The sixth and final season of the animated sci-fi series will debut on the streaming service March 7.
"Star Wars: The Clone Wars" has found a new home on Netflix. The company has acquired rights to all seasons of the CGI animated television series, including the unaired sixth and final season.
Thirteen episodes of the sixth season as well as the previous five seasons will be available on the streaming service starting March 7. As part of the deal, Netflix also lands director's cuts of seasons 1 through 5 and the 2008 feature film.
" '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," says Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer.
According to the official description, in the final season titled "The Lost Missions", "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."
Lucasfilm shut down the production on "Star Wars: The Clone Wars", whose first five seasons aired on Cartoon Network, following the studio's announcement to make a new "Star Wars" movie trilogy, with the first installment "Star Wars Episode 7" being slated to arrive in 2015.
Disney and Lucasfilm later announced a new animated series titled "Star Wars Rebels", which takes place between the events of "Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith" and "Star Wars: Episode IV - A New Hope". It will premiere as a one-hour special on Disney Channel in fall 2014 before airing as a full-fledged TV series on Disney XD.
