New Star Wars cartoon is... a sit-com?

For those who do not know me, I am a huge Star Wars Fan.  Not a Fan-boy, nor fanatic… I don’t “love” everything that has been done, and you won’t see me donning stromtrooper armor or going to conventions.

I enjoy the Clone Wars cartoon with my children, but I don’t think it is the be-all end-all of SW storytelling.

I am looking forward to the Live-action, hour long series they are currently working on, though details are still slim as to when or where this will air… but the rumors are that they have written the first 25 episodes, of the planned 100, and have involved some of the writers from Battlestar Galactica which gives me faith.

 

There is a second cartoon coming later this year, aimed at pre-schoolers, based on the “ Galactic Heroes ” toy line.

Now a third cartoon has been announced:  Read the article  .

I had to check twice what the date was when this was announced, and it is April 5 th , not the 1 st .

An animated Star Wars sit-com from the creators of Robot Chicken, and writers of the Daily Show?  OMGWTFBBQ?

Well, my interest is piqued.  This means we will potentially have 4 concurrent Star Wars offerings on the air waves in the next year or two.  Hopefully it is better than the Ewok Movies…
