The Clone Wars Season 5 Coming To Blu-ray October 15

Clone Wars Season 5 Blu-rayAnnounced officially at Star Wars Celebration Europe II, Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5 and a Collector’s Edition Season 1-5 boxed set will be coming to Blu-ray on October 15th.

Two Season 5 episodes will be released as director’s cuts. Although no details were given regarding which two episodes were chosen for director’s cut treatment, we believe that one of them will be “Eminence.” Back when it aired, Lucasfilm released this photo showing the beheaded bodies of members of Black Sun which was cut from the original airing on Cartoon Network:

Sadly, it appears that neither the Season 5 Blu-ray nor the Season 1-5 Collector’s Edition will contain any of the Bonus Content.

Just announced at Star Wars Celebration Europe: the Star Wars: The Clone Wars box sets you’re looking for.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Complete Season Five, the final season of the hit series, will release on October 15, 2013, on Blu-ray (2-disc, $59.97 MSRP) and DVD (3-disc, $49.98 MSRP). The collection delivers all 20 episodes, two as director’s cuts never seen on TV, and supplements them with a host of behind the scenes bonus materials, cast and crew interviews, and deleted and alternate scenes, revealing the magic behind the making of the cutting-edge series.

In its Emmy-winning fifth season, the gripping Star Wars story moves closer to the grim events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith and several major players face their destinies as the galaxy plunges into darkness. Planets are rocked by revolution, ancient Jedi secrets are explored, and Ahsoka Tano — the spirited Padawan so central to the series — faces a major crisis that will change her forever.

For those wanting to relive every moment of the epic series from the beginning comes the Star Wars: The Clone Wars Seasons 1-5 Collector’s Edition, also releasing on October 15, 2013, on Blu-ray (14-disc, $149.99 MSRP) and DVD (19-disc, $119.98 MSRP). All previous complete season sets have been collected here for the first time. With unique packaging, the Collector’s Edition also includes a brand new 54-page Art of The Clone Wars booklet that showcases concept art from across all five seasons, with many pieces never before published.
