Lucasfilm plant neue "Star Wars"-TV-Serie - "The Clone Wars" wird eingestellt

Lucasfilm hat heute eine neue "Star Wars"-TV-Serie angekündigt. Die neue animierte TV-Produktion soll in einer bislang noch nicht von "Star Wars"-Filmen oder -Serien thematisierten Zeitperiode spielen. Konkrete Details zum Inhalt will Lucasfilm aber erst im Verlauf der nächsten Monate bekannt geben. Gleichzeitig wurde die Einstellung der Serie "The Clone Wars" bekannt gegeben. Auch die schon vor dem Lucasfilm-Kauf durch Disney geplante Comedy-Serie "Star Wars Detours" wurde vorerst gestoppt. Derzeit sieht man keinen Sinn darin, "Star Wars Detours" noch vor dem Kinostart von "Episode VII" zu veröffentlichen. Hier scheint die Verschiebung u.a. einen Marketing-Hintergrund zu haben. Der Zeitpunkt zum Start der Comedy-Serie soll zu einem späteren Zeitpunkt bekannt gegeben werden.


As we enter into an exciting new era focused on the next Star Wars trilogy, Lucasfilm has decided to pursue a new direction in animated programming. We are exploring a whole new Star Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.

As part of this shift, we have also made some key decisions affecting Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Detours.

After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, we feel the time has come to wind down the series. While the studio is no longer producing new episodes for Cartoon Network, we're continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen. Stay tuned for more information on where fans can soon find this bonus content. In the video below, Supervising Director Dave Filoni offers a peek of what is to come in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

At Star Wars Celebration VI last year, George Lucas gave fans a glimpse at the animated comedy series Star Wars Detours from Seth Green, Matthew Senreich, and Todd Grimes. Detours was conceived and produced before we decided to move forward with the new Star Wars trilogy, and in the wake of that decision, Lucasfilm has reconsidered whether launching an animated comedy prior to the launch of Episode VII makes sense. As a result, we've decided to postpone the release of Detours until a later date.

We are incredibly proud of the teams at Lucasfilm Animation for creating some of the most amazing animation ever produced for TV. Keep checking for new developments on these and future projects.
