After being cancelled when Disney aquired Lucsfilm in 2012, Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns today for the seventh and final season on Disney+. The first episode, “Squad 99”, kicks off aa storyline about an elite squad of Clone Troopers on a mission behind enemy lines.
Across 12 new episodes – that were planned to be part of the original series’ run – storylines will be continued as the events get closer than ever before to Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. A new installment will air each week.
There are no sets based on The Clone Wars in the recently released January wave of LEGO Star Wars products, but given the LEGO Group’s many previous releases based on the series, there may well be some on the way later this year if recent rumours turn out to be accurate.
In the UK, the episodes will be presumably available when Disney+ launches on March 24.
