Lucasfilm calls time on Star Wars: The Clone Wars
Animated Cartoon Network series Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been wound down so Lucasfilm can focus on its raft of new projects...
Achieving one hundred episodes is no mean feat for a TV show (and coincidentally, the key to lucrative syndication viability) so it's with a tip of the cap and a warm handshake that we say goodbye to Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
As part of Kathleen Kennedy's shake-up, Lucasfilm has announced that the CGI animated series has been wound down to make room for other projects, and that The Clone Wars will air no further episodes on The Cartoon Network. That's not the last we've seen from the show however, as Supervising Director Dave Filoni promises that unspecified "bonus content" is planned to complete some gaps in The Clone Wars story arcs.
In addition to that content, Lucasfilm is developing a new animated series, presumably to air on Disney XD, "set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming". We'll bring you more on that as soon as it arrives.
