Lucas looking to wow kids again and have them spending their money on the universe for the rest of their lives!

Will there be midnight showings, street long cues and fanboys getting so very over excited when Star Wars: The Clone Wars opens in August? We might have a better idea in May when the trailer plays for the first time along with showings of the Wachowski's Speed Racer.

The news comes from Coming Soon who also give us this brief preview...
The August 15 release will feature such characters as Anakin Skywalker, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Padmé Amidala, along with brand-new heroes like Anakin's padawan learner, Ahsoka. In the film, Sinister villains €“ led by Palpatine, Count Dooku and General Grievous €“ are poised to rule the galaxy. Stakes are high, and the fate of the "Star Wars" universe rests in the hands of the daring Jedi Knights. Their exploits lead to the action-packed battles and astonishing new revelations.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars is actually a brand new CGI series to be shown on the Cartoon Network beginning in the fall (October we think) but in August, George Lucas will make an obscene amount of money by simply rolling out several episodes back-to-back to make a feature film. And of course we will more than likely all put down our money to see it. Well as long as the trailer isn't terrible anyway.
