A new trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season 5 was released this weekend from the Star Wars Celebration VI, which is in Orlando, FL! This new trailer, the longest so far released, (and rumored to be the final one before the new season starts) is a good 3 minutes long, and includes much more of the footage in the new season then previous trailers. Director Dave Filoni said this:
“The first season 5 trailer we released back in June was about the most limited version possible of what you could see, It didn’t have any of the good stuff in it, because there’s so little that we could show that wasn’t going to give our secrets away. So for this new trailer I said to our editor Kevin Yost, ‘I’m giving you all of the footage, and the only thing you can’t show or talk about is this one thing. But everything else, put it in, and I’ll tell you if you went too far.’ Except for one thing, everything was fair game.”
After watching this new trailer, it’s clear that everything WAS fair game. We see Maul, asking the Death Watch to join him, Darth Sidious shocking someone with force-lightning, and Ahsoka being in peril several times!
“These are the most thought-provoking episodes we’ve done, for sure,”-Dave Filoni
The new season is set to debut on Cartoon Network on Saturday Sept. 29 in its new 9:30 a.m. timeslot. (What do you think about this time change? I guess it’ll make for more viewers!)
And will there be stuff in it for us obsessed, er, I mean, LOYAL fans? “Yes,” Filoni says, “Season 5, more than any other we’ve produced, is geared to the loyal viewer.”
