Season 5 ‘Clone Wars’ Trailer Proves Why It’s a Worthy Star Wars Series

I don’t hide my distaste for the Star Wars prequels one bit.  I like many older Star Wars fans felt duped by these kid-centric films, and have mostly written them out of my brain’s geek archives.  Luckily, George allowed some other creative people to flesh out the Clone Wars period via the animated cartoon of the same name that is now embarking on its 5th season.  I say luckily because this animated version of Star Wars is hands down one of the best pieces of canon to come out of George’s bullish*t Clone Wars era.  I don’t care how old you are, if you’re a Star Wars fan you owe it to yourself to watch this intriguing Cartoon Network series religiously.

If you don’t believe me just watch the extended trailer for Clone Wars season 5 embedded down below.  For the first time in years I actually got goose bumps while consuming something Star Wars related.  I’m not sure if it was entirely due to the awesomeness of the show, and its beautiful animated art style, or the fact that some old school Star Wars music is playing in the background, but I almost felt my inner fanboy coming back to life.

He’ll never be the same after the movie prequels, but shows like the Clone Wars remind him of why he fell in love with this franchise in the first place way back in the 80’s.  I implore you to check out the season 5 trailer below.  The show will premiere on 9/29 at 9:30 AM.  You’ve finally found the Star Wars that you’ve been looking for…
