    The Daily Mirror reports that George Lucas will be writing a 100-episode Star Wars TV series about the rise of the Empire. The only actor from the films that is to appear in the TV show, is Anthony Daniels as C-3PO.

    Yeah yeah, hurry up already. Been hearing about the damn thing since before RotS.

    While Daniels may be the only original actor from any of the movies (currently slated anyway), I hope he's not the only character to ever make an appearance. 100 episodes, 20 years of canon to fiddle with...not having Han/Chewie, Lando and Boba Fett make an appearance would be a colossal waste of the whole thing.
    For that matter...100 eps without Vader and the Emperor ever showing up would suck. McDiarmid FTW!

    On the other hand..huzzah for clones/stormtroopers.

    One of the heads of it (think Lucas but can't remember) was talking a while ago about how he wanted the actress playing the Twi'lek Jedi to act in the series, but I haven't heard anything about that... they were saying as a new character rather than the one she played in the prequels.

    100 episodes of Wookiee hugging would be preferable to, well, pretty much anything else.

    Hrm. Gotta give it a shot, but I was honestly hoping for the Rogue / Wraith squadron series.

    Oh well.

    I'm sure he's doing it for his legitimate artistic vision rather then the money.

    It's probably a sheer coincidence that he'll be taking just the right number of episodes to express that vision to make it highly profitable for syndication.

    There are certain things that you can just write off without knowing anything specific about them. Such things include commercial American beer, the Doom movie, any new Apple computer, and most of Africa.

    This TV series joins those hallowed ranks.

    As absolutely fucking horrible as 95% of prime-time TV has been for the past 6-7 years, I'm more than willing to give a Star Wars TV show a chance. I'll take a so-so Star Wars TV show over American Idol, fucking A Dancing/Skating/Fishing/etc. with "Celebrities" or pretty much anything on CBS.

    Anything is better than all the "reality" tv they keep trying to pass off as entertainment.
