Superhero Hype reports that the sixth and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will debut on Netflix on March 7. Disney/ABC TV, Lucasfilm and Netflix made the announcement today. The season will run for thirteen episodes and is called "The Lost Missions".
In addition to the final season, Netflix users will also get all of the previous seasons, including several director's cut episodes never before seen on TV, along with the feature film. This will make Netflix the exclusive home for the entire series.
Here's a synopsis: 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.
Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer, said: "Star 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. 'The Clone Wars' marks an important moment as Netflix welcomes more and more first-run content from The Walt Disney Company and its subsidiaries."
This is the first time any Star Wars content has been available on Netflix. Netflix and Disney currently have a deal which not only includes several original shows based on Marvel characters (starting in 2015) but first-run live-action and animated movies from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature and Lucasfilm starting in 2016. Netflix members can watch Disney, ABC Entertainment Group and Disney Channel films and TV shows in 41 countries.
