Live Action Star Wars TV show and Star Wars Cartoon Comedy.

Here is an article from about the a possible live action Star Wars TV show.

Last year, George Lucas said the long-discussed Star Wars Live-Action series was on hold, stating that the difficulty was in making the series for a reasonable price. This week, in a new interview with Attack of the Show, Lucas was asked about the status of the series, and replied, "It sits on the shelf. We have 50 hours [written], and we're just waiting to figure out a different way of making movies – a different technology that we can use that will make it economically feasible to shoot the show. Right now, it looks like the Star Wars features, but we have to figure out a way of making it for about a tenth the cost of the features, because it's television. And we're working toward that and we're continuing to work toward that and we will get there at some point."

It's not clear what Lucas is referring to when he talks about a "different way of making movies" exactly – new, affordable special FX techniques? More realistic digital sets? But the Star Wars creator does go on to say, "It's just a very difficult process and obviously, when we do sort of figure this problem out, it will dramatically affect a lot of movies, because a lot of movies, features now, that are costing 150, 200 million dollars, we'll suddenly be able to make them for 50 or 60 million dollars."

Lucas said some similar things about the challenges of making a live-action Star Wars series when I interviewed him last September, but was confident it would happen eventually, as you can see below.
