Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ Last 13 Episodes Will Stream on Netflix

It turns out that the final episodes that will wrap up the hit CG animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars will not be airing on any broadcast or cable outlet, nor will it appear via comic book form (contrary to previous rumors). Rather, the last 13 episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars will be streaming on Netflix starting on March 7.

New Star Wars Rebels Video: Meet Kanan, the Cowboy Jedi

It’s true that Order 66, or what has come to be known as the Great Jedi Purge, led to the destruction of the Jedi order and many followers of the light side were lost. However, Master Yoda and Obi Wan Kenobi weren’t the only survivors. A new video for Star Wars Rebels reveals yet another Jedi who survived the purge, and he turns out to be one of the main characters of the upcoming series.

Named Kanan, this Jedi is voiced by Freddie Prinze Jr. and is not the typical force-weilding Jedi that fans are used to seeing. He uses both a blaster and tries to keep his past a secret. “I like to call Kanan ‘the cowboy Jedi,’” says executive producer Dave Filoni.

In Star Wars Rebels, set between Episode III and IV, Kanan has been hiding underground for years, evading the Empire. If the Imperials become aware of his existence “he’s going to get killed,” says art director Kilian Plunkett. He still has his lightsaber, but no longer uses it for fear of revealing his true identity — and has ultimately forsaken the ways of the Jedi Order.

Even Cartoon Network fans have to admit that the network of late has been plagued with cancellations – whether intentional or because of situations that are entirely out of their hands – of shows that are still very popular and rating really well with viewers, leaving fans to wonder exactly how the stories ended (or would have ended). In the case of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, fans no longer have to wonder because Dark Horse Comics will be ending their relationship with the Star Wars franchise on a high note: they are going to give fans one last arc of the Clone Wars, which will also serve as the series finale.

They are the best episodes that my crew has ever committed to screen.”

LucasFilm has just released a couple of teaser clips for the shocking finale to Season 5 of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which airs this Saturday, March 2nd at 9:30am ET/PT on the Cartoon Network.
