Stop being so damned cynical. Lucas recognizes that people still want to play in this world, from the writers and artists to the fans, and so he's letting it expand more. I don't see the harm in it.

If Lucas was only about the money, he would have made the prequels 10 years earlier, and released the OT DVDs when the format first appeared, instead of waiting until 2004.

Also, the Young Indiana Jones TV series DVDs haven't come out yet because people at the Ranch have been working on very comprehensive documentary materials for every episode, which underlines the point that the show was always meant to be an educational/entertainment hybrid in reference to the various historical events in each story. A lot of Lucas's money was put into financing this show, and if I'm not mistaken it's still the most expensive TV show ever produced, as they filmed on location all over the world.

Say what you want about the quality of his ideas, but most of what drives his decisions is the desire for state of the art product, not money, however the material suffers as a result.

Nute Gunray: "I don't know. But we must find out what's going on down there."

This doesn't come close to doing justice to one of the most awfully delivered lines I've ever heard.

I miss the Star Wars cereal from the 80s. What was it-----something like "C3PO's" or something. And they'd come with a cut-out mask of C3PO or Luke or somebody on the back of the box.

Hope the series turns out as well as Young Indiana Jones did.

It's going to be very, very hard for it to top Galactica at this point. Obviously they aren't likely to go for the realism/modern political parallels as BG did, but the characters, the acting, and writing is SO strong...Lucas definitely has the money to deliver on the production values, but what about the sense of wonder? Can you blow people away on television anymore after what we've now seen?

I wonder if U2 will use the show as inspiration for the next album.

Isn't Lucas recruiting top science fiction writers to help do some stuff right now? I could've sworn I read/heard that from somewhere and writers from Galactica were most definitely mentioned.
