This belongs in the Lucasfilm Projects board because it will be a Lucasfilm project. A source that Harry absolutely trusts dropped this bomb!! If true, it will shake the foundations of SW fandom! [link=http://www.aintitcoolnews.com/display.cgi?id=13807]source[/link] CLONE WARS Animated Series on CARTOON NETWORK!!! Hey folks, Harry here... As always my spies in Lucasfilm, well... pretty much they kickass. I love em, because as always they provide me with the ability to see and hear things far before the average person. So much so at times that the news seems made up, but in reality... It's just out there waiting for the rotation of the earth to pass round the sun enough times to catch up to the news. This came from a source that I ABSOLUTELY TRUST, he/she/it has been providing news to AICN for years out of Lucasfilm - and he/she/it doesn't drop the ball. I'm told that very very few people know the following bit of info, so getting confirmation on it will most likely be a bitch, but since this sort doesn't tickle the jewels without following through, I'm going with it. There have been top secret meetings between Lucasfilm and Cartoon Network, and they are in ADVANCE DISCUSSIONS to do an immense animated series called CLONE WARS. The time frame is still being discussed as either starting the year before Episode 3 hits theaters, or the Summer of Episode 3. Lucas is negotiating for a huge 50-60 episode order!!! I just hope that they get smart and get some of the talent that worked on DROIDS a billion years ago that has evolved into somebody super great at the Animated Series... How cool would it be if they brought on Paul Dini to be a Writer/Producer for this? Can you imagine? Ok, that's me being a fanboy, but dammit, nobody writes better toons on TV! NOBODY! This news will most likely be denied till Lucasfilm and Cartoon Network are ready to Announce, but you heard it here first! [hr] This thread is (or has become) too "star wars" for this particular board. If the project is greenlighted, I will consider reopening this to discuss the ILM involvement. To continue discussing the "Clone Wars TV show", please refer to this thread in Literature [link=http://boards.theforce.net/message.asp?topic=10169466] Clone Wars editorial [/link] [hr]21-Feb-03. Reopening this on a trial basis. I'm still uncomfortable that it's undoubtably a "Star Wars" topic. However we do allow Star Wars discussion when it centres on the ILM or Skywalker sound involvement etc. I'm willing to give this thread another go, so long as it centres on the non-Star Wars plot aspects, such as production values, animation techniques etc. [hr] 24-Feb 03 OK, now that we have a dedicated forum for this discussion, I will defer all future Clone Wars threads / discussion to this place; [link=http://boards.theforce.net/board.asp?brd=10467] Small Screen Star Wars [/link] Please continue this thread in the new forum. Thanks.
