They might be doing the Bad Batch over Sons of Dathomir because the former would be easier to produce with what they have already.

Or perhaps the new Clone Troopers in the Bad Batch=New Toys to market.

They should have just done both since the Bad Batch eps were already mostly done. It's going to be odd to have Maul show up without SoD since that means the last time we saw him was Sidious taking him away.

I'm guessing Disney didn't want to commit that much money to this in general though, unfortunately.

I don’t believe this was shown on the main stream right? Unless I somehow missed it but the droids, animatronic creature panel is up on the SW YouTube channel

Unfortunately, I didn't even realize it was in Chicago this year until it was already too late. I prefer watching from home anyway, but it would be nice to go at least once. Oh well, maybe sometime when they start doing movies again it will be back here.

They could bridge it without SoD. Maybe Palpatine could have some scene about letting it all happen for his own purpose and allowing maul on mandalore so the republic can come in?

It's possible I guess. My understanding though was that all of these arcs were already pretty explicitly laid out into episodes even though they hadn't yet been produced. So adding a scene like that would take time from something else that was planned... unless the new episodes are somehow longer than the old ~22 minute standard -- which I suppose is possible. But, like, Bad Batch at minimum was already 100% aligned to four 22 minute episodes.

Ya that's my understanding too sadly.

It seems like Dave modified the scripts a little to tie it in with more canon stuff, so it's possible we could get a small callback tying it to Son of Dathomir

I'm really curious about what Sam said though. That Maul seems to be carrying the same rock over that hill over and over again only to fail, but this time just this once and never again he tries something different. Gonna be interesting to see what he means.

Plo Koon love <3
I was a fan ever since I played as him as a kid in Jedi Power Battles. Utilizing him in Clone Wars was great.

I just noticed this is called Clone Wars Season Six Sneak Peek.
I figured The Lost Missions would be retroactively considered season 6 and this would be season 7 just to make everything congruent and not confusing. Guess not!
Yessss! That's where my love of Plo Koon started. Also you could fight him in Star Wars Obi Wan for the original xbox in a battle royale mode where you fought the whole jedi council for no reason. Loved that game. I think Power Battles was back when they had Plo Koon with an awesome yellow lightsaber. That's really what drew me to him so much.

I do wonder if there is gonna be a Celebration next year what with no films for a while and I think there could be but it will be more of an actual celebration of whats been rather than what is to come.

Adam Driver & Mark Hamill both missing this year ( Adam probably busy with his Zombie movie & maybe something else and Mark Hamill doing his Chucky Voice work)

So maybe next year will be (if there is one announced today)

- A look at and all the promotional stuff for Episode 9 dvd release roughly May 2020

- Cassian & K2 Panel with possible very early footage and or Concept Art

- An Announcement Panel of that rumoured 4K boxset That people thought was coming this year, more likely next year reason - All 9 Films will be available for a complete box and also Fox home media rights to ANH is up (though that no longer matters 🤣since Disney own Fox)

- A full Saga Panel about 9 films which could last 1.5-2hrs, chatting to the entire Saga cast members that they have available. (Everyone from Ewan McGregor & Hayden Christensen to Mark Hamill & Frank Oz, to Daisy Ridley & Adam Driver and more from all 3 eras)

- A Mandalorian Recap and or possible look at early Season 2 stuff (this would be April 2020 dont forget)

- A Clone Wars retrospective at that point in time next year we would have seen the last Season.

- Dave Filonis Next Animated Show or Live Action Show announcement

- Empire Strikes Back 40th Anniversary Panel

- Obi Wan TV show Announcement Panel - Oh hey you didn’t think Ewan would be there just for the Saga Panel Did you?

- Resistance Season 3 Panel

- Look at Art & Design for the Entire Saga Panel

- Galaxys Edge promos Panel (just a chat how its going since opening, any new plans for extra features in the future, basically an ad to go see it)

- In Conversation With Ian McDiarmid

- In Conversation with Mark Hamill

- The usual Comics & Merch Panels

- Another Videogame Announcement for 2022/23 release? Battlefront 3 or Other?

- Lego Videogame Panel that is in the Works

- Other Full Saga Panels

Yeah even without a new Film to promote, next year is certainly one they could squeeze out and then Break for 2021 or will they break next year and come back 2021?

The year Ewan rocks up to the celebration is the moment I start believing a Obi-Wan series is happening.
Celebration isn’t a yearly thing so wouldn’t expect one next year. We didn’t have one last year.
Looking at the track record it's possible we might get two in a row, so you never know.

Probably depends on what they've got in the pipeline, last year was prettymuch just Solo in terms of non comic book/book projects.

Yep. I'm sad he didn't keep it for TCW. Yellow is a cool saber color.
