Star Wars: A New Hope
Thanks to a report on licensing from TheHollywoodReporter, we now have a couple new updates on both Indiana Jones IV and the Star Wars DVDs, live-action series and the animated series.
Star Wars and Indy 4 Updates
THR has recently posted an article on licensing and, right near the end of the report, gives a quick update on the status and scheduled release of some major Lucas projects.
Among those initiatives are the first CG-animated "Star Wars" TV series slated for 2008, a live-action "Star Wars" series in preproduction, a new video game from LucasArts tied to the 30th anniversary of "Star Wars" that will be released in fall 2007, the release of the original versions of the first three "Star Wars" films on DVD singles in the fall and a new Lego "Star Wars" video game based on the original trilogy, also scheduled for fall.
Howard Roffman, president of Lucas Licensing, said the Lucasfilm division also will be looking for licensing partners for the summer 2007 release of a new "Indiana Jones" video game from LucasArts and the summer 2008 release of a new "Indiana Jones" movie.
So we can expect to see the animated series for Star Wars, the live-action Star Wars series, and Indiana Jones IV all in the same year? But what time does that leave for the 3D remakes of the Star Wars trilogies?
