    BIG NEWS: Small Screen Star Wars
    Thu, Jan 22, 04 12:45:08 AM EST


    We may be able to shed some more light on the info indicating that Episode VII, VII, IX might happen. It may not be for a post-trilogy at all.
    A year ago, we got our first report about the possibility of a TV show in the works after Episode III. We were not able to backup the info with other evidence, so it remained on the side and unreported... until recently.

    We posted rumblings that Steven Spielberg might be involved in Star Wars post-Episode III and there must be something in the works, we got plenty of commentary. Then AICN posted the article about Pacific Digital and licensing agreements being extended, so many concluded that post-ROTJ films might be in the works. However, we also looked at our info from last year and believed we might finally have some proof of the initial report. We needed more.

    We might finally have it. People we trust are telling us that there's a TV show on the design table. Instead of a Rogue Squadron series (which we first theorized some time ago), they may be looking at a post Episode 3 - pre Episode 4 about the rise of Darth Vader and why he is so feared in the OT.

    We cannot confirm yet if the show is intended as live-action or animated (like Clone Wars). Since this is all in the early stages, it could change further down in pre-production. More as we get it - just thought you'd like to know what we're hearing.

    Yipee! :D

    Personally, I'd like to see an X-wing series. It's not like they don't have enough material ;)

    I hope if they do any more SW movies and or TV series, they need to get away from Luke, Han, and all those people... we need newer characters for this... especially since all the original actor's are now ancient! But I'm with Feldman anyway...

    i think it'd be cool if the show focused on new characters who were aware of the old characters. maybe they're related to them or know them by reputation only, but at least then maybe sometimes we could hear rumors of what the characters are up to. maybe in passing conversation?

    god i hope it's a live action show. that'd be SO COOL. i doubt it will be, though.

    i wouldn't mind it being somewhat anime-ish if it had to be animation, if it was along the lines of cowboy bebop or aeon flux. but i'd much prefer live action, cause then we could all take a trip down to where it's being filmed and demand roles. :D

    this reminds me, they started reselling the luke rotj saber in the new star wars packaging (and lots of other original trilogy stuff is starting to show up), so maybe it's trying to see what the interest in the OT still is among kids. if they gobble up the toys, maybe the show has a better chance? *shrugs* it seems kinda logical to me (but i understand that's not saying much). ;)

    Kids don't create the kind of marketshare they would need to mount just such a venture :p

    They are going after that 16-35 age bracket... That's wher ethe big bucks are [face_devil] Think about it.... How much have we spent on this obsession of ours? And how many teenagers can convince their parents to spend money on them?
