Producer Rick McCullum said at last Monday evening’s Empire Awards, “We’re very excited, we just, we just got confirmation George Lucas has committed to writing the Star Wars TV series.Â I guess this is the news all fans have been waiting to hear.”
I think the news all Star Wars fans have been waiting to hear would go like this, “I will be your Leia, I will come to you in the night- naked, wet and just waiting for you to command me, you giant of a man.”
Filming on the series is expected to commence next year.Â
