Here's Where You Can Stream Or Buy Every Season Of The Clone Wars

When "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" began its run on Cartoon Network in 2008, I don't think anyone could've predicted what the series would come to mean to both the lore and the fans. By the end of its seven season run, the animated show had not only enriched and revived a love for the prequel films, but also expanded the "Star Wars" universe in exciting and meaningful ways by enhancing the arcs of central characters like Anakin Skywalker and Obi-Wan Kenobi and introducing original additions like Ahsoka Tano or Bo-Katan Kryze (both of whom have now made breakthrough appearances in the live-action "The Mandalorian").

In many ways, "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" helped shape the future of the franchise, offering an exemplary model of how to grow narratives entwined with but also independent of the existing trilogies. With season two of "The Mandalorian" drawing from characters first introduced in the animated series and "The Bad Batch" signaling a continued reliance on animated series to fill the gaps between movies, now is the perfect time to catch up on this award-winning series. But where can you stream/buy it?

Where You Can Stream The Clone Wars

All seven seasons of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" are available to stream on Disney+ in the United States. Apart from Disney's streaming service, there's really only one other way to stream the series, and that's buying specific seasons in their entirety on Amazon. This might make it difficult to watch if you were planning on viewing each episode of "The Clone Wars" in chronological order or wanting to binge multiple seasons.

But once you've managed to start streaming, you can settle in to watch what's become a seminal collection of stories within the Star Wars universe. If it's your first time watching the series, you should buckle in for a tumultuous and emotional ride. Meanwhile, those who've already rewatched it multiple times and are just looking to dive back in should check out our ranking of the 20 best episodes from the series.

Where You Can Buy The Clone Wars

If you were hoping to bypass streaming services to watch "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" on physical media, you might be in for some disappointment. The only retailer that really has any of the seasons available on DVD or Blu-ray is Amazon at the moment. Prices vary, but box sets of seasons 1-5 in the series are available on Blu-ray for $249. You can also purchase individual seasons for around $30-$40.

If you were hoping to walk into a Walmart, Target, or even Best Buy to pick up a physical copy of the series, you have some searching ahead of you. As of this writing, none of those retailers carry either a box set or individual seasons — with the exception of season 6, "The Lost Missions," which can be found at Target and Best Buy for $13.99 or $17.99, depending on the format.
