After the cancellation of Star Wars The Clone Wars fans were outraged. There were many cliffhangers that were left unresolved. Following Disney’s acquiring of the franchise there had been many reveals that there were more episodes, possibly to be added to the DVD/Bluray release of the fifth season. But now we’re not so sure as Disney might have other plans for the final episodes. According to Jedinews this new content is going to be exclusively given to Apple and released on through the Apple TV device for a limted time.
“A Disney branded app for Star Wars will launch on Apple TV devices, with plans to distribute the final Clone Wars episodes exclusively digitally only through the Apple TV device for a limited period of time. This will happen in this holiday season.
In 2014, plans are in an early stage to use the platform to deliver SW7 production news ‘live’ from the sets, followed with Star Wars Rebels in late 2014 taking us all the way through to SW7 release.”
“Distribution will only be on Apple TV devices capable of running iOS7 and there has been no confirmation if the same app will be available to other iOS devices such as iPad or iPhone.”
So this holiday season we’ll be expecting to see the final episodes and hopefully a lot of closure to the end of The Clone Wars series. No official date has been placed but keep checking back as more information unfolds.
