While it seemed like the war was long over, it seems it wasn’t quite finished. In a very surprising move, Lucasfilm officially announced during San Diego Comic-Con that the fan-favorite animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been revived.

According to StarWars.com, producer Dave Filoni revealed during a 10th anniversary celebration for the series that it’s coming back for 12 brand new episodes on Disney’s upcoming streaming platform. He also brought along a new image for the returned show and a first trailer.

Beginning in 2008, the series followed Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Ahsoka Tano and various clone troopers in the time between the second and third episodes of the Star Wars prequel trilogy. After five seasons it was abruptly canceled before it got a short sort of sixth season on Netflix, known as “The Lost Missions.”

Filoni moved on to launch the recently wrapped after four seasons Star Wars Rebels and the recently announced Disney XD series Star Wars: Resistance which takes place closer to the time of the new Disney/Lucasfilm Star Wars saga films.

There is no word on airdate quite yet, as Disney’s platform doesn’t have a debut date either.
