On Monday and Tuesday night this week (May 23-24) the G4 networks prolific flagship series Attack of The Show has scored interviews with The Maker, George Lucas himself. In last night’s interview Mr. Lucas, accompanied by Disney’s Tom Fitzgerald, discussed with AoTS host Kevin Pereira the newly revamped Star Tours ride located at Disney’s theme parks.  In what appeared to be a pre-taped (but I don’t know that) interview they discussed at length the complete reboot of the ride.

After the interview concluded on Monday’s show, AoTS co-host Candace Bailey teased tonight’s interview “part 2” by adding that there would be information about the long awaited live action Star Wars TV series, announced by the most unimpeachable source of them all, George Lucas himself. I’ll give you both interviews below.

Yes, you heard him. Sadly the live action show is on indefinite hold while LFL solves budgetary issues, despite having fifty hours of the show on the shelf. That makes me sad. He did say they hoped to have it solved soon and be back in production.

  1. Great reporting, Rev!

  2. Thanks DLE. I think at this point, given that both George and Tom are wearing the same shirt for an interview that was supposed to take place the next day, that it is safe to say it was all pre-recorded.

  3. Hey Rev, check out this article from i09 about the live action series: http://io9.com/5806117/no-george-lucas-does-not-have-50-hours-of-a-live+action-star-wars-tv-show-in-the-can

  4. I thought it seemed pretty unlikely that they has 50 hours of completed episodes myself. You would think some word would have leaked out about who was starring in it or where it was being shot. When I wrote the blurb I tried to use the exact expression GL did when he said he had 50 hours “on the shelf” for just that reason. I didn’t want to speculate what that meant. A lot of other places decided that meant completed episodes. Now we know he just meant 50 episodes scripted. Good catch DLE.
