Blu-ray Review - Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions

Arriving on Blu-ray from executive-producer George Lucas is the exciting conclusion to the Emmy Award-Winning series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, titled Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions, which features all 13 episodes from the final season. Bonus Features include Never-Before-Seen - 16-Minute Documentary Celebrating The Entire "Clone Wars" Series With Riveting Behind-The-Scenes Footage and 4 Additional Unfinished Story Reels.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is set between Star Wars - Episode II: Attack of the Clones and Star Wars - Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. A feature film was released in October 2008 and quickly followed by the debut of the television series which aired on the Cartoon Network until the end of the fifth season. The Walt Disney company bought Lucasfilms in 2012 and officially canceled the series in 2013, but 13 episodes were still in development at the time. These episodes aired exclusively on Netflix in early 2014 and is known as "The Lost Missions," which lands on Blu-ray and DVD this week. "The Lost Missions" sets up the event that will occur in "Revenge of the Sith."

The 13 episodes on the 2 disc set are:

The Unknown
An Old Friend
The Rise of Clovis
Crisis at the Heart
The Disappeared, Part I
The Disappeared, Part 2
The Lost One

While I have seen the classic trilogy and the misguided prequel trilogy, I have only seen a handful of episodes of "The Clone Wars," which I accidentally ran across a few episodes while channel surfing a few years back. With Star Wars - Episode VII: The Force Awakens being released next year, I became interested in reviewing Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions. Compared to other CGI cartoons on television,  the animation for "The Lost Missions" is top-notch. The series is made for adult Star Wars fans in my opinion, as the war plot is a  little dark for kids. My favorite episodes from "The Lost Missions" are the first five episodes with ARC Trooper Fives investigating what went wrong with Clone Trooper Tup. Overall, the episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions are well written, produced and have an outstanding voice cast. I enjoyed watching the Blu-ray and I recommend it to others. It would make a great gift for any Star Wars fan.
