10 best episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars on Netflix

At a Comic-Con panel celebrating the 10th anniversary of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a huge announcement shocked the room: The Clone Wars is coming back for more episodes.

The season will run for 12 episodes and be overseen by the supervising producer of the original, Dave Filoni.

A new graphic featuring the hashtag #CloneWarsSaved was also revealed during the panel, which Filoni mentioning before the announcement that he's received countless requests from fans to save The Clone Wars - even though at the time it was out of his hands. The catch, though? It will be exclusive to Disney's upcoming streaming service.

It's now been revealed that Sir Tom is suffering from a bacterial infection, for which he's currently being treated in hospital. Ticket-holders for the Stansted Park gig have been offered a full refund through their point of purchase.

"Well, thankfully, their enthusiasm is relentless". I actually think their voice has gotten louder as the years have gone by.

"Personally, it's very rewarding". "I honestly didn't think we would ever have the opportunity to return to The Clone Wars", says Filoni. Any opportunity to put the final pieces of the story in place is meaningful as a storyteller. Several authors picked up those plot lines and wrote them into novels, such as Star Wars: Ahsoka Tano and Star Wars: Dark Disciple. Introduced as the Padawan apprentice of Skywalker, Tano would grow to become the main focus of The Clone Wars. Ahsoka gave kids a character that was like them - someone their age that was experiencing life's challenges and learning along the way. The Clone Wars was also where we learned that the villainous Darth Maul, who battled Qui-Gon Jinn and Obi-Wan in live-action in Episode I: The Phantom Menace, survived the events of that epic lightsaber fight and ended up with mechanical legs.

As Lucasfilm announced to a surprised fandom at San Diego Comic Con on Thursday, The Clone Wars - the animated series set between Episodes II and II - is getting one more season, five years after its abrupt cancelation.
