George Lucas wants to make sure we don't forget that more Star Wars is on the way and it won't just be another DVD box set. With both the 3-D animated and the live-action series making progress, Lucas cou'dn't help but touch on the topic while addressing the Directors Guild of America.
Lucas Talks Star Wars TV
The good people at theforce have recently received a report describing Lucas's presentation at the Directors Guild of America. Some highlights:
Quote: “the future is in television.” That’s why he’s concentrating on an animated series and live action series, not features.
He’s very excited about the animated 3D Clone Wars TV series. He is trying to recreate the ambiance of a SW film in cartoon form – “there won’t be anything on TV like it” – it’ll be “smart ass comedy with contemporary humor.” It won’t be dealing with the Skywalker story. The emphasis is on freedom to portray anything they feel like; for instance some episodes are just about clonetroopers, another features as the main character Kit Fisto. He’s going to make 100 episodes, doesn’t have a network yet.
The live action series is still a few years away, no character decisions have been cast in stone. He did say that each show will be a different character.
Lucas also touches on the long-awaited Indy Jones Chronicles DVD. Head over to theforce to read all about it.
