Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review. I did some catching up, so there are quite a few this week.

Bombad Radio: Episode 129 has an interview with Star Wars: The Old Republic writer Charles Boyd who talks about what the game designers are working on next giving gamers an idea of what to expect in the way of new content, and what isn’t likely. He also mentions the kind of studies they’ve done to studying player’s behaviors, which was pretty interesting. Very informative episode.

Episode 130 is a Star Wars free-for-all as multiple guests all weigh in on a variety of Star Wars topics. They talk about Mark Hamill and Liam Neeson being in The Clone Wars Season 6, Episode VII news and rumors, and lots more.

Coffee with Kenobi: Rebels Reactions #3 features guest Craig Dickinson as he and the hosts discuss Star Wars Rebels. As can be expected, there’s some insightful commentary on the characters and themes of the show as they cover Kanan, Ezra and Zeb (note this was prior to the reveals of Hera and Sabine). I rather liked the observation regarding the biblical sounding names and it’ll be interesting if the show goes any further into that theme. Nice discussion and worth a listen. Looking forward to hearing them discuss the new female characters as I’m very intrigued by Sabine.

Fangirls Going Rogue: Episode #5 starts out with guest Lisa Granshaw (The Daily Dot) and a Star Wars Rebels discussion which also touches on the controversial male orientation of Disney and Hasbro’s marketing for the show. Afterwards special guest Clare Grant joins them to talk Team Unicorn and lots of other fun Star Wars and geeky topics. Great show, so make sure this one hits your playlist.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond.

Book News

  • Star Wars artist Grant Gould will be illustrating How to Draw Star Wars Rebels. No word on a release date yet.

Comic News

  • Randy Stradley gave an update on Star Wars trade paperback and omnibus collections over on the Dark Horse forums.

The second Dark Times Omnibus is indeed our final scheduled Omnibus. We will produce trades for all of the current series, but there is not enough time within our remaining license to publish Omnibuses. Dark Horse’s goal, obviously, must be to sell as much of our inventory before our final cut-off date.

There may — and I stress may be one more hardcover book before the end of the year. News about that when I have it.

Here is this week’s Around the Web news roundup of Star Wars and beyond. Lots of news this week with Star Wars Rebels, but also a lot of other news in the book realm and elsewhere.

Book News

  • This one falls more under rumor than solid news as it’s a very strange find, but Knights Archive spotted an Amazon listing for an untitled Ballantine Star Wars book with “(Star Wars: Jedi Academy)” in the listing. The hardcover has a November 4, 2014 release date with LucasBooks as the publisher. Placeholder mess up? Re-release of Kevin J. Anderson’s classic trilogy? Or something genuine and new? Who knows, but it’s interesting.
  • Other new listings on Amazon include Star Wars Costumes by Brandon Alinger coming from Chronicle Books in October, and the next book in the Star Wars Art series Star Wars Art: Posters which is also set for October.
  • Kevin Hearne has posted tour dates for his next Iron Druid Chronicles book Shattered.
  • The cover for Jason Fry‘s next book has been revealed – The Jupiter Pirates: Curse of the Iris.

Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6 coming to Netflix

February 13, 2014 at 11:34 am | Posted in News, Star Wars, Star Wars News, Television, The Clone Wars | Leave a comment

StarWars.com has finally announced the details on how fans can catch Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 6, and the answer is Netflix.

Exclusive Licensing Agreement with The Disney/ABC Television Group Brings Star Wars Content to Netflix Streaming Members for the First Time

The Galactic Republic, Disney/ABC Television Group, Lucasfilm, and Netflix Inc. today announced the highly anticipated debut of the sixth and final season of the Emmy(r) Award-winning series Star Wars: The Clone Wars exclusively to Netflix members in the US and Canada on Friday, March 7. Accompanying the 13-episode new season dubbed “The Lost Missions” will be the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars saga, which includes several director’s cut episodes never seen on TV as well as the feature film. This multi-year agreement also makes Netflix the exclusive subscription service for the entire Star Wars: The Clone Wars series.

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.

Stars Wars is one of the most iconic franchises of all time and this series joins a long line of Disney content that Netflix members are and will continue to enjoy for years to come,” said Ted Sarandos, Netflix chief content officer. “The Clone Wars marks an important moment as Netflix welcomes more and more first-run content from The Walt Disney Company and its subsidiaries.”

Star Wars: The Clone Wars is the first time any Star Wars content has been available for Netflix streaming members. The deal follows a recent announcement from Netflix and The Walt Disney Company to 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.

Here is this week’s Podcasts in Review.

Bombad Radio: Episode 124 features an interview with author Richard Lee Byers covering his latest book, The Reaver, which is part of the Forgotten Realms The Sundering series. As with most of Bombad Radio’s interviews, this one is really good. While spoiler free, they still dive into the nature and subject matter of the book, touch on Richard’s career experience in psychology (and how that has helped or not helped his career), and take a look behind the scenes at the creation of The Sundering series.

Episode 122 features an interview with Benton Jew, one of the storyboard artists for The Phantom Menace, and a longtime ILM employee. Benton talks about storyboarding, working with George Lucas and how he differs from other directors, designing Edgar for Men In Black, and creating Jedi Master Oppo Rancis.

Coffee with Kenobi: Episode #12 has a special interview with James Arnold Taylor. While James has been making the rounds on various podcasts, Cory and Dan manage to cover some new topics and angles as they get James to talk about how the events in the The Clone Wars changed Anakin and Obi-Wan’s relationship in the overall story. Fans of Obi-Wan will not want to miss this episode. They also get around to James’ new book, JAT 365 and how that idea came about, before looping back into Star Wars and some intriguing discussion on familiar religious elements and motifs in the films.
