After the announcement of 12 brand new episodes of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars at SDCC a few weeks back (click here for a full video of the panel if you haven’t had a chance to see it yet), creator Dave Filoni has spoken about the pressure that it brings.

Earlier this year, fans had to say goodbye to the Ghost crew from Star Wars Rebels, but producer Dave Filoni confirmed at San Diego Comic-Con that Star Wars: The Clone Wars would get a final season next year after being unexpectedly canceled in 2014. With fans clamoring for new episodes since the series’ cancellation, Filoni admits there’s a new pressure he has to handle with crafting new stories, but he ultimately has to stick with his gut as a storyteller.

“With Clone Wars, I will say there is a bit of pressure because, obviously from [the reaction to the new season], the people loved it. I mean, they grew up with it. It was massive,” Filoni shared with “So I do feel the pressure of wanting to make something amazing for them, and I challenge myself to not take the easy outs in the story and not do simple things.”
