Lucasfilm Making Another 'Star Wars' Animated Series

Robot Chicken Star WarsIt's not what you think. It's much worse. Apparently, a Lucasfilm representative at C2E2 confirmed that the company will be making another 'Star Wars' animated series that will serve as a sequel to 'Return of the Jedi' and feature all the original characters from the first trilogy. It will be in the same computer animated format as the current 'Clone Wars' series on Cartoon Network.

Perhaps this will be the comedy series with the 'Robot Chicken' creators that he was referring to in the past. Or perhaps it's a variation of that live-action 'Star Wars' television show that is forthcoming. Or perhaps it's just Lucas messing with the heads of any fans of the franchise even further than he already has.

Anybody who reads the original novels that serve as a sequel to the original trilogy is in for a nasty shock. Lucas has a tendency to ignore concepts that he himself didn't originate that actually enhance his franchise. It's likely that any new series will render those novels as moot as 'Galactica 1980.'

Remembering The Star Wars Holiday Special, even if we really don't want to

by Danny Gallagher, posted Nov 17th 2009 7:03PM

A long time ago (well, 31 years ago) in a galaxy far, far away (Television City isn't technically a different galaxy, unless you consider TV producers to be people who don't spend much time on planet Earth), an evil was unleashed upon the human race.

Today marks the 31st anniversary of the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special, a Christmas not-so-spectacular roasted by critics including some here at TV Squad years after it hit the air and even some of the franchise's most ardent fans.

That also includes George Lucas who once remarked at an Australian convention that he wished he could buy up all of the world's remaining copies of the show and smash them into oblivion with a sledgehammer. I wonder if 31 years from now, he'll be saying the same thing about Star Wars Episode I: The Phantom Menace?

Seven of the worst TV Christmas specials - VIDEOS

by Danny Gallagher, posted Dec 22nd 2008 2:15PM
Where would we be without the hallowed television Christmas special? We would be engaged in enthralling conversations with relatives who like to give the backstory about the gall bladder operation pictures they still carry in their wallet. We would be playing defense against every breakable item in the house while the neighbor's kids get enough sugar in their systems to power the Space Shuttle. We would not only have to muster the courage to taste Grandma's homemade rum and Kahula fruitcake, but also to pretend that we like it without our stomach turning inside out, crawling up our esophagus and out of our mouth.

Even if those scenarios will be true for you on Dec. 25, I offer you my pity as my Christmas gift. Plus, you still would rather spend it listening to ol' Uncle Hernia Scar than watching one of these holiday hams.

The folks at our sister site Cinematical are working hard to give you news and reviews of the best -- and worst -- the silver screen has to offer. Here are some of their latest musings on the latest blockbusters, indies, and everything in between:

  • If there's one thing we love here at TV Squad, it's speculation about TV shows that are being made into feature films. Cinematical gets in on the action by speculating about a possible Buffy the Vampire Slayer movie.
  • Many of you are probably still hanging out with family after the holiday. Whether your family is a basket of sunshine and puppies, or...not, you can bask in the glow of seven non-dysfunctional movie families.
  • I don't have the time to get too ranty, but I hate the idea of He's Just Not That Into You. It preys on insecurities in a very condescending way. I didn't want the book, and I certainly don't want the movie...except I love just about everyone in the cast and they have a Jason Mraz song in the trailer! Ugh. I'm probably going to see it and hate myself. Anyway, check out the trailer for yourself. Are you going to see it?
  • I'm not even a Star Wars fan, but this "Guitar Solo" t-shirt with Han Solo cracked me up. What can I say? I do love a good pun.
  • I've been hearing about this semi-secret Michael Cera movie, Paper Hearts, for a little bit, but I haven't been able to even find out what it's about. Cinematical has some info on it though, and I'm definitely intrigued.
