George Lucas Lucas talks Star Wars television.
A while back we had posted that Lucas did in fact admit that we shouldn't expect to see the Star Wars live - action television series until 2008. Hey, no rush Lucas, it's not like you don't have a bunch of Star Wars fans now drooling after you finally hit the mark with Revenge of the Sith. Well, at least Lucas still checks in from time to time to let us know about the current status of not only the live - action series but the continuation of the animated series in 3D.

Lucas Updates Star Wars TV Status

In a report put out by Variety, reposted by ComingSoon, Lucas updates a bunch of computer nerds, *cough* pros, about the current status on both Star Wars television series. If you have been living under a rock for the past year, then you are probably unfamiliar with the fact that Lucas is going forward with two separate television series based off of the Star Wars universe. The first series is just a continuation of the animated series Clone Wars, except now it will be full CG animation. The other series will contain exactly 100 live - action episodes based on some of the smaller characters from the Star Wars universe.

Below is a little snippet of what CS posted:

For the live-action series, he said, "we're going do something that would normally cost ($20 million-$30 million) and try to do it for $1 million," citing The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles as one show where he was able to stretch his production budget.

Lucas is going to have to tread very carefully with the live - action series in order to avoid damaging the classic trilogy further with corny spin-offs. To check out the whole report, head to Variety.

Stay tuned for updates.
