The Clone Wars’ second DVD will be titled “Clone Commandos” and include the episodes “Rookies,” “Storm Over Ryloth,” “Innocents of Ryloth,” and “Liberty of Ryloth,” according to DVDActive. (They also give a release date of September 15.)
The Ryloth trilogy seems an odd choice considering they were among S1’s last aired episodes, but TFN’s reasoning seems sound enough.
Several reviewers have summed up their opinions after seeing a whole season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. IGN gives it a 7.7 out of 10, saying “it has a ton of great action and adventure, is increasingly great to look at, and has had some surprisingly effective character moments.”, calling out ‘Rookies’, ‘Cloak of Darkness’ and ‘Trespass’ among their favorite episodes. Ki-Aaaron-Mundi blogs about the impressive first season on his sw.com blog, pointing out the good, the bad, and the ugly. Lazypadawan highlights the sophistication of the writing, and the great new characters.
And so the first season of The Clone Wars ended on Friday with a ‘Hostage Crisis’. Dave Filoni talks about bounty hunters in the episode commentary, and Bonnie interviews Corey Burton, who voices Cad Bane, Count Dooku and Ziro the Hutt. And don’t forget about the S2 preview!
Looks like we might be getting a nice long break from The Clone Wars: A schedule snapped at Toy Fair shows that the second season of the show (and a box set of the S1 DVDs) are on track for the fourth quarter of 2009. That means we likely won’t see them until October at the earliest.
We can also expect another video game (??) in September.
Well, looks like TFN’s rumor was on the money: There is a Clone Wars DVD coming out on March 24th – the first four episodes. I was poking around Borders last week, and it seems that this is a common format for kid’s TV, with a full collection released later. Sure enough, TOS does say that a full season boxed set is coming later in the year.
