"Even though those Clone Wars episodes did not get publicly revealed, we still look at their core stories as having happened."
―Pablo Hidalgo[src]

The Clone Wars Legacy is a canon multimedia project that continues the story of the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The Clone Wars Legacy includes the comic mini-series Star Wars: Darth Maul—Son of Dathomir, eight TV story reels, and the novel Dark Disciple, all of which would have been released as episodes of the series had it not been canceled.

DevelopmentEdit

Although it had not yet been branded as The Clone Wars Legacy, the first story of the series was announced on January 7, 2014 as the comic mini-series Star Wars: Darth Maul—Son of Dathomir.[2] The second story, the novel Dark Disciple, was announced at San Diego Comic-Con on July 25, 2014.[3] StarWars.com officially revealed the brand name The Clone Wars Legacy on September 25, 2014, at which time the four-episode "Crystal Crisis on Utapau" arc was released online in the form of animated story reels.[4]

On April 9, 2015, StarWars.com announced that another unfinished, four-episode story arc, "Bad Batch," would be screened in story-reel form at Celebration Anaheim.[5] The arc's writer, Brent Friedman, previously released a good amount of information on the episodes via his Twitter account.[6][7]

MediaEdit

Unfinished episodesEdit

In March 2016, Lucasfilm Story Group's Pablo Hidalgo stated that there were 13 story arcs left after the release of the sixth season.[18] First-draft scripts had been written for seasons 7 and 8 prior to the series' cancellation.[19] Brent Friedman confirmed via Twitter that each arc was four episodes long.[20] Hidalgo also confirmed that production season 5 had 25 episodes while production seasons 6 and 7 had 24 episodes each.[8] Although scripts for these stories exist, they're not canon unless an official release is made, even if other media refers to these events.[source?]

Bounty Hunter ArcEdit

"The next arc that involved the bounty hunters was really finally bringing the two big bounty hunters, Boba Fett and Cad Bane, together."
Dave Filoni[src]

This four-episode arc was written by Matt Michnovetz, and had production codes 5.21–5.25[21] In this arc Boba Fett and Cad Bane were going to team up for a "rescue mission" on Tatooine where Tusken Raiders had kidnapped a child. It would emphasize Boba's and Cad's relation to one another as Cad had known Jango. The story would be heavily influenced by the film The Searchers, which George Lucas likes. Aurra Sing, Seripas, C-21 Highsinger, Embo, Latts Razzi and Bossk were also going to be in the story according to concept art. Cad Bane got new clothes and has a new ship called the Justifier. A Tusken Shaman would have appeared.[22]

Ahsoka's WalkaboutEdit

A four-episode arc with production codes 6.05–6.08[23] was to follow Ahsoka Tano after her decision to leave the Jedi Order. This arc was to show some of her first adventures in the underworld where she met a scoundrel named Nyx Okami, who she developed a close relationship with.[24] Ahsoka's character was challenged when she got involved with the underworld and the Pyke Syndicate but had to resist her Jedi teachings for her own safety.[24]

KashyyykEdit

A four-episode arc written by Matt Michnovetz[25] with production codes 6.17–6.20 starred Yoda and the Bad Batch on Kashyyyk.[26] At the "Untold Clone Wars" panel at Celebration Anaheim, Dave Filoni talked about the plot of the arc. He revealed the the characters would ride on giant ape lizards that were holy to the Wookiees. In one scene, Tarfful would ask the tree spirits for permission to go into battle against the enemy, which was a Trandoshan and the Separatist Alliance. To get the enemy out of some of their cities, they would have to burn some of the trees. The clones had no problem with it, but it was upsetting to the Wookiees. A part of the arc would be about the clones and the Wookiees finding a common ground to fight the Separatists. Some of Yoda's troopers would have his head silhouette on their helmets, and Echo would now be part of the Bad Batch squad. A story-reel clip was shown at the panel, which showed the Bad Batch and other Wookiees battling a new beast that was based on Kinraths from the Star Wars: Knights of the Old Republic game.[22] Only parts of the four episodes of the arc were made into animatics before the series' cancellation.[27] Dave Filoni revealed at Celebration Europe II that Yoda would be in the arc to give credit to the line "Good relations with the Wookiees I have" from Revenge of the Sith.[28] Matt Michnovetz revealed that Chewbacca would have played a huge role,[29] and that the arc would have contained some references to The Star Wars Holiday Special.[30]

Rex and R2 Top GunEdit

Brent Friedman wrote the script for a four-episode arc starring Rex and R2. This story showed the ground forces of the Clone Army getting into an argument with the pilots, and their astomechs, including R2-D2. This arc featured Rex and R2, where Rex flew a starfighter with R2 as his copilot. They would crash and be stranded together on one of the moons of Ryloth,[22] where most of the episodes would take place.[31] Rex and R2 reprogrammed a B2 super battle droid that they would grow attached to,[32] and at some point Rex was injured.[33] Friedman commented that the arc started out light and fun but then went to "some very unexpected and dark places."[34]

Yuuzhan VongEdit

This story would have involved the Yuuzhan Vong in a very minimal way. A scout ship was trying to assess the strength of the Republic and what Jedi were. Pablo Hidalgo commented that it was a creepy story and would have been like an X-files episode with an alien-abduction event.[22] To better align with George Lucas' description of the Force, the Vong did not have any Force immunity in this story.[35] Pablo said the story never got into the origins of the Vong, but that they probably were from another galaxy.[36]

Return to the JediEdit

This story would be about what lay beneath the Jedi Temple, similar to how churches were often built on the previous religious center. Different Force-user temples, and maybe even a Sith shrine, would be beneath. There would be giant skeleton Kaiju down there. Ahsoka discovers a threat in the underworld of Coruscant and makes her way back to the Jedi order to warn them. She, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker sets out to rescue Master Yoda from the Sith shrine. The arc would also have featured Darth Sidious trying to break into the Holocron Vault of the Jedi Temple, but Ahsoka would hinder his progress.[24]

Return to Mon CalaEdit

This story had productions codes 7.17–7.20 and would have starred Padmé Amidala working against Chancellor Palpatine's prolonged stay in office. In episode 7.19 Padmé and Anakin Skywalker returned to Mon Cala to meet with Prince Lee-Char once again. While there, they found out that the leader of the Quarren, Nossor Ri, had been murdered, and Tikkes had been appointed provisional leader in his place. Padmé hoped to gain support from the Quarren to remove Palpatine from office. The Quarren Senator Tundra Dowmeia explained to Padmé that their government was gridlocked and unable to function. They would meet with Tikkes, who expressed frustrations with Palpatine.[37]

The Siege of MandaloreEdit

This arc had production codes 7.21–7.24 and was to be the final arc of the series. It would have shown Ahsoka Tano teaming up with Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to respond to a call of Bo-Katan Kryze alerting the Jedi of Darth Maul's return with the remains of the Shadow Collective. However, during the battle, General Grievous causes a surprise attack and kidnaps Supreme Chancellor Palpatine, so that while Anakin and Obi-Wan go to rescue Palpatine, Ahsoka and the Captain Rex remain in command of the clones, who paint their armor with Tano's facial markings.[24] Part of this arc was adapted into the prologue of the novel Ahsoka by E. K. Johnston, and it was first mentioned in the Star Wars Rebels episode "Relics of the Old Republic."
