Star Wars: The Clone Wars may be over, but several of the beloved animated series' cast members are returning to lend their voices to the audiobook edition of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars – Stories of Light and Dark anthology.

This book seems like an excellent way for fans to revisit The Clone Wars from a new angle since producer Dave Filoni doesn't expect to return to the era with any new stories. "I don't know. Personally for me, probably not," Filoni said. "I have a lot of things I'm excited that we're doing looking forward. I think it's hard because I so appreciate the fan support, and I appreciate just how excited everybody was that we were back. I understand them wanting more and more episodes. The people that worked on it — myself and the team, basically all the leads — they were on the original run, and I think it shows. We're really thankful we got to finish it. But I also think creatively, you always want to move forward."
Star Wars: The Clone Wars - Stories of Light and Dark goes on sale on August 25th.
