Should we be shocked? Announced 5 years ago by George Lucas, it seemed to come to a reality once a casting call started to happen last summer. Well, now comes official word that it's on hold, once again. Who wants to watch a the show anyway that will not star Darth Vader, Palpatine, or any Jedi characters of the films, as stated by the creator himself.
With no script (guess he's been drinking a lot of wine all this time at his ranch), and budget woes. What? Lucas can't afford a TV show? (Stop eating) Let's be honest here, he's lost ideas for the show. He even admitted to making up 70% of the film episodes 1-3 while making them, and look how they turned up. Gave us Jar Jar and have become late night matinees on TV. Steven Spielberg was the one who came up with the climatic end in episode 3, and that's not saying much either!
