Here are the latest updates on the Star Wars
live-action television series and reports on the possibility of another
Star Wars film.

We first had reported that we could expect the
Star Wars live-action television series to hit television sets
maybe as soon as a year. Well, it looks like we are going to have to wait
longer according to George Lucas in an interview with IESB.
In the interview, Lucas states that production on the series will not begin
for one to two years, instead of under a year like first reported. He states
that his number one priority at this point in time is working on Indiana
Jones 4 and cranking out a finished Indy script.
When asked about including Knights of the Old Republic in flashbacks
in the Star Wars television series, Lucas says that that would
be an option for a whole other series, depending on the success of this
series, which takes place between Episode III and Episode IV.
The series will include a bunch of mini-stories for some of the smaller
characters in the Star Wars universe. In a report from USA
Today, we could expect Boba Fett to make an appearance by the
same little kid actor, who is now 18, that played young Boba in Attack
of the Clones.
Ford was approached by Daniel Logan, 18, who played young Boba Fett in Episode II: Attack of the Clones. Lucas said Logan's character may be included in his live-action Star Wars TV series, which is in the works.
One of the final questions was whether Lucas planned
on another Star Wars movie in the future. Lucas, without any delay,
gives a firm 'NO.' However, lets ask him that again after the Star Wars
live-action series gets rolling. And, as I have stated before, a Knights
of the Old Republic would be the easiest route to go.
