Star Wars TV Series Pushed Back

About a week and a half ago I received an email stating that our articles on the upcoming Star Wars television series were now out of date due to the fact that the TV adaptation will NOT be out, or even beginning production, within a year; unlike what the first reports from Lucas had stated. We had already reported that Lucas didn't plan to go into full-blown production on Star Wars television till 2006 or 2007... but 2008?

Star Wars TV in 2008

I find it hard to talk about films that come out in 2007 let alone TV shows that are expected in 2008, but then again we are talking about Star Wars here. After being alerted to the change of release date by 'roy', I decided to see if anybody else had reported on this but came up short. So, more hoping than anything, I decided to treat the email as an uninformed joke. However, I do have my latest issue of EW, and there is a tiny little column called 'Fever Chart', that states the same change of release date for the Star Wars series. In the 'Fever Chart', this quote is ranked second from bottom [the closer to the bottom the worse the news]:

The live-action Star Wars television series won't arrive until 2008. Rush not, George.

What! For all of you Star Wars fans that had hoped for a 2006 or 2007 debut of the television series, better just place those lightsaber replicas back in their cupboards for the time being. It seems that George Lucas is still too tied up with trying to get a workable script running with production of Indiana Jones 4.

George Lucas is also still working on presenting all the original Star Wars films to theatres in glorious 3D, and the first of those should be here before 2008 [unless of course Lucas pushes these back as well].

Stay tuned for updates.
