Either way, at least we're getting sixth season content. When Cartoon Network pulled the plug there were more than a few of us who thought Ahsoka walking slowly away into the Coruscant sunset would be the last thing we'd see and there'd be no adequate story bridge between the series and Revenge of the Sith.
Wasn't it Disney and not Cartoon who pulled the plug?

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

Well, that's a given at this point since the cancellation came on the heels of the Disney takeover so they were connected. I just meant the official cancellation announcement from Cartoon Network. Disney can issue an edict ordering production to stop but the official cancellation itself was in the hands of the network and they're the ones who had to formally pull the plug.

For instance, NBC cancelled the original Trek, not Desilu or Paramount, while on the other hand Disney decided it was time for The Clone Wars to end. Sometimes the studio kills a project before a network even has the chance to make a call.

I don't believe it was CN given how badly they were doing, TCW was one of their few bright spots.

The way I heard it was Clone Wars was going to Disney XD then somewhere it came out that it was in fact cancelled by Disney, not Cartoon Network.

If that's the case then thanks for the correction. Studio and network politics can often be a mess to sort through.

So basically Disney did the same thing to The Clone Wars that they did to The Spectacular Spider-Man?

^Well, yes, exactly. Spectacular was a Sony co-production, but Sony gave up the TV rights to Spider-Man in exchange for getting to keep the movie rights. And once Marvel had the TV rights back, they elected to end SSM and make their own show instead, which is why we're now stuck with the vastly inferior Ultimate Spider-Man.

My mistake, I thought that happened after Disney had control of Marvel.

^Err, maybe it was. It might've been Sony and Disney that made the deal about how to divvy up the Spider-Man rights. I'm not sure of the timing.

Just like bad Star Wars stories, including ones that trash previous continuity while managing to miss the point of Attack of the Clones.

Regarding the Clone Wars Season 5 DVD, what did they do with "Revival"? Did they keep it as the first episode, since it aired as a season premier on TV, or did they move it back to being part of the Darth Maul arc?
