Our friend Jason at Making Star Wars spotted a number of tweets
by The Clone Wars
writer Brent Friedman that shed new light on the Season 7 and 8 episodes and story arcs that never saw the light of day. Here are the new revelations from Friedman:
- Seasons 7 and 8 were fully written.
- There would have been a bounty hunter arc with Cad Bane and Boba Fett. TFN first reported on this arc last March.
- Yoda would have been featured "in a cool way" in another story arc beyond the one in the bonus content.
- Friedman wrote a story arc involving ARC trooper Echo, who would have survived his apparent death on Lola Sayu in the episode "Counterattack." The first episode was called "The Bad Batch" and the second was called "A Distant Echo."
- In Friedman's clone trooper story arc, Rex would have been in charge of a unit called "The Batch." The arc took place on the planets Anaxes and Skako Minor.
- Anakin's response to Ahsoka's departure from the Jedi Order would have been explored in a later arc.
