BBC NEWS | UK | Northern Ireland | Star Wars TV 'saviour for fans': "With Rick McCallum (Producer of Star Wars for those that didn't know) saying they are going to be making over 100 hours of a new Star Wars TV show.
So that's what the BBC is reporting. Oh man at least 100 hours of new episodes. My god!!! LEt's see we've already got the Animated series, 6 films, enough making of's to throw us into a coma, and now 100 hours of a TV series that's going to be released of Star Wars!!! I'm going to have to go on sick leave for 2 weeks just to make a decent Star Wars marathon...
On the other hand Lucas at the same time is saying that Big Budget films are doomed. "The market forces that exist today make it unrealistic to spend $200 million on a movie. Those movies can't make their money back anymore. Look at what happened with 'King Kong.'"
But what I think is the kicker is when he says, "it's no accident that the "small movies" outclassed the spectaculars in this year's Academy Awards. Is that good for the business? No — it's bad for the business. But moviemaking isn't about business. It's about art!" Right Luke! It's about Vlogging and the force is with us!!! I can't wait for the first multi-million dollar vlog. That would be hilarious.
