    That's some pretty good news in that article, seems like there may be more arcs than initially thought, and that arc in the clip with the downed ship in the sandstorm and Lightsaber discovery on board promises to be an intriguing mystery that will perhaps make the whole Sifo-Dyas part of ATOC a bit clearer.

    Loved hearing that piece of the Mustafar score again as well, so atmospheric.

    Filoni always comes over as a cool and likable guy who truly loves Star Wars.

    Yeah, Filoni is a cool dude. I think he did great with CW and should be very proud.

    I'm looking forward to the stuff we didnt get to see. I get the feeling it's gonna be awesome :woot:

    I thought the clip was amazing...the animation, the use of the score from the prequels...it makes me all the more angry at Disney for pulling the plug on this series. They had just reached their stride visually.

    Granted, the show wasn't without its flaws. It struggled with consistency, and when it was bad, it was bad (I'm looking at you, "A Sunny Day In The Void!"). But when it was good, they produced some of the most compelling Star Wars stories since the films.

    Still, I can't wait to watch this Sifo-Dyas/Order 66 arc. Lucasfilm is really pushing this "May The 4th Be With You" thing this year...much moreso than in years past. I think we may get something this Saturday.

    I'm definitely a Filoni guy...he's a true fan of the saga. I'm glad they kept him on staff despite all of the layoffs, and I'm looking forward to whatever this new animated project is that he'll be working on.

    I sure wonder how we are going to get this content, either a dvd/Blu-ray release or on the Season 5 set?

    It would make sense to have a bonus disc on the season 5 set with all of this stuff.

    That's the question, isn't it? DVD/Blu-ray? StarWars.com? ITunes? Hulu? Netflix? Youtube? Special on Disney XD?

    Considering it may be an entire half season, plus the cut Season 5 episodes, I'd bet it'll be a separate release. I just hope it isn't online only. I'd imagine the DVD set would need more than one disk, the Blu could probably get by with one. but I imagine it would also cause the price on Season 5 to raise quite a bit. We'll see I suppose.

    "Bonus content" isn't good enough, Disney. ;)

    The Clone Wars Bonus Content News & Rumors: Ten Episodes According to Kevin Kiner

    The Clone Wars composer Kevin Kiner recently gave an interview with the Full of Sith podcast in which he reveals a bit about the planned Star Wars: The Clone Wars "Bonus Content."

    In the episode titled, "Special Release: Kevin Kiner" released on June 11, 2013 at approximately 20 minutes into the episode, Kiner talked about his work on the bonus content.

    "We have about ten shows that we're still working on, that are going to be part of this special material. And even hopefully there is going to be a soundtrack record as part of this special material. We'll see they're in negotiations about that so we're not positive that's going to happen. "

    Ten episodes means we are likely only getting three story arcs or three story arcs and a stand alone episode. Of course he said "still working on" so it may be even more assuming they aren't working on the Clovis arc which we assume was completed because it was planned to be mid-season five originally.

    The three Clovis arc episodes are "An Old Friend," "The Rise of Clovis," and "Crisis at the Heart." These episodes were 4.19-21 in production order meaning they were produced at the end of the season four batch of episodes. They were originally scheduled to be episodes 6 through 8 of season five.

    This could mean that we are getting the Clovis arc (3 episodes) plus an additional 10 episodes. The Order 66 arc (4 episodes?) and a Sifo-Dyas arc (4 episodes?), and then 2 more unknown episodes. Star Wars Underworld captured a Twitter discussion from TCW writer Matt Michnovetz which seems to confirm that he believes the Order 66 arc and the Sifo-Dyas arc are both 4 episodes in length. It is also important to keep in mind that there are two arcs that we know about that may or may not be getting finished, one of Michnovetz's Bounty Hunter arc and the other is the Yoda arc. The Disney Star Wars Weekends clip of Yoda and Anakin from the bonus content may have been from another arc, not the Yoda arc that has been discussed by TCW cast and crew.

    The other interesting aspect of what Kiner had to say was connecting the soundtrack and the bonus content. Could it be a DVD/Blu-ray plus soundtrack combo pack?

    That sounds very promising, I really hope we get that Yoda arc and the Bounty Hunter's arc on top of the big Sifo Dyas and Order 66 arcs. I can't see why Disney would not release these as it's license to print even more money.

    Well, season 5 dvd news just dropped and no mention of the finished season 6 episodes and so forth, this pisses me off.

    STAR WARS: The Clone Wars Season 5 on Blu-ray

    Breaking news from Star Wars Celebration: Europe. The Clone Wars Season 5 on Blu-ray and DVD will be hitting shelves on October 15, 2013.

    Additionally, there will be a box set containing all 5 seasons.

    There’s still no word on how the Bonus Content (which would have been Season 6) would be released. According to The Star Wars Underworld, Pablo Hidalgo mentioned that they’re still trying to come up with ways to put out as much of it as possible, but no decisions have been made. They’re even considering releasing it with some unfinished animation.

    Watch this space for more information about when the Blu-rays will be available for preorder.

    And here’s a suggestion: We all want the complete collection and the art book and everything, right?

    Why don’t we all preorder Season 5 AND the complete set. Then we should pass our individual boxes off to others so they can love The Clone Wars as much as we do. You don’t even have to give them away if you don’t want, just loan them out. This show deserves to be seen by everyone.

    The complete lack of news regarding the "Lost episodes" is disappointing. I thought at thew very lkeast the Padme/Anakin/Clovis arc would be on the season 5 set. :(
