Liam Neeson returns to ‘Star Wars’ in this trailer for the final season of ‘The Clone Wars’ | The Verge
In the wake of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm, many current Star Wars projects were cancelled, including the animated series The Clone Wars. The 13 final episodes will be debuting on Netflix instead, and in this new trailer we get a sense of what’s in store. In the final season — dubbed “The Lost Missions” — actor Liam Neeson returns to the franchise to reprise his role as the slain Jedi Qui-Gon Jinn, where he directs Yoda to visit Dagobah, the same swampy planet that Luke Skywalker visits in The Empire Strikes Back. In case you’re not familiar with The Clone Wars, the animated series takes place in between the second and third Star Wars prequels, allowing it to feature characters like Anakin Skywalker and Mace Windu. Overseen by Dave Filoni, the show originally aired on the Cartoon Network and spawned several video game spinoffs before production was brought to a halt. Filoni has now moved on to another animated show, Star Wars Rebels, which will chronicle the era between the prequels and the classic trilogy. The final season of The Clone Wars, along with every other episode of the series, will be available on Netflix on March 7th.
