One of the questions that fans are asking is whether we will learn more about the Darksaber. It’s appeared in The Clone Wars, but will it make another appearance? The weapon has a big role to play in Star Wars lore, so fans are very curious what will be revealed next.
The Clone Wars takes place between Star Wars: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith.
Ahsoka Tano is Anakin’s apprentice and is one of fans’ favorite characters, along with Yoda. During the sixth season, Yoda was facing off against Darth Bane and was told there’s another Skywalker besides Anakin.
In Season 5, Maul took over Mandalore and killed Duchess Satine. Season 7 of The Clone Wars is expected to cover the Siege of Mandalore. This was one of the last battles of the Clone Wars.
