    I thought since it now appears to be confirmed I'd give the Star Wars TV series its own topic. :)


    Here's the latest news from IESB.net (as reported in the "Star Wars Over After Sith" topic by Borsk) ...

    Hopefully those Star Trek fools are kept well away - they've already ruined one sci-fi franchise. :(

    Kevin Smith is good at developing characters and relationships. A Star Wars tv series can't get by on special effects alone. There are far worse choices than him to control the series.

    This piece from Ain't It Cool News is really just rumour, but it is one interesting possibility to think about.

    Boba Fett is a cool bad guy because he's mysterious. I don't really want to know that much more about him. Should Boba Fett be in the show? Yes. Should he be the "star" of the show or even be in every episode? No.

    Maybe the TV series will take another minor character who was built up beyond all reason by the fans - "Aurra Sing, the Sandperson Slayer". ;)

    I'm still voting for "The Adventures of Jar Jar" or perhaps the stories from the animated Ewoks show redone in live action (they did it with Sabrina - don't ask). ;)

    but only if Jar Jar is played by Richard Dean Anderson...

    How about the "Star Wars Tales" comic book done as a TV show? It would be the best way to keep the most options open since you could focus on any characters or time periods. And it makes a good title too. They could do 1 episode stories as well as stories that span several episodes. They could even do an occasional animated episode. Sort of like Spielberg's old "Amazing Stories" TV show.

    i like the idea of having a core group of actors (3-5) that we see each week and follow along with. i do not like the idea of it revolving around the jedi or the sith. they should certainly play into it, but not every epsiode. i think it would be more interesting to see someone like han and chewie cruising around. maybe something along the lines of a kyle katarn, kind of a broken jedi.

    whatever they do, i think they should be able to visit any of the places that we know of or have seen in the movies, like jabba's palace or cloud city or wherever. i don't want something that seems like a distant relative, i want something that is more connected to the OT.

    and NO gungans

    What about tales of a jedi and his padawan or missions of rougue squadren!

    With Star Wars Tales you could do all of those things. Movie characters, EU characters, prequel period, Classic period, future period, even the ancient stuff. They could have semi regular characters that you can look forward to seeing again and again, but other stuff as well. This makes the possibilties virtually endless and would keep it fresh.

    I have a feeling they're going to keep it in a set time frame. I would imagine that the production costs would be quite a bit higher to jump around like that. But, who knows...

    TheForce.net is now reporting a quote from LucasFilm's Jim Ward in the Swedish magazine "Homevision" about an animated Star Wars movie ...

    Hmmm ... this could easily get way out of hand and follow Star Trek down the "hopeless" path. :(

    It's important to leave the audience wanting more. If they oversaturate the market with "stuff" (much like Star Trek has done), it's bound to have a negative effect. Even if it was all relatively good - too much of *anything* is not a good thing.

    For a while Star Trek was releasing a movie every other year and had 3 tv series on at the same time. Some was good and some was bad, but collectively it was too much.
