    Whether or not that do that would probably depend on what Rian Johnson, and the Game of Thrones guys have planned for their movies.
    I'd rather see the shows give us a deeper look at the familiar eras, and leave it to the movies to establish new ones.
    The overview of the Star Wars news from the Disney+ panel does say that the it will be Dave Filoni's opportunity to finish the series, and that it will "provide the epic conclusion to the critically acclaimed series that fans have been asking for, bringing the story up to the events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith and Order 66". So it does sound like this will definitely be the end of the show with the title "The Clone Wars".

    Count me as one who's been expecting that this is the end of Clone Wars. Whatever comes next on the animated front from Lucasfilm, it'll be a new show.

    As for live action Ahsoka, I've been hoping she'd show up in the Obi-Wan show for about the past 6 months.

    Rather he had a crack at it than those two. I feel like he has the better grasp of the Star Wars universe, even if Rebels was meh.

    I'm still holding out hope for a young Leia show at some point. That seems like a more natural place for Ahsoka to pop up as Fulcrum. It's not explicit, but I took her reaction to Ezra mentioning Yoda as almost total shock, as if (as one might expect) that she had no knowledge they he or Kenobi were still out there somewhere.

    I'm surprised that people seem to want that. I mean, we know that there are more unfinished episodes beyond the ones included in this season, like "Crystal Crisis on Utapau." I would've thought that fans would be hoping that this season would be successful enough to prompt Disney/Lucasfilm to complete the remaining episodes as well.

    ^He said "expecting", not "want". For a chronic hairsplitter you don't half like to twist people's words.

    The reality is that it's a minor miracle they were able to pull together enough key people and convince Disney to get this done at all. The point of the exercise clearly isn't to reboot the show but to give it the closure it was denied. Any new 'Clone Wars' show would absolutely require the direct oversight of Filloni and his time is increasingly valuable these days. I can imagine that between this, 'Resistance', 'The Mandalorian' and whatever else LF animation is working on next he's probably already up to his eyeballs. Adding a full season or three of TCW on top of all that just isn't a reasonable proposition. Aside from that, he's a storyteller and it's best to keep looking forward to new stories, not forever looking back at old unfinished ones.

    So yeah, of course we'd all like to have much more Clone Wars, but that was never on the cards and I'd much rather a coherent conclusion than nothing at all, which is currently the only alternative.

    Aren't there flashbacks to The Battle of Mandalore in the Ahsoka book? I own but haven't read the e-book version, but I thought I saw some flipping through it.
    If so, I wonder if we'll see those scenes in the arc covering it, or if they'll just skip around them?

    There are a few brief flashbacks that don't go into a lot of detail, IIRC. And I gather they were based on the unfilmed Clone Wars scripts anyway, so they're probably pretty consistent with what we'll see in the show.

    And if they have to change anything, they'll change it. No matter how much they claim to want to keep a perfectly consistent canon, there is no way in hell that they will compromise a screen production to tiptoe around a book. The screen productions will always take priority, and when they inevitably decide they need to contradict something from a book or comic, then they'll do the exact same thing the pre-Disney tie-ins did -- just gloss over the decanonized details in the book/comic and go with the new screen version in future works.

    I wasn't talking about consistency, I was talking seeing the actual scenes or not.

    I mean we almost certainly will, because the scenes in the book are based on the episode script to begin with, so they'd have no reason to leave them out of the episodes.

    I didn't realize they were actually based on the scripts, I thought they were just made up entirely for the book.
    Just watched IGN's interview with Dave Filoni and there were a couple interesting points. He once again talked about this being the final season of TCW, but he did say it could "launch other exciting things", so it sounds like we could possibly be getting a spin-off.
    When asked about animated characters appearing in live action, he just laughed and talked about how all the characters are pretty much equal to him and a lot of fans, and "we'll just see what the future holds". So once again, sounds like something might be in the works there too.

    I’m halfway through season 2 of The Clone Wars and while I’m enjoying getting to know Ahsoka, when is it going to get interesting?

    Pretty surprising it's a Monday. For that reason, I'm not 100% sure that date is official yet, it may actually be Feb 7th.

    Cool.

    But as we saw with the release of The Mandalorian a few days early when TROS hit theaters, they can release single episodes anytime they want, they wouldn't have to do the whole series on Mondays just to get to May the 4th.
