Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

This is just my take and I can't be certain, but I guess some animated programs go ahead and greenlight at least a few episodes of a new TV season just to have a handful in the bag and ready to go if the show is renewed and continues.

Animation can often take so long to complete and edit together into a coherent, linear program that Filoni and the crew probably didn't have the luxury of just waiting around to see if the series was renewed for Season 6. They had to be working at making new episodes just in case they got the go-ahead from the suits.

Did they only make a few episodes for S6 or did they manage a full season?

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

As I understand it only a handful of new episodes were completed at the time the cancellation announcement was made. They were nowhere near a complete season's worth of stories....not even close.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

And yet they are "continuing" production. So they should be able to complete any stories they want to tell and not leave anything big hanging.

I'm kinda dissapointed we won't be seeing Detours, but it will be interesting to see what new series they come up with instead.

You know it doesn't sound the show had been cancelled, it just sounds like their just going to start wrapping it up.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

This season was really divided into four episode arcs, that when aired back-to-back, are essentially two-hour TV movies. I wouldn't be surprised if "season six" is maybe a couple of TV movies to wrap up the series.

Well, what we know we are getting for stories is:
-A story about a botched Clone going "66" (in the HD clip widely circulating)
-The return to "Clovis" Arc
-Something involving Gregor (the only redeeming feature of that god awful Gaston arc)


Assuming that's a minimal arc of 3 episodes and the possibility that Gregor is in one of the other two arcs... that's 6 episodes minimum and 12 episodes max. I'd say they have a large chunk of what was to be season 6 mapped out.

There was also IIRC, Filoni mused about explaining Maul's survival from being cut in two.

The only thing I feel cheated out of is seeing Ahsoka and Ventress teamed up long term... but if that happens to be a spin off series that would be kind of radical.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

I hope you're right. I'd hate to wait months to see unaired Season 6 material and get just three or four episodes and that's all she wrote. I want to know what happens to characters like Maul, Captain Rex, Cad Bane and Hondo.

I'm sure all of those questions and more will be answered in the fullness of time.

Star Wars has a long way to go...

Here are parts one and two of Ashley Eckstein's three-part "exit interview" with Newsarama. Part three was supposed to go up today, but alas, it did not.

You know, for a second there it was almost as if Disney had killed The Clone Wars before Filoni had a chance to screw up Order 66.

But I'm not that lucky.

I take it that means it wasn't already explained?

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

If there was another explanation I must have missed it. I thought his survival was explained in the scenes where Savage finds his brother in hiding and when the two of them hook up with Mother Talzin the Nightsister.

Well, the Talzin stuff didn't explain how he survived being bisected in the first place. Is "it was because of my hatred" ( paraphrased ) supposed to be the explanation? That never worked for me, and when I watch the Maul episodes it feels like they're hinting that there may have been more to it than that.

Re: Breaking News: THE CLONE WARS Has Been Cancelled

My memory of some of the dialogue is kind of hazy, so I thought there might have been more to it than that. Thanks for clarifying.

I did have an online friend and fan of the show speculate that Maul survived because he originally fell down a long shaft with native Naboo plasma and gases circulating at the bottom, and that the preservative effects of those on Maul's nervous system and wounds somehow kept him alive until he could be retrieved and escape. It was just a wild theory from an enthusiastic fan, but it makes as much sense as most of the others I've heard since the end of Season 4.
