George Lucas isn't planning to let the Star Wars legacy die with Revenge of the Sith after all. Let the money machine roll!
George Lucas has recently broken a couple of firsts. At his first Star Wars convention appearance for 18 years - in Indianapolis - he informed the massive audience of his continuing plans to develop the Star Wars genre.
Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith is out in the USA on May 19th, and our George is tickling the fan's fancy with promises of yet more to come.
He told the con goers that the two new series will be set between the end of Revenge of the Sith and the beginning of the first Star Wars movie.
One show will be a cartoon in the same vein as the recent Clone Wars series. The second will be a live-action series in the same style as the Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.
"We're probably not going to start that (the live action series) for about a year. Like on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, we want to write all the stories for the entire first season all at once," said George.
It looks like SFcrowsnest's prediction that Star Wars would make it to the TV series stage before the Tales of Middle-Earth concept sorted out the many and various legal wrangles of its various property holders is finally coming true.
