I love this show. There can only be 2! AKA the rule of 2.

Palpatine is gonna kick some ass! Also, they've mentioned this season is going to have a twist on the level with Darth Maul's return from last year. Judging from what we see in this trailer, it looks like something big is happening to Ahsoka...

It looks well done, but the hero characters from the prequels just suck so much that I can't drum up any interest to check it out, even so.
RorMachine - 8/30/2012, 12:18 PM
I've watched a few eps now and while it's far from perfect, I can honestly say that it is better than any of the movie prequels.

I can't wait to see Maul vs. Palpatine! I want to see a show like this that takes place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Assuming Ventress survives, I'd love to see her vs. Darth Vader.
Highball - 8/30/2012, 12:23 PM
I'd like to know how they break even financially with a high quality visual aesthetic like that! It's not always very well written, and sometimes some episodes are a little boring... but man does it look good! And season 5 looks even better... I'm impressed.
Highball - 8/30/2012, 12:23 PM
For a tv series cartoon, that is... Impressive... most impressive :P
DCwanabe - 8/30/2012, 12:31 PM
love this show its not perfect but its always improving. Palpatine vs maul will be awesome.
jokerharleylove - 8/30/2012, 12:35 PM
I'm so happy Ventress is back, and she looks more deadly than ever!
Morbius - 8/30/2012, 12:36 PM
WOW JUST WOW!!!!!! Cant wait!!!!!!!

@RorMachine

Agreed. I want them to remake revenge of the sith but do it clone wars style.

How much of the show have you seen? There are some hit and miss episodes but by the latter half of season three things really start picking up more.
pesmerga44 - 8/30/2012, 1:01 PM
Overall this looks good I do like that it seems the stakes are getting higher and higher. It also seems this will finally be the last season of the show which it should start to come to an end. A couple of things I picked up from this trailer.

1. Was that Boss from Republic Commando in there that is awesome that game was great.

2. I do not like that Palpatine went to personally take on Maul and he is now duel wielding lightsabers. If you remember from ep.6 Return of the Jedi he shows disdain calling it a "Jedi weapon" he seems to think as lightsabers beneath him.
DarkArts - 8/30/2012, 1:18 PM
The fact that Palpatine would bravely go attack Maul and his brother doesnt fit too well with what we have seen of him in the prequels.
The Palpatine in the Prequels would hide back and conspire to have someone else take them on.
Some of the scenes look good but after some of the stupidity from Season 4, such as the Force Planet, with glowing rocks that are the force and how it looked like it was ripped from some Japanese Fantasy video game, its kinda hard for me to care.

@Gambit89 - To Kiddy, dude this is a show on the CARTOON Network, during the day sooooo. Hey I love this show and I'm 44 years old, guess I'm to kiddy to, yay!
PaulRom - 8/30/2012, 2:15 PM
@Grif: Yeah, I think Lucas said that he'd like to make 100 episodes (which would be about 5 seasons).

I've seen a few episodes. Not bad, definitely better than a lot of what the prequels offered. Looks like I'll have to catch up, since season five looks awesome.
MJPETTY7 - 8/30/2012, 2:19 PM
I don't watch this show, out of respect and love for the original Clone Wars series, but I must say, after watching this trailer, I almost want to...
Koala0226 - 8/30/2012, 2:23 PM
LOL what's yoda doin at a strip club?...
SHO1138 - 8/30/2012, 2:26 PM
I'm so behind on this. I'm on season 3 which I haven't even started yet. Need a good blizzard this year to get in marathon mode.
tonytony - 8/30/2012, 2:29 PM
this show is awesome. Season 2 onwards has been incredible and i look forward to this next season.
JoeMomma29 - 8/30/2012, 2:35 PM
Nice! I am a big fan of this show, I cannot wait.
Mystekl - 8/30/2012, 2:39 PM
An ARC Trooper! (or Clone Commando). So great to see them outside of Karen Traviss' awesome novels! I will watch this season just based on that fact alone.
ronnie42 - 8/30/2012, 2:43 PM
Looks good, maybe they might show after the clones wars next, show parts between the movies, after the films.
TheDpool - 8/30/2012, 2:53 PM
I know it wont happen but how cool would it be if after this series finishes they bring out a special episode based on Obi Wans Exile like taking place straight after giving Luke to Owen and Beru
PeterParker1991 - 8/30/2012, 3:43 PM
^yes. - - I''m sold. Sidious vs Maul and Dooku, bad-ass Anakin... Bring it!!!!!
MrCameron - 8/30/2012, 4:27 PM
I think that the Palpatine fighting Darth Maul might be a clone.
DarthTesla - 8/30/2012, 5:34 PM
YEAH BUDDY! Gonna be the best season yet.
Bread - 8/30/2012, 6:25 PM
As long as they stay away from the original trilogy I'll be fine
IIIAdamantiumIII - 8/30/2012, 6:59 PM
hate the style , but the show has grown on me. To bad the prequels were never as good as the stories told in these animated shows like the cartoon network one WAS EPIC!
HeadPool420 - 8/30/2012, 10:20 PM
Every season of this show gets better and better. hopefully after this show is done we will get a classic trilogy series.
DravinClaw - 8/30/2012, 11:56 PM
I don't know about the rest of you but since he tied up everything between episode 2 and 3 with first 2 batch of clone wars cartoons (the ones that came out before episode 3 and was mentioned in the crawl) why expand on something that didnt need to be I would have been more happy to see a series that showed the events from after Jedi. oh and George my son who is your "target audience" gave up on the show 2 episodes into season 1 just thought you should know.
GrayMatter - 8/31/2012, 1:03 AM
I kinda fell off the wagon part way through season 3. Season 1 was meh, and Season 2 wasn't very good, in my opinion. Season 3 was better, but I'd kinda felt like I'd already invested too much time into it.

I just recently got back into it, and now I'm nearly done season 4, and it has been, by far, the best of the series. Seriously, do yourself a favour and watch Season 4. Outside of one lame episode near the beginning, it has been freakin' awesome.
CoulsonLives - 8/31/2012, 2:15 AM
This show has got to be the best Star Wars TV show ever...
BOBA FETT FTW
