"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]

Behind the scenesEdit

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.[15] First draft scripts had been written for seasons 7 and 8 prior to the series' cancellation.[16]Brent Friedman confirmed via twitter that each arc were four episodes long.[17] Hidalgo also confirmed that production season 5 had 25 episodes while production season 6 and 7 had 24 episodes each. [18] Although scripts for these stories exists they're not officially canon, until an official release is made, even if other media makes reference to these events,

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 Michonvetz, and had production codes 5.21-5.25[19] 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 movie "The Searchers", which is a film George 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 appear.[20]

Ahsoka's WalkaboutEdit

A four episode arc with production codes 6.05-6.08[21] 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 smuggler named Nyx Okami, who she developed a close relationship with.[22] 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.[22]

Return to the JediEdit

Was an episode arc that would have shown Ahsoka Tano, after being recruited by the Jedi Order, helping Obi-Wan Kenobi and Anakin Skywalker to rescue Master Yoda from the Sith shrine, which was found under the Jedi Temple.[22]

The Siege of MandaloreEdit

This arc 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.[22] 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.
