God: "nothing on TV quite like it.”

At the Museum of Television George Lucas spoke briefly about the upcoming animated 3D Clone Wars series, describing the Cartoon Network’s earlier series of Clone Wars shorts as a test. He said that the upcoming animated series would “create the ambiance of the movies in cartoon form,” noting that there is currently “nothing on TV quite like it.”

God said his objective with the series was to “create a pretty good adventure, breaking all the rules.” He described the upcoming animated series as “episodic.” “We don’t have to deal with the Skywalker story,” he said. “There could be some episodes that have nothing but Clone Warriors in them.” Continuing, he said he would produce 100 episodes of the animated Clone Wars series, “then make a deal to show them.”

When asked to discuss the characters his upcoming live-action Star Wars series would focus upon, God said that project was still “years away.” He also suggested that a “second animated series” might be produced before he got around to the live-action series. “It’s one show that splits up into four shows,” he said, “and each show will deal with a different character.”

Finally God said: “For me, the future is TV, the odds are so great, the risk is so high. I just want to have a good time.”

And without a doubt; so will we.

You have to wonder if, once again, CGI characters will give a more convincing portrayal than Hayden in EP. II?

An animated fluffy toy would be more convincing than EpII Hayden. Thankfully he redeemed himself later "I HATE YOU!"
