announce1just heard George Lucas is developing a tv series based in the star wars universe.
'Tis true. It is said to be based on how the Rebellion was formed. I dearly hope they will feature some of the old favorites: the Y-wing, Star Destroyer, adn YT-1300.
It's supposedly going to be about the 'lives' of droids. No jedi, No Luke, No Leia, No Yoda, No Emperor... and so on.
well that sounds like a complete bomb! i didnt think lucas would be that stupid!
Read the 'Tales of...' books.
I think there may just be some fun in watching this.
I checked the site I got that info on and the news bit is not there or I just can't find it. Someone said it was supposed to be set before 'A New Hope' and some said it would feature the tribulations of C3P0 sans R2D2.
Another news bit said the writing was to be much like the 'Tales of...' books where minor characters are featured.
The best books are 'Tales of the Bounty Hunters' 'Tales of Mos Eisley Canteena'. The stories tie all the small and large events together like Lando's adventure into Jabba's Palace amongst a massive plot where everyone is in suspicion of being assasinated by even their friend. The aftermath of the Rebel escape from Hoth of some who were left behind in ships unable to escape the Imperials. Stories of who the Bounty Hunters from Empire Strikes Back including an 'older' Boba Fett. Even the story behind Eve NineDeNine the twisted torture droid in Jabba's Palace.
The stories one could make from the movies are as endless as they are fascinating. Books worth reading. Hopefully after Lucas has left the series at the end of Season 1 the stories will be more in the control of writers who add real flavor to this rich backdrop.
now that would be cool .ive read some of those andthey are entertaining. i guess its still too early for facts and there will be a lot of speculation going on. Star Wars is Lucas's life work so i should trust his judgement on whatever he puts forth.
A "Tales of. . ." series would be fantastic. I'd love to see "Tales from the Empire", specifically the story about the hunt with Talon Karrde and the story "Tinian on Trial(sp?)".
The droids show has been done, though.
it was a cartoon ... a very bad one too
