While Clone Wars is deep in production, Lucas recently admitted that the live-action series he plans to make was far, far away from production. Fortunately that should all change beginning this week.

Star Wars Live-Action Pitches Writers

Entertainment Weekly reports that George Lucas is looking to get something started on the live-action Star Wars series this week.

Multiple sources have confirmed to that George Lucas is coming to Los Angeles next week to meet with writers for his long-gestating live-action Star War series. According to one agent familiar with the project, Lucas' plan is to recruit several freelancers - aka "writers of real significance" - to spend a week at the Skywalker Ranch in November to come up with story ideas for the series. The agent also said that Lucas has indicated a desire to hire writers from other countries. The scribes would then disperse and write the 13 episodes that would be produced and financed by Lucas.

The series was originally intended to have 26 episodes, but that was before Lucas discovered that finding a network partner might not be as easy as one would think.

What, Jedi's aren't marketable?

Though there are no confirmed plot specifics, it is still assumed that the episodes will take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.

Either way, just imagine if they decided to adapt the television series to film! (*force* sarcasm)
