Holy cow, have you folks heard?? At Comic Con International, it was announced that after five years, the animated Star Wars series Clone Wars is getting a revival to complete the series after it's cancellation in 2013! That's right, there will be twelve new episodes of Clone Wars, which will supposedly answer a lot of questions fans might have had, such as, "What the heck happened to Ahsoka in those years between Clone Wars and Rebels?
So what's the catch?
Well, if you really want to see the new episodes of Clones Wars, they won't be on Netflix or even Amazon right away. You'll have to subscribe to Disney's new digital subscription streaming service. There also is no specific release date, the series just having been announced as part of the Star Wars: Clone Wars anniversary panel at San Diego Comic Con.
The episodes themselves look interesting, and I'm excited to see them--no one was a bigger Clone Wars fan than me. Can I afford to watch them, though, if I have to subscribe to yet another streaming service? That remains to be seen, and kind of feels like a cheap shot.
