Review: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five


In its Emmy® award 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.

Executive Producer George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation present Star WarsThe Clone Wars The Complete Season Five, coming to high-definition Blu-ray Disc and DVD on October 14th. With action and drama worthy of the big screen, The Clone Wars looks and sounds best when presented in stunning high-definition. The Complete Season Five 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.

What we thought of it

I have to admit that I am not a fan of Star Wars – The Clone Wars (any of them). I am unfamiliar with the characters too and the story line.

My husband and son though, enjoy watching it.
They have told me that the first episode is about Maul building an army to take over the Jedi and then graduates into them helping another planet. From there we go on to a story where the younglings decide to go on a mission to take over a separatist ship and then we come back to Maul – the original story. Here is where the action is – there are some excellent light sabre duels and it ends with a twist in the fate of one of the characters.

The fight between heroes and villains, light sabres with all the accompanying sounds and the Star Wars characters can only make for an exciting view.
My son and husband enjoyed watching Series 5 and there are 20 episodes to watch. They figure there were some not so exciting parts but all in all were quite happy with the series.
