Ventress could be a good villain for the new films. Though I have to wonder if Maul might not be resurrected for the new films, courtesy of the Clone Wars. He too would make a good villain.
I think Maul would be hard to explain to those who have only seen the films while Ventress would be a blank slate to those without a history of her.
I don't think either scenario is insurmountable. It wouldn't take much to explain that Maul was restored by dark side magic. Plus Maul remains a very visible figure in Star Wars, due to the recent Phantom Menace 3-D, the Clone Wars cartoon, and other media.

With Ventress, being a blank slate for a new movie could be a benefit. Her back story won't have to be explained in much detail anyway. If she does come back, I could see her as Sith Lord in her own right and the other Star Wars films have gotten along fairly well without exploring much history for Palpatine, Maul, or Dooku.
But Ventress' story arc in TCW has taken her in a different direction of late. She's even trying to get pardoned. Wouldn't it be convoluted to have her go back to "evil" status in the end?

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I found it hard to believe that in exchange for telling her the address of an abandoned warehouse, Ahsoka expected to get Ventress off for mass murder of civilians, killing several Jedi, torture, kidnapping, theft, and conspiring with the enemy.

It's because Ahsoka is being forced into putting herself into that kind of a position for the first time in her life.

I don't think so. Similar to her last comics arc, Ventress is in a gray area so far on the show. She could go either way. There are strains of goodness in her but there is still the darkness too. A Ventress who has struggled between the light and dark and eventually chosen the dark could be a very dangerous villain indeed.

I see Ashoka running off with Ventress to form a highly successful Thelma and Louise inspired bounty hunter buddy team spin-off cartoon, novel, comic and or video game.

Or something like that.

I do like where it is going, though. If Ahsoka and Anakin are effectively separated and then there is another several months or even a year before Episode III starts, we could see how Anakin would be "out of sight out of mind" with Ahsoka. He obviously has his hands full as the Clone Wars ends!

Plus, we'll get to see the effects of Anakin and Ahsoka as they grow apart from each other... and I'd be genuinely curious how Ahsoka handles exile... who knows? Maybe she does "go dark" and ends up a bounty hunter or something.

With each passing episode I become...
a) more convinced
b) more stoked
...that she'll be in the sequel trilogy. I don't think it's fanwank... I think properly casted, Ahsoka would be an excellent character. Maybe we'll even get to see her interact with force-ghost-Anakin.

I guess we are likely to get a season six and likely not to get a season seven? Sure wish DisneyTV could confirm that they are airing the next season.

Yeah but seeing that it premieres around same time as the 3-D films, that promo might not be up to the minute.

And then there's Detours.

My guess is there will definitely be a sixth and probably final season of Clone Wars, then the move will be on to OT era storytelling in support of the new trilogy.

Not sure what make of the spoilers there. It could happen, but I don't know....

That might be interesting. Would Mark Hamill be willing to play Luke again, I wonder? He's certainly a very successful voice actor, but I wonder how he'd feel about returning to that role -- which, frankly, is one of his lesser accomplishments as an actor.
