Lucas Talks Clone Wars Movie
George Lucas has said that he will be releasing a Star Wars: Clone Wars feature length movie before the the television series.
As for The Clone Wars movie, Lucas said, “We looked at it on the big screen and it looked so beautiful and great that we said, ‘Gee, we can make a feature just like this.’ So we did and got all the people, got all the stuff and said, ‘Let’s make a feature.’”
Lucas has said he will do 100 episodes of The Clone Wars, and noted, “We have one year finished, we’re in the middle of the second year. I’ve written the third year. We expect this to go on for at least five or six years.” Lucas also noted that the animated series will be presented in widescreen.
Both Star Wars series are being completely independently produced by Lucasfilm, with Lucas only recently making a deal to air The Clone Wars on the Cartoon Network. When he was asked about putting so much work into the shows, including future seasons, without knowing he had a commitment for them to air on a network, Lucas replied, “Yeah, well I’m going to do a hundred shows. I’m going to do it no matter what they do, so obviously, I want it to stay on the air a long time.”
