Not that it should, but I hope none of this affects the blu-ray release of season five.

Since now I'm so close to having the whole series.

Detours just doesn't interest me that much to be frank. Seth Green and his coterie of writers and performers can sometimes strike comedy gold and have made many hilarious episodes of Robot Chicken over the years, but Detours doesn't strike me as a project that would be terribly entertaining or successful based on what we've heard thus far. I don't know if the concept of a weekly or recurring animated comedy series set in the SW universe would have the legs to remain viable for very long.

It sounds like an idea that would be better served as a Web series or downloadable content, but I guess only time will tell if this idea will ever fly.
Agreed.... I'd also like to add that there is a serious saturation of sci-fi parodies and 'clever send-ups' and cosmic knee slapping buffoonery everywhere you look... why they ever though they needed to do an official spoof series is utterly lost on me. I was satisfied with Spaceballs and haven't seen anything since that was funnier.

Yes, however The Clone Wars "ends" I'd like to have it on my shelf, too. Here's hoping it doesn't go "exclusive downloads-only."

We're going to get a conclusion to the series; it just won't be in the form of a weekly aired cartoon.
I adored the format most of all.

Movies are too long. 22.5 minutes was perfect for a lunch break, before bed, etc. I wonder why people even bother trying to make television shows anymore, they never seem to satisfy the bean counters. Even if a television series is wildly successful they can't wait to get it off broadcast and into a theatre.

I don't actually think Star Trek will ever make it back to the small screen.

The video below from Filoni shows a fully animated and voiced clip, so obviously at least some of them will be in the same type of animation as the series proper. If it's not moving to Disney XD, then I wouldn't be surprised if it was done as either web series or direct to video/download type thing.
I'm really curious what new era the new series will be set in. Someone up thread mentioned the era between ROTJ and VII, and that does seem like the most likely setting to me. That or between the first two trilogies or pre-Prequels.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

It seems like there is quite a lot of completed, but unaired episodes. This claims that much of season 6 was completed back in November.

Though a source inside Lucasfilm suggests that the long-term fate of the series is still up in the air—no hard end date has been set, that’s for certain--supervising director Dave Filoni recently confirmed to me that much of the sixth season is already completed.

That's what I figured. Given the looooooong production cycle of this show, when they say it's canceled today they've already been producing an entire season of unaired episodes before this.

Most likely scenario: They'll stitch the completed episodes into four or five TV-movies that'll air on Disney XD over the next year, then cut it back up into its' original format (including any stories too short to fit into the TV-movies) and release it as the "Complete Season Six" on Blu-Ray the following year just in time for the release of Episode VII.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Oh, Disney slapping any leftover, unaired episodes on DVD and BluRay and selling them in every big box store in the nation is a guarantee. Even if they don't air them online or on Disney XD first they'll cobble together some Collector's Series multidisc set and have it on sale by the end of the year or the beginning of 2014.

It's possible they could just show the 6th season as originally planned, just on DXD instead of CN. This could be the kind of cancellation announcement that's not "We're pulling it off the air now" but instead "We've decided that its next season will be its last" -- like with Eureka, say.

They're being really coy if they are just simply planning to air on Disney XD. I mean it's possible but given that it's been seen as a foregone conclusion until recently I'd wonder why all the smoke and mirrors.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

I wonder how smart a move airing new episodes on XD will be though. The last time I heard XD was available in considerably fewer homes than Cartoon Network and as a result I can't imagine the ratings for some sort of Clone Wars mini-run on this channel being on par with what the series was getting when it still aired in prime time on CN, a much more established cable network with a very strong and determined following both before the Adult Swim programming bloc as well as earlier in the day.

But hey, whatever they want to do....it's not like the fans have any say in what will happen anyways. I just think it's a little odd that the producers have been lamenting the declining ratings on CN and there's at least some possibility that the final episodes of the story will air on a channel that gets even smaller numbers.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

Well as we've discussed many times before, it shouldn't come as a surprised that most of season six is completed since Filoni has stated that they usually work on the next season while the current season is still in production. They would have most likely already completed the majority...if not all of season six by now. I'm still thinking that we will see it on Disney XD. I didn't think it would last beyond another season anyway.

I didn't say they'd already decided and were trying to deceive us for some reason; I just said it might be a possibility. It sounds like they're considering a variety of options and haven't decided which one is best yet. All I'm saying is that moving the series to DXD is one of the options they may be considering.

Unless it's deemed to be too violent for Disney XD.

Re: Star Wars The Clone Wars Season Five News and Discussion

There were episodes of the series that Cartoon Network considered much too violent and even risque. There's a famous scene from a Season 3(?) episode where Asajj Ventress seductively kisses the severed head of a dead Clone Trooper and the network edited it out of the episode.

If Ted Turner's folks won't abide some scenes then you just know the Disney people would be on pins and needles about some scenes and details in a series depicting a violent war between forces of good and evil.
