nice info. good to see that some things are on the right track.

good work, Prime. :)

Rogue15 03-05-2007 05:52 PM

over 100 episodes........damn.

The Doctor 03-05-2007 06:31 PM

S'only four seasons. Not that big a deal. Enough to let it enter syndication, though.

Rogue15 03-05-2007 06:35 PM

that's still plenty...more footage than all sw combined!

The Doctor 03-05-2007 06:45 PM

I dunno, I've always hoped that the Star Wars series would be more like a full seven or eight seasons. No more than that, though - don't want it to 'jump the shark'.

Commander Obi-Wan 03-05-2007 07:23 PM

Ah, yes. Prime fought the video that I didn't.

Cool. Though, I think that's only 100 episodes about the Clone Wars, and not the Live Action series, IIRC from that video. Still, that's quite a bit of content. And I hope, and suspect, they would be hour long episodes. Unless, they'll be only half hour episodes....

Thanks for the link, Prime. :)

Shem 03-05-2007 07:40 PM

That is so cool. I love George Lucas interviews. Great find Prime.

Jason Skywalker 03-05-2007 07:51 PM

Star Wars dead? BLASPHEMY!

...

Oh wait, NOT dead. Ah, ok.

Good find though Prime.

Point Man 03-05-2007 08:14 PM

That should be enough to last me into old age...oh wait, too late!

Char Ell 03-05-2007 11:14 PM

Nice find, Prime. Listening to GL talk about some of the things that will be featured in the upcoming SW animated TV series made me hope that the new series will take a different tact than the Clone Wars animated shorts did. I didn't think those were all that great.

lukeiamyourdad 03-05-2007 11:27 PM

Great news indeed. Hell, even without any kind of new show, Star Wars will live on forever in our hearts and souls :)

Pho3nix 03-06-2007 07:16 AM

Now It's just the long long wait that aches everyday. :xp:

Jeff 03-06-2007 08:02 AM

Glad to hear it from the big man himself. :)

Ztalker 03-06-2007 08:25 AM

Got a good feeling about this...

You can just see the sparkle in his eyes when he talks about the series, a good sign. Good thing he cleared some stuff up :D

Great link!

HerbieZ 03-06-2007 10:43 AM

I get the sense the more cooler stuff will be in the second season. As entire first season is directed by Lucas. Some of the more creative minds behind the expanded universe do the best stuff i think, so hopefully they get someone more familier with the expanded universe to direct the second :P. Oh and im not holding my breath hoping it wont be 90% green-screen. :/ Still, looks awesome.

Ditto

Titanius Anglesmith 03-06-2007 12:18 PM

It's good to hear the big guy himself say it. It seems a bit odd that he was so shifty about the live-action series, but still, this all good news indeed. :D

Kas'!m 03-06-2007 05:09 PM

I find it ludicrous that George doesn't know the names of his own creations.

deathdisco 03-07-2007 12:49 AM

He just asks for exotic aliens, wich he approves based on what they look like. Someone else comes up with what kind of species they are. To George they're all:
Hamerhead
Walrusman
Snagletooth
ect.
:xp::xp::xp:

While I'm looking foward to the Star Wars TV series, I just hope it isn't wrecked or incomplete, like TSL was, which will annoy some fans. If Lucas can do the series alright, then I have a good feeling that the series will be good.

Totally different scenario. Lucas can take whatever time he likes to make the series. He's top dog, and nobody's going to tell him when or how to finish.

That's quite different from Obsidian, who had a solid plot for TSL, but were contracted to make it into a game by Lucasarts, who demanded they finish it in less than a year and then decided to cut two months off that schedule.

Thankfully those two don't compare at all. That said, I don't think Lucas' prequel trilogy has been as good as the original (though I consider RotS to be better than RotJ). So somehow, I've got a bad feeling about the new show...

Sabretooth 03-07-2007 05:10 AM

A new character called what? Asoka? That's the third reference to Indian history I know, alongside Shaak Ti and Admiral Ackbar.

But yeah, good to know that stuff is still going on at Lucas'. Somehow, I know I can trust Lucas when he said that Star Wars is going to get better and better.

RC-1162 03-07-2007 06:51 AM

booyah!

uh, will it be aired in the gulf? or india?

India, I think so. They did show the Clone Wars, and Lucas has a studio in Singapore, meaning that he might be somewhat friendly with South Asia. :D

As for the Gulf, I have no frickin' idea. A good hint is, if you got the original Clone Wars, you should get the second serving.

PoiuyWired 03-07-2007 12:38 PM

Somehow I think the Tholme bunch(Tholme Family + Vos Family) would show up in the series though. Their ending yells of a sequel. That and Tholme belongs to the type who will always be in the shadows causing big trouble for the enemies, while Vos... he is just Vicious.

HerbieZ 03-08-2007 06:36 AM

Star Wars is a pretty global thing I'd say if you bet on any TV show to air in your country, this would be it.

The Source 03-08-2007 02:51 PM

I think Star Wars is sometimes over-exposed. If the George only gets a few seasons released, I will be pleased with what ever number they produce. I just hope they don't go for a full seven seasons. Over-exposure is not good for a franchise.

One word: Stargate :D

Jediphile 03-08-2007 04:19 PM

Or Star Trek...

That's 2 words. :xp: --Jae

I agree. Even though I like Star Trek the most, I have to agree on its over-exposure. Stargate also suffers from too much tv. That brings up another topic: "Star Trek XI: Too Soon?". However, this is not the thread.
