[LINK]Star Wars - The Clone Wars Season 6 "The Lost Missions" to Stream on Netflix

It's really the equivalent of a collectors' box set, dropping all at once to the delight of binge-watchers, who have made Netflix the home of gobbling up your favorite TV series at your own pace. So, after all the worry about how and when they could ever see more the series, fans can now have their very own veritable Clone Wars pie-eating contest to consume "The Lost Missions" all at once, or they can savor them weekly or at any pace they choose.

The exclusive licensing agreement with The Disney/ABC Television Group was said to be "multi-year" by Lucasfilm. The deal is the latest between Netflix and The Walt Disney Company. Previously announced, Netflix will also "bring multiple original series based on Marvel characters to the service in 2015. Netflix will be the exclusive US subscription television service for first-run, live-action, and animated movies from the Walt Disney Studios including titles from Disney, Walt Disney Animation Studios, Pixar Animation Studios, Marvel Studios, Disneynature, and Lucasfilm beginning in 2016. Netflix members can currently enjoy a wide range of Disney, ABC Entertainment Group and Disney Channel films and TV shows across the 41 countries where Netflix operates.", as stated in Lucasfilm's press release.

Also, from the press release were hints about the plots of the episodes,
" In these eagerly anticipated episodes of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, some of the deepest mysteries of the conflict between the light and the dark sides of the Force are revealed. An intrepid clone trooper discovers a shocking secret, Anakin Skywalker's closest relationship is tested to its limits, and what Master Yoda discovers while investigating the disappearance of a Jedi could forever change the balance of power in the galaxy. Fans will not only be able to watch the thrilling finale, they'll be able to see more of Star Wars: The Clone Wars than ever before as Netflix will also stream the director's cut of seasons one to five.

There's been no mention of plans for the new content to hit home video. But for now, at least the stories of Season 6 will find their way to the audience and hopefully put an even better close to the series, which is very well-deserved for the Emmy award winning program.

[LINK]Star Wars Rebels' Third Character Reveal Appears via USA Today

In an exclusive article featuring a Lucasfilm-produced video on its website, USA Today revealed the third character to be unveiled from the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series. He's a jedi by the name of Kanan who is described as a "cowboy jedi" and who is presumably one of the primary characters of the show. As you can see in the video above, Kanan is unlike the Jedi we've seen so far in that he's not clad in monk-like robes and carrying himself with the serious and wizardly demeanor of Alec Guiness' Obi-Wan Kenobi. He's more like Han Solo with a lightsaber, while wielding a blaster in the other hand. He's dressed in casual clothes, with a piece or two of armor on one shoulder. And he's quick-tongued and cutting, an attitude more suited to life aboard his ship, The Ghost, which we've seen in slides revealed at convention panels and online in 2013.

The character also bubbled to the surface last week in the form of a silhouetted LEGO minifigure depicted on the side of the box of the upcoming LEGO set based on The Ghost. That image also furnished the full name, Kanan Jarrus.

It's likely that a full announcement will also appear on the official Star Wars site overnight, so check back here as we'll update with the press release and any further information on Kanan that emerges.

[LINK]Star Wars Rebels Imperial Propoganda Promo Posters

A series of six new promotional posters for the upcoming Star Wars Rebels animated series appeared on twitter and online at a half-dozen websites today. Each of the six was exclusively revealed at six entertainment news sites, while the official Star Wars twitter feed tweeted each out with a link to corresponding articles on each site that was given the exclusive.

A physical copy of the set of posters was part of a press kit sent out to promote the upcoming series to 2500 recipients including media outlets.

Evocative of 20th century communist propaganda poster art, the posters promote enlistment into the Imperial military, presumably to the galaxy at large, and in particular to the people of Lothal, the planet central to the Rebels animated series. The Empire is tightening its grip on Lothal, according to what we've heard about the story from the various convention panels and promotional materials slowly released over the past year. Riding a wave of popular support in the wake of the Clone Wars, the bloom is beginning to come off the rose as the Empire begins to break the backs of planets like Lothal, heavily taxing the people and fully exploiting the planet's natural and commercial resources in its tremendous military buildup. And as Princess Leia said to Grand Moff Tarkin in "A New Hope", the more they tighten their grip, the more star systems will slip through their fingers. The seeds of dissension and yes, even rebellion are taking root on Lothal. And it's sure to be an exciting new era for Star Wars fans once we see it all unfold, starting on the Disney channel this fall, with a one hour special. And then the series premiers on Disney XD.

In the meantime, check out our gallery of high-res images of the posters below and check back here at Row M for all things Rebels now that the series is fast approaching.
