This can mean only one thing, invasion. Okay, it can mean something else. We might actually be hearing something official in the U.S. market here pretty soon if the series is starting in less than a month in Germany. I always imagined getting all the content at once, which I still hope is true for the U.S. I suppose it is not out of the question to imagine this content will be handled differently in different markets.
If you are avoiding spoilers to the extent you wouldn’t read the TV listing on your television before watching the episode don’t bother reading on, just know Star Wars: The Clone Wars is airing in Germany on February 15th, one episode at a time. Beyond this there are superficial details.

Star Wars Union has some interesting Star Wars: The Clone Wars bonus content information. I have no idea why we keep hearing about the bonus content in other markets, but that seems to be where the information is coming from these days. Coming on the heels of the Polish trailer for the bonus content (said to be called The Lost Missions), here is the Google Translation of the information:
