‘Revival’ — Clips, stills from Star Wars: The Clone Wars season premiere

Star Wars hasn’t been a Saturday-morning cartoon since Droids and Ewoks ended their brief run in 1986. That all changes this weekend, when Star Wars: The Clone Wars begins its fifth season on Cartoon Network. The series is also making strides beyond cable, as its first two seasons march into syndication on broadcast stations.

Picking up where the epic Season Four finale left off, “Revival” sees Darth Maul and Savage Opress reunited and brimming with rage. They bring terror across the galaxy, invading other worlds and forcibly recruiting space pirates into their army. Brave Jedi confront the brothers in an effort to stop them and must fight for their lives while vying to save the Republic.

Here is the official Season Five summary:

The shadow of the dark side falls upon Star Wars: The Clone Wars Season Five as the series moves closer to the grim events of Star Wars: Episode III Revenge of the Sith. The big-screen action, unforgettable characters, and rousing adventure of the Star Wars Saga continue, as Jedi heroes face a galaxy of foes. With unparalleled visuals, sound, action and adventure, Star Wars: The Clone Wars continues the cinematic saga with the equivalent of a short animated Star Wars movie each week. Season Five is filled with explosive action, exotic worlds, intriguing characters and shocking turns as several major players face their destinies as the galaxy plunges into darkness.

And we have two clips from “Revival,” as well as the screenshots above.
