George Lucas Talks Everything Star Wars

Back in 2005, George Lucas announced that the Star Wars universe would get two television shows: an animated show (The Clone Wars, which hit the big and little screen in 2008) and a live-action show set between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. Now Lucas finally explains why the live-action show "sits on a shelf." During an interview with G4TV, Lucas explained that 50 hours of a Star Wars television show are waiting ... for a new way of making movies. Moviemaking is very expensive, and Lucas wants to bring the same quality to the television show, but at a fraction of the price. The good news is Lucas plans on revolutionizing the way movies are made, which WILL cut the cost to a fraction of what it is now. Say what you want about the most recent trilogy, but Lucas has always been a leader when it comes to filmmaking technology: One of his companies, Skywalker Sound, has provided post-production sound services for over 500 movies and television shows;

As explained earlier, all Star Tours Starspeeder 1000s are flown using the latest AC-series Tour Droids . And in fact, our initial plans were for our flight to be piloted by AC-38 better known as “Ace.” However, in discussions with George Lucas during the course of our production, we decided to take the story in a very different direction. So…while AC-38 is supposed to be our pilot, by the time we actually take off, the droid sitting in the pilot’s seat will be none other than…C-3PO! It’s one of the biggest changes and surprises in the new show. “Professional grit stopped me from yelling the glorious new storyline from the rooftops,” said Anthony Daniels recently. “It’s fun having secrets like this, waiting to share them at the right time.” You’ll see just how Threepio becomes our pilo

Marvel Characters To Invade Disneyland In Near Future?

Marvel Characters To Invade Disneyland In Near Future? Hero Complex spoke to Bob Iger, president and CEO of Walt Disney Co., on Thursday at the blue-carpet event at the premiere of " Disney's World of Color " at Disney's California Adventure, the Anaheim theme park that has struggled to find a strong identity since opening in 2001. Iger, whose company took over Marvel in a $4 billion deal January, seemed to chew on the question a bit, but in the end, he stayed safely vague in his response. "We're just now considering all of our different options, so it would be premature to say when or where in the parks you would see Marvel characters -- but I think it's safe to say that you're going to see some of those great Marvel characters walking around in the future."
