    Would you like an animated series based on existing books and comics?

    For quite some time I've been thinking where Star Wars should head once Episode III is finished. There is a ton of quality reading material out there in the SW EU. I think a good way to present many books in a short amount of time and on a limited budget (Lucas can't make every Star Wars story into live action) is to have an animated series based on these mediums. The SW saga would go on, and we could experience these great comics and books in a much more entertaining way. I would love to see how stuff like the Ulic Qel Droma, Kir Kanos, and Dark Empire stories translate to the small screen. What do you all think of this idea???

    GOD NO!!! It would be like all of those old bands who didn't stop, when they should have, and lost their flame.

    Couldn't agree with you more, Jonna. I remember going to see the Sex Pistols at Red Rocks a few years back. It was the saddest thing seeing a 50 year old Johnny Rotton sucking on oxygen and coughing up a lung in the middle of a song.

    I'd like it. Think of "Batman: Beyond." That's taken a more serious spin on the characters. Make them weeklong mini-series, and it'd go over well, I think.
    I predict that the upcoming Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi film will include the word "and." Multiple times.

    I'm not sure how burnedout rock bands equates with an animated SW series. SW has been a part of our culture for 25 years. I don't think a couple of years of animated shows is going to drive it into the ground.

    I can think of 2 reasons: Droids and Ewoks. I doubt George Lucas would ever approve of it.

    Burned out rock band analogy:

    Ok, how do you like to remember Van Halen? Or more specifically, David Lee Roth. Do you like to remember him as the rocking singer he was back in the 80s or as the loser drug addict who makes a fool out of himself every time he makes a public appearance?
    Yo momma. That's right, I said "yo momma".

    I think its a good idea.Maybe a animated series in the NJO or Jedi Tales area.Nothing long-running,maybe a season.It would be even better if we finally got EU figures from the series

    I've always thought this would be a great idea! It's been one of my fondest wishes! I think it'd also be a great way for Lucas to let other creators play around in his universe; something that's always seemed to be a pretty popular idea among fan circles it seems!

    I'd like to add that I have always loved both the Droids and Ewoks series'! I was highly disappointed when they were cancelled.

    The *** end of space.
    No because if that happens Star Wars becomes like Star Trek, thus it would become a neverending line of poor movies, or tv shows.
