New Star Wars: The Clone Wars episodes appear in the form of unfinished reels on Starwars.com with an introduction to not only them, but other unfinished stories of the Clone Wars we will finally get to see in different forms other then television.
Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir has already been released, and chronicled the relationship between Maul and the witch Mother Talzin, leader of the Nightsisters, the same faction Clone Wars favorite, Asajj Ventress, is a part of. The 4-part miniseries produced by Dark Hors, also reveals more of Darth Maul’s past, and how Darth Sidious and Mother Talzin are connected. The next Clone Wars story will tell the story of Asajj Ventress and Quinlin Vos, as the face off against Darth Tyrannus. Not much else was revealed about the a Ventress/Vos arc, but it is also revealed that Ventress now wields a yellow-bladed lightsaber.
The next set of un-produced Clone Wars episodes arrived today in the form of rough reels. They aren’t too hard to watch once you get passed the quality, and remember you are actually watching new, full 22 minute episodes of a series that was cancelled last year. The reels tell the story of a maverick Jedi woman, in the likeness of Qui Gon, and her murder investigation as Anakin and Obi Wan inspect the case. Clues reveal a Separatist plot to acquire a powerful weapon that could prove devastating for the Republic. The episodes are actually pretty good and reveal more about the relationship between Anakin and Obi Wan in the wake of Ahsoka’s departure from the Jedi Order.

There are still many other Clone Wars stories that remain unfinished that hopefully will be revealed one day, especially the one involving Cad Bane, Boba Fett, and Aurra Sing.
Here’s a bit of forgotten information: last year Disney and LucasFilm signed an exclusive deal with Netflix that will allow the online streaming service to put out original conten, starting in 2016. Maybe some of these unfinished arcs will be released as live-action mini-series’ with one focusing on Cad Bane!
