Although I'm sad it's over, this was a great ending to a great series.
Made to be seen in High-Definition, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions” looks pristine in a Blu-ray format. It’s presented in 1080p HD with a 2.35:1 aspect ratio. Every colorful alien world visited looks pristine and striking in its own right.
The 5.1 Dolby Digital audio delivers the surround sound experience you would expect from a “Star Wars” feature film. Explosions come from behind and in front of you in a home theater setting. All the planets and life forms our heroes encounter in their journeys have unique qualities which are well presented and enveloped in a dramatic and effective musical score.
Although they may not look like much, “Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions” has it where it counts when it comes to bonus material. A 16-minute never-before-seen documentary takes us behind the scenes of the entire series. Four unfinished story reels are included as well. It’s interesting to see what series runner Dave Filoni would take to George Lucas for approval before fully realizing the different episodes.
There are moments and characters in “Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Lost Missions” that will no doubt frighten younger viewers. The Night Sisters and their voices come to mind. The only other thing I can think of is the sci-fi violence, which is mainly made up of lightsaber and laser gun battles.Read more ›
Katie Lucas makes her glorious return in the first arc, which I consider to be the best of the season. It's a very personal and exhilarating story about one of the characters without a set future (a common tension killer in show that serves as a prequel) which keeps the tension and the stakes high.
The Clovis arc is a holdover from Season Five but fits just as well here. It's really fascinating to take a look at Anakin and Padme's relationship in a more intricate way than we've seen in the past.
The Jar Jar arc is a lot of fun (once you get past the Gungan-speak) and contains some of the most beautiful animation in the entire series. The Bardottan culture is definitely one to remember and the duology will remind you why you want to read Darth Maul: Son of Dathomir afterwards (NO Maul appearance; just watch).
The Syfo-Dias arc that concludes this half-season of episodes is heralded as the best of the series. I still believe the opening arc of this season and the Ahsoka arc that closed out the show's run on Cartoon Network have this one beat but this arc is in no way overrated. It answers questions about the saga, overall, and a contains quite a few excellent, chill-inducing moments.
It may only be half as long as the other seasons but the stories are still fantastic additions. The fact that Disney was willing to spare some of their newly acquired MVPs to stay and work on these last several arcs truly is a testament to their dedication to the fans and their intention to keep making great Star Wars. So check this out and continue right on to Star Wars Rebels!
(I will update this review once I have seen the story reels for the unfinished arc in the special features.)
After seeing a few shows of the new "Rebels", I must say, visually I'm left wanting better. So when I put the 1st disk in the player of "The Lost Missions" I was blown away at the beauty of the image. Visually... WOW! The color, the texture, the depth. This series was made for BlueRay! & I really hope "Rebels" up's their game & soon. I'm so very happy that I added this to the collection.

Basically Season 6, and lived up to the Star Wars billing. I wish it hadn't have been cut short. I want to kick Disney in "rocks" for telling Dave "no."Published 25 days ago by casey
