    Thanks to mixnmojo.com for the heads-up.

    On today's IMDB news, this appeared at the end of a Finding Nemo / Pixar article;

    Meanwhile, George Lucas, who sold Pixar to Jobs in 1986 for $10 million, has launched Lucasfilm Animation to develop and create its own films. Spokeswoman Lynn Hale told today's (Monday) Los Angeles Times: "It's extremely exciting to have the opportunity to start the search for directors to build projects around."

    Interesting... I wonder how this bodes for future Star Wars projects? :confused:

    Might be gearing up for a post-Episode 3 series; as Genndy hinted he'd like to do in the recent Insider article (he says he'd like to do a Han & Chewie series).

    Or perhaps the Shadows of the Empire animation project that McCallum hinted (or perhaps was just teasing) about.

    I would mind something like that. I would like to see a Star Wars series, more about the relaxed side of Star Wars and having fun, kindda like when I rented one of the droid series movies a long long time ago.

    In fact, I wouldn't mid watching that droid series again. It's fun to watch and relax, not all this action and explosions. Does anyone know where you could rent the droid series at, or parts of it at least?

    A video store may have a few episodes on tape.

    They'll probably release the whole thing on DVD after Episode 3 comes out, especially since Ben Burtt worked on them and included so many references to them in the Prequels.

    Yeah, I'll go check out my local Blockbuster and see what they have. I'll even give my local food store a look and see what they have.

    Gee, am I the only one who is looking forward to see Lucas do something new outside of Star Wars?

    Unfortunately, stores like Blockbuster (in the UK at least) don't seem to have Droids / Ewoks. Their shelves are kept too up-to-date.
    The best bet for tracking them down is probably going to be the smaller, independent video-rental stores or Ebay. That's where I got mine from, got em all now :D

    I'd absolutely love to see some post-Episode III/ pre-Episode IV projects.

    What about the very old republic time period when the sith were in greater numbers. A project dealing with that could be interesting.
