Star Wars: The Clone Wars
With Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm this week, it's now expected that the CG animated "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" series will likely be making a move from The Cartoon Network to Disney’s XD network.

Time Warner has the license for the series only through the end of the current fifth season. When that season ends is when a decision on continuing the show will be made. [Source: THR]
