  • A new battle droid design is featured. (0:09)
  • A new, as yet unnamed, Nikto Jedi will join the ranks of Republic defenders. (0:14, 0:59 & 1:13)

  • Seth Green returns to voice Cad Bane’s droid, Todo 360. (0:33)
  • C-3PO gets kidnapped?! (0:36)
  • Jabba the Hutt, Ziro the HuttAsajj Ventress and series regular, General Grievous, return to the rouges gallery.
  • New characters, Sergeant Bric and two new as yet unnamed clone leaders will make their Clone Wars debuts. (0:52 & 1:20)

  • Cad Bane wields a lightsaber?! (1:17)
  • Season 3 will return to the cloning world of Kamino. (1:27)

Season 3 looks like it will focus heavily on Anakin Skywalker’s padawan, Ahsoka Tano. Ahsoka has been a controversial character, mostly stemming from the fact that she is never referenced in Revenge of the Sith. So the question still remains – what becomes of her? Season 3 might provide some answers.

See anything else of interest in the new trailer? Any predictions for Season 3?
