Netflix Lands Star Wars: The Clone Wars' Final Run, Plus Five Seasons of Director's Cuts
Netflix will be the home of Star Wars: The Clone Wars‘ sixth and final season, the streaming service announced on Thursday.
But wait, more there is.
In addition to releasing the entire 13-episode
Kessel farewell run, dubbed “The Lost Missions,” on Friday, March 7, Netflix will make available all five previous seasons of the CGI-animated series, including several director’s cut episodes never seen on TV.
In The Clone Wars’ closing episodes, “Some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed, an intrepid clone trooper discovers a shocking secret, Anakin Skywalker’s closest relationship is tested to its limits and what Master Yoda discovers while investigating the disappearance of a Jedi could forever change the balance of power in the galaxy.”
The Clone Wars previously aired on Cartoon Network, but the cabler announced their parting of the ways in March 2013.
A new animated series, Star Wars Rebels, will premiere this fall on Disney XD and bridge the time period between the Star Wars III: Revenge of the Sith and IV: A New Hope motion pictures.
