In an interview with io9 on Feb. 21, Filoni wasn’t forthcoming with the truth that The Clone Wars overlaps with Episode III, however did level out Mace Windu’s acquainted line wasn’t an accident.
With that out of the best way, Filoni did stress that he didn’t wish to make this overlap really feel repetitive. “I’ve always, always been interested in a crossover point with the films when it got right down to it at the very end,” Filoni mentioned. “I was always interested in trying to make the audience aware of where Ahsoka was, where Captain Rex was, during sometimes critical moments that we all know from the movies. And yet maintaining the integrity of the films.”

Because he doesn’t need the collection to look prefer it’s rehashing the films, Filoni mentioned he’s not specializing in characters whose tales have been advised already. “There have been sure selections to make on this as a result of, properly, I needed to characterize the key characters of the movie—in Anakin, Obi-Wan, and Padmé— [and] I didn’t wish to do something in these final episodes that might interrupt or contradict what occurs with them in [Revenge of the Sith],” Filoni mentioned.
To do that, Filoni, after all, included them within the narrative, however extra so to assist in different characters’ tales. For this, he means Ahsoka and Rex will take middle since their arcs for this time interval haven’t performed out on display screen but.
Where does ‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7 fall within the timeline?
To rehash, Season 7 of The Clone Wars takes place after Season 6 and earlier than Revenge of the Sith. Right now, just one episode was launched so it’s powerful to say how lengthy it’ll be earlier than followers see related scenes from Episode III, like Windu speaking in regards to the plot to destroy the Jedi.
However, within the “Ahsoka’s Untold Stories” panel, Filoni did say that Ahsoka goes to Mandalore to battle for the planet’s freedom from Maul within the Siege of Mandalore. And this coincides with the start of Revenge of the Sith. That may change, however contemplating that arc principally ends the collection, followers received’t see overlap till midway via the season or so.
