Star Wars fans know Revenge of the Sith begins with the end of the clone wars . So most people assumed that the television show The Clone Wars would end before, or at least at that very moment. But if there is one thing you should never do in the world of Star Wars producer Dave Filoni, then it is to assume something .
Last month when released a new trailer for the finale season of The Clone Wars one scene stood out particularly like a purple lightsaber. It was Mace Windu who wrote the line, "I sense a conspiracy to destroy the Jedi." This is the same line that he delivers in Revenge of the Sith just before sending Anakin Skywalker to look for Chancellor Palpatine. And we all know how it turns out .
When io9 spoke this week with Dave Filoni, the co-creator of  Clone War about the return of the show, we had to let him clarify the record: The Clone Wars in Revenge of the Sith ?
"Yes, I won't say much about [that]," Filoni started. "I will definitely say that I don't think Mace is a person [who] who repeats himself."
Coming from Filoni, this is about as close as possible to a confirmation. If Mace doesn't repeat, the trailer shows the moment from the film. He went on to discuss the difficulties in lining up the two things.
"I was always, always interested in a transition point with the films when it really mattered in the end," he said. “I was always interested in making the audience aware of where Ahsoka was, where Captain Rex was, at sometimes critical moments that we all know from the films. And yet preserve the integrity of the films. "
" Preserving the Integrity of Movies "means that in this last season of The Clone Wars three main characters may not have exactly one thing to do.
“There were certain decisions to be made here because I was the main character of the film – in Anakin, Obi-Wan and Padmé – [and] I didn't want to do anything in these last episodes that would interrupt or contradict what happened to them in [ Revenge of the Sith ]] ”said Filoni. "So I tried to touch these characters and show them how they relate more to the characters I deal with in Ahsoka and Rex and tell their story in this way, and then you To give an idea of where they may be or may not be during certain events. So we'll see. We'll see if it works. “
Whether it works or not, there seems to be certainty that The Clone Wars events from Revenge of the Sith will show … from a certain point of view. However, we wonder how far it will go. Will we see the animated version of Order 66 kill the Jedi?
We'll find out soon because Star Wars: The Clone Wars is back on Disney +. New episodes are released every week, and you can read our Premiere Summary here .
