    It was a made up story from the Daily Star. He has not been asked to appear in any Star Wars spin-off only Indy 4. As for the real spin-off, that's the live action tv series due in 2009/10, which is supposed to be set between episodes 3+4.

    You mean the Daily Star printed a story that was made up!!

    How dare you!

    The Daily Star is the last beacon of truth and justice in modern journalism!

    Damn Daily Star. Get us common flk all excited! =]
    Its good that they are making the series though, it sounds interesting. I hope its not like "The New Adventures Of Hercules" cheese stuff. Everyone all great looking, American accents, and after getting dregged through a murky swamp, they come out the other end with great hair, and a little bit dirt on their clothes!
    You know the drill! =]

    Sounds quite an interesting prospect actually.

    100 episodes (5 seasons at 20 per season?), focus will be on "background and/or minor characters", it will chart the rise and spread of the Empire and how the rebelion came into being.

    Setting it in this time period does give it the opportunity to use some of the stars from the movies and the rumour (but it's only a rumour) has been that the likes of Jimmy Smits, Ian McDiarmund, Anthony Daniels etc are al prepared to appear in it. Who knows who else might be up for it (Ewan McGreggor in an Obi-Wan/Tatooine episode maybe?)

    Expect a large budget, movie quality production values, hi-def broadcasts, and we should have a bright future to look forward to.

    This franchise makes far too much money to ever really stop, there may not be any more movies but you just know it's going to keep going.
