Lucasfilm Switches Up Star Wars Plans


Lucasfilm has announced plans to forego several TV projects for the Star Wars franchise in favor of pursuing Episode VII.

After five seasons, Lucasfilm has announced plans to close out “Star Wars: The Clone Wars,” currently airing on Cartoon Network, and has decided not to pursue the previously announced animated comedy series, “Star Wars Detours.”

The shifts at the studio don’t mean an end to animated Star Wars programming though. Lucasfilm hinted at a “whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched” and also plans to continue production on new “Clone Wars” story arcs that will be available online as bonus content.
