". . . it'll BE like a 'Western' in SPACE!"
surprise

I'm looking forward to this because I'm hoping Lucas won't be that involved.

Yeah, the less that Lucas actually has to do with the series the better. The Clone Wars cartoons were a thousandfold better than the prequels. If you just hand off the material to someone else to write and direct Star Wars shows then it should actually be pretty good.

From the article:
Quote:
It would cover the 20 years in the life of Luke Skywalker growing up that remains a mystery to most film-goers.

McCallum said there would be "a whole bunch of new characters" and the series would be "much more dramatic and darker".


Hmmm... When I first heard this story about when Episode Three came out, I'd heard two different series were in development. One an animated series about Luke as a kid. The other would be about characters not from the movies and would be live action. Personally, I wasn't all that excited about the Luke show, mostly because what made the story of Star Wars compelling was that Luke was a farmboy thrust into a much bigger world. Giving him all sorts of thrilling adventures as a boy cheapens the whole series. Not that they could be cheapened any more than Episode I and II already did. Oh well, if it's a good show I'll forgive them but I don't think I'll get excited about it.

On the other hand, I was looking forward to a live action show about characters in the Star War's universe. It would be a fresh start and they could go anywhere with them. Imperial officers questioning loyalties, bounty hunters hunting crooks, smugglers, last remaining jedi, etc. I figured they'd probably eventually even make Episodes VII, VIII, IX with those characters or their descendents. It would be glorious. A new hope, even.

I believe the way this piece is worded is misleading.

Its about the 20 years when Luke is a kid. Not about Luke during those 20 years.

It's already been established that characters we know, with the possible exception of a few bounty hunters, will exist in cameo only.

Hmmm, so it will be about moisture farming then!

I think it's a little over-ambitious to be planning four seasons of a series before you have things like cast, writers, crew, a script, or a completed episode. It's setting yourself up for a fall...

But hopefully it will great.

Clone Wars WAS CGI. All vehicles etc were cg. I'm thinking the entry is an incorrect interpretation of some press releases.

Didn't know CW was CGI .... guess I do now.

From the IMDb boards (on both entries) it looks like these are completely new projects. The CGI series is supposedly done in the style of the Final Fantasy fliks. That should mean no cartoney look.
We'll know for sure when aug/sep 2007 rolls around
