Star Wars: The Clone Wars Isn’t Dead Yet! by Michelle Lawhorn
USA Today acquired a brand new clip of the recently-cancelled animated series, and it promises to be an amazing story arc involving Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas, Jedi Master Plo Koon, and the origin of the clone army. Several arcs were planned out and produced before the surprising cancellation, so there is still hope that at least some characters and storylines will be given closure (many fans are hoping for that closure to go to Ahsoka after she voluntarily walked away from the Jedi Order at the end of season 5). No word has yet been given how the final arcs will be released, either on television, on demand, or direct-to-DVD.
Although the future of the TV series is uncertain at this juncture with Lucasfilm being bought by Disney last October, the Star Wars franchise is far from finished. 2015 will see the release of the first feature-length film in ten years (Revenge of the Sith came out in 2005), followed each year by at least five other films.
