Final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars gets epic trailer for Disney+ premiere

Star Wars: The Clone Wars | Official Trailer | Disney+

Star Wars fans feeling the pain of not having any new movies or seasons of The Mandalorian on the horizon can take heart: A new season of The Clone Wars is coming soon.

Disney released a new, epic trailer for the acclaimed animated series’ seventh and final season ahead of its premiere on the Disney+ streaming service. Season 7 will debut February 21 on Disney+ kicking off a new, 12-episode story arc that will bring the award-winning show to its long-awaited conclusion.

Set between the events of Star Wars: Episode II — Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the SithThe Clone Wars premiered in 2008 and quickly became one of the highest-rated shows on Cartoon Network and earned near-universal praise for its exploration of the eventful period between those two live-action Star Wars films. It was nominated for both Daytime Emmy Awards and Annie Awards during its six-season run, which ended in 2014 when the show was canceled without a proper series finale.

The Clone Wars follows the adventures of Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi as they attempt to navigate the war between the Trade Federation’s Separatists and the Galactic Republic while simultaneously dealing with the re-emergence of the Sith, who are working behind the scenes to manipulate the war to their own ends. Although Anakin and Obi-Wan feature prominently in the series — as well as Yoda and other popular characters from the films — the show primarily focuses on the experiences of Ahsoka Tano, Anakin’s padawan, who is training to become a Jedi during this turbulent time.

The trailer for the season 7 of The Clone Wars showcases Ahsoka’s struggle to reconcile the lessons she learned during her Jedi training with the war’s effects on the Jedi Order, and also teases a showdown between Ahsoka and Darth Maul, the former Sith Lord who was presumed dead after the events of Star Wars: Episode I — The Phantom Menace, but lived to become a key figure in the events of The Clone Wars. With the first season of The Mandalorian featuring multiple references to the events of The Clone Wars, it’s likely that the show’s final season could draw both series’ stories closer together.

Dave Filoni, who served as the supervising director on The Clone Wars during its original run and also directed two episodes of The Mandalorian (including the series premiere), will reprise his role behind the camera for The Clone Wars‘ final season.

Season 7 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars premieres February 21 on Disney+. All six prior seasons of The Clone Wars, as well as the feature-length animated movie based on the series, are currently available on Disney+.

In 2022, Disney+ and Lucasfilm unveiled Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi, a six-part series of animated shorts. A second season was announced soon after, and it's now just a month away. However, the show has undergone a name change to Star Wars: Tales of the Empire, and it's about to dive into even darker territory. Disney+ has dropped the first trailer for Tales of the Empire, and it chronicles the story of two women who embrace the Dark Side of the Force.

Dafne Keen as Jecki in Star Wars: The Acolyte.

Star Wars: The Acolyte aims to be one of the more unique additions to the Star Wars universe. This upcoming series will give audiences their first look into the world of the Jedi during the age of the High Republic. Specifically, it will follow the Jedi near the end of this era as they investigate a string of crimes that will have them uncover evil forces brewing in the shadows.

Due to the open-ended nature of this piece of Star Wars history, fans can only imagine what The Acolyte will add to the franchise. But until it premieres, here's hoping the show will feature these five things in its first season.

Everything is possible in new Doctor Who season 14 trailer
Ncuti Gatwa as the Doctor in Doctor Who.

So far, Doctor Who fans have only seen Ncuti Gatwa's 15th Doctor in a cameo appearance in the final 60th anniversary special and in a single Christmas special last year. While it's too early to say what kind of Doctor that Gatwa will be, he sure has a winning smile in the new trailer for Doctor Who season 14. The latest preview from the upcoming season is very light on story details, but off the charts in terms of the chemistry between the Doctor and his new companion, Ruby Sunday (Millie Gibson). Ruby seems a lot like the Doctor's previous companions Rose Tyler and Amy Pond. But if these clips are any indication, Ruby's going to grow into the role.

Don't be confused by BBC's branding, which pretends that this is an all-new Doctor Who series. BBC tried the same trick before back in the fifth season when Matt Smith took over the role of the time-traveling Doctor. It's not a reboot, but it does feature the signature flare of Russell T Davies, the showrunner who relaunched Doctor Who in 2005. That may be why the latest trailer for the new season feels like a throwback to that era.
