Star Wars Comedy Cartoon In The Works?
George Lucas should really learn not to pick at scabs, they’ll only get worse. After inflicting the last Star Wars trilogy on us, he’s decided that what the world needs is a comedy cartoon set in the same universe.
He’s teaming up with Seth Green and Matthew Seinreich, the creators of Robot Chicken, to create an animated show which will feature a lighter side to the force.

Seinreich added, “”We’re going to pull back the curtain of some of those behind-the-scenes shenanigans.”
