You can now rest easy, the wait is truly over.Â Star Wars fans world wide are tingling with excitement.Â Star Wars creator George Lucas has agreed to write a 100-episode TV series of the classic sci-fi epic.Â
The much-awaited series will concentrate on the missing years between Revenge of the Sith, 2005, and the original Star Wars movie, released in 1977.
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
It’s been a busy week for creative mind George Lucas.Â On Monday the filmmaker was recognized by none other than President George W. Bush for his achievement in technology.Â Lucas received a National Medal of Science and Technology for his company’s innovative visual effects in films.Â

Too true.Â I wonder if Clinton mentioned this same thought to Monica regarding the mischievous cigar…..
