Phase II Clones and not ARC's either (see the Plo Koon opening scene)

Definitely Ackbar, probably Mon Calamari from the looks of it (yay!).  Phase 2 Rex and other clones.  Naboo.  Looks good.  It's always exciting to see new Star Wars... I just hope next year improves on this one.

Ackbar comes for season 4 as an anphibious guy
more duels: Dooku, jedi, Grievous; as they are changing timeline I hope they modify the boring cliché of Anakin never see Grievous, that would be challeging. Make them fight Filoni´s team

That's Ackbar for sure! It looks like Captain Tarpels shows up too and duels Grievous as a lot of Gungans watch. Towards the end of the trailer you see him impale Grievous with his spear under the ribcage right through his shoulder. Not sure if the blow will incapacitate his saber arm because if he does not he will be cut in half. Pretty cool a Gungan is taking it to Grievous. I always like Captian Tarpels, this could redefine Gungans if he beats him and lives. I just hope next season is pure action and as little Padme as possible. Every time she shows up the episode stinks.

And yet another video already...  Check It Out!

Hasbro's really jerking the fans along on Season 4 and it's a day after the Season 3 finale.  Good lord.

The eyecandy in this video is way better than the first one, IMO.

Went to Wondercon today and attended the TCW panel... it was so funny, because I was getting into line with my friend when he unknowingly bumped into Dave Filoni! I just stood there in awe with my eyes wide open. It was somewhat embarassing, as Filoni caught sight of me just staring at him.

The Season 4 trailer they previewed was different from the one that accompanied the Season 3 finale. By the looks of it, I wonder if Filoni is re-interpreting the Battle of Mon Calamari (from the original CW microseries) into the new animated format, as a shirtless Kit Fisto fighting alongside the Mon Calamari was in the preview, and it looks like they're even trying to sneak Ahsoka into the battle, too. It's funny, because if they do that, then they're slipping Ahsoka into a series done over 5 years ago - an example of good behind-the-scenes work.

During the Q/A, some little kid shyly asked if the "tall guy from the Nightsisters episode with the horns (Savage Opress) will find the other guy (Darth Maul)." Filoni laughed a little at the poor kid and said that YES, that plot point will be continued, but he didn't say if it would be next season.

Other Q/A answers:
- Another OT character might be on the next season of TCW
- Asajj Ventress will make a comeback (wasn't specified when, though)
- Luminara Unduli is also going to be getting a new outfit, too
- Filoni himself hasn't even worked out yet what will happen to Ahsoka as far as her eventual fate goes, so he's still unsure about what will happen with that
- 2 of the things he's most concerned about (plot-wise) are the fates of Rex and Ahsoka

A couple of things I picked out

Grievous on Naboo
Shirtless Kit Fisto
Some sort of Dexter Jettster type Jedi

I also caught a sleeker Republic fighter like an ARC-170/Z95/Xwing cross.

I paused the video on some cooler looking shots, and the Dexter Jedi was one of them. It looked like he had two double bladed lightsabers, so that was kinda cool. It was also neat to see some new clone armor and clones from previous episodes returning.

I think this guy could deal with Grievous 4 arms lightsaber style, and will be a redemption to reptilian guys (more important for fans who wanted a good trandoshian) The Filoni team began using a non very agresive like species
the tortoise Dexter like Jedi.

I agree with the posts according to the redefinition of the Gungans: as Grievous is bullying them, they show spirit, and become less naif and useful for the fight.

Anakin / Grievous

Grievous: I didn´t expect you were so young.

Anakin: I expected you were taller, General.

With all respect to the PT, they should fight, at least once, cause Ashoka was dealing with the cyborg in the first 2 seasons.

This cliché could be mended making both characters fight in a dark scenario.

Gotta pump out some new toys!

The previews have definitely been interesting.  And there's going to be another Dooku vs Anakin lightsaber duel that we can probably surmise will not lead to anything of any consequence.  If anything, I would hope that any lightsaber duels in season 4 will feature Grievous as he continues to take out more Jedi.  Perhaps the Dexter Jettster looking Jedi will serve that purpose and show the Jedi being killed off as we near the events of REVENGE OF THE SITH.

It's also good to see that the Clone troopers are transitioning into the Phase II armor.  We saw some hints of this with the ARC Troopers in season 3, but it seems that all the troops have gotten the new armor now.  And in the Cartoon Network preview it seems that the Clones are wondering about the post-war landscape.  Could there be any discussion amongst them regarding Order 66?  It would certainly cast their relationship with the Jedi generals in a whole new light.

Ackbar being featured in the series will be very cool.  And you have to think that Filoni will be trying to fit in "It's a trap!" into his dialogue, too.

Definitely Ackbar,

Confirmed. I checked the source code at the site, and the image with the Mon Cal in question is labeled "ackbar".

I'm hoping for a Z95...  They've been in the EU since before the EU was the EU, so I'm really hoping those are Z95 type fighters...  it's so customizable, they could be taking liberties and it could still fit within the ship's story.   :-X

I loved that video though, it was great.
