George Lucas Talks Star Wars TV Projects

With the Indiana Jones 4 project ALLEGEDLY starting production in the next couple of months (sorry, I still can’t allow myself to believe it… heart broken too many times), George Lucas has been doing some talking about the upcoming Star Wars TV projects. And to me (the single biggest Star Wars fan and geek in the universe) they sound lame.

ComingSoon reports the following: received word from the Directors Guild of America where George Lucas was a guest speaker. The “Star Wars” creator talked about Lucasfilm’s upcoming projects. Here’s a clip:

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. also got a chance to talk to Lucas and he revealed more about the animated show:

He tells us about a new character we will see in the upcoming animated series that takes place during the Clone wars. Her name is Osoka (this is a phonetic spelling, after all, with Lucas and his spelling magic it will probably be Osaakua or something like that), she is a young Padawan learner, it’s her first assignment and she’s very young. she’s a little Togruta, the same species as Shaak Ti from Episodes II and III.

The Clone Wars animated show was pretty decent, but none of what I read above gives me any kind of hope for the projects. One shot stories instead of an episodic storyline? Another little damn kid a padawan???? Haven’t we tried that already? Oh yeah… and it FAILED! Why go back to that?.

I don’t know… maybe it’s just me. Do you guys thing this stuff has a shot?
