The Clone Wars Legacy has been expanded

media-news-v41

Since the cancellation of The Clone Wars, we’ve seen unreleased and unfinished stories from the series slowly making their way out to the public in various forms. There’s the completed episodes Netflix “Lost Missions,” the continuation of Darth Maul’s story in Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir from Dark Horse Comics, and the upcoming Ventress/Vos novel by Christie Golden, which we now know will be titled Dark Disciple.

Today, StarWars.com revealed and released another story from The Clone Wars with the launch of The Clone Wars Legacy. This new page on the official site is dedicated to the stories from the series that we are likely never to see in finished episodes. The highlight is four “story reels” of an Utapau focused arc of The Clone Wars staring Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi titled “Crystal Crisis on Utapau.” The story reels are animatics (early, unfinished animation, like a storyboard in motion) complete with finished voice work. (Note: at time of publish, the third story reel is missing and the fourth is double posted where the third should be. UPDATE: The third story reel is now active: http://www.starwars.com/video/star-wars-the-clone-wars-story-reel-crystal-crisis)

Along with these story reels, you can take a look at concept art for the episodes that make up Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir, Crystal Crisis on Utapau,” and Dark Disciple (Ventress in a ballgown!).

It’s exciting that Disney and Lucasfilm still see the value in these stories, and in getting them to fans. There are still many other arcs from The Clone Wars that we haven’t seen in any form, including a bounty hunter arc staring Boba Fett, and anything continuing Ahsoka Tano’s story. With luck, The Clone Wars Legacy page will be updated frequently as more of these unfinished episodes’ stories are revealed, whatever form they may be in.
