'Clone Wars' Trailer: Star Wars LIKE YOU'VE NEVER SEEN IT BEFORE

I've seen a stylized animated version of The Clone Wars; I've seen countless 3-D animated sequences in the Star Wars films. So I really have no idea what this trailer is referencing when it says, "Prepare to see Star Wars like you've never seen it before." How is this like I've never seen it before? That it lazily merges two ways I've already seen it before? That watching it is a joyless exercise in stretching my childhood nostalgia to its limits? That any mild excitement it creates is only a pavlovian response to hearing the hum of a lightsaber? None of that is a new way to experience Star Wars. In fact, that's sort of become the standard.
