When Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith closed out its theatrical run we were left with a number of promises from George Lucas on the franchise. So many in fact that I might as well list them:
1. There will be a live-action Star Wars TV series.
2. There will be a CG animated series similar to Clone Wars.
3. All six Star Wars movies will return to theatres in the 3D format, supposedly by 2008.
Now, I haven't heard much on the re-release of Star Wars in 3D, but the idea sounds too good to be true. Fortunately, new news has popped up on the animated series and, from the looks of things, Lucasfilm is making progress.
Rob Coleman: Animated Star Wars Making Progress
The good people at Mintinbox have recently recorded a video interview with Rob Coleman. During the interview, Coleman discusses the latest developments on the Star Wars animated series, which RebelScum has highlighted below:
-Currently 15 episodes in various stages of production
-One, almost two episodes fully completed
-Coleman to direct 5 of first 26 episodes
-"They're looking fabulous, they're looking great..."
-"Our stuff is incredible compared to what's out there..."
-Some licensees have viewed footage and the reaction was very positive
-Final assembly of shows is done at Skywalker Ranch
-Rob admits to collecting some trinkets along the way
-Rob hopes to be able to attend Celebration IV
I was a huge fan of both volumes of Clone Wars and can't to see what next Lucas has in store.
