Lucas Confirms Star Wars spin-off TV series
« on: April 25, 2005, 06:46:09 pm »
Wow, I didn't quite see this coming! It seems like we will never be able to escape the Star Wars universe. And now we can watch it twice a week at home on TV! Here is the info:

"In a rare public appearance at the Star Wars Celebration III (his previous fan event appearance was in 1987), George Lucas confirmed that he's working on two TV series. One will be a full 3D animation series (with 30-minute episodes) of the recent Cartoon Network Clone Wars shorts, and the other a live-action series, that will be set in the time between Episodes III and IV, but won't feature the main characters. Production is expected to begin in about a year."

My friend was at Celebration and he was pretty pumped about although less so when he heard that Lucas would be writing and directing for the live action show.  I myself am...hesitant.  Although the Genndy Tartatovsky one should rock hard. -leeman

Awesome! The series will never die. Now he just has to give in and make the next 3 movies.

Interesting - let's hope they are as good as the Battlestar Galactica TV series!

Wow. That's pretty neat. Here's hoping they do it well. ;D

Makes me wonder which network'll play the live-action series.

If it's as good as the Battlestar Galactica series I think I'd wet myself. Many times.

You just answered your own question.  If you don't like sci-fi shows then that explains why you dislike the Battlestar Galactica series.

They should just make a Star Wars channel.

The Sci-Fi channel could just start making other channels a la Discovery. (Just not documentaries)

There could be Star Wars, as GameManic suggested, a classic show channel (older Star Treks, etc), a Stargate channel, etc.

No offense, I've noticed that a lot of your posts are weird enigmatic statements like that. There's not really any problem with that, I just like reading big posts I guess.

Anyhow, I think they should have a Simpsons/Family Guy channel before a Star Wars channel.

I am like that, I do have the time (for the most part) to make long posts but I don't feel the need for it if I can make them with a few words.
