Executive Producer George Lucas and Lucasfilm Animation present Star Wars: The Clone Wars The Complete Season Four. The battle to save the galaxy reaches new heights of peril and new depths of darkness. The valiant Jedi Knights and clone troopers defend exotic planets from enemy forces.

Season Four culminates with the shocking return of a villain from the past: the ruthless Darth Maul, who will stop at nothing to achieve vengeance. The epic action, timeless characters, and sense-shattering sights and sounds of Star Wars surge on in Star Wars: The Clone Wars The Complete Season Four.

More Clone Wars fun Clone Wars in season 4 continued to impress. This season was filled with several multi-episode story arcs. I found the first half of the season generally disappointing. The Mon Calamari arc didn’t do any favors to Admiral Ackbar’s character. The Umbaran battle arc has impressive visuals, but dragged on a bit long. I generally found the slaver’s arc to be uninspired, with too many silly stereotypes (including an entire race of slaver’s with Russian accents).The second half of the season really picked up the pace with Obi-Wan Kenobi’s undercover arc. I loved seeing more of the bounty hunters, especially Cad Bane! There were some great moments foreshadowing Anakin Skywalker’s downfall. Then, of course, the finale, with Asajj become a freelance agent, Boba Fett getting a helmet, and Darth Maul!Overall, this season definitely showed that the animators have the technical capability to do just about anything on the show. The second half of the season showed that the producers are willing to take the story into really dark and interesting places. I can’t wait for season 5.

Blu-ray Review: “Star Wars: The Clone Wars – the Complete Season Four” “Star Wars” fans are a fickle bunch. Some choose to believe only the original trilogy is to be taken seriously. Others are willing to accept all six of the films in the live-action series and that’s all. I belong to the last group I’m about to talk about.The faction I belong to will devour anything Lucas and company delivers in regards to a “Galaxy Far, Far Away.” We’re happy to get anything that expands the universe we love so much. Individuals who fall into this category but don’t have the luxury of cable, satellite television, or high speed internet connections can now celebrate in the news that Lucasfilm and Warner Bros. released “Star Wars: The Clone Wars – The Complete Season Four” on Bu-ray and DVD.Season Four of the show features the Jedi and Clone troopers continuing their tireless campaign to help different alien species fight for freedom against Battle Droids, Sith lords, and other deadly forces on strange worlds. Things get more complicated when a sinister enemy from the past returns to seek vengeance against Obi-Wan Kenobi. Darth Maul recruits the brutal Savage Opress in a scheme to kill the Jedi Knight for the wounds he inflicted on the Sith apprentice.”Star Wars: The Clone Wars” was meant to be seen in high-definition and this delivers just that. Every vibrant color scheme on every exotic planet the Jedi and Clone troopers journey to in their battle with the evil Empire are amplified.

It’s amazing how beautifully textured the landscapes and exteriors and interiors of the spaceships look. The animators and creative team really have moved forward light years since the beginning of the series in 2008.A 5.1 surround sound mix ensures that no home theater audiences will miss a single buzzing lightsaber, blasting laser rifle, or speeding starship that crosses the television screen. Kevin Kiner’s musical score adds an emotional depth to each episode. It takes the familiar pieces of John Williams’ original compositions and expands on them to give the series its own unique atmosphere. The dialogue blends well within the framework of the sound effects and soundtrack as well.Bonus material for the set includes five video commentaries with the director, cast, and crew of the show.
