BREAKING: 'The Clone Wars' Bonus Content Premiering on Netflix March 7th

By: Dominic Jones

At long, long last it has been revealed.  Ever since the announcement that the hit animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars would be winding down, fans have been clamoring for the answer to two questions about the bonus content we were promised, when and where?  Finally, we have our answer.

Lucasfilm announced today on that the final season of The Clone Wars, aka The Lost Missions (aka the bonus content), would be released on March 7th on Netflix in the U.S and Canada.  In addition to the 13 episodes that are The Lost Missions, the entire series of The Clone Wars, including the 2008 film and several director's cuts of episodes, will be available on Netflix at the same time. 

According to,

"Exclusive Licensing Agreement with The Disney/ABC Television Group Brings Star Wars Content to Netflix Streaming Members for the First Time
The Galactic Republic, Disney/ABC Television Group, Lucasfilm, and Netflix Inc. today announced the highly anticipated debut of the sixth and final season of the Emmy(r) Award-winning series Star Wars: The Clone Wars exclusively to Netflix members in the US and Canada on Friday, March 7. Accompanying the 13-episode new season dubbed "The Lost Missions" will be the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars saga, which includes several director's cut episodes never seen on TV as well as the feature film. This multi-year agreement also makes Netflix the exclusive subscription service for the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars series. 

In these eagerly anticipated episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed. An intrepid clone trooper discovers a shocking secret, Anakin Skywalker's closest relationship is tested to its limits, and what Master Yoda discovers while investigating the disappearance of a Jedi could forever change the balance of power in the galaxy. Fans will not only be able to watch the thrilling finale, they'll be able to see more of Star Wars: The Clone Wars than ever before as Netflix will also stream the director's cut of seasons one to five. 

"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." 

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the first time any Star Wars content has been available for Netflix streaming members. The deal follows a recent announcement from Netflix and The Walt Disney Company to bring multiple original series based on Marvel characters to the service in 2015. Netflix will be the exclusive US subscription television service for first-run, live-action, and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature, and Lucasfilm beginning in 2016. Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC Entertainment Group and Disney Channel films and TV shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates."

All I can say is FINALLY!  With the episodes set to debut on German television this weekend, fans elsewhere have been wondering if and when they'd get to see the episodes.  For some time now Netflix has seemed to make the most sense, given their massive audience and Disney's recent deals with them to release original content from Marvel via Netflix and it seems Lucasfilm and Disney felt the same way.

Now, the countdown begins....
