We’ve heard a lot less this year about The Clone Wars going into Season 4 than we have in previous years and, in a lot of ways, I’m glad for it. We’ll be much more surprised by what we see.
Speaking of surprises, in my email this morning I received this trailer and a premiere date for this season. You’d better believe that Big Shiny Robot!s coverage will be better than ever. As we lead up to the season, we have interviews coming with Dave Filoni, Joel Aron, and Dee Bradley Baker. And I’ll be on hand for the Season Premiere event with the cast and crew next month. This is where you’ll find the best coverage of the show anywhere.
Doesn’t this trailer really deliver? That stuff with Anakin might be what I’m looking most forward to. He’s always been my favorite character (even before the prequels) and his fall has always been by far the most fascinating story to me. When they’ve hinted at it on the show, those have always been my favorite moments and I’ve got the chills thinking about how many more we’ll get this season.
From the press release:
