended on a major cliffhanger as Ahsoka left the Jedi Order for the unknown. She then popped up as a much more mature leader in Star Wars: Rebels. Hopefully these new episodes will reveal some answers as to where she was and what happened to her.
Disney+ launches on Nov. 12. Find out what else is coming to the new streaming service.
