Two new Star Wars films not to involve Zhan? :O

Lucas had no problem opening up about some other upcoming projects, both having to do with Star Wars. He is currently preparing another series of Clone Wars -- the popular Star Wars animated series. In addition, Lucas will make two more live-action films set in everyone's favorite galaxy far, far away. These films will likely be an hour each, and will air on television, though he doesn't know on what channel (The Sci-Fi network?). Says Lucas of the films, "they won't have members of the Skywalker family as characters. They will be other people of that milieu." Very interesting...

So I guess he's making two new films. Thoughts, feelings?

Perhaps a deep sense of shame and betrayal as your childhood is brutally raped? On the plus side, more Clone Wars style animated series.

    The more star wars the better, right? I mean, if it's good, it's good, and that's great. And if not...Well, when it comes to Star Wars, George Lucas doesn't necessarily have the best reputation with the hardcore fans these days.

    I hope George Lucas is responsible for nothing other than picking what the aliens and spaceships look like. I don't want him writing it "directing" it or being within 500 fucking yards of it.

    Clone Wars was pretty good.

    More of that would be alright.

    They're one hour specials made for tv.
    That's not exactly "two new movies."

    Like we all don't know he'll just keep making these until he dies, which is never, thanks to ILM's magic. That's kind of redundant.

    Fox News is fucking stupid and so are you.

    George was obviously referring to the live action television series.

    PS. The live action series is supposed to be set between Episodes III and IV and will focus on background characters. In the past, George has stated that he will only write and direct the first season in order to set the feel of the series.

    The new Clone Wars series will be computer animated (think Pixar) and George will have complete control over the series. This new series will basically negate Tarkovsky's as George has said he wasn't very happy with his take on things.

    Yeah well George is a fucking idiot then, isn't he.

    God, Star Wars is all but ruined for me already, Clone Wars was one of the only things that gave me hope. Also, I think it's funny that most people don't realize Lucas didn't direct Empire OR Return of the Jedi. He shouldn't have directed the last three either. Fucking asshole.

    I don't see why it should invalidate the Clone Wars series, as how that only covered about 3 months of the war at the most. There is still plenty of room to tell stories in that period.

    The Jedi powers in Clone Wars were fucking retarded. Like Mace being able to wipe out thousands of droids instantly or Yoda being able to move fucking destroyers, yet straining over pillars and fighters in the movies.

    I would assume that's the reason George didn't like it.
