I saw this video on StarWars's Twitter feed. This is some amazingly beautiful footage of Skywalker Ranch filmed using DSLR's I highly recommend reading his write up. The video is best viewed in Full Screen.
Thanks for the heads up. From that article There was some Live-Action Series Info. Since this forum needs a new thread and Lucas and McCallum invited Bloom for DSLR demonstrations "for their productions" one can conclude the series are still going forward (albeit slowly).
