‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Cancelled

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 3

Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been canceled after five seasons following the merger between Lucasfilm and Disney. Now that Disney owns the rights, the animated series will now to be taken off the air. Something many knew was on the horizon.

“After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’, we feel the time has come to wind down the series,” Lucasfilm shared in a statement posted on their website Monday. “While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we’re continuing production on new ‘Clone Wars’ story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content.”

Lucasfilm’s animation department also put the brakes on the upcoming animated ‘Star Wars’ comedy series ‘Detours’ from Seth Green (Without a Paddle). “Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we’ve decided to postpone the release of ‘Detours’ until a later date.”
