The Correct Viewing Order For Star Wars: The Clone Wars

By

Based on what we’re hearing from Disney, the seventh and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, now on Disney Plus, will be with us on February 17th, 2020. One of the more challenging aspects of the animated series, though, is that you won’t get a chronological experience by just following the released episode order. Thankfully, then, we now have a correct viewing order courtesy of the official Star Wars site, which tells us all you need to know to catch up on The Clone Wars before its return.

The Clone Wars bridges the gap between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, providing a significant level of detail for anyone wondering what was going on in between the two prequel movies. When aired, episodes could often be bundled together as arcs, linked by one-off episodes that might explore a different part of the galaxy adjacent to the main events of the narrative. This format allowed the show’s producers to flesh out a lot of Star Wars mythology, including the return of characters like Darth Maul (also back for season 7), and plotlines with the Mandalorians.

The sometimes-fractured nature of this storytelling can be avoided by following the below viewing order, which also includes the original feature film and additional content for filling in parts of the narrative:

So, there you have it, a complete rundown of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars continuity, albeit one that might end up being too great a challenge to fit in before the seventh season’s launch. It may not be perfect, as new series like Star Wars Rebels and Star Wars Resistance muddy some of the broader continuity, but it at least gives you the “official” order if you wanted to go down that route. Of course, you could also just choose to watch the show as it originally aired, even if perhaps this ends up being slightly confusing in terms of following an overall narrative. The choice is yours, though.
