Oh please, it's just moving to Disney XD. We already know they've been writing Season Six. And we know of three episodes they cut from airing that are in the can.

Yeah... unless I hear otherwise, I'm thinking this was just the announcement about Cartoon Network dropping the show, misinterpreted as the show being cancelled altogether.

Ahsoka leaving the Jedi Order and walking off into the distance was the end.
It would benefit the story if it ended that way, since the future of all CW stories--Revenge of the Sith--makes no reference to Ahsoka, a revived Maul or other CW characters at all, as though it never happened.
So how does never telling us what ultimately happened to revived Maul benefit the story?

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

This has come up on starwars.com

As we enter into an exciting new era focused on the next Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming. We are exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.

As part of this shift, we have also made some key decisions affecting Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Detours.
After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we feel the time has come to wind down the series. While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we're continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen.
Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content. In the video below, Supervising Director Dave Filoni offers a peek of what is to come in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

At Star Wars Celebration VI last year, George Lucas gave fans a glimpse at the animated comedy series Star Wars Detours from Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Todd Grimes. Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we've decided to postpone the release of Detours until a later date.

We are incredibly proud of the teams at Lucasfilm Animation for creating some of the most amazing animation ever produced for TV. Keep checking StarWars.com for new developments on these and future projects.

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

Well, I said "unless I hear otherwise," and this is pretty definitively otherwise. So they were producing new TCW episodes, but now those will be "bonus content" and they're still trying to figure out what to do with them. It sounds like they're sticking with the arc format, so maybe these could be released as direct-to-video movies, or TV-movie premieres on Disney XD or something.

As for Detours, I didn't have much interest in that, but postponing it to "a later date" -- which from the sound of it could be quite a few years from now -- doesn't seem like a very nice move. And I don't see how a parody show would hurt the prospects for the movies.

The new animated series in the "untouched" period sounds interesting. I wouldn't be surprised if it's set in the gap between Episodes VI and VII, as a tie-in/lead-in to the new trilogy. Although I keep thinking they should just take the scripts they've written for the live-action show (which is supposedly too hard to shoot in live action with current technology) and make them in animation.

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

Detours just doesn't interest me that much to be frank. Seth Green and his coterie of writers and performers can sometimes strike comedy gold and have made many hilarious episodes of Robot Chicken over the years, but Detours doesn't strike me as a project that would be terribly entertaining or successful based on what we've heard thus far. I don't know if the concept of a weekly or recurring animated comedy series set in the SW universe would have the legs to remain viable for very long.

It sounds like an idea that would be better served as a Web series or downloadable content, but I guess only time will tell if this idea will ever fly.

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

Well...I take back what I said in the other thread now, this is disappointing news indeed. What a way to go out though as others said. "Detours" looked fun, but it didn't really capture me in any way more than that. As House of UIster I think mentioned before, the series was supposed to originally go five series or 100 episodes. It will be interesting to see what happens now.

Might it be that we see these arcs explored another way? In comic book form etc?

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

As reported in the other thread (maybe we need both of these to be merged now?) it seems it's not ending...but "winding down" as reported before moving to Disney XD and next season will be the final season. Dave Filoni posted a tease of next season in the other thread.

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

Filoni and Co. are still actively producing TCW-related content, which should be enough to let people know that the series hasn't actually been cancelled; its time as an actively televised series has come to an end, but just as Buffy the Vampire Slayer and ANGEL continued on in different formats, so too will TCW. We're going to get a conclusion to the series; it just won't be in the form of a weekly aired cartoon.

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

I can't say I'm sorry to see the parody series pushed into the future--but I wouldn't have watched it so it wouldn't have bothered me either way. I wonder if somebody at Disney put the brakes on that. Hard to see Star Wars being over-commercialized more than it already is but maybe there's a concern for 'appropriate' use of the characters. (cue the jar-jar shampoo bottle commercial)

Shouldn't a Jar-Jar product be, well, in a jar?

Jar Jar Jams and JIF?

Don't give them any ideas.
