George Lucas, the mastermind behind all things Star Wars, is at it again. Lucas has announced plans to spin off an animated comedy television series that will, in the words of Lucas’ company Lucasfilm, ”look at the saga’s characters with a playful and irreverent tone,” reports E! Online.
Recruited to the project (which is currently still untitled) is Seth Green, who has earned Emmy nominations for spoofing the Star Wars crew in Robot Chicken.
“It’s crazy to think that there aren’t normal, mundane, everyday problems in a world so well-defined,” said Green. “What do these characters do when they’re not overthrowing Empires?”
There is currently no information on which network will air the comedy.
