2020 was a big year for the ‘Star Wars’ franchise

A look back at the top ‘Star Wars’ stories from 2020, which included ‘The Clone Wars’ finale and ‘The Mandalorian’ return. Oh yeah, tons of rumors, too.

“Star Wars” had one heck of a year — and it is only the beginning of what’s to come next in the franchise.

You might not have expected “Star Wars” to have such a banner year since Disney capped the sequel trilogy at the end of 2019 with “The Rise of Skywalker.” That seemed to put a stamp on the franchise, letting it rest until whatever came next actually appeared.

Little did we know that 2020 would be such a major year for the franchise.

First came “The Clone Wars” season 7, which was billed as the final season of the show. Episodes centered around the end of the war and the final journey of Ahsoka Tano, the Jedi apprentice of Anakin Skywalker. We saw her final confrontation with Darth Maul, how she escaped Order 66 and what the future held for her. Not to mention, we witnessed one of the most beautiful scenes in “Star Wars” history to close out the show.

The summer came without any new content. But we saw plenty of concept art, leaks, rumors and theories shared online. Reports fluttered out, suggesting that new series and movies were coming.

It wasn’t until the fall that we got our dose of new content with season 2 of “The Mandalorian.” And what a season it turned out to be with the return of Mando, Baby Yoda (who we learned actually has a name!), Cara Dune and Greef Karga. Oh yeah, we saw the epic live-action debuts of Ahsoka Tano and Bo-Katan Kryze. Don’t forget Boba Fett’s legendary return and even Luke Skywalker coming back into the fray.

That’s not even mentioning Disney’s announcement of 10 — well, maybe 11, actually — “Star Wars” series and films due out over the next few years.

It’s been a busy year for “Star Wars.” Therefore, we’ve collected a number of our top-performing “Star Wars” content from 2020 and shared it below you give you an idea of what happened this year and what to expect moving forward.
