Ever since Disney acquired Lucasfilm back in October 2012, a number of Star Wars projects including Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Detours, and the 3D up-conversion and re-releases of the Star Wars Saga have all been canceled or postponed. But it seems like the people behind Star Wars: The Clone Wars are already looking at starting a new animated project for Disney and Lucasfilm.
In an interview with IGN.com, Star Wars: The Clone Wars supervising director Dave Filoni says that his team has some new and exciting stories in development for a new animated series. Filoni didn’t say whether or not the new animated series would follow the narrative and characters established in Star Wars: The Clone Wars, but it sounds interesting nevertheless. Filoni revealed:
At this point, I am involved in some early production discussions and exploration of what we’ll be doing with Star Wars animation in the future, which is really exciting for me and I have some friendly faces around me, of course, that are helping me on the project. So it’s a transition time, as I’ve said before, and I think it will lead to an exciting time and hopefully I’ll see things grow again.
