"Star Wars: Clone Wars" To Finish Up

Disney is continuing to tie up the loose ends of the "Star Wars" franchise, and now are closing the curtain on Lucasfilm Animation's CG-animated series "Star Wars: The Clone Wars". In an official statement, the Lucasfilm Animation team says:

"After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we feel the time has come to wind down the series. While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we're continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content."

They've also put Seth Green’s planned official parody series "Star Wars Detours" on indefinite hold.

"Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we've decided to postpone the release of Detours until a later date."
