'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' draws 'Battle Lines' in Season 4

Lucasfilm Animation and Cartoon Network released this Season 4 trailer for "Star Wars: The Clone Wars," which launches at 7 p.m. Sept. 16 on Cartoon Network.

The hour-long premiere offers up two episodes, titled "Water War" and "Gungan Attack." In the first two episodes of this three-part story arc, the inhabitants of the watery world of Mon Calamari find themselves on the brink of a civil war. The Jedi soon realize they will need the help of a powerful and amphibious ally to stop the war and drive out the Separatist invaders.

Lucasfilm is calling Season 4 "Battle Lines." Here's all the info provided about the season:

" 'Battle Lines' promises to continue the saga that 'Star Wars' fans of all ages have grown to love, with the most fearless heroes and evilest bad guys returning for an action-packed season of fun and adventure. As the heroic Jedi Knights and their clone army fight to preserve order, their efforts continue to be met with strong resistance from the massive Separatist droid army. Escalating and expanding into uncharted corners of the galaxy, the scope and scale of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars' continue to grow, with exotic adventures and enhanced animation strengthening ties to the 'Star Wars' saga. Within the galactic battle, fearsome foes from the past return to settle the score. As unexpected alliances are formed on both sides of the battle, the action explodes and the course of the war takes an unforeseen turn! 'Battle Lines' brings viewers right up to the front-lines of the massive galactic conflict, revealing the stories that forged the 'Star Wars' galaxy."
