Star Wars: The Clone Wars launched in 2008 with a theatrically released film, with the narrative continuing in an animated series on Cartoon Network. With the events of the narrative taking place between Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, many fans knew what the eventual outcome of the story would be, only for creator Dave Filoni to impress audiences with a vast and sprawling series that proved there were still plenty of surprises in store.
With no new films being made, Star Wars fans were satiated with the compelling characters the series introduced, like Ahsoka, Rex, and Cad Bane. Additionally, the return of Darth Maul offered all-new storytelling opportunities for the frightening figure.
As the series' following grew with each season, Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm in 2012 unfortunately resulted in the series coming to a close unexpectedly in 2013. A variety of other stories helped enlighten audiences to beloved characters' fates, yet there were still a number of unknown steps along that journey that resulted in fans campaigning for the completion of the series.
In 2018, Disney announced that fans would be getting a final season of the series, which was due in large part to the fans making their voices heard.
