Presented by: Shana O'Neil
It took five years and we had the entire run of Star Wars Rebels in the meantime, but the fans dream of seeing Star Wars: The Clone Wars return has finally been realized.

The original series, which ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network was abruptly canceled mid-season 6 when Disney bought Lucasfilm, leaving fans wondering what happened next in the story and what Dave Filoni had planned. Over the years, some of those episodes have been posted in various states of completion, but no one ever learned how it all ended.
The new season will reportedly consist of 12 episodes and be released on Disney's upcoming streaming service.
Thanks to Dave Filoni, we're about to find out what happened next and Star Wars fans are losing their ever-loving minds.

Co-worker: "Are you crying??"
Me: "Clearly!" as the trailer blasts on my laptop.

My wife and I just screamed at each other over the phone for five minutes and then we cried, of course, because it's Ahsoka. I know I'm a big baby. I don't care. #CloneWarsSaved

And this one, I have to include this one. Because Heath Williams and his Zuvio obsession cannot be denied.
