We knew ‘the Maker’ George Lucas had two TV projects in mind after Episode III – one a new animated show — CHECK

the other a live action TV series.

MTV is now reporting that Lucas has begun casting the new show!! woohoo!

According to Lucas, the show will focus on minor characters from the saga and be set in the time period between “Revenge of the Sith” (Episode III) and the original “Star Wars” (Episode IV). The action will follow the Rebel Alliance as it slowly gains strength against the Empire. There will be Stormtroopers, but no Jedi or Darth Vader will appear on screen.

This is the period covered in Books and comic books as the Rebellion. It’s an awesome time period and one that has so much richness in it that can be explored.

Think about it the entire Galaxy has lost its freedom. The Jedi are dead. What’s a regular person to do? Go become a moisture farmer on Tatooine?

I’m not sure how Lucas & Co think this is going to retain viewership from mainstream audiences. I’m a big Star Wars fan, but even as far as I’m concerned, there is no Star Wars w/out Jedi. A space opera w/ fighter jets and drone-like stormtroopers is not remotely original or rare– why take out the elements that make Star Wars unique and loved by the masses?

Id love to see the 20 something yrs between episode 3 and 4. There is a huge space that could be filled with alot of awsome stories and new characters to become fans of.
