Ok, I may have already given away in my thoughts on the Lost Missions in the headline of this article, but seriously, you need to go out and buy the Star Wars: The Clone Wars: The Lost Missions [Blu-ray] through our Amazon link today!

  1. The quality of the visual effects in simply astounding. The Clone Wars Team truly achieved film quality effects on the small screen. Weather it’s Yoda’s visit to the erie planet of Moraband, or the incredible “Evil Yoda” sequence, you see a dedication to cinematic storytelling unlike anything before.

  2. The exclusive “Clone Wars Declassified” documentary that comes with the set is incredibly insightful. It gives an inside look into the final chapter of the creative process for the Clone Wars team. “Clone Wars Declassified” give us a glimpse of just how tight-knit the team at Lucasfilm was as well as how involved George Lucas was in the creative process. It becomes obvious just how much Lucas passed on to Filoni as a filmaker.

I give The Lost Missions 5/5 glasses of blue milk! More info after the jump!
