Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 Trailer Shows the Return of a Jedi

A new trailer for Disney+'s upcoming Star Wars: The Clone Wars revival debuted at Star Wars Celebration in Chicago today.

While the first trailer for the next 12-episode season of the fan-favorite show was light on any actual action, this trailer, which focuses on the Jedi trainee Ahsoka Tano, more than makes up for it.

In between scenes from the front lines of the ongoing Clone Wars, Ahsoka reunites with her mentor Anakin Skywalker and takes command of a battalion of Clone Troopers who've painted their helmets to resemble her orange-and-blue appearance. A clip released earlier during the panel revealed a longer version of this scene, and another clip shows the young Jedi fighting her way through Coruscant's seedy Level 1313.

The trailer also offers a first look at the experimental Clone Force 99, or "the Bad Batch." This odd ragtag group of Troopers was first teased in information about The Clone Wars episodes that were in some stage of development when the show initially ended. While the Bad Batch only appeared for a few moments in the trailer, a clip that aired earlier in the panel offered a slightly longer look at the troopers.

In addition to the apparent deaths of several prominent Clone Troopers, the trailer also teases the rise of the Mandalorians and the long-awaited return of Darth Maul. The final moments of the trailer offer a brief glimpse of a lightsaber duel between the Sith Lord and Ahsoka.

As the panel at Celebration revealed, Darth Maul will also have a rematch with Obi-Wan Kenobi, where Ray Park will reprise his Star Wars: The Phantom Menace role through motion-capture for their long-awaited fight.

After starting in 2008, Star Wars: The Clone Wars ran for five seasons on Cartoon Network before coming to an end in 2013. A few of the show's in-production episodes were completed and released on   Netflix in 2014, and the show's upcoming revival will air alongside The Mandalorian and an untitled Cassian Andor series on Disney+.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 does not currently have a release date. Disney+ launches Nov. 12. The monthly subscription will cost $6.99 with a yearly price of $69.99.
