I’ll be the first to admit, I’ve been a bad Star Wars nerd this year. I haven’t been keeping up with season four of Cartoon Network’s Star Wars: The Clone Wars. I caught the first couple of episodes on the Star Wars website, but started to forget in the myriad of other things that is life.
Well, my day of retribution is at hand, as well as yours if you’re like me. We have a release date for the Blu-ray and DVD release of Season Four, and that date is October 23rd.
If you haven’t been watching this series, you’ve been missing out on some great Star Wars. Originally conceived of and marketed as more of a children’s show, the series has gotten progressively darker and more “adult” as the seasons have gone on, and this season was no exception, taking us from the underwater battlefield of Mon Calamari to the shadowy world of Umbara and giving us many twists and turns, the most shocking of which was the return on the thought to be dead Sith warrior, Darth Maul.
Say’s supervising director Dave Filoni:
“Season Four allowed us to expand the series on many levels and achieve things that once were impossible. It all culminated in the return of one of the most exciting characters from the Star Wars Saga – Darth Maul. To bring a classic character back to life, and know that his future is not yet defined, is really exciting.”
IGN gives us a look at the trailer for the Blu-ray and DVD release. Head on over here to take a look at it as well as a list of the bonus features including numerous commentaries and other features.
And while you’re gearing up for the release of this set, take a look at the trailer for Season Five. Be prepared for goosebumps.
No word of a price point yet, but keep your eyes glued here for the latest news on this upcoming release. Until next time, may the Force be with you. Looks like we’re all going to need it.
