    Star Wars TV Show About Luke Skywalker - debuts 2008

    http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/entertainment/4808746.stm


    Star Wars series to run and run

    The TV series spin-off of the Stars Wars film franchise will run to at least 100 episodes, according to producer Rick McCallum.

    He told BBC Radio 1 the writing team would soon be meeting to start on the project, which would begin filming in 2008 and be ready the same year.

    "Hopefully if we can make it work and everybody's excited and watches it we will keep on going," said McCallum.

    The series will be set between episodes three and four of the film saga.

    It would cover the 20 years in the life of Luke Skywalker growing up that remains a mystery to most film-goers.

    McCallum said there would be "a whole bunch of new characters" and the series would be "much more dramatic and darker".

    Huge franchise

    He added that it was unlikely any of the stars of the movies would be involved in the TV series.

    Star Wars creator George Lucas has just completed writing the script for the next Indiana Jones film and will then begin work on Red Tails, about African-American pilots in World War II.

    Following completion of that film, work will begin on the Star Wars TV series.

    There has already been a Star Wars series spin-off in the shape of the animated Clone Wars, which began as three-minute episodes before they were expanded to 30-minute shows.

    Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, released in 2005, marked the end of the end of the Star Wars saga on the big screen.

    It became the biggest film franchise in history, with the final film alone taking 500m at the box office outside of the US.

    Interesting. Note that it could be an oblique reference to that time period, not Luke's actual (presumably boring) life.

    Also, only 18-19 years of the timeline from TPM to ROTS are unaccounted for onscreen.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    If it's about Luke it won't last long, how many Boonta Eve races in his T-16 can we watch ?

    I think (hope) that you're right about it being a reference to the time period, Chux.

    Did G Lu write the script for Indy Quad ? I doubt it, I think that's a generalization as well. They probably mean that he's overseeing the finishing of it since he is the Exec Producer.

    I read that somebody else wrote the script (I don't remember who) and then G Lu 'tweeked' it, El Spielbego and Harrison will do the same.

    Frank Darabont wrote a draft at the request of Spielberg, but Lucas rejected it. GL is still playing the ego card because of the Darabont/Phantom Menace situation. So Lucas told his partners that he'd take a stab at it. We all saw what happened the last time GL wrote a screenplay (TPM ) With that as a model, Indy IV should make a great video game.

    Well I guess this is good news, although I'm not so sure if I want to watch the "Young Luke Skywalker Story."

    If that's the case, maybe he'll bump his shin at the end of the credits and say "Ow, ow, ow" over and over until it stops being funny, then long enough to make it funny again.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    This is exactly what I was afraid of... The Young Luke Skywalker Chronicles.

    It's Smallville time for Star Wars. Ugh.
