Seriously delayed due to real life reasons (I moved to a new apartment last week and I still need to unbox and pose 300 figures…) there is finally time to take a closer look at the series finale of The Clone Wars. The 12th and final episode of season 7, “Victory And Death”, provides lots of action and some poignant character moments. It’s everything a fan of the show could ever have hoped for and maybe even more. So let’s discuss the season and series finale of The Clone Wars!

Today is not just the day for toy reveals, it’s also time for Order 66. You all know what that means. As season 7 of The Clone Wars draws to a close things seem to turn out very well for the Republic. Dooku is dead, Grievous has been cornered by Obi-Wan, Maul has been captured and the war could very soon be over! And now Ahsoka will accompany Rex to Coruscant as Maul is delivered to the capital to face justice. So what could possibly go wrong with Ahsoka on board a Republic Star Destroyer filled to the brim with clones? Today we talk about “Shattered”, the episode that tells us what happened to Ahsoka when Order 66 was issued. Let the grief counceling begin in the spoiler review of the penultimate The Clone Wars episode “Shattered”, which is yet another masterpiece. Read it by clicking here or on the banner below!
Most fans will have seen the latest episode of The Clone Wars by now. The perfect time to talk about “The Phantom Apprentice”. In many ways the current arc is a compendium piece to “Revenge of the Sith”, with events in the series unfolding concurrently. And in the latest episode Ahsoka learns the truth. About everything. So what does she do? Click through for the spoiler discussion of “The Phantom Apprentice” by clicking here or on the banner below!
The Clone Wars enters its final stages. The Siege of Mandalore begins! While Anakin and Obi-Wan must rush to Coruscant to ward off an attack by the Separatists under command of General Grievous, Ahsoka and Rex make their way to Mandalore in an attempt to capture the renegade Sith Lord Darth Maul.

“Together Again” concludes the Ahsoka arc. Yet again in a Pyke prison Ahsoka comes up with a plan to save the Martez sisters, but then the Martez sisters come up with a plan of their own to save Ahsoka in return. What could ever go wrong? Meanwhile Ahsoka finds out that the Pykes are not at the top of the food chain, they are scared of someone!

This weeks’s episode of The Clone Wars finds the three heroes in a Pyke prison. Of course the Martez sisters and Ahsoka try to escape. Will they succeed? Click here or on the banner below to read the spoiler filled review of “Dangerous Debt”!
This week’s episode “Deal No Deal” is a considerable improvement over the somewhat slow previous episode. Now that we know who the Martez sisters are the adventure can actually begin. And it takes us to Kessel of all places… Read my spoiler review by clicking here or on the banner below!
In this week’s episode of The Clone Wars we get our first new episode not based on a previously released animatic. We meet Ahsoka again who is on her own now after leaving the Jedi Order. And because of an accident she finds herself on Level 1313 of Coruscant, where she meets the Martez sisters. Trace operates the garage Ahsoka more or less crash landed onto, whereas Rafa has some shady business going on that Ahsoka gets drawn into.

I finally catch up with season 7 of The Clone Wars. Today I talk about the latest episode from Friday. And it turns out it’s somewhat controversial. Not because of what happens in the episode, but because of what was cut from the episode. It turns out the episode has an extremely short runtime of just 18 minutes. An entire scene, running for almost 3 minutes, was removed from the old animatic, in it Wat Tambor tests a new kind of droid on a native and has him killed. What makes matters even more odd is that Lucasfilm has now begun to either delete or copyright claim the old animatics. Most copies of the videos on YouTube are gone, they were also removed (the Utapau arc and the Bad Batch arc) from Starwars.com. Why? No one really knows. They had been online for years, without any issues. Some believe Lucasfilm wants to prevent fans from comparing the old animatics to the finalized versions. But is that really so? All of that somewhat overshadows episode 3, which is unfortunate. Read my review to learn more about episode 3 and the discussion surrounding it!
Before the third episode of the The Clone Wars season 7 airs on Friday I review last week’s episode “A Distant Echo”. It’s part two of the four part “Bad Batch” arc and it is based on old material. Rough animatics with full dialogue were released to the public in 2015. But like the previous episode “A Distant Echo” underwent a few changes. It has a completely new scene, another scene was removed instead and it turns out some people think it’s somewhat controversial. So what is it all about? Read my spoiler review for “A Distant Echo” that continues Rex’ search for Echo, who was believed dead, but turned out to be probably alive in the previous episode!
The Clone Wars are back! One week late I will begin to review all the new episodes here on JTA. Today I will talk about the first episode of season 7, on Tuesday or so I will talk about the second episode of season 7 and from then on I will review each new episode over the weekend.
In “The Bad Batch”, the Separatists give the Republic a hard time on the planet of Anaxes as they capture very important shipyards. Captain Rex cannot really explain why and how the Droid Army can so easily adapt to all of his plans. Thus he wants to gather some intel behind enemy lines. But he won’t do it alone, in addition to some regular clones and Captain Cody the “Bad Batch”, a very special team of very special clones, will join them. Click through for the spoiler review of “The Bad Batch”!
We finally have an official date for the return of The Clone Wars on Disney+. It’s February 21st! A new trailer has also dropped on YouTube! Click through to watch it and check out the new poster art for the final season!
