TheForce.net received word from the Directors Guild of America where George Lucas was a guest speaker. The “Star Wars” creator talked about Lucasfilm’s upcoming projects. Here’s a clip:
He’s very excited about the animated 3D Clone Wars TV series. He is trying to recreate the ambiance of a SW film in cartoon form “there won’t be anything on TV like it” it’ll be “smart ass comedy with contemporary humor.” It won’t be dealing with the Skywalker story. The emphasis is on freedom to portray anything they feel like; for instance some episodes are just about clonetroopers, another features as the main character Kit Fisto. He’s going to make 100 episodes, doesn’t have a network yet.
The live action series is still a few years away, no character decisions have been cast in stone. He did say that each show will be a different character.
IESB.net also got a chance to talk to Lucas and he revealed more about the animated show:
He tells us about a new character we will see in the upcoming animated series that takes place during the Clone wars. Her name is Osoka (this is a phonetic spelling, after all, with Lucas and his spelling magic it will probably be Osaakua or something like that), she is a young Padawan learner, it’s her first assignment and she’s very young. she’s a little Togruta, the same species as Shaak Ti from Episodes II and III.
