Lucas Announces 3-D "Star Wars" Series
George Lucas announced his intention to develop two new television series in the Star Wars universe, one live action and one in cgi animation. The latter will likely take advantage of Lucasfilm’s new Singapore animation facility and both new series would be set in the years between the Star Wars films Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and Episode IV: A New Hope. Lucas mentioned Peter Chung (Aeon Flux, Reign: The Conqueror) as a possible director for the project. Though Lucas mentioned how successful Genndy Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars series had been in connection with wanting to continue the animated franchise, Lucas did not give any indication that Tartakovsky or Cartoon Network would be involved with the new project.
