Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 7 - 10 Ways It's The REAL Conclusion To The Skywalker Saga
10. A Proper Plan Is In Place
Fans who were disappointed with TROS had one major issue in particular - there was no consistent plan. Despite promising to wrap up the main Star Wars saga and the sequel trilogy, the film felt like more of a standalone adventure in which Palpatine was shoehorned in at the last minute to get the fans excited.
While Kathleen Kennedy has gone on record to say the return of the Emperor was planned from the start, there's since been the leak of Colin Trevorrow's original version of the film (Duel of the Fates), and it's very different from the final product, with Palpatine only given a small cameo and definitely staying dead.
Point being, there clearly wasn't a cohesive plan with the sequel trilogy at all, and as such, the latest batch of Star Wars films felt disparate, and not a part of one, cohesive journey.
In stark contrast, Season 7 of The Clone Wars has been in development for years. Dave Filoni had a plan for the show since its inception, and a set point in which to aim for in the Star Wars timeline. It wouldn't be surprising if The Clone Wars ended with the kidnapping of Chancellor Palpatine, and Anakin and Obi-Wan leading the clones into space to rescue him, heading straight into Revenge of The Sith.
