The full trailer for the sixth and final season of The Clone Wars is up now through IGN. As stated previously, the first five seasons will be available on March 7th along with The Lost Missions for Netflix subscribers. No word yet on whether or not the episodes will be released on DVD, but money is money, so I’d bet on it eventually. They have a lot of loose ends to try and tie up in however many episodes are left and I didn’t see any Tano in that trailer. Sorry, murph…

Yep, a new cartoon is in the works. It’s called Rebels and it’s set in the period between the events of Episode III and IV. I approach this news with cautious optimism. I never got into the Clone Wars cartoon series, I’m only familiar with the LEGO product tie-in and man did I hate those sets. The minifigs were ugly, which to this day I still cannot reconcile in my head the logic behind the decision on why they look so radically different from every other Star Wars minifigures. It’s all Star Wars isn’t it? Anyways, the same Art Director behind the Clone Wars is also going to be involved with this new venture, so there’s a slight chance that, stylistically speaking, Rebels will look and feel the same as the Clone Wars which can be good or bad depending on how you felt about it. All I know is that this will give us LEGO fans new sets to look forward to. I just hope the minifigs look normal and not some freaky eyed abominations.
If you’re attending Star Wars Celebration Europe, you’ll have the chance to be one of the first people to see its debut. Otherwise, look for it on Disney Channel sometime in 2014 with a series to air on Disney XD.
Thanks to Jared for the heads up.
The rumors are true. Today, StarWars.com announced that the Clone Wars is ending with the current season. But that’s not all, Star Wars: Detours, the Seth Green fronted project is also on hold as well as Star Wars: Underworld and Star Wars: 1313, both of which I have no reference for but some of you might. Disney’s actions really are bringing a new era to the Star Wars universe. “No more prequel crap” as Firespray put it (I’m paraphrasing here as his actual words aren’t safe for younger ears). Thoughts? Reactions? Sound off in the existing thread.
I should clarify that it was Lucasfilm that cancelled the series and not the big D. But it doesn’t take a genius to think that the new owners might have had a great influence on this move.
