With only a few episodes left in its fifth season, Star Wars: The Clone Wars is ramping up to its season finale. Tomorrow morning’s episode, “The Lawless,” will be the first of a five-episode story arc featuring the Mandalorian terrorist group, the Death Watch, taking over the Galactic Republic. Check out the clip below for a look at the reunion of Darth Maul his old master, Darth Sidious.
As teased in the season five trailer, there should be an epic lightsaber battle between Darth Maul and Darth Sidious, with Maul’s brother, Savage Opress, joining in as well. The next clip features Obi-Wan Kenobi as he attempts to break his old girlfriend, Duchess Satine, out of a Mandalorian prison. Obi-Wan Kenobi is disguised as a Mandalorian, and in true Kenobi fashion, he’s quick on his feet.
Once the animated series finishes up its fifth season in the beginning of March, Star Wars: The Clone Wars will move from the Cartoon Network to Disney XD as part of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm. It would be paired with the other Star Wars animated series, the Seth Green and Matthew Senreich created Star Wars: Detours.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars was originally only going to run for five seasons, with 100 episodes, but now that Disney owns the property, there’s no telling how long they will keep it on the air. Considering that there are only a few years between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith, it seems like they should wrap up the storyline soon to bridge the two films together.
“The Lawless” will air tomorrow, February 2nd, at 9:30 a.m. on the Cartoon Network.
