    Entertainment Weekly followed up on it:

    'Star Wars' live-action series...still far, far away
    Mar 10, 2009, 01:55 PM | by Margaret Lyons

    Okay, well, at least another year or so anyway. Rose Byrne got the gossip wheels spinning this week when MTV News quoted her as saying her friends had been auditioning for a long-discussed live-action Star Wars television series. But EW has confirmed with a Lucasfilm rep that a casting agent in Australia is "doing some preliminary ground work, but official casting will not start until the scripts are complete." At the earliest, the series would go into production in 2010, the rep added.
    So, eh . . . it'll still be a while. I'm not really excited for it yet, so at least we've still got more Clone Wars to look forward to in the meantime.

    and we also have the Archival Edition DVDs to look forward to, with Bail Organa and Emperor Palpatine in ANH.

    2010 ain't that far away. With live-action, it won't take 18 months to produce a new episode, so they could film it and air it 2 months later, depending on whether Lucas can accept higher turnover or will throw a fit.
    Darth Vader is becoming the Mickey Mouse of Star Wars.

    The use of a lightsaber does not make one a Jedi, it is the ability to not use it.

    That depends on how effects-heavy they're going to have it, though. I doubt that much, but still, there's got to be ships and things.

    The ships and stuff are pretty easy, they already have those renders ready to go. It's the digital sets that are going to slow the show down most, but I think ILM has the processing power to do something like that.

    According to Scifiwire.com, Jay Laga'aia is talking with George about a role in the live action show. Don't know if it is the same character or a new one, but that still is fairly cool.

    I think it may also mean that they will film in Australia or NZ, which I had kind of assumed anyway.
    Please, please please let CV be on the east coast!

    Ugh, no. Jay Laga'aia is a fun genre actor, and a good convention host, but his Captain Typho was one of the weakest performances in Ep 2, which is saying QUITE a bit.
