Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

I guess the soonest we will find out if this is real or not will be later today. Dark Horse is supposed to be making a big announcement regarding Star Wars sometime this week...so maybe the two are possibly interconnected?

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

It's like I stated elsewhere. "Been cancelled" could also mean that Cartoon Network has ended its affiliation with the program and is jettisoning it like an escape pod, but if a few other episodes are being made they could show up on DVD and BluRay, online as downloadable content or even pop up on a channel like Disney XD. Other television series over the decades were cancelled by one network due to dropping ratings but then picked up by another one....Taxi, Diff'rent Strokes, In the Heat of the Night to name just three.

JediNews rarely posts bad information, so if they heard something from multiple sources connected to the show then there's probably some level of truth to this. I just hope we get a lot more details and very soon so the mystery will be put to rest.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

Lucasfilm has released a statement. It has been cancelled... sort of.

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.
Ok, so there will be more Clone Wars, just not on Cartoon Network. And the way they worded it seems to imply that future TCW won't merely be a new season on another network. Direct to DVD/Blu-ray? Online?

And here's the video from the link, featuring a scene from post-season 5 TCW:

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

That tease of Order 66 was awesome. I'm assuming this just means that the show will be ending next season and as previously reported, moving to Disney XD.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

I'm starting to get the distinct feeling that many people didn't actually bother to read the SW.Com bulletin or listen to/watch Dave Filoni's video statement. The series has by no means been cancelled; it's merely come to an end in its current format. Had it actually been cancelled, all production would be immediately halted and any finished material would be jettisoned as quickly as possible, but Filoni's statement makes it pretty clear that that's not what's happening.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

Wasn't the idea of this happening tossed around in the wake of the Disney buyout?
I thought I recalled someone floating the idea based on the fact that when Disney bought Marvel that Spectacular Spiderman along with Wolverine&The X-Men were both cancelled.
Something about Disney wanting to take inventory and get things under a general quality control or at least approval process?

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

I really wish people would quit bandying the word 'cancelled' about, because, as I've already pointed out, TCW has not been cancelled. Dave Filoni makes it pretty clear that he and his team are continuing to actively produce content related to the series, but had it actually been cancelled, that would not be the case; all production would be immediately halted, and anything that had already been finished would be jettisoned as quickly as possible.

For legal reasons, maybe they have to completely change the format away from anything resembling something owned by Time Warner.

Maybe a couple of Disney Channel movies.

Yet, according to the cast, it has indeed been canceled.

linky

A call from Clone Wars Producer Cary Silver and our Supervising Director Dave Filoni, letting me know that for all of us, the Star Wars journey would be coming to an end. After nearly a decade of production and five seasons on the air, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” as a television show, has been cancelled.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

A show can still be considered "cancelled", even if there's still enough material in the pipeline for further episodes. Which is what is clearly happening here.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

I re-read the official announcement again, and it does clearly say that the show will be continuing, but not on Cartoon Network, and has Dave Filoni's video presentation for season six. It appears we have a murky situation right here that still needs to be 100 percent cleared up, although I'm sticking with the LucasAnimation announcement, unless they update it or change it themselves.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

What a mess.
So there will be "more" but it will be feature length and not episodic.... here's how it reads to me:

"Get ready to wait longer for less content!"

i.e:
Clovis Arc - 2014
Order 66 Arc - 2015
Star Wars Episode 7 - 2016

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

Deadline article.

With three new Star Wars movies in the pipeline, Lucasfilm and Disney today turned its attention to the power of the Force on TV. “Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programing,” the company announced online Monday. Lucasfilm said that it’s “exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or TV programming.” What that new direction will actually be beyond “stay tuned” and will it see Star Wars on Disney XD is yet to be known – though that is where the boss is leaning.
Post-ROTJ cartoons?

I'm guessing that they'll release the remaining arcs as direct to DVD movies like they did with the Darth Maul season 4 episodes a few months ago.

The ESB-to-ROTJ timeline would also work. Though, a series bridging the gap between E6 & E7 would build audience awareness and interest in what has been happening in the GFFA for the past couple of decades.
