a great fifth season
on 18 June 2016
This is the fifth (and final main) season of "Star Wars: Clone Wars" on Blu-ray. It consists of 2 discs and presents 20 episodes that were originally aired in 2012-13. The series tells the story of what happens between the live-action Star Wars films "Attack of the Clones" and "Revenge of the Sith" - as the Republic battles against the Separatists in an effort to restore peace to the divided galaxy. This is a CGI animated series, intended for both children and adults. The audio and picture quality are superb - and I fully recommend watching this show in HD.
Many of the main characters from the films appear in the show - such as Obi-Wan Kenobi, Mace Windu, Padmé Amidala, Count Dooku, General Grievous, and Yoda. Throughout, the adventure focuses on action - on battles between the opposing sides, and specifically on conflicts between the clone troopers and the droid armies. For the most part, the story concerns Anakin Skywalker and his young apprentice Ahsoka Tano engaged in missions to defend both the Jedi Order and the Republic. Much of this fifth season revolves around Ahsoka, for whom 3 four-part story-arcs are dedicated. The rest of the season explores the Separatists gaining more ground ... and the story of Darth Maul concludes in spectacular fashion. Overall, the animation works brilliantly, and the voice-acting is excellent. It's a highly entertaining show - and a lot of fun.
The episodes included are: "Revival"; "A War on Two Fronts"; "Front Runners"; "The Soft War"; "Tipping Points"; "The Gathering"; "A Test of Strength"; "Bound for Rescue"; "A Necessary Bond"; "Secret Weapons"; "A Sunny Day in the Void"; "Missing in Action"; "Point of No Return"; "Eminence"; "Shades of Reason"; "The Lawless"; "Sabotage"; "The Jedi Who Knew Too Much"; "To Catch a Jedi"; and "The Wrong Jedi".
