Warner Bros has released the official trailer for Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which is attached to prints of Speed Racer. I’m actually kinda impressed at the animation, considering this is just a lead up to a television animated series. And I love the stylized looks of some of the classic characters like Jabba The Hutt (as seen above), although the big epic action sequences seem a bit clunky. I’m also quite impressed that some of the original stars like Samuel L Jackson came back to do voice work. What do you guys think? Comment 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.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars will hit theaters on August 15th 2008. The movie eads directly in to this fall’s premiere of a weekly computer-animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series on Cartoon Network.
