Sorry once again for the lack of recent updates. I’m hoping to catch up on all the Ackbar news I missed out on posting in the last few months and then start posting more Ackbar stuff on a regular basis once again.
The Clone Wars season 4 (whose first three episodes featured a young Captain Ackbar, which I have discussed on this blog in various places, including here) will be out on DVD and Blu-Ray on 23 October 2012, according to the official Star Wars website announcement here. (The announcement includes a video trailer, which features some clips from the Mon Cala episodes, including an Ackbar line!)
One of the DVD bonus features will be a look at these Mon Cala episodes. Exclusive to the Blu-Ray edition will be a database of concept art, early animation, and extended and deleted scenes. I’m not sure on the details here, but it’s a fair assumption that these Blu-Ray features will probably involve Ackbar somewhere.
I’m not sure if I’m going to buy this, to be honest. It’s not that I don’t enjoy The Clone Wars — I happen to think that, overall, it’s a pretty fun cartoon show, if not in line with the classic Star Wars trilogy I know and love — but I’m not sure if I really need to own the entire fourth season just because its first three episodes had Ackbar in them.
