Star Wars fans were thrust into a frenzy with the announcement of Disney’s acquisition of Lucasfilm and the announcement of more films on the way. Sadly with that came the cancelation of the epic series Clone Wars to make way for new things. When Lucas announced this series he had mentioned making at least 100 episodes and season five fulfilled that promise and more. Now you can re-live the best season yet with Clone Wars The Complete Season 5 on Blu-ray and DVD.
Clone Wars follows the events within the three year period taking place between Attack of the Clones and Revenge of the Sith. Season 5 picks up after Maul and Opress have been reunited and brimming with rage. While forcing Hondo and his pirates into their army to bring terror throughout the galaxy, they are confronted by Jedi that will do anything including risk their lives to save the Republic. After a theatrical film and four awesome seasons how could this show get any better? This season not only continued the awesome return of Darth Maul, but took the series down the dark path everyone had been waiting for. While the previous seasons had a lot of stand-alone stories, this season featured more long arcs further building the inevitable end that we all know is coming. While the Maul/Opress story was one of the best, it was the Ashoka aspect that really delivered that punch this series needed letting the fans see the evolution to where her story was heading and the beginning of the separation of the Jedi order. As with the previous seasons this showed delivered amazing animation and takes the viewers on journey’s with not just the main characters but some awesome new characters including a great arc featuring a team of droids led by one of the better new editions to the Star Wars Universe Colonel Meebur Gascon who is not only cool, but probably the smallest character to date. All of the voice actors have done great work through the years of this series and while this one still leaves a lot of questions still ends perfectly wrapping up a series that was not only about the Star Wars Universe, but also really the story of Ashoka.
As with the previous season every episode plays like a mini-film setting this series apart from everything else. Besides the beautiful high definition quality the Blu-ray also sports numerous special features including video commentaries on each episode, a collectible poster, and exclusive to the Blu-ray The Jedi Temple Archives. With the recent announcement of some sort of sixth season completed, while we wait to see how it will find its ways to fans, you can get out there and grab your copy of Clone Wars The Complete Season 5 available now.
