More than a year after the Clone Wars series officially stopped airing on television, we have the first trailer for the final season of the series. There have been some teasers and episode clips in the past (which you can see at the end of this post), but this trailer gives us significantly more insight into the season. Note that this will not air on Cartoon Network, but exclusively on Netflix beginning next Friday, March 7th. See the trailer below:
I do believe that past Clone Wars episodes are airing on Disney XD, but these last 13 episodes, dubbed “The Lost Missions,” will be exclusive to Netflix subscribers. Netflix offers a free, one month trial, so if you’ve not used that yet, that is an alternative for paying for the service. It is not clear whether they will release episodes on Netflix on a weekly basis (i.e. every Friday as CN did), or if all 13 will be released next Friday. To get the most out of the free trial, I would advise waiting and finding out how the episodes will be released – and if it is the former (weekly episodes), I would wait until they are all released in order to see every one within the trial period. I will update this post if I’m able to find out more. All past Clone Wars seasons will also be made available, so you can re-watch some of your favorite episodes or catch up with the series – even more reason to take advantage of the free Netflix trial.
In any event, it looks like the Clone Wars’ sixth and final season will revolve around several interesting story arcs. They will explore Order 66 and the fate of the clones, Yoda and his journey to Dagobah, and political conspiracies taking place in the Republic. It’s looking to be another exciting season.
