Star Wars Has Completely Changed The Clone Wars Since A New Hope - But Why?

Since Luke Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi first discussed the Clone Wars in A New Hope, the conflict has changed several times throughout the development of the Star Wars franchise. George Lucas wouldn't allow any Clone Wars stories to be written before he began work on the prequel trilogy, meaning any revelations on what the war looked like were few and far between. Even after the Clone Wars was revealed on the big screen, there have been several versions of the conflict across different mediums. Disney purchasing the franchise created similar complications, keeping certain parts of the Clone Wars while disregarding others.
While the Clone Wars' constant state of change over the years created confusion for fans, it also presents a fascinating opportunity to examine how previous Clone Wars projects ultimately contributed to the next. It's also worth noting why certain changes were made by Star Wars creatives, and how these decisions shaped the franchise's future. This makes the Clone Wars one of the most interesting topics in Star Wars, full of variety and different timelines for fans to dissect. It all begins with the earliest stories from the modern Star Wars expanded universe, and what authors thought the Clone Wars would eventually look like.
The Early EU's Version Of The Clone Wars Because of the limited information available to authors, the early EU's version of the Clone Wars was different from what Lucas eventually created. Early Star Wars guidebooks implied that the Clone Wars ended long before the rise of the Empire, and the Bantam era stories assumed that the clones were the antagonists, created by clone masters who waged war against the Republic. All of this changed with Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones when Lucas revealed that the clone army was created for the Republic, though they would later be instrumental in the destruction of the Jedi Order.
The Clone Wars Multimedia Project The Clone Wars were further expanded through a Star Wars multimedia project, which set out to chronicle the war in real-time before the release of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith. This included adult novels, comics, video games, young reader books, and short stories, all organized in a Clone Wars timeline by months after Attack of the Clones. The multimedia project allowed for a great deal of variety and detailed character development over the course of three years, giving fans plenty of stories to invest in before the prequel trilogy came to an end. However, this wasn't the only Clone Wars timeline release between Episodes II and III.
Genndy Tartakovsky's Clone Wars 2D Micro Series Originally designed to promote the other Clone Wars stories, Genndy Tartakovsky's Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series became a huge hit, running for three seasons on Cartoon Network. While the series includes many of the same characters and events as the multimedia project, there were a few contradictions as well. This included Anakin being knighted at the start of the war, rather than at the end like in the books, and a different version of events leading directly into Revenge of the Sith. While its timeline is slightly different, Clone Wars was still a big turning point in how the war was depicted, leading into the next big TV project.
