Given that the comic series is considered part of the Disney Canon thanks to its origins as a Clone Wars script, it’s unlikely this story will be retold in Clone Wars’ upcoming return. 1) – The first volumes of Marvel’s newly relaunched Star Wars and Darth Vader comics reveal the story of how Vader first discovered the identity of the young rebel who blew up the Death Star — and Boba Fett plays a pivotal role in these events. On an alien world, they undertake a dangerous but profitable mission that tests the limits of their skills, and the strength of Asajj's character." Beyond the actual battle for Mandalore the story would’ve gone deeper into the background of what was happening to Rex and Ahsoka during the events of Revenge of the Sith—specifically, how the two ended up surviving Order 66. 2) Maul escapes. Jedi Quinlan Vos is given the controversial mission, which forces him to delve into the underworld of Coruscant with an unlikely partner in the form of Ventress, now on her own and operating as a bounty hunter. 4.

And it features Cad Bane, which makes it even better. Johntson’s Ahsoka novel (Rex had his inhibitor chip disabled after the events of The Lost Mission’s haunting brush with the command, so Order 66 did not affect him—and after escaping the clones the duo faked their deaths and went their separate ways), but whether or not we’ll see them realized in this upcoming season remains to be seen. 6) Rebels.

After Ventress sacrifices herself to save Vos in a final duel with Dooku on Christophsis, Vos returns to the light in remembrance of the fallen former Force user. I get that Maul is a really cool character who has been used very effectively in the series, but his whole timeline and motivations make very little sense. It had to have been a shot at the torso/head. Although Clone Wars executive director Dave Filoni said his explorations of the storyline never got far, given that the current Star Wars canon seems to be pointing to a potentially similar force existing in the galaxy far, far away—the mysterious Unknown Regions, home to something sinister and dangerous that everyone from Snoke to Palpatine to Grand Admiral Thrawn was meant to be wary of—it’s crazy to imagine that being recontextualized in a world where Clone Wars had gotten to introduce the Vong back in 2014. However, during the battle, Anakin and Obi-Wan would be called away due to an emergency—specifically, the events of the opening of Revenge of the Sith, with Grievous launching a surprise attack on Coruscant and abducting Chancellor Palpatine, cutting their reunion with Ahsoka short. In The Clone Wars, Obi-Wan learns Jango Fett wasn't really a Mandalorian. The entire story would’ve included Boba finally donning his infamous suit of Mandalorian armor, but we know the fight would’ve also solved another of those Star Wars mysteries that never needed an answer: a shot from Bane would’ve deflected off Boba’s helmet, giving it the dent it has in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi.
