Breaking news from Star Wars Celebration: Europe. The Clone Wars Season 5 on Blu-ray and DVD will be hitting shelves on October 15, 2013.
Additionally, there will be a box set containing all 5 seasons.
There's still no word on how the Bonus Content (which would have been Season 6) would be released. According to The Star Wars Underworld, Pablo Hidalgo mentioned that they're still trying to come up with ways to put out as much of it as possible, but no decisions have been made. They're even considering releasing it with some unfinished animation.
Watch this space for more information about when the Blu-rays will be available for preorder.
And here's a suggestion: We all want the complete collection and the art book and everything, right?
Why don't we all preorder Season 5 AND the complete set. Then we should pass our individual boxes off to others so they can love The Clone Wars as much as we do. You don't even have to give them away if you don't want, just loan them out. This show deserves to be seen by everyone.
Just announced at Star Wars Celebration Europe: the Star Wars: The Clone Wars box sets you're looking for.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Complete Season Five, the final season of the hit series, will release on October 15, 2013, on Blu-ray (2-disc, $59.97 MSRP) and DVD (3-disc, $49.98 MSRP). The collection delivers all 20 episodes, two as director's cuts never seen on TV, and supplements them with a host of behind the scenes bonus materials, cast and crew interviews, and deleted and alternate scenes, revealing the magic behind the making of the cutting-edge series.
In its Emmy-winning fifth season, the gripping Star Wars story moves closer to the grim events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and several major players face their destinies as the galaxy plunges into darkness. Planets are rocked by revolution, ancient Jedi secrets are explored, and Ahsoka Tano -- the spirited Padawan so central to the series -- faces a major crisis that will change her forever.
For those wanting to relive every moment of the epic series from the beginning comes the Star Wars: The Clone Wars Seasons 1-5 Collector's Edition, also releasing on October 15, 2013, on Blu-ray (14-disc, $149.99 MSRP) and DVD (19-disc, $119.98 MSRP). All previous complete season sets have been collected here for the first time. With unique packaging, the Collector's Edition also includes a brand new 54-page Art of The Clone Wars booklet that showcases concept art from across all five seasons, with many pieces never before published.
