Star Wars Rebels fans angry at digital release switch-up

swr-s2-concord-dawn

Some Star Wars Rebels fans are less than impressed with Disney/Lucasfilm right now. Last week, fans who have been purchasing the show digitally found that ‘The Protector of Concord Dawn’ wasn’t included as part of their season pass for the cartoon’s second season. Instead, it’s part of a third volume – requiring a second ‘season’ pass.

Some initially thought it could be a mistake, but Lucasfilm (via Full of Sith) says it’s a deliberate choice:

Because Season 2 of Star Wars Rebels contains seven episodes more than Season 1 (20 versus 13), it has been broken down into lower priced volumes to make it more accessible. Unfortunately, this was not made clear for those buying a “season pass.” We regret the confusion and are happy to report that, in response, iTunes, Amazon and Google Play have reduced the price for the second half of Season 2 to $19.99.

Jason Ward at Making Star Wars is also among those decrying the “bait and switch.” Fans are angry, flooding ‘Volume 3’ on Amazon and iTunes with angry reviews and one-star ratings.

  1. Each fraction is priced at the same cost as the full first season. Initially, they were priced at fifteen dollars more than the first season. Each.
    They said it was the season pass for the complete season 2. So yeah, people should be mad.
