Our friends over at Rebel Force Radio have gotten some early info as to when we can expect the release of The Clone Wars season 5 Blu-Ray and DVD set, as well as what special features we can look forward to. Via the Rebel Force Radio Facebook page, they are hearing that season 5 will be released on October 15th, 2013 on Blu-Ray and DVD. The cover will feature Obi-Wan in his red Mandalorian Death Watch armor, and will include such special features as video commentaries on every episode that will be about 3-6 minutes in length, as well as the Blu-Ray having the same Jedi Temple Archives special feature that previous seasons have had. They are also hearing that a special Collectors Edition box set that will include all 5 seasons of The Clone Wars will be released on the same day as well.
The only bad news about this information is that Rebel Force Radio has also learned that the “Bonus Content” episodes are not planned to be included in the Season 5 Set, and no word if it will be included in the Collectors Edition set either. They are expecting this information to be officially announced on Friday July 26th, which is also when Celebration Europe begins, so we’ll be sure to bring you all the latest information on The Clone Wars season 5 Blu-Ray and DVD release as they get announced, as well as any other announcements that are made at Celebration Europe!
