SAVING 'THE CLONE WARS' FROM AN UNCERTAIN FUTURE...
With the current future of STAR WARS in flux before its sure-to-be, phoenix-like rebirth in 2016, a select group of fans are worried as to whether the latest, fifth season of the hit animated series THE CLONE WARS might be its last-an unneccessary victim of the contractual end of CARTOON NETWORK's association with the show/LUCASFILM, coupled with DISNEY's commercial interests in wanting to push ahead with all-new STAR WARS material beyond what has already been developed. Three episodes of the latest season (the Clovis plotline) have already been lost with a reduced episode count down to 20 rather than 22, causing much anxiety within fandom.
A fan petition has been set-up to make all the major power players at DISNEY and LUCASFILM aware that we want this series to continue production and end on an eventual note of completist success - either with a sixth (which had already been in production before the news of DISNEY's purchase of LUCASFILM) or additional seventh year.
Add your name to the cause and pass it on. There's no harm in STAR WARS fandom's mighty worldwide voice being sent out in support of this noble cause: Save the Clone Wars Animated Series | causes.com
