Associated Content is reporting that George Lucas is now working on the foundation for a Star Wars television series. Who says that there is nothing good in the news these days?
According to Lucas, the new television series will share the same galaxy as the Star Wars movies, however none of the well known characters will appear or be mentioned in the new series. Lucas wants to focus on the tech and robotics while gardening many other plots that could exist in the Star Wars galaxy.
Viewers of course have high expectations for the series, Lucas appears to be taking great care to ensure that the series has the neat Star Wars feel to it and keep us entertained. I am so sick of reality programming that I’d watch this new series even if it didn’t feel the same as the movies.
You see, if Darth Vader was simply ‘voted off’ of the Death Star, the world would be a very boring place. I hope that this series does well and producers wake up to the fact that geeks can’t stand reality programming. Since being a geek is now (finally) the trendy thing to be, you – my production friends must welcome your ‘sorda smelly’ overlords.
The confines of a small screen (yes, even your monster sized television is small compared to a movie screen) will be interesting to overcome. Lucas is being rather tight-lipped about how he plans to pull it off. I haven’t found word yet on an expected kick-off date for the series, however I’m sure that it will be heavily advertised and promoted.
George, thanks for giving us something good to watch. I can’t wait to see how the series is shaped
