Star Wars: The Animated Sitcom?

Lucasfilm Animation is developing an all-new animated “Star Wars” series with a “playful and irreverent tone” that plans to look at the more “comedic aspects” of the “Star Wars” universe according to a press release from Lucasfilm.

“Robot Chicken” creators Seth Green and Matthew Senreich along with “The Daily Show” writer Brendan Hay will be creatively involved in the project which Jennifer Hill (“The Backyardigans”) will produce and Todd Grimes (“Back at the Barnyard”) will direct.

Cartoon Network currently airs the kiddie-aimed CG-animated action series spin-off “Star Wars: The Clone Wars”. No word on which network would air this newest incarnation.
