Telegraph got to interview Lucas, and the talk led directly to the new TV series. There's even a bit more if you follow the link, cool stuff about the death star and who the crew will consist of. While you decide or not to follow the link, here's an excerpt:
GEORGE Lucas is bringing the force back to Sydney. The writer-director of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith confirmed he will bring production of a live-action television series to Sydney.
"I am looking forward to coming back and working there some more," Lucas told The Daily Telegraph.
"We're going to do a live action show based on minor characters in the Star Wars series.
"It's a spin-off, it doesn't involve any of the key characters.
"It's a different world unto itself between episodes three (Revenge of the Sith) and four (Star Wars: A New Hope)."
