‘Star Wars: Clone Wars’ Season 6 Trailer Teases the Lost Missions

Published 1 year ago by , Updated March 8th, 2014 at 12:27 am,

As you can see above, fans who supported the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series through 5 seasons are going to get some closure after all, before the animated side of the Star Wars universe is re-tooled and re-launched under the Disney banner via the upcoming Rebels animated series.

Netflix will be airing Clone Wars Season 6  on March 7, 2014 – alongside the entirety of the series (seasons 1 -6) which will be available that same day. Needless to say, if you’ve never gotten on the Clone Wars bandwagon, this might be the prime opportunity.

Clone Wars is a 3D CGI animated series relaunched in 2008, based on a series concept first explored in a 2003 2D animated Clone Wars series, launched under the supervision of animation guru Genndy Tartakovsky (Samurai Jack). The core concept is pretty straightforward: exploring in greater detail the events that occurred in the three-year interim between the rise of the Republic’s clone army (seen in Attack of the Clones) and the Sith-led coup that resulted in the formation of the Galactic Empire (seen in Revenge of the Sith). The series follows characters like Anakin Skywalker, Obi-wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, Yoda, Count Dooku, Ahsoka Tano and others, as they play out the cat-and-mouse game of war and politics that ends in the defeat of the Jedi and the universe being plunged into a period of darkness.

Clone Wars season 6 has been appropriately named “The Lost Missions”; as the gap between Episodes II & III finally comes to a close, it seems that fans are finally going to get the sweetest bits of backstory they’ve been waiting for. In this case, that means all the minute details about the character arcs and step-by-step progressions that led to the events we witnessed in Episode III.

For my part, the most intriguing thing in that trailer is the deeper look at Yoda. In the prequels, the Jedi master always seemed to sense the darkness that was gathering around him, but the films didn’t do much to show how a wise and crafty master like Yoda tried to expose and stop the disaster before it happened. This just adds to some of the other contradictory issues the prequels raised about Yoda’s character (like the need for a “mind over matter” small fry to go ninja with a Lightsaber); I never really “bought” the way that Episode III depicts Yoda as being completely blind-sided by the Sith coup and ends with his profound sadness at that failure. I’ll be much happier to sit through Clone Wars‘ depiction of Yoda making a much more dedicated attempt at adverting the rise of darkness.

Not to mention: some revelation about why that swampy Dagobah System held such retirement appeal for the little green guy.

  1. I hate the fact that its going to be on netflix. Stupid-ass Disney is light-saber blocking it from playing on cartoon network.

    • Why? It makes perfect sense for them not to allow one of their properties to air on a rival network. If anything you should be happy that it’s going to Netflix where you can watch it all in one day instead of dragging it out until next February.

    • haha yeah watch out, we got a cartoon network fanboy … go home fanboy

      • Interesting… I’m not privy to this Cartoon Network/Netflix rivalry.

  2. I want to know more about order 66 and hoping to see the clones we love turning against the jedis. Also i never took interest in yoda’s special mission. I’m would have more interested in mace windu/ki adi mundi, and so on.

  3. No Ashoka Tano in the trailer :(
    S5 ending was kind of a cliffhanger and not the end of her story arc, hope they will get to her in the remaining episodes.

    Hope we will get more Ashoka and Darth Maul.

    • I thought the S5 ending was great. I’d be happy leaving it there.

      The series started with her appearance and ended with her departure. Admittedly I never took to her American Teen Girl character, but there was lots to like in CW.

  4. No Maul?

    • Maul’s fate will be explained in a comic, since the his arc wasn’t animated for season 6.

  5. Nice that all seasons will be on Netflix. I was kind of turned off by the Dathomir/Maul arc and could stand to catch up on what’s happened since.

    Interesting that Yoda is going to Korriban, the Sith planet.

  6. It was stated somewhere (the Episode III novelization maybe?) that Yoda chose Dagobah because it was somewhat remote, and that all the various forms of life on the planet would keep him pretty-well shielded from people trying to sense his whereabouts. Doesn’t look say in Episode V that the sensors can’t make heads or tails of what’s down there?

    • *Luke, not look ~_~

  7. I hope the Star Wars Rebels trailers are that good because that trailer got me excited to get some closure for Clone Wars. Now I have to get Netflix earlier than I wanted to.

  8. Nope nope nope nope nope. I was finished with TCWs along time ago, in fact I was done with it after the horrid movie that launched it. I have my version of the clone wars, it was covered by Dark Horse comics, Del Ray Books, and Genndy Tartovsky, and all the canon messed together.

  9. At least fans will get some closure. Ima gonna add it to my DVD collection.

  10. Dear god, this is fantastic. Closure at last.

    I have to pay Netflix now :(

  11. Looks pretty awesome! Definitely an action-packed final 13 episodes.

  12. Wait, what? Sis seasons and they’re still filling gaps between two of the prequel movies? Thanks god I never watched this. How about something between Sith and Hope? That I’d watch.

    • Star Wars Rebels…

  13. They shld jus t continue to make movies a la DC Animated Features

  14. Guys can anyone tell me what happened to Anakins apprentice? Did she die?

    I missed the last season of this show, thanks guys

    • Yeah,she was killed by Anakin him self as she found out about his darkside and did not join him ! Sad ending for her !

  15. Netflix? really? Hating disney more and more…

  16. The nostalgic goosebumps are back. Finally the clone wars is back. This is going to be awesome. I can’t wait for this! Can now buy a ticket at AMC Theaters.

  17. wait what ? Morgon the Ancient Homeworld of the Sith what happen to Korriban ;o
