Lucas Licensing, which had its strongest year ever last year for "Star Wars" consumer products with about $3 billion in worldwide retail sales, said it will be discussing its upcoming entertainment and marketing initiatives for the franchise with some of its 500 worldwide licensees at the show.

Among those initiatives are the first CG-animated "Star Wars" TV series slated for 2008, a live-action "Star Wars" series in preproduction, a new video game from LucasArts tied to the 30th anniversary of "Star Wars" that will be released in fall 2007, the release of the original versions of the first three "Star Wars" films on DVD singles in the fall and a new Lego "Star Wars" video game based on the original trilogy, also scheduled for fall.

Howard Roffman, president of Lucas Licensing, said the Lucasfilm division also will be looking for licensing partners for the summer 2007 release of a new "Indiana Jones" video game from LucasArts and the summer 2008 release of a new "Indiana Jones" movie.

"We're looking at the game as the equivalent of a film launch," Roffman said. "It will be a major event."

They're probably keeping something like that under wraps. I can't imagine just this game being "it" for the 30th anniversary. Especially now that all six films have been released. :)

I'm guessing they're going to do a big tie-in with the game like they have for the past two years. New movie pack, new game, new action figures...

Is this referring to the DVD release of the OUT this fall (2006), or is this yet another release slated for 2007?
