Yesterday, Lucasfilm issued a press release revealing plans for an unusual new Star Wars TV series. Building on the success of high-profile parodies from the Family Guy and Robot Chicken crews, the Lucas camp is planning a sitcom series based on the famous galaxy far, far away....

Lucasfilm promises a "playful and irreverent" tone, something that will likely find parallels with the Star Wars treatments seen in the two themed Chicken specials. Via.

IESB has exclusively learned that George Lucas is currently in pre-production on yet another Star Wars animated series. The key demographic? Pre-School to Kindergarten aged children, yes, the Star Wars: Galactic Heroes will be gracing televisions very soon. The latest from Lucasland a.k.a. Skywalker Ranch is that a director has been brought on board to direct the new series based on the popular line of toys. The working title for the TV series is believed to be Squishies. Via.
