Star Wars: The Clone Wars is often overlooked as a children’s show due to its animated format and original premier on Cartoon Network in the late 2000’s. This is not the case, as the series contains the intricate character arcs, real-stake conflict, and exciting action that the movies they are attached to delivered.

The show’s six established seasons cover events that take place after Attack of the Clones (22 BBY), but before Revenge of the Sith (19 BBY). This three-year war between the Galactic Republic and Separatist Alliance is only briefly covered in the films, but adventures and conflicts in the show have brought much-needed admiration to the prequel trilogy.

Unfortunately, in the acquisition of Lucasfilm, Disney cancelled Clone Wars prematurely. The final season was intended to end in conjunction with the events of Revenge of the Sith. Despite the loss, many fans held onto the hope that one day their beloved show would return. #SaveCloneWars movements arose on social media in the hope that Lucasfilm would hear their cries, and one day they did. The final seventh season arrives February 21 on Disney+. Here is what you should watch before that beautiful day arrives. All movies and episodes listen below are available on Disney+.
