This will be Cantina-music to the ears of fans of the recently-canned “Star Wars : The Clone Wars” animated series; Netflix has picked up the final season of the “Star Wars” prequel toon, acquiring the sixth and final season for play from 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.

The season follows a rift in the Force caused by Ahsoka Tano’s departure from the Jedi Order and the growing menace of various Sith Lords and apprentices throughout the galaxy. With the future of an entire galaxy hanging in the balance, fans will not only be able to watch the thrilling finale, they’ll be able to see more Clone Wars than ever before as Netflix will also stream the director’s cut of seasons 1 – 5.

”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 U.S. 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.
