"The Siege of Mandalore" is an unfinished episode of the animated television series Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Unlike the other episodes that form part of The Clone Wars Legacy, from this episode only exists the script, but it isn't animated. The episode would have been the first one of a planned Ahsoka Tano three-part story arc.[1] This episode would have been the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.[2]

Plot summaryEdit

According to some sources, the episode was supposed to be part of the show's seventh or eight season. The episode 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 Jedis of Darth Maul's return with the remains of the Shadow Collective. However, during the battle, General Grievous causes a suprise attack and kidnaps Chanceller 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.[3]


The episode would have finished the story that began with the unfinished episodes "Ahsoka's Walkabout" and "Return to the Jedi". However, as the episodes wasn't animated, Tano's fate was left unknown until her appearance in the Star Wars Rebels first season finale "Fire Across the Galaxy".

Also, this episode would have revealed how the Chanceller Palpatine was kidnapped before the beginning of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith.

The events occurred in the episode were later mentioned in the Star Wars Rebels TV movie Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal.


Behind the scenesEdit

As already mentioned before, "The Siege of Mandalore" would have been the finale episode of a planned three-part story arc focusing on the adventures of Ahsoka Tano after her exile from the Jedi Temple and The Clone Wars series finale. It would have been preceded by the episodes "Ahsoka's Walkabout" and "Return to the Jedi".

Despite that the episode was conceived as the show's series finale, Dave Filoni had hinted that it also could not have been like this. According to some sources, they were also plans to make episodes that would happen concurrently with Revenge of the Sith, including one that would have revealed the aftermath of Order 66.[4]

Matt Michnovetz, the writer who wrote this episode, later went to work in the Star Wars Rebels TV movie Star Wars Rebels: The Siege of Lothal, whose plot contains some similar elements originally planned for Siege of Mandalore.
