George Lucas punches dead horse in the ribs!

17 10 2007

… Or something. Makes for a more sensationalist headline than “flogging”. But that is exactly what the Creator of the Star Wars series of movies is doing, with his announcement yesterday that he plans to work on a TV series based on the movies, involving some of the lesser characters from the films. I don’t know if he was joking (hard to gauge tone from printed text) when he said

it’s about minor characters (…) the life of robots.

5 years of C-3PO and R2? Well that doesn’t sound crap at all Mr Lucas, get the funding together, sketch out some ideas and make a pilot! Lets do it! (Again, hard to gauge tone).
