News: Panels, interview, ILM, and more

Full transcript from the Great To Be Nominated post-movie panel discussion. See how Pablo suffers so we might be properly informed?

Dutch fansite ToscheStation.nl interviews Rick McCallum about his background in film, working with George, and of course, the TV shows.

Three-part BBC series on ILM concludes with a look at the people driving the effects and a photo gallery.

Carrie Fisher one of the judges on Steven Spielberg and Mark Burnett’s On the Lot, a Hollywood-based reality show debuting in May.

The Force In The Flesh, a new book about Star Wars body art, will debut at Celebration. Doesn’t appear to be an official release, but certainly of interest to many fans.

Pre-order the Star Wars stamps now.

Thank you, Rick!

Rick McCallum speaks about the upcoming Star Wars television shows at the Saturn Awards, and busts open my least favorite rumor:

McCallum also denied rumors that the new series would focus on members of the Skywalker family, but repeated that the show will take place in the timeframe between Episode III and IV. “All-new characters,” he added. “That missing 20-year period when Luke is growing up. … Think bounty hunter. That’s all I can tell you. There’s nobody else that you’ll know [in it]. At the moment. You know, it’s still [in] really really early stages. He hasn’t really sat down to think about which direction [he’s going].”

He also said that the live-action show is about 18 months off, and the animated shorts maybe a year.

Rick spills the beans

Rick McCallum loves to talk when he does anything with Empire Magazine.

A summary of what he said:
– The TV show will be set between Episodes III and IV, will be “much darker,” and “character based.” But we still have to wait about 18 months before that starts cranking.
– George’s movie Red Tails about World War II fighter pilots is in the script-writing phase.
– George has finally approved the IndyIV script. Maybe we’ll be able to do it before Harrison Ford is in a wheelchair!
