On January 7, Star Wars: The Clone Wars returns from its mid-season break with the first of 11 new episodes, and judging by this trailer Lucasfilm provided exclusively to EW, they’re making the jump to lightspeed. Set to John Williams’ Wagnerian "Duel of the Fates," the video emphasizes action and mythology, a change of pace since the first half of season 3 has been comprised of more cerebral, dialogue-driven episodes about that Galaxy Far, Far Away’s slippery political landscape. And while so far this season Anakin Skywalker has played second fiddle to lesser-known characters (Sy Snootles, anyone?), the future Darth Vader is clearly the star from here on out, as the series gets ever closer to the events of Revenge of the Sith. Not glimpsed is the new Big Bad, Savage Opress (a relation of Darth Maul!), whose three-part arc kicks off Clone Wars’ January return. That hardly matters, because we’re in for a more chilling sight: Anakin’s earnest young Padawan, Ahsoka Tano, eyes yellow like a Sith, consumed with rage and battling her master! Take a walk on the Dark Side and check it out.
