The Path To A Darker Future

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ newest season provides needed insight after unsolved mysteries of prior seasons.

After six years since its last episode in 2014, ‘The Clone Wars’ had ended almost incomplete in its storytelling, leaving fans distraught and heartbroken. Fortunately, the long awaited series has made a return- and it certainly does not disappoint.

What are the “Clone Wars”?

‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ takes place between ‘Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones’ and ‘Star Wars: Episode III- The Revenge of the Sith’, bridging the gap between a very important era in the Star Wars franchise. Despite the prequels going into Anakin Skywalker’s  descent into Darth Vader, ‘The Clone Wars’ took its time to explore a wider and more expansive universe.

Where Did We Leave Off in Season 6 of ‘The Clone Wars’?

‘The Clone Wars’ left off at season 6 with a story primarily focusing on Yoda. The old and wise Jedi master Yoda (severely clouded from the events of the Clone Wars and full of visions for the future to come), is greeted by the voice of the deceased Qui-Gon Jinn. Qui-Gon tells Yoda to go through the trials that will- eventually- lead him to become a Force Ghost.  From the final scenes of ‘Star Wars: Episode III- Revenge of the Sith’, where Yoda instructed Obi-Wan to train with the ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn, these final episodes showcased Yoda’s own journey. The finale at the time featured Yoda’s face-off against Darth Bane, eventually coming to the conclusion that the Jedi will go through more trials and tribulations. However, the series leaves off with a reveal that Yoda is told about a Skywalker other than the Anakin that we know, setting up Yoda’s role in ‘Star Wars: Episode V- The Empire Strikes Back’.

The Storyline for Season 7

Season 7 of ‘The Clone Wars’ will be 12 episodes long and will be putting connections for the final gaps between ‘Star Wars: Episode II- Attack of the Clones’ and ‘Star Wars: Episode III- The Revenge of the Sith’. Anakin Skywalker has gotten a redesign to his look to closely resemble his appearance in the final prequel film. From the looks of the trailer, it seems the final season of The Clone Wars will overlap with the events of ‘Star Wars: Episode III- The Revenge of the Sith’. The Clone Wars left off with many unanswered questions. Ahsoka Tano, Darth Maul, and Captain Rex all appear in Star Wars: Rebels, but audiences did not get to see how these characters survived the events of the monumental Order 66. The Clone Wars will fill in these final gaps in their stories, putting the missing pieces to the puzzle together at last.

My Overall Thoughts

I am really happy so see the missing part of the story finally revealed. I really loved Ahsoka and it makes me really happy to see how far she has come, since the show started. I really hope this season sheds light on what we missed from the film. It has been amazing since the start of the season, so I look forward to the finale. May the fourth with all of you!
