Just a quick word on Tatooine in the LA TV series, I came across this a few weeks ago:

Great show, as always guys. Already anticipating SDCC announcements big time, but your show just puts me over the top with eagerness for whatever news is going to come our way. Keep up the good work.

Hey, folks - great show as always. One thing I'd like to mention, though:

Don't trust everything IMDB says. Everyone knows that GL is making a live-action series, so it's easy for IMDB to just throw out the title and add a few likely names, whether they're true or not. John Williams wrote the theme, so his name will go up right away. Anthony Daniels has always voiced C-3P0, so they add his name whether or not he's even been approached. There have been mentions that Boba Fett might be involved, so IMDB shows the last actor to play Boba Fett, even though the role might be recast, as George likes to do.

How do I know this? Because every time there's a new Muppet production, IMDB gets all the facts wrong. They'll list Frank Oz as playing Miss Piggy and Fozzie Bear, even though Oz hasn't worked actively with the Muppets in nearly 10 years. Every new production lists "Kermit the Frog/Abraham Smollet," even though that was only the name for Kermit in Muppet Treasure Island. Sometimes even Michael Caine gets listed, though he hasn't worked with the Muppets since the Christmas Carol movie!

My guess is that GL will stick to his 3-year plan:

1977-1980-1983-1996 (Shadows of the Empire)-1999-2002-2005-2008 (Clone Wars).

Based on that, I think the live-action show will premiere in 2011. Because of the long lead time that Lucas needs for the special effects, though, pre-production could start any time.

Those are just my thoughts, anyway. Keep up the great work! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/smile.gif

I agree; I think I had previously mentioned this, but John William's appearance in the listing is most likely due to the pervasiveness of the SW theme in all SW projects, earning him a credit in any project set in the GFFA, wether he actually writes new music or not.

P.S. Regarding the director's cut for Clone Wars episodes - it's not that unusual for a show to run a few minutes longer than intended. That doesn't mean Filoni & co. were planning full 30-minute shows; but sometimes scenes get added and then other scenes need to be cut to make room, or what have you.

I would expect probably a minute or two of extra footage in a handful of episodes, as opposed to a rougher "PG-13" cut or a full 8 minutes extra every episode.

Of course, I could be wrong. But I'm basing this on what I've seen happen in the past. Anyway, thanks for letting me share my thoughts! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/cool.gif

P.P.S. (last thing, I swear)! http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/wink.gif

Jason, the character that you were thinking of ("I wrote a song about it! Like to hear it? Here it go!") was not from "Mad TV." The character, whose name was Calhoun Tubbs (David Alan Grier), was actually on "In Living Color." http://threads.rebelscum.com/images/graemlins/grin.gif
