I would imagine Lucas would have the end-all be all say in such a contract.  If he okayed all things about the film as they went along, he'd still have control but not have to work so hard to complete the film.

He'd have control and we'd have more Star Wars.  ooh Thrawn Trilogy? =)

This article from TFN worries me:


 
 
Lucas On The TV Shows

Posted By Philip on August 2, 2005
From SCIFI.com:

"Star Wars creator George Lucas told a conference that he will turn his attentions more to television projects, including two Star Wars-themed series, Variety reported. Lucas made the comments in a keynote talk at the annual Siggraph computer graphics conference and tradeshow. 'My life's too short to become a film studio,' he reportedly said.

Lucas added: 'Lucasfilm is going more into television, but it's not a vision I'm running, either as executive producer or by laying out the groundwork.'

The first series is a 3-D animated Clone Wars series that will be made at Lucas Animation's Singapore facility. He said he'll start scouring Asia for talent and try to build up 3-D animation there. In his proposed Star Wars live-action series, he said: 'We're going do something that would normally cost [$20 million-$30 million] and try to do it for $1 million.' Lucas said he'll shoot the series on a Sony digital camera system that anyone can buy at an electronics store."

What worries me is the quote by GL where they are going to try to do something that is $20 or $30 for $1 million. That scares me. IF it drives great character development and scripts, AWESOME. Unfortunetly I don't think it will and in the end the TV show will make the series weaker.

I think what he meant to say was "If the show is done like Battlstar Galactica, it might be good."
The statement below is true.
The statement above is false.

That's what I was thinking but "done" and "don't" mean completely different things and it wasn't a typo since there is an apostrophe in there. Jessica, maybe you could type your posts in MS Word first, spellcheck/grammar check it, then copy'n'paste here. It would be greatly appreciated.

OK, move along...  move along.  ;)

Don't worry about it Jessica, it's just sometimes a post can be confusing so I'm sure it was just a mistake in haste was all.

The guidelines linked to are good things for everyone to check out around the site I think...  We don't want to be too pushy with them though so if the staff feels a need to step in and bring them to someone's attention we'll get on that, but remember to keep things friendly everyone. ;)

The problem with the TV show is that it will be coming out too late to capitalize off of ROTS and for that reason it may fail.  If we were waiting a couple of years ifor a new movie then it might  be different.  Hope I am wrong.
