Lucasfilm to End The Clone Wars without a Resolution
When Lucasfilm and Disney announced that they would be wrapping up The Clone Wars animated series at the end of this season, they also announced that they would be providing bonus content after the end of the series. Sources inside Lucasfilm Animation have told TheForce.net that this bonus content would be story arcs from the planned sixth season of the show but wouldn’t be providing the resolution and closure that many fans would have liked.
The Force’s sources say that two story arcs from what would have been season six will be produced and released as “bonus content.” The only reported arc will deal with the fate of bounty hunters Cad Bane and Aurra Sing. Other bounty hunters, such as Boba Fett, wouldn’t be getting their own arcs.
The reports also say that the bonus stories won’t focus on the fates of Clone Wars starring characters Ahsoka Tano and Asajj Ventress. With those two characters only really a focus in The Clone Wars series, it’s amazing that their fates would be left largely unresolved.
This is what we all feared when Disney bought Lucasfilm. It’s clear that these decisions are made based on money rather than for the fans or the Star Wars lore. It’s not like Star Wars wouldn’t print money for Disney even if they let the series continue to run on the Cartoon Network. I don’t want to accuse that Disney is showing contempt for Star Wars fans with moves like these but they’re coming damn close to pissing all Star Wars fans off.
