Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been discussed a lot lately about the future of it. If you follow it at all, you’ll probably know that the last episode of season 5 aired on Cartoon Network about a week and a half ago. Cartoon Network has shown its schedule for the next quarter of the year, and Clone Wars is not on it at all. Rebel Force Radio has begged us to send in letters to Bob Iger asking him to keep the Clone Wars alive. Stephen Stanton also said in one of Rebel Force Radio’s podcasts that they were in production of The Clone Wars Season 6.
The letters and the emails and every attempt to keep the Clone Wars alive has obviously not worked, because earlier today there was a new article in the Starwars.com New section. You can read it here. The article confirmed the ending of the TV show on Cartoon Network. Dave Filoni, the director of the Clone Wars, said this in the video:
But, because of these new exciting changes and things happening, other things have to wind down and come to a close, and that’s what we’re going to do with Star Wars: The Clone Wars. And I know a lot of you have written letters, and emailed, and loved this show. To persist, I loved making this show. The crew is so dedicated to making the show.
The webpage said several times, though, that they have yet to post finished but unaired episodes, something like never before. But it will not be on Cartoon Network, or Cable TV at all. Where it will be shown we do not know. But still be sending those letters to Bob Iger and maybe even George Lucas himself, because even though they are not continuing production for it, Star Wars the Clone Wars needs a home.
James Arnold Taylor (Voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi in Star Wars the Clone Wars) writes about his thoughts on the matter here.
