Star Wars: The Clone Wars is wrapping up, although how we’re going to see the remaining episodes is anybody’s guess. But it turns out that at least some of the personnel on the show will be heading to a new series.
Dave Filoni, supervising director, let it slip that apparently Disney isn’t going to let Star Wars just go off the air:
“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.”
Of course, what kind of series might be taking root at Disney is pretty much anybody’s guess. But it also seems incredibly unlikely that Disney is going to spend billions on a property to use it only for a movie series and maybe a couple of rides.
Although considering what happened the last time Disney developed a good series off a movie they owned, hopefully they’re a little more patient next time.
