Exclusive: Star Wars Animated TV Series Details, More On Spin-Off Movies & Video Games

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6615:]]Our DC Entertainment source who has been sharing Justice League movie updates with us and more has provided us with a new batch Star Wars details.

Previously our source told us that Star Wars Episode VII might take place 30 year after Return of the Jedi and feature a disciple of Palpatine, and most recently gave us details about a possible Darth Maul spin-off movie.

The latest is in regards to the new Star Wars animated TV series as well as the direction Disney will be taking their various related media including the video games.

We know that Disney recently canceled Star Wars: The Clone Wars and closed down the LucasArts video game division.

We’re told a majority – if not all – the Star Wars related media will be focusing on events following Episode VI, which would include the spin-off movies, TV and video games.

Our source said his LucasFilm friend offered the following.

• The new animated Star Wars TV series may focus on the Rebellion taking down the remaining remnants of the Empire spread across the galaxy. It’s said to be similar to The Clone Wars in which it features a large cast of characters and doesn’t focus on a sole group (i.e. Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo).

• The spin-offs films could include original characters and may not be focused on a well known character (i.e. Boba Fett, Han Solo etc).

• However, a spin-off may possibly be set before Episode I for certain characters (i.e. Yoda).

• New video games will be post Episode VI and could be based on the TV Series being developed.

• There will more than likely be video games based on Episode VII, VIII and IX.

Star Wars Clone Wars Cancelled; New Series Announced; Detours On Hiatus

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:6052:]]Now this is a shocker as it’s been thought that the popular animated series, Star Wars: The Clone Wars would simply move from its current home on Cartoon Network to DisneyXD; however, that’s not the case.

Lucasfilm announced they are ending Star Wars: The Clone Wars and relaunching with a new animated series taking place in a different time period previously untouched by any of the films or other television programming.

Lucasfilm also announced that the Star Wars Detours comedy series, which involved Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Todd Grimes, will be post-poned.

StarWars.com made the announcement:

As we enter into an exciting new era focused on the next Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming. We are exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.

As part of this shift, we have also made some key decisions affecting Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Detours.

After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we feel the time has come to wind down the series. While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we’re continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content. In the video below, Supervising Director Dave Filoni offers a peek of what is to come in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

At Star Wars Celebration VI last year, George Lucas gave fans a glimpse at the animated comedy series Star Wars Detours from Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Todd Grimes. Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we’ve decided to postpone the release of Detours until a later date.

We are incredibly proud of the teams at Lucasfilm Animation for creating some of the most amazing animation ever produced for TV.

The Walking Dead’s Robert Kirkman Recommends Genndy Tartakovsky To Direct Star Wars

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4117:]]

While many names have been crossed off the list to direct the new Star Wars Episode VII movie in 2015, The Walking Dead creator Robert Kirkman wants to add one.

Kirkman was tweeting earlier about Star Wars – how “obsessed” he is with all the news – and wondered why the director of Star Wars: The Clone Wars wasn’t on anybody’s list.

I’m shocked I haven’t heard Genndy Tartakovsky come up in the director speculation. His Clone Wars cartoons were awesome. He’d be great!

Kirkman is also disappointed to learn about Brad Bird being taking out of contention to direct Star Wars as well, tweeting to Brad Bird:

nnooooooooooooo!!

Tartakovsky will be directing the upcoming new Popeye movie from Sony, which has a September 26, 2014 release date.

Robert Kirkman writes the monthly The Walking Dead comic book, with the TV show airing Sundays at 9pm ET on AMC.

Doctor Who David Tennant Wants To Be In Star Wars (Video)

[[wysiwyg_imageupload:4071:]]

The 10th Doctor Who, David Tennant, recently had a role on the Cartoon Network Star Wars: The Clone Wars television show, and now the actor says he would like to play a part in the new Star Wars movie.

The BBC caught up with Tennant, who voiced a droid in the Clone Wars, and was first asked if he went to Lucasflim to do the voice-acting.

“No, I didn’t. I would have loved to do that,” Tennant said. “No, I did it at a little underground studio in Soho.”

Tennant says he voiced the part over a year and a half ago, so he had no prior information on the Star Wars movies, but when asked if he would like to have a role in the new movies responded in the affirmative.

“Yes, new Star Wars films. Yeah, that would be great,” he said. “Star Wars is such a key part of my childhood, my entire life. These are the fairy tales of our era, aren’t they?”

Regarding next year’s Doctor Who 50th Anniversary?

David Tennant wished he had an answer to the question as he gets asked it all the time.

Jar Jar Binks Deleted Scene Connects To Dark Side

This should come to no surprise to any Star Wars fan.

Seems Jar Jar Binks is really part of the Dark Side!

The actor who played Jar Jar Binks, Ahmed Best, recently spoke to EW and revealed a cut scene from Star Wars: Revenge of The Sith where a conversation between the Emperor and Jar Jar Binks leads to Palpatine thanking the Gungan for helping him ascend to power. However, the scene never made it, in part due to, of course, George Lucas.

“In Revenge of the Sith, there was a scene that was cut where I’m walking down a long pathway with Ian McDiarmid before he is turned into the Emperor,” Best explains. “And Palpatine kind of thanks Jar Jar for putting him in power. It’s a really interesting scene, and it shows the evolution of Jar Jar from this fun-loving kid’s character into this manipulated politician. And it was an interesting arc for the character that I thought could have been explored, because the scene is really dark. But it just didn’t fit in the movie, which I understand. But yeah, George’s take on it is Jar Jar is now just a politician.”

The conversation that was deleted references Jar Jar Binks‘ speech to the Senate from Clone Wars where Binks, now a delegate from his home planet of Naboo, supports granting Palpatine emergency powers, which we all know leads to the rise of the Empire.

The EW article also reveals that the cast thought Jar Jar Binks was going to be a “break out character” from Phantom Menace, but due to audience reaction, Jar Jar’s part in the next two movies was diminished.
