[Contains Spoilers of Star Wars: The Clones Wars Season 7 episode “Shattered.”] Darth Revan is arguably still one of the most popular Star Wars characters outside of the feature films. So much so the he’s been featured in everything from video games, to books, to action figure form. Granted, most works in which Revan appears are considered “Legends.” However, there have been enough references to the character in recent years to declare him canon once more. A recent episode of The Clone Wars seems to contain yet another.
In the penultimate episode of The Clone Wars’ final season, “Shattered,” Ahoska Tano and newly-promoted Commander Rex prepare to take the captured Maul to the Jedi Council on Coruscant. Mandalorian leader Bo-Katan delivers Maul to them in an ancient Jedi prison container. And right there in the middle of the carvings on it is what appears to be an image of, you guessed it, Revan.
Revan appears in The Clone Wars
Eagle-eyed Redditor Master_of_Serpents spotted the possible reference to the Old Republic scourge of the galaxy, which you can see in the image above. The image certainly bears a strong resemblance to Revan, for sure. His visage on an ancient Jedi prison also makes a lot of sense, if you know the fallen Jedi’s history. He was once the Supreme Commander of the Jedi… during the Mandalorian Wars. Of course, he turned to the Dark Side and terrorized the galaxy, thus giving him a dark history with Mandalore.
Plus this isn’t the first time he appeared (well, was supposed to appear) in The Clone Wars. The ancient Sith had a deleted scene in the Mortis arc as you can see above.
With references to Darth Revan in The Last Jedi, an appearance in the Galaxy of Heroes game, and now this apparent Clone Wars reference, its seems the fan-favorite Sith is indeed back in canon for good. What that means for the future of the character remains to be seen.
