A new job listing on Lucasfilm’s Recruiting website, which posts available jobs at Lucasfilm and ILM, is looking for a new Storyboard Artist to work on “an episodic TV series” according to ComicBook.com.
The listing reads: “works closely with the Supervising Director and Episodic Directors to create expressive and entertaining storyboards for an Episodic TV series. The Storyboard Artist conveys story from script through visual storytelling techniques in a 3d environment.”
The post is suggested to be an indication that another new “Star Wars” animated series is being developed by the company, and not one for the currently on the air “Star Wars Rebels” which is well established and in the midst of production on its fourth season.
Dave Filoni, who was a supervising director on ‘Rebels’ got a bonus job a few months ago as he was put in charge of “creatively overseeing future animation development”. Could that have yielded fruit this quickly?
If a new series is on the way, expect a potential announcement at “Star Wars Celebration Orlando” in April.
