And although the animation is over, Lanter has revealed to Entertainment Weekly that he will reprise the role in a new project in the saga.
“There is a new animation in development at Lucasfilm. I’ve been involved in things that I can’t talk about yet. But I can assure you that you will see Anakin again. I never gave up on the character, whether it was dubbing games or new studio projects, ”he says enthusiastically.
Unfortunately, he didn’t give details about the project, but Anakin may appear in flashbacks to the ‘The Bad Batch’ animation, which accompanies some clonetroopers during the rise of the Empire.
The star also reflected on the end of “ The Clone Wars ”, saying:
“I think the end of the series wasn’t that shocking to me because we were able to give the plot a proper ending. I was shocked at the end of Season 6 because no one knew if we were going to finish the story the first time around, so there was that feeling of “ unfinished business ” … But this time we got it. ‘finished as planned. by Dave [Filoni, co-criador da animação].

Through a statement on the official website of the saga, Dave Filoni, co-creator of the series, said:
“It’s very meaningful and rewarding to have the opportunity to put together the last bits of history and I’m very happy for it, which makes me reflect on all the people I’ve worked with over the years. . I think the whole team that worked on the animation feels it too, because the conclusion reinforces everything we learn from George Lucas. “
‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ debuted in 2008 with an animated feature film that spawned the Cartoon Network series in 2009.
After purchasing Lucasfilm in 2012, Disney ended production in its 5th season, but Netflix saved it for another season in 2014, but the series ended up being discontinued with no expected return.
With the launch of Disney +, it has been confirmed that the series will end in its 7th season, with only 12 episodes.
For those unfamiliar with it, the plot takes place between the events of “ Star Wars: Attack of the Clones ” and “ Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, ” replicating the battles in which Anakin Skywalker and Obi- Wan Kenobi participated, alongside new characters like Ahsoka Tano.
One of the most striking arcs in the animation was Darth Maul’s survival in his duel with Kenobi in “The Phantom Menace”, relinquishing the title of “Dark” and pursuing a life of crime.
