On March 7th, Star Wars fans will finally be able to get closure on Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series as Lucasfilm and ABC/Disney have announced that the last season–abbreviated as it is–will be coming to Netflix.
What’s more is that the entire award-winning series will be joining it. All five completed seasons, as well as the 13 episodes that make up the last season, will be available to stream. These final 13 episodes are being called “The Lost Missions”, and look to focus more on the Jedi/Clone stories and less on the Night Sisters/Maul/Mandalorian stories.
In addition to the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars series, Netflix has also acquired the feature-length theatrical release that kicked off the series in 2008. To put it bluntly, this is fantastic news for Star Wars fans.
“Star Wars is one of the most iconic franchises of all time and this series joins a long line of Disney content that Netflix members are, and will continue to enjoy, for years to come,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix’s chief content officer.
This is arguably one of the highest profiled television series that Netflix has acquired and it’s coming just in time to binge before Star Wars: Rebels, the newest CGI Animated by Clone Wars creator-creative director Dave Filoni, hits later this year.
