'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' To Return: Watch The Trailer

It's San Diego Comic-Con time again, so we can expect some big movie and TV news out of California over the next few days. The biggest story to emerge so far (animation-wise at least) came out of a panel held to commemorate the 10th anniversary of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series. It's been announced that the series will be revived. A trailer was shown and subsequently released online.

When Disney bought Lucasfilm,  they made the decision to end the popular Cartoon Network animated series. The last episode aired in 2014 and fans were left hanging. It was assumed that that was where the story would end. The news that the series would be coming back for 12 new episodes is something of a surprise, to put it mildly.

The series was created by George Lucas and developed by Dave Filoni.  It takes place in the timeline of the prequel trilogy, between the second and third films.  There's a lot of talk about it being an opportunity to finish what they started, so presumably, these 12 episodes will bring the story to some sort of conclusion.

The new season of Clone Wars is one of the first series to be announced as being exclusive to Disney's upcoming, as yet unnamed, streaming service.  No release date has been confirmed but the streaming service is scheduled to launch in 2019 in the United States.

Check out the trailer, below.
