I don't quite buy it just yet.
I've never heard that before!
I hope it's about the giant space worm that lives in the asteroid.....and a musical. That way I don't have to get my hopes up.
I love how every so often this pops up.
If he ever gets the TV series going, I MIGHT be more apt to believe this!
Read the UPDATE, at the bottom of the new.
believe half of what you see none of what you hear
"we are here to report that there is nothing to report, we will continue to report the lack of new information until new information becomes available to report. Reporting in live on the scene where nothing is happening.... Joe Reporter....back to you in the studio"
Will never see that. The live action series was cancelled. Lucas couldnt find a buyer for a tv show that cost $2mil an episode so the scripts were abandoned for the foreseeable future. All efforts will continue to focus on the Clone Wars cartoon series and its accompanying retail swag. In addition to the re-working and re-releaseing of all six previous movies. This takes us through the next five years anyway. That and the continued Celebrations, Star Wars Weekends, etc and they've got a full plate. Now it is known that one of the reasons old George continued with The Phantom Menace was due to the re-release of the original Star Wars movies in the theater suprising him by the money they made. So perhaps if he rakes in bucks off the re-release of episodes 1-6 in the movie houses, he may consider doing what was repeatedly told to us as a NO when it comes to releasing new movies. I doubt it though. he can spend a lot less money, tell more stories and make more money off cartoons now. Besides, he'll be getting pretty old by the end of the decade.
YouTube - Star Wars TV Series - Lucas Gives an Update
50 Million an episode..!! There is always hope.. george needs the money
In my opinion he should just stall the "live action" series for a few more years. By the time The Clone Wars is done their animation studio will be able to make nearly if not completely realistic episodes without live actors. Wins all around.
