Well, it's television, so it MUST be good, right? RIGHT?

My minor disappointment about the 26 episodes of Futurama not coming to pass after all is tempered by the 100 episodes of the Star Wars television series. Really. Oh, my heart's not in it.

It would cover the 20 years in the life of Luke Skywalker growing up that remains a mystery to most film-goers.

The Slashdot posters pointed this out: so, will it be 100 eps of Luke Skywalker whining, farming dirt, and pinging womp rats?

He added that it was unlikely any of the stars of the movies would be involved in the TV series.

Well, that's good news.

Star Wars creator George Lucas has just completed writing the script for the next Indiana Jones film and will then begin work on Red Tails, about African-American pilots in World War II.

Following completion of that film, work will begin on the Star Wars TV series.

Lucas is involved?
