Star Wars: The Clone Wars is airing it’s final season on Disney+ right now. I wonder what George Lucas thinks of the final season of The Clone Wars. Well, I need wonder no more.
Sam Witwer who plays Darth Maul on The Clone Wars recently spoke to Star Wars Holocron about the final Season. Here is what Witwer said about what Star Wars creator George Lucas thinks of the final season.
“George [Lucas] has been calling Dave and giving him nice little comments on the episodes,” Witwer says. “I really, really hope we get some positive feedback from the maker himself when this comes out. This show has such a special place in George’s heart. He was so happy when he was making this show, and we were so happy to be implementing it for him…you really did just get a directive from George, and that directive got discussed and translated by Dave Filoni, and then it went right to the actors, animators, lighters, everything. It just got done. That’s the fun of watching the Siege of Mandalore, because it just feels pure in its intention.”
“It’s so cool that this is the last George Lucas produced Star Wars. The last Star Wars that has George’s fingerprints on it. I truly loved to hear that George was reacting well to [the final season of The Clone Wars]. And I’m happy to hear that he likes how Clone Wars is going so far this season and I really hope he likes our finale because that’s where it all counts.”
So, yeah, this is pretty meh for me. I think George gave up on Star Wars some time ago, which is probably why he sold Lucasfilm? Disney made a good decision to finish the story of The Clone Wars. Honestly, for a show aimed squarely at kids, I think The Clone Wars isn’t half bad. I enjoyed some story arcs far more than I did the sequel trilogy, that’s for sure.
I’ll sleep better tonight knowing what George Lucas thinks of the final season of The Clone Wars. Ok, that may be sarcasm, but I am happy to see how this show wraps up. I am especially interested in how Ahsoka’s story ends, for now. We know Ahsoka is making her live-action debut in The Mandalorian Season 2.
What do you think of Witwer’s comments? Do you care what Lucas thinks anymore, about anything? Leave your thoughts below as always.
