Lucasfilm Spy Report.

Want to hear what visitors are being told at the Presidio?




LIVE-ACTION SERIES

• The Live-Action Series aimed at 16 year olds.



CLONE WARS TELEVISION

• Show intended to be aired weekly and it will be aimed at 12 year olds.

• A second animated show will be aimed at 6 year olds.

• Disconnect between Lucas and his minions: Lucas proclaimed that this CGI Clone Wars show has a definite dark tone, a sentiment the marketing droids did not share.

• Reaction to the show not positive: Vehicles and clone troopers were rendered somewhat realistically, but other characters have sort of a Supermarionation feel to them. The general sentiment was that you can get away with this when rendering alien characters but not humans. R2-D2 looks like claymation.

• First episode will focus on Anakin and Obi-Wan versus Count Dooku and Asajj Ventress. Anakin has a young Padawan: a red Twilek girl. The plot of the first episode revolved around the Jedi trying to rescue Jabba the Hutt's son from Separatist forces.




INDIANA JONES IV

• Will follow the tone and spirit of the first and third movies very closely.

• Indy will have a young Padawan. Lucasfilm is hoping that this character will be able to carry two or three more movies after this one.

• Story will take place in the 1950s and even though the Russians were not directly named as villains, the cold war was mentioned.

• Plot would revolve around finding a paranormal artifact.

Wow, using "padawan" and "marketing droid" jokes twice? People are slipping these days.

:whateva: covers my reaction nicely. This whole "Indy apprentice franchise" thing seems very fishy to me.

Anakin has a Padawan? How exactly would that work?

A brief stint training her alá Qui-Gon/Obi-Wan before she either a) dies or b) graduates.

If any of this isn't bs, that is. :P

Hrm, all seems pretty weird to me.

A new Indy movie series? Bad artwork on the Clone Wars cartoons? Jabbas son? I don't know, I think I'll wait until I hear some confirmation, all of this is unusual, and it's making me feel uneasy.

Lucas and Spielberg have bitched about the I4 script for so long and it's been in development for more than 10 years on and off. There's no way the two would about-shift and greenlight a whole lotta new movies based on this ones long-term past.

You know, ever since I was 12 years old, I've wanted to know about Jabba the Hutt's son :what:

After Lucas publicly announced that "Television was the future" they're going to make THREE more Indy films- two of which, will not feature Harrison Ford?

Yeah- right!!

I too call bullshit on this. This sounds like it came from ....wait for it... .wait for it...... Superfuckingshadow.... *dodges all knives and bullets*.

I doubt Lucas will make more Indy films with OUT Ford. It wouldn't be Indy with out Ford. I am with Biggs that I think after Indy 4 the film franchise for the Indiana Jones is done. As Bigg said one final send off to the fans and such.

I would totally agree that this is total bullshit. I have a hard time believing that George Lucas, Rick McCallum would take as long as they have to put out junk. They opened 2 new studio complexes in Singapore and in San Fran to produce these new tv shows. I'm sure it will be something that we have never seen before, George always finds away to surprise us.

" I have a hard time believing that George Lucas, Rick McCallum would take as long as they have to put out junk."

<<CHEAP TPM SHOT>>Right, because we didn't see that happen in '99 at all.<<END CHEAP TPM SHOT>>

The Clone Wars storyline sounds like crap to me. With TFU involving Vader's Padawan I can't see something virtually identical being covered at the same time on CW, if only as a marketing problem it doesn't work. And didn't they already finish the Asaji Ventress story? Why would they turn back the clock and rehash the Tartakovsky series?

But I dunno, the Indy thing sounds plausible; Lucas is a very very shrewd businessman, and currently LFL is without a feature franchise as SW is going to the episodic format for the forseeable future. Plus this jives with some earlier rumors about Indy's bungling kid as part of the story - sort of a sendoff for Ford, and a comming into his own for the next Jones. Besides, who says it would have to A)Involve Speilberg (young Indy didn't, did it?)or B)Go to theaters? Maybe Lucas is entirely serious about TV and the home video market being the future.

And one last sendoff for the fans?! Are you shitting me? What exactly have any of you seen LFL do "for the fans"? Forget that, when have you seen LFL spend years and a hundred million "for the fans". I just don't know, planning many more trips to the well kinda feels like LFL to me.

About the Indiana Jones stuff -

(more possible Facts, Speculation + What-Not thrown into the mix)

Quite recently, while Mr. Speilberg had his ppl researching various obscure art pieces (hinting towards Paintings - Now ... Could that have anything to do w/ Dr. Jones) it was discovered that one of his very treasured pieces had at one point in time been stolen, and never recovered - Steven claims that he made the purchase from a legit dealer ... Hmmmm, Busted!!!

I don't know if others are, but I am very much diggin on the KOTOR comic series. I really wish he would do a show that takes place in that era. I think the games and comic have done a great job creating an interesting storyline that could definitely make it's own series.

Funny, I remember a clip from CIII where Lucas takes questions from the audience and one of them is "Will you consider making a TV Series based on the KOTOR era?"
"Never." And then he laughs.

I don't think it's set in stone that he won't do it, I just thought that answer was so funny. Anyone got the clip?
