    After The Clone Wars end their run would you like the next Star Wars Animated series be The Dark Times with Darth Vader right after Ep III dealing with the Empire beginnings and the Jedi Purge?

    Probably not. There was going to be one (live-action) set in the early Imperial era on HBO, but it was going to be about the drug dealers and pimps of the GFFA. Seriously. What. The. Kriff?

    I could live with a series about a hot Twi'lek and her escapades.

    Yeah, but we have the Internet for that. Rule 34, remember?

    I'd like to see them incorporate Force Unleashed into a live series

    +100. Great idea. Hope they do it. There are a ton of stories to be told between Episode III and IV!

    I doubt if the live series will ever be made due to high costs.

    Also, zeph, Admiral Ackbar says that hot Twi'lek has a third lekku between her legs. It's a trap!

    Tell that to Fox who shelled out $20 million for Terra Nova.

    Doesn't Lucasfilms company doesn't have enough money to do it?

    Each episode was going to run them $1 million. They put it on hold for now until the technology presents itself to lower the cost of production. When that happens, the series will be produced.


    Also, Darth Talon? Alema Rar? Aayla Secura? Yes.

    Lucasfilm has enough money. Lots of nerds will buy anything with the gold circumscribed logo on it. It's just that, will it be profitable?


    Personally, I can't see a series about the drug dealers and pimps of the GFFA being popular. As popular as the smugglers are, once you start talking about pimps, Granny gets her panties in a twist.

    I would also like to see an animated Star Wars: The Old Republic if they don't do a Dark Times.

    I would prefer an animated series that is set after Return of the Jedi. They could introduce completely brand new ideas and characters such as the Sith who trained the Emperor, etc. It would be cool if he/she was still alive and living in the outer rim planning a even bigger take over!


    Also, I'm surprised we haven't had a time travel episode in Clone Wars. They could easily have a story where some foe goes back in time to stop Anakin before he becomes Vader and its up to Luke, etc to stop him.

    They already said who Palpatine/Sidious' master was. In Episode 3, it was revealed that Darth Plagueis was his master.

    I must of missed that. I still think it would make a good show; giving more depth to the Jedi lore. Perhaps they could introduce another faction of "force-enabled" beings?

    Lord Sidious, a.k.a. Cos Dashit, Palpatine, or Lord High Uglybutt, tells Anakin Darth Plagueis was killed by his apprentice in his sleep, and he's smiling, looking off in the distance.

    Yeah, but just be careful about the Troy Denning ones. After Anakin Solo becomes an hero, his girlfriend and brother (not the same person) go a bit nuts.


    Then Luke's fourteen-year-old son, Ben, is captured and interrogated. He resists all forms of torture, so she starts talking about "big, strong Jedi Knights" and how she'll offer him "other things" in exchange for information and


    Han Solo fights the Nazis!
