Anyone tuning in to a Turner Networks cable channel at 7:58 tonight (Thursday) will be able to view a two-minute trailer for Lucasfilm's animated Star Wars: The Clone Wars, which premieres theatrically on August 15. The trailer will air on the Cartoon Network, CNN, TNT, TBS and Boomerang. In a statement, Lucasfilm VP Howard Roffman said, "We're incredibly proud of the Clone Wars and eager to be able to showcase it for the first time in such an exciting way." The movie itself, which is being distributed by Warner Bros., a corporate sibling of Turner, is intended to lay the foundation for Lucasfilm's forthcoming animated Star Wars: the Clone Wars TV series, set to air on Turner's Cartoon Network. A date for the season debut of the series has not been set.
