Star Wars TV Show?

[Media Source*]

(Cross Posted on Blogger News)

LOS ANGELES : "Stars Wars" creator George Lucas has revealed that Luke Skywalker and Princess Leia may turn their talents to television following the release of the last Star Wars film next month...

But Lucas revealed at the gathering of hard-core fans in the midwestern US city of Indianapolis that his company Lucasfilm is working on two television shows that would keep his famed series alive.

Both series will be set in the years between the end of "Revenge of the Sith" and the beginning of the original "Star Wars," he said.

The shows will not be released for another year as Lucus is insisting on writing the entire script out before launching both programs (a wise move as one could learn from watching The Matrix Trilogy bomb out). One of these shows appears to be a 3-D cartoon of some sort and centers around the "clone wars." It will probably be another "Saturday morning cartoon hit" but could possibly bring in profits through video game spin-off's.

The other show seems to be more "live action" and will unfortunately leave out some of the main characters of the story (although focusing on other characters may add a new life to Star Wars). My guess is that it will take place between "Revenge of the Sith" and "A New Hope" and will further cement the two trilogies together.

Lucus is taking a huge gamble here--if either of these series fails it will be something of an embarrassment to all six movies (five, as the "Phantom Menace" was not that great of a film). If successful however, it will still prove that Lucas has his "mojo" and will lead to not only bigger revenues for his company, but perhaps instilling yet another media cultural phenomenon within our generation.
