Star Wars: Clone Wars Season 3 Premieres Tonight September 17, 2010September 17, 2010 by Jen Rabulan-Bertram The third season of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars is set to premiere tonight on the Cartoon Network. Be sure to catch the premiere tonight to catch the latest adventures. Jedi Master Shaak Ti surveys the troops in ”Clone Cadets,” an all-new episode of STAR WARS: THE CLONE WARS premiering at 9:00 p.m. ET/PT Friday, September 17 on Cartoon Network. The war wears on, and the Republic is pushed to its breaking point. Support for the Jedi Knights and their noble cause comes in the form of valiant clone troopers – steadfast defenders of peace and justice, even as the Jedi falter and the mighty Republic begins to crumble. Joined by familiar faces and confronted with deadly new threats, these everyman heroes lead the charge into a transformative new season of Clone Wars adventures – where alliances will be tested, truths will be questioned and galaxy-changing secrets will be uncovered to shake the very foundations of the Star Wars universe. In light of the Clone Wars’ premiere, there’s been a variety of Star Wars-related events and launches, which I’ll be sure to share about soon. On a related note, on September 10, Lucasfilm Ltd. and Cartoon Network rolled out the red carpet for a special screening of the Season Three premiere of The Clone Wars at the Letterman Digital Arts Center in San Francisco. With special guests in mind, the event, sponsored by Hasbro, featured a presentation of the season’s launch episode, videogame demos, Hasbro Galactic Battle game stations, photo opportunities with costumed characters, Jedi Academy Training and more. Special guests included youth from the Boys & Girls Clubs of San Francisco, along with Executive Producer George Lucas, Supervising Director Dave Filoni, Producer Cary Silver and the cast of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. That’s a lot of light sabers!
