Star Wars: The Clone Wars is an Emmy Award-winning American 3D CGI animated television series created by George Lucas and produced by Lucasfilm Animation with the division Lucasfilm Animation Singapore, Lucasfilm and CGCG Inc. Dave Filoni is the supervising director of the series. Genndy Tartakovsky, director of the first Clone Wars series, was not involved with the production, but character designer Kilian Plunkett referred to the character designs from the 2D series when designing the characters for the 3D series. The series premiered on Cartoon Network on October 3, 2008.[3] The series is rated TV-PG-V on Cartoon Network and Adult Swim.

In March 2013, following the Disney acquisition of the Star Wars franchise, Lucasfilm announced that Star Wars: The Clone Wars would be "winding down". While new "story arcs" were still in development, the series was effectively cancelled; both to focus on the Star Wars sequel trilogy and because The Clone Wars was airing on a network owned by a major Disney competitor (Turner Broadcasting). Several storylines from The Clone Wars were later continued in the subsequent Disney XD animated series Star Wars Rebels.

From August 17, 2013 to September 20, 2014, Star Wars: The Clone Wars aired on Adult Swim's Toonami block, being taken off just before Rebels premiered on Disney XD.

A seventh season was announced on July 19, 2018, at the series' 10-year anniversary panel at San Diego Comic-Con. The new season, which spans 12 episodes, premiered on Disney Plus in February 2020. The season covers the siege of Mandalore, one of the final battles of the Clone Wars.[4]


Star Wars: The Clone Wars follows the Republic’s clone army in their struggle against Count Dooku’s Separatist forces, and features fan-favorite characters like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano, and Darth Maul. The series is set in the Star Wars universe, during the same time period as the previous 2D-animated Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series (the three-year time period between the Star Wars films Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith).


Most of the characters from Star Wars Episodes 1-3 make appearances in the series, but most of the series is centered around the Jedi Knights and Separatist characters such as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Count Dooku, etc. Some new characters were introduced such as Ahsoka Tano, Cad Bane, and many more.
