There are still some battles to be fought in The Clone Wars.

The Star Wars animated series ended its run on Cartoon Network after five seasons of bringing new characters -- and reintroducing some old favorites -- into the franchise's expansive mythos.

But it's not done yet: Supervising director Dave Filoni is heading up the completion of a few story arcs that were slated for production before Lucasfilm announced in March that it was taking its animation slate in a new direction following its purchase by Disney.

"There are questions that are pretty big as far as it comes with the Clone Wars and things that people have wanted to know," Filoni says. "They're just these concepts just hanging out there, and finally we're going to deal with them."

One of the arcs stars Jedi Master Plo Koon (voiced by James Arnold Taylor), who finds a lost lightsaber while on a mission on a sandstorm-laden planet with a platoon of clone troopers. It's the beginning of a mystery, and one that will make the Jedi question their role in the Clone Wars and the universe itself, according to Filoni.

"The Jedi have been fighting a war with an army that was commissioned by one of their own, Jedi Master Sifo-Dyas," he says. "But who was Sifo-Dyas, and what happened to him? The dark lord of the Sith has woven an intricate web to ensnare the Jedi, but it is not full-proof and sometimes a small clue, and a bit of chance, can lead to the unraveling of the best-laid plans."

While it's yet to be announced when and where these Clone Wars episodes will air, Filoni's team is coming close to putting final touches on the animation.

Three problems:

- it was reported that LucasAnaimation was closed down and staff
sent home, it's unlikely that anyone is "putting final touches"
on anything.

- Any supposed new episodes won't be playing on Cartoon Network
and are unlikely to be played ona Disney Channel. It's possible
they could be a DVD-only release (it's unlikely to be a cinema
movie).

- Sifo-Dyas died before the Clone Wars started. The only way
they could tell his story is in silly flashbacks, which I don't
think have been used before in the series (although I haven't
seen every episode yet), or stupidly change history by finding
him alive.
