Darth Maul & Ahsoka Showdown Teased in Star Wars: The Clone Wars New Episode Descriptions

Clone Wars

Star Wars: The Clone Wars , the animated series that aired from 2008 through 2014, was revived for a final season and has been airing every Friday on Disney+ since February 21. Clone Wars is set between Attack of the Clones and the Revenge of the Sith in the Star Wars timeline and featured characters both old and new, including Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Yoda, Padme Amidala, as well as Ahsoka Tano, Anakin's padawan, and clone trooper Captain Rex. The series promised three new story arcs and 12 new episodes.


Even though much of the entertainment world is delaying projects due to COVID-19, according to a tweet by @JordanMaison , Star Wars : The Clone Wars series will continue releasing episodes of the animated series on Disney+ on Fridays and has listed the episodes debuting in April and their descriptions:

Episode 707 - "Dangerous Debt"

Taken prisoner by the Pykes, Ahsoka and the Martez sisters attempt to escape.

Episode 708 - "Together Again"

Ahsoka bargains for the sisters' freedom and makes a startling discovery.

Episode 709 - "Old Friends Not Forgotten"

Anakin and Obi-Wan must decide whether to help Ahsoka pursue Maul or rescue the Palpatine.

Episode 710 - "The Phantom Apprentice"

Ahsoka and Republic forces confront Maul on Mandalore.


Those up to date with this new season of The Clone Wars know that Ahsoka Tano returns in this coming Friday's episode , but these episode titles and their descriptions offer more insight into where her story this season is headed. The most intriguing episode in this release is Episode 709: "Old Friends Not Forgotten." Anakin hasn't seen or interacted with his former padawan Ahsoka since she chose to leave the Order back during The Clone Wars Season 5 - this is with the exception of her duel with Anakin, who was then Darth Vader, in the second season of Star Wars Rebels . Another interesting note from these episode descriptions is the tease of Ahsoka's interactions with Maul on Mandalore. The Siege of Mandalore is an event fans of the series are aware of but have never seen. Some have speculated what happens on Mandalore may also be connected to The Mandalorian .
