"Dear Mr. George Lucas,

As we approach the 35th year since the debut of the groundbreaking Star Wars, the legacy of this monumental film and its sequels/prequels encompass innumerable achievements, from the way films are now made and merchandised, to the way they’re supported by fans. One of Star Wars’ most impressive achievements is the ever-growing body of literature that sprang out of the imagination of authors, editors and illustrators from your imagination as embodied on the big screen. Since 1978, these intrepid men and women—some of the greatest names in Science Fiction & Fantasy—have striven hard to harmonize, not only with the astounding vision laid out by you, but with the works of their fellow writers, artists and visionaries, creating something that’s rarely ever been seen in the history of literature: a body of work that—despite its enormity and diversity of media—is, for the main part, consistent within itself, a vast web of interlocking tales. This high level of continuity has been one of the greatest draws of this universe for new and old fans, as it equates to a legitimately functioning, alternate history. That is truly an admirable achievement, and it is owed to you for conceiving it, and for employing a strong, smart staff to keep track of it all, and ensure its consistent high quality.

Recently, however, there has been serious concern that this unified tapestry is under threat due to a seemingly relaxed attitude to continuity—particularly as it relates to the much welcomed Clone Wars animated TV series. Many of the contradictions that the show has created could have been identified and rectified without sacrificing the narrative, quality or impact of the storylines. Since much of the enjoyment of the Star Wars universe comes from the verisimilitude of the saga—that necessary aspect of congruous historicity—a loss of this, whether intentional or not, creates a domino effect of contradictions, and erodes the ability for newer and older fans to confidently move forward in their support of the saga. A fictional universe where different stories controvert one another is not one that can long survive, as has been demonstrated over the years by various franchises which—taking little measure to ensure congruity—plummeted.

We, thus, politely request that tighter measures be put in place to help protect the history present in the established Expanded Universe as embodied in all its past stories (with the exception of the 'Infinities' tales, which are intended to be outside continuity), be they films, novels, comics, short stories, live-action and animated TV series. We understand that, at times, a change is necessary, or comes about through human error. However, with the talent and creative minds at your disposal, these can be minimized or retroactively fixed so that years of novels and comics aren’t rendered null and void, creating the division and resentment that has recently burst forth amongst the fan community.

Star Wars has enjoyed over three decades of outstanding story-telling, allowing the universe to blossom into the unique and wildly successful franchise that it is today. From the first sighting of a Rebel Blockade Runner, through the dark times of the mid-‘80s, to the birth of the new era of stories in the ‘90s, up to the prequel trilogy and Clone Wars animated series, many have loyally followed the franchise, and many more continue to jump in. Rather than seeing these stalwart enthusiasts alienated, feeling that their hard-earned money was wasted on something that’s been rendered incongruous, we would wish to see them encouraged to delve even deeper. Star Wars can continue to grow and expand for another 35 years and beyond, but only if you set the example that story matters, inherent in which is respect for what has come before, the prior stories and their authors who’ve striven hard to live up to the high watermark that you set. We feel confident that, while this may be challenging, your creativity and imagination, along with those you employ, are up to this task, and will result in even stronger, more imaginative tales to come.

We appreciate you taking the time to hear our suggestions and thoughts." Petition of the 2000

I don't know why you would bring the Clone Wars animated series into this. I know some people that watch it but it's meant for kids. As long as it's made by people that care about money, and about milking Star Wars for every cent then of course there are gonna be things that just don't match up with movies made in the 80's. I mean, how many times do you have to hear the imperial march when a bad guy shows up. Let's be real and consider the Star Wars now to be just a franchise meant to make people money and cherish the movies that started it all. Anything that's true Star Wars doesn't have to have a price tag to continue the story.

I doubt JJ or Disney for that matter will ruin Star Wars, Dave Filoni was really the only one to do that.

I found out last fall before they released the season six on Netflix. That there was suppose to be eight seasons of the clone wars. These are some of the arcs and questions to be answered.

There is an arc about Dooku and talzen that was never finished in the Clone Wars.
Season 7 was going to have more Ahsoka
Darth Maul and mandelorin arc
Echo is still alive!
Rex arc
Concordian mining tunnel concept art
Season 7 and 8 were written?
In season eight there is another Yoda arc
The Echo arc the begging of the episode it was suppose to say "The Bad Batch"
The second episode of the Echo arc was suppose to say "A Distant Echo"
What happen to Hondo Ohnaka, Aurra Sing, Cad Bane, Baba Fet, during the end of the clone war and the rise of the empire?

This is some sites I found this info from
Makingstarwars.net also most info I found is from the blog Save the Clone wars Savetheclonewars.com these has some more info and concept art Starwars.com
I want to see these episodes and find out about these stories. I want George Lucius work to be finished. And never completed. I want to know what happen to Asoka when she left the order before order 66. They said season six will tie the loose ends it did not.
Savetheclonewars.com also somebody showed me a potion they made here it is Causes.com

Plus when Walt Disney was alive he never abandon stories or projects. Like in the 1930's he wanted to make Peter Pan, DisneyLand, just the war held his big plans till the war was over.
Also in the 1950's he made a show about Davy Crockett he killed Davy at the battle of the Alamo. Kids loved Davy so much Walt said if he knew that kids loved Davy so much he would not have killed him in the third episode. Then he made more episodes. If you agree with me and you want to see the episodes on Netflix. There are some people you can write too here
