Lucasfilm Clarifies New "Star Wars" Projects

by | May 23, 2007 | Comments

Fox’s Roger Friedman was all sorts of confused when he announced that George Lucas was planning a pair of "Star Wars" TV movies, and now we have the official confirmation to prove it.

Mr. Friedman, who claimed that "the two extra films will also be made for TV and probably be an hour long each," was referring to the pair of "Star Wars" TV series that George Lucas has been talking about since "Revenge of the Sith" hit theaters: The CGI-animated "Clone Wars," which should hit the airwaves sometime next year, and the live-action series which we might not get to see until 2010.

From the lips of Lucasfilm spokeman Steve Sansweet: "George and [Star Wars producer] Rick McCallum were just now starting work on a live-action series. A drama. That will probably be coming out in 2009 or 2010. He is actively at work on both of those. But the CG-animated series is more adult. It has a lot of humor in it. It is very cinematic. We will be talking about that for the first time at the Celebration."

That celebration will take place at the Star Wars Celebration event, which starts on May 24th.
