Briefly talking with Fox News this week, Lucas confirms he plans to make two more live-action films set in the “Star Wars” universe.
Not so fast fan boys, this is no major Summer blockbuster on the way – rather two, hour-long each, made for television movies which “won’t have members of the Skywalker family as characters. They will be other people of that milieu.”
No word either on what channel they will air. Lucas is currently preparing the “Clone Wars” animated series and the upcoming fourth “Indiana Jones” film.
Asked about the rumor that Shia LaBeouf will play the son of Karen Allen in the fourth Indy, Lucas deflected – “I can’t say.” Indy’s dad has a small role in the script, and if Sean Connery doesn’t return he will be excised.
Clone Wars is scheduled to air in 2008, and the live action “Star Wars” series remains scheduled for 2009.
