Oh my...Star Wars the TV Show...

Uhhhhh.......

Quote:
The Force may soon be coming to a television near you. George Lucas is planning a live-action television series spinoff of the "Star Wars" film franchise. Lucas told The Los Angeles Times he has "just begun work" on the series, which will not include the films' major characters Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader.

"The Skywalkers aren't in it, and it's about minor characters," Lucas told the Times on Tuesday.

Lucas wouldn't reveal details, but joked that the series would be about "the life of robots."

Lucas, 63, already has another television series in the works. Lucasfilm Animation has been working for months on the computer-animated "Star Wars: The Clone Wars."

God help us all.

Is this really needed? I love Star Wars but believe this show is a bomb already.

Anyone ever see the Star Wars Holiday Special? Go search it on YouTube.

It's one of the worst ideas ever put into creation. It's no wonder Lucas has such a tight hold over his franchise.

Go check it out. Warning, it may very well ruin the entire franchise for you.

I remember watching it on TV way back then.

It is so bad it's hilarious.

One of my piano books of Christmas music has "Merry Christmas R2D2" in it, from that special. Egads.

In other news...

Dear George Lucas:

Let it go. Please. Just LEAVE IT ALONE.

Sincerely,

Everyone.

seriously, is there a point when you just say you know what? I think I have enough money.

I realize that it's all about saving for your children and grandchildren or whatever but his great-great-great-great-great grandkids have to be covered as well by now...

The Clone Wars cartoon was real good. That gave me hope that there might be life left in that franchise....and actually, I'm sure there's tons of life in it, it's just a matter of Lucas letting the writers have the freedom to draw it out.

How long before the Clone Wars DVDs are released with CGI characters placed in alongside the animated character? I gave it 3 years, max.

Stupid Lucas.

I'm afraid that this is going to turn into some cheesy Saturday afternoon sci-fi show, i.e., Xena or Hercules....
