Kiner said, "It has been such a fantastic ride scoring Clone Wars and working with Dave Filoni and George Lucas was a dream come true. I feel like season seven is everything we all wanted Clone Wars to be, top to bottom. From the music to the animation to the story lines to the directing, this is the show I always wanted to be a part of!"
Now it is the end of the historic Clone Wars, as the forces of darkness have amassed great power in their bid to transform the Republic into the Galactic Empire.

The explosive final chapters of the Clone Wars chronicle the end of a major era in Star Wars history.
