TV Focus for Lucasarts
At a recent convention Lucas revealed that his company Lucasfilm will now be focused on television projects saying "Television is an easier medium to work in. It's more fun, there's less pressure and it's a great medium to experiment in,".
Directors and producers wanting to work with Lucasfilm will now be steered towards the television projects.
The new Star Wars live action tv show will be similar to his other project The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, likely to have a budget of up to $30 million.

Star Wars Live Action Television Series
"GEORGE LUCAS, the billionaire creator of the Star Wars films, has announced plans for two spin-off television series set in a far-off galaxy long after the final movie instalment of the space saga....
A half-hour animated series will expand on the two Clone Wars mini-series that Lucasfilm has produced for Time Warnerís Cartoon Network. The series would probably be produced at Lucasís new computer animation facility in Singapore.
That would be followed by the production of a live-action series set after Revenge of the Sith but before the original Star Wars, which was subtitled Episode IV: A New Hope."
Okay, okay so it's a little early for unofficial fan sites and the like, but i've decided to stick this site up to create a central location for news and info on this upcoming series which looks like it *gasp* might actually be happening. Although there isn't much detail at the moment (hell we don't even know what it will be called yet) small snippets are slowly leaking out, so if your interested in the project i hope this site will be of some use to you.
