What’s next for ‘Clone Wars’ series
Australia’s most popular science fiction and fantasy series is getting another chapter to tell.
On Monday, Fox announced that it was adapting the third installment in the Clone Wars series for the streaming service, with the show set to debut in 2019.
In the wake of a new batch of Star Wars films, Fox’s Star Wars Rebels has been the subject of a lot of controversy, with fans accusing the show of being too “troubled” by the events of A New Hope.
The show was also criticized for featuring a female protagonist, a decision which led to the cancellation of the series.
Fox’s latest addition to the series is not expected to be anything like the original series, but the studio is already working on the first installment in a new story, called “The Legacy of the Sith,” which will reportedly have more focus on the story of Darth Vader.
“Clone wars” has been on a downward trajectory since its premiere in 2016.
After a limited release in 2017, the series became one of the most-popular streaming shows in the US, reaching its peak in 2018.
Fox plans to return to the franchise with the second instalment in 2019, which will be based on the novelization of George Lucas’ Star Wars: The Force Awakens.
