Stream The Clone Wars Now

The premiere of The Clone Wars Season 7 airs this week and you might just want to stay up and catch it live, no matter how early in the morning it’s airing. This is a pretty big event after such a long wait since Season 6. But just how long do you have to wait until Episode 1 of The Clone Wars is live on Disney Plus? You’ll be able to watch the newest episode very late tonight or any time tomorrow. 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 1  of ‘The Clone Wars’ Season 7 Went Live at 3 AM Eastern on Friday, February 21

A representative from Disney Plus confirmed with Heavy that new episodes of The Clone Wars will drop each week at 12 a.m. Pacific/3 a.m. Eastern/2 a.m. Central. However, sometimes it may take a bit longer to show up on your device.

The direct browser link to the episode, viewable only by Disney+ subscribers, is here. The episode is called “The Bad Batch” and it’s about 23 minutes long.

If you don’t have a Disney+ subscription, you can stream The Clone Wars Season 7 Episode 1 free with a 7-day Disney Plus free trial.

Heavy noticed when watching The Mandalorian live that sometimes it would take a little bit longer for the new episode to show on all 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 Episode 1 of The Clone Wars Season 7 sometime 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, 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 for you, depending on how you’re watching the show. Episode 7 was live on desktop browsers by 3:10 a.m. Eastern. Heavy observed that both 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. Heavy did not see Episode 3 on the app or on the website as of 3:14 a.m. Eastern. But by 3:20 a.m. Eastern, the episode was available everywhere. And 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.
