Josh from MTV.com sent us this heads up on an interview they posted with George Lucas. In it George mentions several new pieces of information in regards to both the animated and live action television shows. Information that we've never heard until now from anyone at the Lucasfilm camp.
"In 2007, Lucas will begin work on a live-action "Star Wars" show set during the 18-year gap between Episodes III and IV. "We haven't started yet; I start that next year," the filmmaker said, adding that he's determined to write an entire first season before shooting begins on the show that will star "background" characters from that time period.
"None of the Skywalker story, none of that stuff is in there," he explained, shooting down any depiction of a young Han Solo acquiring the Millennium Falcon or running with Lando Calrissian. "It's completely different. The animated series has got all the characters in it. The one that comes after, the live-action one, is with people who were in 'Star Wars,' but they're not the main characters."
Lucas said the plot will be steered by characters such as Tie-Fighter or Rebel pilots, most only briefly glimpsed in the six "Star Wars" films."
As fan of TheForce.net Richard Thomas put it, "Sounds like Galactica in the Star wars Universe". Click here for the full read!
