Star Wars TV Series Coming Soon

Posted in Uncategorized at 10:01 am by Give Me The Remote

Star Warsies rejoice (what do you call the Star Wars equivalent to Trekkies anyway?). Okay start again. Star Wars fans rejoice, a new television series is on the way. To add to the gazillion other little books, comics, radio plays, games and trading cards in the franchise, George Lucas has decided that we need another telly series.

It’s going to be live action and not include Darth Vader or Luke Skywalker. George Lucas told the LA Times that “The Skywalkers aren’t in it, and it’s about minor characters.” It is likely however that main characters from the movies may make cameo appearances – perhaps Yoda, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Chewbacca.

The program is set to debut in 2009 and will be set between Episode III and Episode IV (between the old and new movies).

Imagine if it were a half decent series. Can you imagine watching Star Wars in primetime. That would be totally weird I reckon. Lucas has said that if the series is successful then there could be more. Obviously he feels he hasn’t squeezed this sucker for all it’s worth yet.
