The adventures of Ahsoka Tano will continue when Star Wars: Clone Wars Season 7 makes its debut on the Disney Plus streaming service, and we learn more about them.
Executive producer Dave Filoni and guest-surprises raise the curtain of the show presented in honor of a panel of Star Wars Celebration Chicago. You can watch the panel now integrated here from the Star Wars YouTube channel.
The show is centered on Jedi learner Ahsoka, her master Anakin Skywalker and her master Obi-Wan Kenobi who fight in the galactic conflict between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith.
We recap the event live here:
Filoni notes how technically difficult the series was, but things are better this season.
Actress Ahsoka Ashley Eckstein learned of the return of the series while she was in line waiting for a ride to Walt Disney World, noticing that she had had a stealthy conversation with Dee Bradley Baker as a result of the news.
"Do not tell anyone, promised Jedi," she said.
Sam Witwer, who speaks Maul, continued to push Filoni to get details about Mandalore's siege, but Filoni's wife warned her when she said "Dave, can I tell him?"
Eckstein has since played Ahsoka in Star Wars Rebels, which takes place many years after the series The Clone Wars.
"It took me a while to get back to Ahsoka Clone Wars," Eckstein said.
And thanks to the collection of 12 episodes, Filoni was able to finish concepts that were only partially completed but that were announced to the fans when the show was canceled.
"We reorganized the show a little bit," Filoni said. He noted that some of the facial features have been changed now that animation technology has improved since the last edition of the series.
The Bad Batch, a group of genetically improved clones, have already been seen in unfinished stories. The crowd was treated to a Bad Batch clip that brought out a huge team of droids in action.
Ahsoka's life at 1313 level of the dark underworld of Coruscant was evoked, where she meets the twins Trace and Rafa.
Switching from wise Rebels Ahsoka to his teenage daughter Ahsoka was a "challenge", according to Filoni.
Ahsoka will learn new people with whom she surrounds.
"There is a lot of character development in these episodes," said Eckstein, while Ahsoka was interacting with his peers.
A second clip of the new season shows the bumpy descent of Ahsoka into the underworld of Coruscant.
The Mandalore headquarters is "something accomplished that I have never had to do," noted Filoni.
