Star Wars: The Lost Missions — Season Six of The Clone Wars — OUT TODAY!!!

The Lost Missions

When Disney purchased Lucasfilm Ltd. one of the first things they did was conduct a poll of visitors to the Official Site as to whether or not they were fans of The Clones Wars animated series. I know because I took that poll. Apparently not enough fans of the highly, and critically, acclaimed show were involved though as the show was abruptly cancelled despite winning several Emmys. Read more after the jump.


Since the show was cancelled, with Disney also cancelling (for now) the 3D conversion of the saga films and instead opting to focus all their resources on the Sequel Trilogy and spinoffs, fans of The Clone Wars received merely a truncated “final season” dubbed “The Lost Missions” via Netflix. Well, today is the day that Season Six is finally released to the American fanbase. IF you are one of the minority who have never seen The Clone Wars series now is as good a time as any to purchase all six seasons and binge-watch them back to back to back! I can promise you it will be well worth your time. And I should also confess that I was not impressed by The Clone Wars movie and in fact didn’t watch the show until a few seasons had passed. But once I did, I fell in love with it and dare say you will too.


However, if none of my own personal testimony convinces you then perhaps you will be convinced by this EPIC trailer for Season Six:



I defy anyone to watch this trailer and then “The Lost Missions” and NOT think that some of what you are witnessing won’t have an affect on the Star Wars universe moving forward, starting with The Force Awakens.

    The best season! And I have a doubt. If Disney wants to make a cohesive universe, why the hell did they canceled The Clone Wars? Considering that the series would explain a lot of things of the prequels and the whole saga.

      Disney did not want to pay out to other companies to distribute TCW when Disney has their own channels that struggle to pull in a fan base.

        I know that, but there are another options.

          Like what?

            Either way you can only go so far stretching the CW storyline. We all know what happens in the end so it wasn’t a bad idea to delve into the other gaps in the SW storyline (holes to fill: Jedi Purge, Rise of the Empire) etc. Must also prepare fans for post OT criteria by further defining what the “Empire” was and how the ST will evolve from it since the books that did that are now considered “Legend.” They can always go back and fill in the CW gaps in a limited series or animated movie (will serve as a bit of nostalgia for CW purists). The only real fear is for Disney not to “Mickey Mouse” it into a watered down; over simplified version of its former self. If Season 6 was in fact under the direction of Disney, then its safe to say that the franchise is in good hands.

      Looking forward to buy and watch it. Always enjoyed watching clone wars series.

    Disney may have decided to re-purpose concepts from The Clone Wars as live action projects, since the latter will rake in far more money than cartoons. But I have no doubt that it was his enjoyment working on TCW and experimenting with taking SW into new genres that finally spurred George Lucas onto doodling ideas for the Sequel Trilogy which will have been passed onto Disney.

    I agree 100%. I to did not like the movie and waited until season 3 was out on DVD to catch-up. After I watched season 3 I was hooked and very sad when TCW was cancelled. But I was also right there the day Netflix released The Lost Missions and watch them all. Now on a regular bases I watch TCW over and over in chronological order per:

    I highly recommend watching the show in this order. It will bring a new understanding to the show!

    Echo-07, it took me quite awhile to give TCW a chance after being thoroughly unimpressed by the pilot/movie. I finally happened to see a used set of the Season 1 DVDs on sale. I took a chance, and was way more impressed than I expected to be (even with the asinine battle droid “comedy” and way too much Jar Jar.)

    And of course, the series just got better. I watched season 6 when it came out on Netflix, and I think Disney pulled the plug on it way too early. I think TCW easily had at least another couple of strong seasons in it, if not more. But of course, board room decisions like that rarely have anything to do with program quality or (god forbid) artistic merit.

    Season 6 is absolutely worth picking up for anyone who got caught up in the series. Some excellent stories in there!

      Season 6 delve into the depths of STAR WARS. Changed my whole perspective on the CW. Brought some closure, tied loose ends, and brought new hope for the franchise!!

    Also, for the time it was on TV, The Clone Wars was THE Star Wars event. With Disney, it became a messy sideline to the massively ambitious movie and live-action projects (centred on a different time period), and attention was better spent elsewhere. Star Wars Rebels is the fag-end of TCW, just a makeshift bridge between it and the movies – the main event from hereon.

    Now, if TCW had taken place after Return of the Jedi, then it might well not only still be in active production, but also being used as a high-profile lead-in to Episode VII.

    The Lost Missions was an awesome (if not abrubt) way to end the series…sadly the greatness of it left me wanting more, yet I was very satisfied with the finale. Especially with the Yoda arc. That is possibly my favorite moment in Star Wars media next to TESB. Awesome. I’d like to buy the series eventually, but as long as its on Netflix, I can’t justify the expense, but I’d love to own a hard copy as well.

      (hint hint). Xmas just around the corner! It would be nice if it included some exclusive behind the scenes info on CW and EP7.

  • November 11, 2014 at 6:58 pm

    Not availible to purchase in the UK. This article is misleading.

    • November 11, 2014 at 7:18 pm

      The article is clear that it is now available to the American fanbase.

    • November 11, 2014 at 7:23 pm

      “Well, today is the day that Season Six is finally released to the ((American)) fanbase. IF you are one of the minority who have never seen The Clone Wars series now is as good a time as any to purchase all six seasons and binge-watch them back to back to back!” ( which part of this was misleading anyone in the UK? LMAO how about you read the topic before you post and look like a tool??? thanks

      Can’t you order it off of Amazon in the US and ship over seas? or do Blu-ray’s also have regional coding to keep it from playing in say, the UK?
      Besides didn’t I see an article a few months ago about season 6 releasing in Germany?

      • November 12, 2014 at 9:12 pm

        I’m sure there are ways of removing regional coding from DVD and Blu-Ray players if you look hard enough online…. ^_^

    Looks great

    I’m still holding out for a complete COMPLETE series boxset. I took my son to see the pilot in the theater and thought it was the drizzling sh*ts. Never really gave the show a chance after that, though I hear it got a lot better as time went on. I’ve just been waiting for a final set to come out and do a binge watch on it.

    • November 12, 2014 at 9:14 pm

      Consider the movie an extended episode. That’s it. Much like the pilot for Rebels, it’s just a way of having a longer storyline straight off-the-bat without opening with a two-parter, because the first half would have left most people cold and uninspired. It really doesn’t even feel like a movie, more like three disjointed episodes duct-taped together for the sake of a (pointless) theatrical release.

    Willing to check this out after avoiding the main series for so long since the prequel cast was so heavily featured. The canon plot points connecting to the sequel trilogy is the main draw. Although Rebels is a rea breath of fresh air with the all original cast.
