May the 4th Be With You!
The Clone Wars season five trailer is available now at starwars.com.
With the emphasis put on the bad guys, it will be interesting to see
what dark path the series walks this season. I'm also pretty pleased
with the Mandalorians' dialogue, which is great since the Death Watch
have been pretty much a nonentity to me so far. There's a nice parallel
too between the Mandos and the Sith brothers. They're again put in the
spotlight, and we do get confirmation that Maul wears a shirt
for...well, at least part of this season.
full version of this teaser trailer will be revealed at Disney Star
Wars Weekends. I'm hoping it will add the Jedi in - as members of an
ancient order they fit the established format perfectly, and it's very
cool to think of the season as a clash of ideologies. Just adding the
word "ancient" into dialogue doesn't make a faction feel real all by
itself, but it helps.
