Star Wars: The Clone Wars is an animated television micro-series (2003), and a 3D CGI animated film and television series (2008). It is made up of 133 episodes, spanning over 7 different seasons.


Since The Clone Wars are a part of the Star Wars franchise and arrived at a time when the franchise was already alive and booming with fans, the fandom was quite big since the beginning. During the series' hiatus from 2014-2020, the fandom was in a period of drought, but fan works were made nonetheless, most likely because of the release of the Star Wars Sequel Trilogy which was released at the time, bringing a whole number of new fans to the franchise and the lesser-known projects.


This fandom has quite a lot of gen works. Gen works focused on the Master/Padawan relationships of Obi-Wan Kenobi & Anakin Skywalker and Anakin Skywalker & Ahsoka Tano (canon friendship and master-apprentice relationship) are quite popular.

The fandom also has a large number of rarepair works, most of which include the main characters such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Anakin Skywalker, Padmé Amidala, and others. Shipping among the clones (often also called cloneshipping or clonecest) is also incredibly popular and those are some of the most popular in the fandom. Clone ships are also the source of a lot of conflict in the fandom.
