Begun again, the Clone Wars have. Yes, that’s right, maybe the most popular Star Wars TV project ever is back. Well, it is if you have Disney’s new service.
Clone Wars redux
Even if you’re not a fan of the prequels, you have to admit that The Clone Wars was a great show. It basically took the ideas from those three films and expanded upon them, forming a narrative that truly did justice to the Star Wars name.
To see that Disney is bringing the show back for more is a very cool thing indeed. Dave Filoni, who ran the show when it originally aired, will even be back to do so again, and I assume most of the voice talent will as well. Of course, there is that one little catch. You’ll need to subscribe to Disney’s new streaming service if you actually want to watch these new adventures.
Locking this up as an exclusive is a brilliant move. The mouse house pretty much instantly gets a decent sized install base out of it, since I can’t imagine Star Wars not buying in just to watch this. Remember that, since 2013, there’s actually been a fan-based campaign to bring this toon back. And I’m pretty sure those devotees will be signing up to see the continued adventures of Captain Rex and crew.
Continue to stay tuned though, since we don’t really have any details as of yet. Pricing for the service itself, and a release date for The Clone Wars, are still mysteries.
