Lucasfilm developing new Star Wars TV comedy

I feel a disturbance in the force.

Variety reports that Lucasfilm Animation is developing a new animated Star Wars TV comedy series. Yes, you read correctly? a Star Wars comedy series. But really, are you surprised? If there is one thing George Lucas loves, it?s milking the Star Wars franchise for every golden drop.

I think this is the brain-child of Seth Green, known for the many STAR WARS parodies from his now-defunct ROBOT CHICKEN.

As Jar-Jar would say, “Mesa thinks ‘dis is bomb-bad.”

Still, where there’s a George, there’s a way.

Is this some late April Fools joke? Please tell me it is.

I’m hoping for a restored Star Wars Holiday Special DVD.

Star Wars has been dead to me for over a decade. Now they are desecrating the corpse. Pathetic.

“I find your lack of pants disturbing.”

(Cue laugh track)

Can?t wait to check out this train wreck.

Wasn’t Episode One a comedy?

No, Eddie. It was just a really bad joke.

I look forward to the ‘Fantastic Voyage’ homage episode where we get to meet the midichlorians.

@ Phil: I like Star Wars The Clone Wars.

If this was SOLELY Seth Green and Matt Senreich’s project, I would be ecstatic. Their Robot Chicken/Star Wars stuff has been brilliant. But the involvement of others has me less than enthused, especially when Green and Senreich have been relegated to “creative involvement”.
