The extended trailer for “The Clone Wars” season four was released this week and it looks like they’re continuing to show signs of Anakin’s turn to the dark side. By its very existence, this show makes “Revenge of the Sith” a better movie, and showing Anakin’s internal struggle throughout the series makes his turn to the dark side that much more believable (and even emotional).

It also stood out to me that there’s a lot more Threepio and Artoo in this trailer. Thank you! They’ve been chronically under-used in Anakin, Ashoka and Obi-Wan episodes and their inclusion just makes it feel like much more of a genuine Star Wars experience. Am I right?

Here it is:

Cooooool. And yes, that was the future Admiral Ackbar! That little tidbit was confirmed earlier this year at the San Diego Comic Con, and in case you missed it, this teaser clip was also shown at SDCC this year:

“The Clone Wars” will premiere on Friday, Sept. 16 on Cartoon Network. Need to catch up? The pretty-damn-good first two seasons are available on blu-ray and DVD and you can pre-order the superb third season now.
