This probably won't be around for too long, as we believe this trailer wasn't supposed to hit until early May. So, um, watch it. NOW! Above, you can see what appears to be the first trailer for the next saga in the Star Wars universe: Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Now the way this will work is a theatrical film will first arrive in theaters on August 15, then the television series will begin with episodes airing on Cartoon Network and TNT. Star Wars: The Clone Wars takes place between Episodes II and III, and features most of the main characters from the last trilogy: Anakin, Obi-Wan, R2D2, C3PO, Padme Amidala, Count Dooku and Palpatine, as well as some new ones.

Oh, and get ready to revisit with some old friends (or enemies), as this new trailer reveals a character we know from wayyy back in the day. I won't say who it is; I'll let you be surprised. So far I dig the way this looks -- should be a fun time with lots of action. What do you think?
