Reunite With The Cast Of Clone Wars
D23 is hosting a reunion of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars cast on Friday May 8 at 7pm EST/4pm PST. Star Wars: The Clone Wars Cast Reunion Challenge will be hosted by D23’s Justin Arthur and will include cast members:
Ashley Eckstein the voice of Ahsoka Tano
Catherine Taber the voice of Padmé Amidala
Dee Bradley Baker the voice of the many Clone Troopers such as fan favorite Captain Rex
James Arnold Taylor the voice of Obi-Wan Kenobi
Matt Lanter the voice of Anakin Skywalker
Sam Witwer the voice of Darth Maul
This reunion will be a chance for the cast to look back at the last seven seasons of the award winning animated Star Wars series. However, this will also include a bit of a challenge for the reunited cast. This reunion event will also “test them in the ways of the force” as the cast will be participating in a bit of Clone Wars Trivia.
Fans knew from the beginning that the series would have a tragic ending for Anakin, Obi-Wan, Padmé, and nearly all of the other characters introduced, but it was definitely worth the journey. The series was set after the animated film The Clone Wars and ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network before it was cancelled. However, a new sixth season premiered on Netflix along with the first five seasons. Disney+ brought the beloved series back for a seventh and final season allowing it to end as was intended with the final episodes lining up with Revenge of The Sith.
The seventh and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars premiered on Disney+ February 21 and now you can watch the entire series on the Disney streaming platform. The seventh season saw the return of fan favorite Ahsoka Tano and revealed a bit of what she had been up to after leaving in the fifth season finale. The season lead to the inevitable events of the third Star Wars film Revenge of the Sith and even crossed over into the timeline and events of the film.
The final four episodes followed Ahsoka on the Siege of Mandalore arc and happened simultaneously with the events of the movie. There were scenes in the final four episodes that directly connected back to the events of the film and even tied directly into scenes from Revenge of the Sith.
While Anakin, Obi-Wan, Padmé, and the Jedi were busy at Coruscant, Ahsoka was busy helping liberate Mandalore form Darth Maul. In the penultimate episode, the devastating Order 66 occurs and the Clones turn on Ahsoka as they do all of the other Jedi. Although the outcome of certain parts of the finale are clear if you’ve seen Star Wars: Rebels or Star Wars Episodes IV-VI it is still a hugely impactful episode with beautifully cinematic shots and gut punching emotional moments. There is even an appearance from the infamous Star Wars villain Darth Vader.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars Cast Reunion Challenge will be on Friday May 8 at 7pm EST/4pm PST. You can watch the Cast Reunion on D23.com, Facebook.com/DisneyD23, or YouTube.com/DisneyD23.
