George Lucas Turning Star Wars into Live-Action TV series


George Lucas


The famed filmmaker informed that works on the spin-off have just begun.

The Skywalkers saga may have reached its completion on the big screen, but fear not fans, there will be more tales from the far, far away galaxy to be told of.

"Star Wars" maker George Lucas revealed to The Los Angeles Times yesterday, October 16, 2007 that he is planning a live-action spin-off of the phenomenal epic space film series for the small screen. The famed filmmaker admitted he has "just begun work" on the TV series, which will focus on the minor characters of the franchise.

"It's completely different," the man stated. "But it's a good idea, and it's going to be a lot of fun to do."

Story details for the show are being kept under wraps for now, but Lucas was noted to make joke that it would be about "the life of robots." The Modesto native already has another TV series in the works as his Lucas Animation is currently prepping 3-D CGI animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars" to debut it in the fall of 2008.
