The Official Star Wars Blog is celebrating the release of The Clone Wars Season 5 on Blu-ray and DVD by publishing an interview with Dave Filoni, the series' supervising director. In the third and final part of their conversation, Filoni discusses The Clone Wars bonus content, the animated series' legacy, and more in the third part of this StarWars.com blog interview.
Here's an excerpt from the interview where Filoni discusses the long-awaited bonus content:
The finished episodes were the ones that were already pretty far down the track in terms of production. They were very near completion.Click here to read the last part of this interview with Filoni.
When you look at level of importance to wrap things up for fans, I think that two story arcs that fans will get to see are really, really important for the overall Clone Wars story. So Iím very glad that fans will get to see them in their completed form.
Itís not like all of the bonus material that comes out was planned on really answering things for fans. Itís more, ďThis is where we were headed,Ē and the Yoda story arc [announced on Twitter] definitely gives a sense of closure. One of the story arcs, which is very short, is not essential to the overall story but it is a nice final showcase for one of the prequel characters.
The stories coming out definitely will cause a lot of debate and discussion among fans, which is what good Star Wars stories always do, and I look forward to talking about the stories with them when the time is right.
And when George and I get together, when I go have lunch with him, he and I still talk about [The Clone Wars]. We talk about things, and itís just good to discuss because you never know with Star Wars. I never thought in my lifetime there would be a [Star Wars: Episode] VII, VIII, and IX, and here they come. So itís just good to keep talking about these things and figure out as much about them as possible, because who knows. I could be a very old man and some kid that was raised on Clone Wars will want to continue the story, so I better know that story when they come for it.
