Lucas Chats about Upcoming TV Projects

Bonnie Burton | September 20, 2007

In Part 1 of TV Guide’s Q&A with George Lucas, the discussion encompassed the documentary Fog City Mavericks (premiering on STARZ, Monday, Sept. 24, at 9 pm/ET), his advice for aspiring filmmakers and why Sean Connery turned down Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull.

Here in Part 2, Lucas discusses the upcoming Star Wars TV projects, the power of the Internet and the television series he was distraught to see go off the air.

TVGuide.com reports:

On the live-action Star Wars TV Series:
Clone Wars has got all the characters in it — Yoda and Anakin and Obi-Wan and the Emperor and all that — so it’s basically the movie. The live-action series is not the movie. It’s the Star Wars universe, but it’s characters from the saga who were previously minor, and it follows their stories. It’s set between movie Episodes III and IV, when the Empire has taken over. It’s like Episode IV in that the Emperor and Darth Vader are heard about — people talk about them — but you never see them because it doesn’t take place where they actually are. There are stormtroopers and all that, but there are no Jedi. It’s different, but I think it’s very exciting because I get to explore a part of that universe that I haven’t been able to explore. Once you have a saga, it’s got a lot of requirements because it’s about a particular thing in this case, Darth Vader — and so it’s his story from the time he’s 10 to the time he died. You really can’t go off that track because that’s the story. Whereas now, I can make a left turn on 10th Street and go down there and see what’s going on.

Here are some of our favorites:
Yoda
General Grievous
Shaak Ti
Asajj Ventress
