Fans of The Clone Wars have waited for a conclusion to the beloved sequence because it was canceled in 2013. After its fifth season, Lucasfilm gave it the boot to go a unique route with its animation, however the followers’ fervor and love for the present introduced it again to Disney+. While there was supposed to be two extra seasons, this closing one will lastly bridge the hole between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith like Dave Filoni and George Lucas supposed.

The new ‘The Clone Wars’ trailer exhibits a pregnant Padmé

The Season 7 trailer premiered Jan. 22 to a lot anticipation and was greeted with much more pleasure; it already has 8 million views between YouTube and Twitter. As acknowledged above, these followers are devoted and the trailer delivered on all the things they’ve been ready for. Not solely did Maul and Ahsoka take up the primary focus of the trailer, however it additionally exhibits its connection to Revenge of the Sith

When Mace Windu mentions the “plot to destroy the Jedi,” quick followers already linked it to the live-action model. But that’s not the one half. Anakin Skywalker can also be proven reaching at a hologram of Padmé Amidala, and she or he has a noticeable bump. She’s additionally in an identical outfit to what she wears to Mustafar in Revenge of the Sith. That final bit isn’t as essential although; she’s worn an identical outfit on The Clone Wars in previous seasons, as she does with numerous her Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith outfits.

Some are saying that it creates a timeline plot gap for ‘Revenge of the Sith,’ however not so quick

Screen Rant and CBR level out that this would possibly already introduce a plot gap. The motive being the timeline of when she tells Anakin she’s pregnant. The first scene again on Coruscant, after Anakin and Obi-Wan come again from saving Palpatine, is when she tells him in regards to the infants (child on the time). Screen Rant states that since The Clone Wars takes place earlier than Revenge of the Sith, this would possibly mess up Star Wars continuity. 

However, that’s not the case. As the trailer exhibits and as Filoni has mentioned, this season occurs similtaneously Episode III. We, after all, don’t know precisely when it begins, however Season 7 will present the Jedi Purge (aka Order 66), which happens on the finish of Revenge of the Sith. So even when Season 7 begins earlier than Revenge of the Sith, when Padmé tells Anakin in regards to the being pregnant, components of the season will interconnect. 

This implies that this holochat is most probably already after he is aware of she’s pregnant. Possibly proper earlier than and even after he’s pledged himself to Palpatine (if we’re to go by her outfit). Plus, it doesn’t look like Filoni would retcon one thing so simply noticeable. 

What can we anticipate from ‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7?

The motive we already know what arcs are most probably going to look in Season 7 is due to the “Untold Clone Wars” panel at Star Wars Celebration in 2015. Filoni and Lucas’ plans had been laid out for a way the sequence would present Order 66 and end the narrative of the Clone Wars. And the trailer confirmed lots.

Both the panel and trailer present an emphasis on the Clones and the place they stand because the battle involves an finish. The reappearance of Maul and Mandalore is a serious centerpiece of the season, with the culminating Siege of Mandalore coinciding with the Jedi Purge within the timeline. Ahsoka’s emotions and journey after leaving the Jedi Order goes to be proven, and the way she finally ends up main as Commander once more for the siege. Plus, her battle with Maul might be one of many greatest moments this season. 

There’s lots to sit up for, even when plot factors are already on the market on the place that is heading. But plot holes are one thing we will’t know till it’s launched.
