George Lucas revealed to Fox411.com that he's thinking of making two new hourlong live-action Star Wars TV films. "But they won't have members of the Skywalker family as characters," he told the site. "They will be other people of that milieu."
No, no, no! The whole promise of post-Ep III Star Wars was that Lucas wasn't going to be involved anymore. He says this like the problem is we don't like the Skywalker family. Look, even Hayden and Jake would have been . . . tolerable if it wasn't for Jar Jar, the podraces, the midiclorians, the ridiculous plots, etc.
My only hope now is that somebody manages to subvert it and make it camp. Imagine Jar Jar teamed up with Ewoks and Wonder-R2-D2 (he flies! He shoots fire! And just LOOK at that tomato!) and turning in an Inspector Clouseau performance.
