Wizard Entertainment has a great new post about 20 things Star Wars fans have to look forward to. Which is good, because since there are no more movies coming ... anyhow, here's an excerpt from their post:
3. CGI cone wars cartoon
(Lucasfilm Animation, Fall 2008)
If you couldn’t get enough of the Genndy Tartakovsky-directed Clone Wars cartoons that debuted on Cartoon Network in 2003, you’re in luck. In 2008, you’ll get an all-new, completely CGI series based on the same time period as the animated version.

The Clone Wars takes place between Episodes II and III during a remarkable time in Star Wars history, a time that fans have wanted to know more about ever since Obi-Wan Kenobi told Luke about the Clone Wars in A New Hope,” said Lucasfilm’s Singh. The project will come from the Lucasfilm Animation studios based in Marin County, California and promises the return of fan-favorite heroes and villains as well as never-before-seen characters. There’ll be at least 100 half-hour episodes produced, and Dave Filoni (Avatar: The Last Airbender) will supervise the direction of the series.

“It’s being produced in a remarkable CG style that underscores the action, excitement and drama, and is much more expansive and dramatically rich than the ‘micro-series’ from 2005,” Singh continued. “It’s going to be groundbreaking both in look and content.”

4. Star Wars Live-Action TV series
(Lucasfilm, 2009)
The new live-action television series doesn’t even have a title yet, but fans are already salivating for a new sci-fi program to satiate their appetite for weekly space sagas (especially since Battlestar Galactica will soon join Firefly and Star Trek: Generations in the “great but cancelled” bin).

“It’s too early to say anything about the live-action TV series, as it is in the very early stages of pre-production,” revealed Singh at Lucasfilm. All we know about the plot is that the hour-long show will be set in the expanded universe and star some minor characters, with cameo appearances from the major ones. Who, you may ask? Well, at this year’s Toy Fair we saw a teaser image that featured a close-up of Boba Fett’s helmet. George Lucas himself will write and produce the first season, and then remain executive producer and general supervisor throughout the rest of the series. Singh teased: “Hopefully we’ll have much more news to share about it and other Lucasfilm and Star Wars projects at next year’s Comic-Con!”
