The final 13 episode season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is finally coming to fans, thanks to an agreement between Lucasfilm/Disney and Netflix. The sixth and final season, subtitled "The Lost Missions," will hit US and Canadian Netflix on March 7, 2014, alongside the other five seasons and the feature film. The multi-year agreement makes Netflix the exclusive streaming service for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, a press release said.
The final episodes will include a clone-centric arc featuring the genesis of Order 66, the secretly programmed order in the clone troopers that made them turn against the Jedi in Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith and led to the near-extermination of the Jedi. There will also be an arc featuring Anakin and Padme as an old friend of hers "tests their relationship to the limits," and finally an arc that centers on Master Yoda, visited by the Force-ghost of Qui-Gon Jinn, as seen in the above clip.
Seasons 1-5 will include "Director's Cut" episodes that never aired on TV; some were previously available on blu-ray.
"Stars 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 chief content officer. "The Clone Wars marks an important moment as Netflix welcomes more and more first-run content from The Walt Disney Company and its subsidiaries."
A Darth Maul arc originally developed for The Clone Wars was never finished in animation, and instead will come to fans via Dark Horse Comics, as previously announced.
