One fan recreated the intro for Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 7 and used the Friends’ iconic title song in the clip for a video mash-up.
Before Disney acquired Lucasfilm, The Clone Wars was the only source of content Star Wars fans had since the prequel trilogy. Kicking off in 2008, it consistently garnered high ratings and favorable reviews from critics for its first five seasons, which aired traditionally. This was why many were disappointed when it was suddenly canceled in 2013. Due to fan clamor, Disney and Lucasfilm eventually released additional outings dubbed the “Lost Missions” that made up its sixth season. With Disney+, however, The Clone Wars was given one final opportunity to properly wrap up its story with the seventh season that aired on the streaming platform from February to May 2020.
Now that the arc of The Clone Wars is complete, fans can enjoy the animated series in its entirety, especially since all seasons are available for streaming on Disney+. However, one fan, Lilylilie, took a different approach in celebrating the show as they came up with a fan-made video featuring snippets from the series coupled with the Friends‘ iconic opening song. Watch it below:
While the theme song gives the final season of The Clone Wars a lighter vibe, similar to Friends’ tone, that’s not the case. There were a lot of heart-wrenching moments in the show’s last several episodes as it coincides with the events of Star Wars: Episode III — Revenge of the Sith, which means Anakin Skywalker’s spiral into the dark side was looming on the horizon. The parting shot of the series was Darth Vader picking up Ahsoka Tano’s lightsaber, making their reunion in Star Wars Rebels much more tragic. Despite this, the video also highlights the friendship forged by The Clone Wars‘ main cast. While Anakin lost his way, that doesn’t invalidate everything he and his former allies went through during these tumultuous times.
While the story of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is over, character arcs could continue, particularly with Ahsoka Tano, who is set to make her live-action debut in The Mandalorian. Supposedly played by Rosario Dawson, the character will encounter Din Djarin, whose current mission is to reunite Baby Yoda with the Jedi. Granted that Ahsoka isn’t technically a member of the Jedi Order anymore, she could still shed some light on the kid and what he can do.
