Saturn Awards in Universal City, California.


Rick McCallum, Lucas producing partner, told SCI FI Wire that future projects are a ways off, including a live-action TV show that is at least a year and a half away.



LIVE-ACTION SERIES

McCallum: "Star Wars TV series, probably not for a couple of years" - "George is starting to start the basic concept of it. ... We're interviewing writers. We're seeing a lot of people. But I'd say it's not going to be happening for another at least 18 months." - "All-new characters".


McCallum also denied rumors that the new series would focus on members of the Skywalker family, but repeated that the show will take place in the timeframe between Episode III and IV.


McCallum: "That missing 20-year period when Luke is growing up. ... Think bounty hunter. That's all I can tell you. There's nobody else that you'll know [in it]. At the moment. You know, it's still [in] really, really early stages. He hasn't really sat down to think about which direction [he's going]."



CLONE WARS CGI

Lucas is also planning a new run of Clone Wars-themed animated shorts.

McCallum: "There's an animated series being done right now, so that probably also won't be ready for another year" - "But, yeah, that's looking really good."



STAR WARS 3D

McCallum added that 3-D theatrical versions of the Star Wars movies are still planned.

McCallum: "We're working on that," he said. "It's just a question of how many theaters will be out there. Hopefully, by the end of this year there will be about 1,500 [3-D] theaters. We need about two or three thousand before it makes it, you know, viable for any of us to go out in 3-D. But that looks like it will happen sometime in the year 2007, so hopefully we'll be happy about that."

I would love to see The Adventures of Boba Fett.

Who wouldn't...

Which would most certainly have to mean that Rick McCallum doesn't have the slightest fucking clue where it's going.
