Luke’s Change: Death Star False Flag?

I knew it! I just knew it!
Sooner or later a mashup of Star Wars and the 911 Truthers would appear. And this well-done lampoon of the Loose Change documentary is called Luke’s Change. And rather than debunk any 911 theories, this seems to call Star Wars truths into question – much like the prequels and Clone Wars did. What can a poor galactic citizen really believe anymore?

Official story is subject to critique. Critique is lampooned. Lampoon becomes offiical story?

Sansweet Luke, Han and Leia in the new animated series

Not many details have surfaced about the new Seth Green Star Wars comedy series that was recently announced. However, in the IGN Theater at Chicago’s C2E2 convention, Lucasfilm Director of Fan Relations Steve Sansweet gave fans a nugget of information about what characters might be involved in the show.

During the Q&A section of the panel, a fan said, “I would really love to see new adventures after Jedi with our favorite characters Luke, Han and Leia,” to which Sansweet replied, “And you will, in the new animation.”

This should stoke the fires of fan speculation. Although the Seth Green/Matthew Seinrich (Robot Chicken) series is decidedly a comedic take on the Star Wars Universe, Sansweet’s comments are the first confirmation that it would tackle events post “Yub Nub.”

Star Wars Live Action TV Show on Hold?

RebelScum posted on a charity screening of Empire that Lucas attended on May 8. He was asked about the Live Action series and this is what he had to say.

Question: How are things going with the Live-Action TV Show?

Answer :: Lucas: The Live-Action TV Show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don’t know how to do them. Because they literally are Star Wars – only we’re going to have to try to do them – a tenth the cost. It’s a huge challenge – lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be.

New Star Wars Animated Series in the Works

Source: Lucasfilm
April 5, 2010

Lucasfilm Animation announced today it is developing an all-new animated “Star Wars” series, focusing its efforts on the comedic aspects of the “galaxy far, far away.” Featuring creative involvement from Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, creators and executive producers of the Emmy and Annie Award-winning “Robot Chicken,” as well as writing from “The Daily Show’s” Brendan Hay, the series will look at the Saga’s characters with a playful and irreverent tone. The series will be produced by Daytime Emmy and Gemini Award-winner Jennifer Hill (“The Backyardigans”), and directed by Emmy-nominated Todd Grimes (“Back at the Barnyard”).

“There are so many stories taking place in the Star Wars universe, and they don’t all have to focus on the fate of the galaxy,” said Grimes. “We’re looking at Star Wars from a new perspective; this will be a glimpse at how the rest of the galaxy is affected by the events of the Saga. There’s a lot of humor to be mined from that.”

“The Star Wars universe is so dense and rich; it’s crazy to think that there aren’t normal, mundane everyday problems in a world so well-defined,” said Green. “And it’s even crazier to think of what those problems might be, since it’s all set in a galaxy far, far away. What do these characters do when they’re not overthrowing Empires?”

Said Senreich, “We’re going to pull back the curtain of some of those behind-the-scenes shenanigans. It’s going to appeal to all ages, the way Star Wars should — but there’ll be plenty buried under the surface, as well. As Obi-Wan might say, ‘it all depends on your point of view’.”

Star Wars Live Action TV Show Has a Title

On April First ….   This news from Movie Cultist Since its announcement in 2005, the upcoming live-action Star Wars TV series has been lacking in details — a tease here, a casting rumor there, but no solid information. Until now.

Rick McCallum, who’s producing the show with George Lucas (as he did on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles), participated in a PGA-sponsored panel discussion held yesterday in San Francisco on African-American Voices in Film. (McCallum was invited because he’s currently working with Lucas on Red Tails, a movie about the World War II Tuskagee Airmen.) A friend of ours attended, and afterward he went up to introduce himself to McCallum and ask him about the rumored Red Tails reshoots.

Apparently McCallum gave him the whole, “it’s a process, but it’s shaping up well” non-answer. So our friend asked whether the Star Wars series was still coming along, and I guess this is why it never hurts to ask, because McCallum gave him a heck of an answer:

McCallum: “Great, George just gave us a new title.”

Friend: “What is it?”

McCallum (laughs): “Looks like it’s going to be Star Wars: Outer Rim.”

So. Star Wars: Outer Rim? “The Outer Rim” is the name of the territory in the Star Wars galaxy that contains Tatooine, Hoth, Dagobah, and a number of other familiar places. According to Wikipedia, the area “became a breeding ground for criminals” due to its “isolation from other worlds” — which fits with what we already heard about the project, namely that it might be about a family of bounty hunters and would not directly deal with the Jedi or the workings of the Empire.

The series will definitely take place between Episodes III and IV, though, and the Death Star was originally constructed to reign in the Outer Rim planets…so I have a feeling the gradual encroachment of the Empire will be part of the series. That’s just my conjecture, though.

McCallum has previously said that the series would go on for one hundred episodes, but later explained that the plan was to have it spin-off several series and keep things going for years. Let’s just hope they get on with it soon!
