The fifth and final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars is coming to DVD and Blu-ray, and here’s the last bit of promo footage we’ll probably ever get to see. But what about those never-released episodes still sitting on the shelf?
Fans had hoped the eventual DVD release (aka this one) would bring all that footage to the masses, but it sounds like we might be out of luck. The release info only mentions the 20 season-five episodes that aired on television, meaning that whatever else we might’ve been wanting probably didn’t make the cut.
There is still the promise of two director’s-cut episodes, plus a “host of behind the scenes bonus materials, cast and crew interviews, and deleted and alternate scenes” on the way. But “alternate” and “deleted” will probably not cover episodes that died in the pipe.
The fifth season, as well as a complete series package, are both scheduled to hit shelves on Oct. 15, 2013. Until then, start reliving all the glorious action with the trailer above and officially say your goodbyes.
Will you miss Clone Wars, or are you looking forward to whatever Disney is cooking up with Rebels?
