    Of course we can. Lucas has been pimping out the corpse that was Star Wars ever since he turned Return of the Jedi into The Muppets Take Endor.

    I was very unhappy when I heard the news of this sitcom until I saw it will be made by the same guys who make Robot Chicken. Their Star Wars episodes were pretty damn funny. So I'm reserving judgement for the time being.

    Oh...Seth Green? Hmmmm...very interesting. That leads me to believe this will be more of a Family Guy/Futurama type show. If anyone can get it to work, I think Seth is the guy tbh. I'm not a fan of "cartoon Star Wars", but I am a fan of Seth's work. It will be interesting to see what he does with it.

    Link here btw http://www.virginmedia.com/movies/movieextras/top10s/how-george-lucas-killed-star-wars.php

    Have to say that when i saw who was writting the script i thought well maybe, but then i saw it was to feature characters from the films i switched to well maybe not

    Article also poses an interesting proposition about the digital re-releases on dvd and what will be next now that blu-ray is about and the great Lucas has his eye on Avatar 3D.  Will that re-re-re-release of Empire Strikes Back where every character has been replaced with an Ewok finally make it only in 3D, let's hope soimage

    Also have to wonder what it holds for the future of star wars mmo's since LA seems determined to target everything at a younger and younger audience.  NGE to SWTOR to the clone wars mmo.  Will we be seeing an mmo based of the new 3-5yr old series?  Will they be releasing star wars birthing pools with waterproof screens and keyboards so you can feel the goodness from the very day you are born?

    Nothing has changed, Lucas targeted the original Star Wars for 10 year olds, he has said it many times.

    That's why everything since the original series, that Lucus had imput on, has sucked. Because that gritty, dark, almost film noir style of the first two movies wasn't what he wanted, he wanted more special effects and puppets. They need to muzzle Lucus and keep him away from anything starwars.

    Yeah, but everyone else who works on Star Wars pretty much screws it up too.

    The only good Star Wars game in the past 11 years was "Republic Commando" because it HAD NO JEDI IN IT and it wad DARK AND GRITTY.

    Beyond that.... everything is just rehashed tripe. I'm sorry, but Knights of the Republic was the exact same story as the original trilogy, it wasn't as ground breaking as everyone likes to think.  Standard Bioware game, it was.

    Republic Commando.... and... thats been pretty much it.

    Best Star Wars games so far have been Tie Fighter, and the original Dark Forces, IMO.

    Lucas may have targeted the original Star Wars for ten year olds but luckily, the directors and writers who made the first two films ignored him and crafted the film for teenagers and young adults. Unfortunately, they did such a good job that the films were roaring successes and Lucas got enough money to take back control of the movies. As a result, those he made subsequently were horribly dumbed down.

    Either you, or your sources are getting the term 'sitcom' wrong.

    A sitcom is like Seinfeld, rarely do two episodes lead into each other, and each is based on a few select 'situations' that are meant to mock modern life (for the most part). I guess Star Trek walked a thin line where most episodes where stand-alone stories, but by all means this SW show is going to be like Battlestar Galactica, with an ongoing central plot. I just cannot see some college drama of kids in a Jedi institute talking about useless crap, but I would not be surprised to see it at some point.

    When did Star wars ever made anything "mature"?

    Star wars have always been aimed for 15 year old kids. Lucas later movies do suck badly but the problem here is not that he isn't mature or aimed at the right age, the problem is that he thinks special effects are more important than a good script and that he forgot what made him famous in the first place (that would be stealing ideas from cowboy, samurai and WW2 movies in a very good way).

    Just look what he did to Indy...

    The show is a comedy, and likely will be centered around what funny "situational" humor can happen to random inhabitants of the Star Wars universe each week.  Like extended versions of the Robot Chicken sketches.  Think of the one where the architect gets his hand cut off because hisfriend was screwing around.

    I have feelings it'll be mediocre at best, for the time being I catch the Star Wars: Clone Wars CG anime from time to time- Shak'ti is cute.
