... I would have been doing cartwheels at the news that George Lucas is making a Star Wars TV show. That time would have been prior to 1999 and the release of the Phantom Menace. I have never been one of those who claim Lucas "raped my childhood", only that he made three very bad movies which I cannot bring myself to ever watch again. I feel the same about Return Of The Jedi too, to be honest.
According to The Los Angeles Times, Lucas has "just begun work" on the series which will not include Luke Skywalker or Darth Vader. "The Skywalkers aren't in it, and it's about minor characters," said Lucas who apparently wouldn't reveal any more details but joked that the series would be about "the life of robots". Which kind of makes sense cos he was never any good at directing humans.
