Warner Bros has released a new trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars. The trailer has a darker underlying tone, as the Clone wars were no doubt darker times in the Star Wars Galaxy. And I love some of the imagery, like the wide shot of R2, C3PO and Anikan walking with the duel sunset over the desert (seen above), a call back to A New Hope. Tell me what you think in the comments below!

The official plot synopsis reads: Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and PadmÃ© Amidala, are on the front lines of an intergalactic struggle between good and evil, along with brand new heroes like Anakin’s padawan learner, Ahsoka. Sinister villains â€“ led by Palpatine, Count Dooku and General Grievous â€“ are poised to rule the galaxy. Stakes are high, and the fate of the Star Wars universe rests in the hands of the daring Jedi Knights. Their exploits lead to action-packed battles and astonishing new revelations.
You can watch the trailer in High Definition on Yahoo. Star Wars: The Clone Wars will hit theaters on August 15th 2008. The movie leads directly in to this fall’s premiere of a weekly computer-animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series on Cartoon Network.
