Hi,

Can anyone tell me if the DVD and Blu Ray versions on the Clone Wars season share the same special features/supplemental material?

Or does the Blu seasons have more extras exclusive to the bluray format?

Any help would be GREATLY appreciated.

The Blu-rays include a "Jedi Temple Archives" section that isn't on the DVD sets. I believe these "Archives" are bonus artwork, designs, test footage, etc. for each of the episodes. I hear they're pretty extensive, if you're into that sort of thing. If not, you probably won't be missing much.

The big dealbreaker for the DVD releases is the 4 unfinished Utapau episodes that are exclusive to the Blu-ray release of The Lost Missions.

Even in their unfinished state they're perfectly watchable and I'd consider any collection of Clone Wars episodes incomplete without them.

If I had invested in the DVD releases and bought the 6th season only to wind up with 131/135 episodes I'd be pretty frustrated.

I stuck with DVD for the whole series. I figured I could watch the unfinished eps online, and now I'm wondering if I should have bothered with them at all since they're on Netflix. I hope the commentaries are worth it, once I finish S6, I'll go back do a rewatch of the extras.

Thanks for the info, guys!

Looks like I will be going blu with this series, though picking them up now or waiting for a possible complete series set is the question now.....

A complete series set is unlikely. Currently there's a set of seasons 1-5 available. It doesn't include the movie or the Lost Missions episodes. The movie is out of print but can still be found for a reasonable price.

The reason its unlikely that a complete-series set will be released is that Warner controls the movie and the TV episodes that aired on Cartoon Network (seasons 1-5) whereas Disney controls The Lost Missions and the Utapau story reels.

The rights to the Warner-controlled stuff could potentially lapse and revert back to Disney/LucasFilm (and this may be why the movie is OOP currently) but for all we know Warner could have the rights locked up tight for years.

Thank you for that information, Guru.

I wasnt aware of that and appreciate the heads up as I could have been waiting around for quite awhile before such a set might ever be released.

I like to think i am patient but I know I am not THAT patient on a maybe at best. Plus I would like to get more familiar with the series before EP 7 anyways.

Thanks again!

One more question, is there any differences with the *collectors edition* of seasons 1-5? Don't really care about packaging or the booklet, but as far as extras/bonus content goes...?
