Season 7 Episode 2 of The Clone Wars drops today. If you loved the first episode, then you might want to stay up and catch Episode 2 right as it’s available. But just how long do you have to wait until Episode 2 of The Clone Wars is live on Disney Plus? You’ll be able to watch the newest episode very late on Thursday or any time on Friday. Read on for more details about the latest and greatest installment in the Star Wars universe on Disney Plus. This article will have spoilers for the previous seasons.
Episode 2 of ‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7 Will Be Available at 3 AM Eastern on Friday, February 28
A representative from Disney Plus confirmed with Heavy that new episodes of The Clone Wars will drop each week at 12 a.m. Pacific/1 a.m. Mountain/2 a.m. Central/3 a.m. Eastern. However, sometimes it may not show up on some devices until a little later than that.
The episode was released by 3 a.m. Eastern. Disney Plus subscribers can watch via direct link here.
If you don’t have a Disney+ subscription, you can stream The Clone Wars Season 7 Episode 2 free with a 7-day Disney Plus free trial.
Heavy noticed when watching The Mandalorian live that it sometimes takes a few minutes after an episode drops for the show to actually appear on viewers’ devices. That’s why we’re including a window for when you can expect the new episodes of The Clone Wars. Typically, most viewers are able to see the new episode appear no later than 30 minutes after the official drop time, but usually even sooner than that.
So you should be able to see Season 7 Episode 2 of The Clone Wars between 3:00 a.m. and 3:30 a.m. Eastern on Disney Plus on Friday, February 21. That’s between 2:05 a.m. and 2:30 a.m. Central, between 1:05 a.m. and 1:30 a.m. Mountain, and between 12:05 a.m. and 12:30 a.m. Pacific.
Here’s a look at when The Mandalorian debuted last year, to give you an idea of why there’s sometimes a window for when a new episode on Disney+ might show up on your device, depending on how you’re accessing the episode. The Mandalorian‘s Episodes 5 and 6 were available on desktop by 3:05 a.m. but neither showed up on the Apple TV app until around 3:15 a.m. Eastern. On November 29, Episode 4 was available everywhere by 3:24 a.m. Eastern. Some viewers said that for Episode 2, the new episode didn’t show up for them until about 3:24 a.m. Eastern on the Disney Plus app, even though desktop users said they saw the episode at 3 a.m. Eastern.
So that just means that if you’re looking for the new Clone Wars episode at 3:00 a.m. Eastern and it’s not there yet, it may take some time for it to show up on all devices. Since Disney has confirmed with Heavy that episodes are dropping at 3 a.m. Eastern, you might just have to wait a few more minutes or refresh your browser or device.
The description for Episode 2 reads: “A mysterious live signal leads Jedi General Anakin Skywalker, Captain Rex, and the Bad Batch to a Techno Union facility where they make a shocking discovery! They get more than they bargained for when they find themselves trapped by Separatist forces in a Distant Echo, an all-new episode of “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” Friday, February 28 on Disney+.”
