Rumour: Ending of Clone Wars series revealed? Plus, the Sith homeworld is… where?

February 1st, 2014 by Marc Comments

Our good friend Benjamin over at The Star Wars Underworld has been writing about how The Clone Wars animated series may conclude. We already know that additional Clone wars episodes are to be released soon to conclude the series that was cut short when Disney took over Lucasfilm.

The final three stories to be released are called:

Destiny: Guided by the Force, Yoda travels to the heart of the galaxy. There, on the planet where he finds the origin of the Force, he must face difficult trials. Only upon passing them will the Sages deem him worthy of learning the deepest mysteries of the Force….”

Sacrifice: On Moriband, the homeworld of the Sith, the time has come for Yoda to pass his final test. Only then will he learn the best-kept secret of his order, but first a most powerful enemy awaits….

Voices:  Yoda is deeply unsettled when he hears the voice of his deceased friend Qui-Gon Jinn in his head because he knows that not even a Jedi can speak to the living from beyond the grave. The Jedi Council is concerned about Yoda’s behaviour and wants to examine him further. But with the help of Anakin, Yoda can escape from the hospital and he sets out to find the origin of the voice by himself.

Ok, so we’re excited that there’s more Clone Wars to come, but Benjamin points something out in the write-ups that seems to contradict established EU continuity (not the first time Clone Wars has done that): “What’s interesting is the mention of Moriband as the the Sith homeworld. It’s long been established in the Expanded Universe, and in video games like The Old Republic, that homeworld of the Sith is Korriban.”

Jedi News is reporting that the Lucasfilm/Disney synopsis definitely said Moriband, not Korriban. However TSWU also add that the expanded universe has had multiple Sith home worlds (eg, Ziost and Korriban are both referred to as the homeworld of the Sith) so this could just be another planet added to the list…  I’m just excited that we’re going to the Sith homeworld!

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
