Clone Wars Disney+ title image

The ‘Clone Wars’ saga is finally drawing to a close. The animated journey that started as a series of micro episodes in 2003 and a full-fledged show in 2008 has been a great ride. Throughout the ups, downs, and stalls, ‘Clone Wars’ brought to us great new additions to the ‘Star Wars’ canon. We got fan-favorite Ahsoka Tano and a more fleshed-out version of Anakin Skywalker compared to the prequel films.

On February 21st, after a five-year hiatus since the last season, Disney+ is ready to bring us the closing chapter of the war that set in motion the rise of the Emperor and the fall of Anakin Skywalker. Are newcomers going to need a bit of a history lesson if they’re going to enjoy this swan song? Yes, according to Disney.
