Did you ever want to watch the animated Clone Wars but weren’t sure where to start? Star Wars: The Clone Wars will arrive on Netflix starting on Friday, March 7, including thirteen never-before-seen episodes, known as “The Lost Missions.” With the Star Wars: Rebels animated series arriving later in 2014 and JJ Abrams’ Star Wars: Episode VII coming up in 2015, fans might want to see Dave Filoni’s work as supervising director on The Clone Wars.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars is far from perfect, with some stilted dialogue, goofy characters, and a tendency to stretch thin stories out into multi-episode arcs. With 13 Lost Mission episodes added to those first five seasons (plus the movie that started it all), the show can be daunting for a newcomer, especially for those who prefer the Original Trilogy or the 2003-2005 Clone Wars miniseries directed by Samurai Jack's Genndy Tartakovsky.
