Star Wars: The Clone Wars
EW has debuted the first trailer for the upcoming fifth season of "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" which begins airing from this September. Supervising director Dave Filoni says "There’s a lot of payoff coming. I think people are going to see ways 'The Clone Wars' ties together more and more with 'A New Hope.' We’re setting up elements that eventually become the Empire."
