Season 7 of the series will fill in the plot gaps between the first six seasons of The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, which continued the stories of some of the show's cast of characters. Disney+ released the first trailer for the final season of The Clone Wars in January 2020, and episodes are starting to come out now on the streamer.

Episodes of The Clone Wars, like all of Disney+'s series, are to be released at one minute past midnight PT every Friday. When releasing episodes of their first Star Wars show The Mandalorian, Disney+ had some problems with users reporting that the show did not appear on their accounts for minutes or sometimes hours after the release date, but most of these issues have been smoothed out in the months since.

Who is in the cast of Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7?

Speaking to io9, Clone Wars creator Dave Filoni teased some of the characters who are back in the show. He said: "Looking at Clone Wars, it's pretty clear to me to say that Rex [Dee Bradley Baker] and Ahsoka [Ashley Eckstein] are kind of the backbone of it." He later added: There are characters like Ventress [Nika Futterman] that, in the end, play a significant role and have an arc."

Also returning for the final episodes of The Clone Wars are some familiar faces from the Star Wars movies. Among them are Anakin Skywalker (Matt Lanter), Obi-Wan Kenobi (James Arnold Taylor), Mace Windu (Terrence 'T.C.' Carson), Yoda (Tom Kane) and Darth Maul (Sam Witwer).

What will happen in Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7?

Filoni's interview with io9 also gave some massive plot hints about what fans can expect from the final episodes of Clone Wars. He revealed to the website that the 12 episodes can effectively be split into three sections.

The first will be about the Bad Batch, a group of enhanced Clone Troopers introduced in Season 7, Episode 1, "The Bad Batch."

The second plot will reveal what happened to Ahsoka between the events of Season 6 and her first appearance in Rebels, while the third will tie the animated series into The Mandalorian by showing us exactly what happened at the Siege of Mandalore.

Filoni said of these three plots: "In the stories that we were able to choose, I knew Ahsoka needed to be a significant part of that story and so did Captain Rex. So the arcs really work out to be a portion about Rex, a portion about Ahsoka and a portion that brings them together. And that kind of flows in a nice way."
