Lucasfilm is bringing us a seventh and final season of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ and with it set to drop next year, fans have been wanting more details about them! One such aspect which has been confirmed by James Arnold Taylor who voices Obi-Wan Kenobi on the show is the exact length which each episode will run.
The actor gave out the details during a recent Q&A session on Twitter where first a fan asked him the length:
How long are the new episodes of the Clone Wars…like 22mins?
— Gregory Sarafinching (@GNJS8) September 25, 2018
Same as before 22
— James Arnold Taylor (@JATactor) September 25, 2018
While fans were likely hoping for longer runs, including Gregory who followed up the response with “Booooo was hoping for 42 mins,” this length makes sense. Yes, more “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” would have been a good thing but it would be a surprise to see things mixed up for the final season of the series which fans never thought they would even get in the first place. I’m so glad that Disney’s upcoming streaming platform felt that this would be a good draw to bring in subscribers!
While an official synopsis has yet to be revealed, the teaser trailer did share that we’d be seeing a return of Ashley Eckstein as Ahsoka, Matt Lanter as Anakin Skywalker, James Arnold Taylor as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Dee Bradley Baker as Rex, and Katee Sackhoff once more playing Bo-Katan. It isn’t clear if Tom Kane will still narrate the show and return as Yoda or if Matthew Wood is set to reprise his role as General Grievous, but both of these seem likely. With only ten episodes it seems a bit of a stretch to see Ahmed Best to be back as Jar Jar Binks or Sam Witwer as Darth Maul but with Maul’s inclusion in ‘Solo: A Star Wars Story’ the likelihood of his reappearance, even if briefly, seems high.
Were you hoping that the upcoming ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ episodes would be longer or are you happy that they are remaining 22-minutes long? What aspects of the series do you hope are wrapped up in the final season? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
