Will Yoda make a cameo appearance?
Here are the latest updates about the two upcoming
Star Wars television series that should hit our sets in about a
year after the release of Star
Wars Revenge of the Sith.
More Star Wars Television Details
got the latest scoop on the upcoming live-action Star Wars television
series, but I don't know how seriously you can take it. Considering the
number of shows stated, something already seems fishy about this one. Check
out the latest scoop to see for yourself:
I was just watching the news over here in Australia and they said that the TV series will be shot in Australia and a deal will be done this June. The show will be one hundred episodes long and a hour each.
Considering Fox's new thing for hour-long episodes,
I do like the sound of each episode being a hour each. But 100 episodes...
who came up with that number?
And what is new for the animated series? Well, Lucas confirmed that the
animated series will be a continuation of Clone Wars, but it will be completely
polished with computer-generated graphics and told during a different period
than the original series. Here is a little of what Lucas had to say to Static
Multimedia on the animated series:
The animated TV series called 'Clone
Wars' is about the clone wars. Some of it has been on the Cartoon Network,
but we're making it into an actual half hour, 3D animation series, and the
other one deals with minor characters. And the time period is between episode
3 and episode 4, that 20-year stretch, but the characters aren't any of
the main characters that are in the movies.
Now the big question is whether they are going
to have trailers for the two upcoming television series.
