CLONE WARS Developer Says New Animated STAR WARS Show On The Way

It's not all bad Star Wars news these days. The supervising director for Star Wars: The Clone Wars says he's staying at Lucasfilm Animation to work on a new animated series.



Star Wars: The Clone Wars supervising director, Dave Filoni,says there's a new animated Star Wars program on the horizon. The interview, conducted with RebelForceRadio.com was conducted after the news of massive layoffs so rest assured something is in the works. It appears Disney is merely looking to put their own identity on Star Wars rather than do away with animated ventures all together. Said Filoni on the layoffs, "It’s a function of our industry… It’s not my favorite part. You can luckily grow things and bring on many talented people, but there become times when you have to shrink things as well. We happen to be in one of those times right now, but that just paves the way, hopefully, for new things and new creativity in the future."

Regarding the new series, Filoni shared that things are still in the early stages. "At this point, I am involved in some early production discussions and exploration of what we’ll be doing with Star Wars animation in the future, which is really exciting for me and I have some friendly faces around me, of course, that are helping me on the project. So it’s a transition time, as I’ve said before, and I think it will lead to an exciting time and hopefully I’ll see things grow again.”

No details on who the characters would be, whether it would be a continuation of The Clone Wars or even where the new series will take place in the Star Wars timeline. But there's SOMETHING coming down the pipeline and I'm sure we'll be hearing new details sooner rather than later.
