For a while, it looked like Star Wars: The Clone Wars was going to end abruptly on a cliffhanger with Season 5. After Disney bought LucasFilm, they decided to cancel the popular Cartoon Network series, even though work on Season 6 had already begun.
Today, Star Wars: The Clone Wars Supervising Director Dave Filoni announced via Facebook that fans will get to see the full 22 episode Season 6 in early 2014, with an episode that includes Master Yoda's most dangerous mission. It was not revealed where these episodes will air, if they will debut on Disney XD, or if they will only be made available on a streaming platform.
"Star Wars fans - I have some exciting news! We have wrapped production on all of the remaining Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes, and while that might be sad news in one way, it's good news in another. It means you will finally get to see them. When, exactly, is a detail I cannot yet share. I can confirm that in early 2014 you will be watching the final episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, including one of Master Yoda's most challenging missions. So, get ready. We've got Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels coming at you in 2014. Animated Star Wars is alive and well. Trust in the Force my friends.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars was canceled to make way for other LucasFilm animated series under the Disney house banner, the first being Star Wars Rebels in 2014, which will debut on the Disney Channel with a one hour special before moving to Disney XD for its first season half hour run. LEGO Yoda is also another series that is in the development stages.
