I finally had a chance to catch up with my usual source the other day. S/he has proved a bit skittish on the classified information since last year blew up so spectacularly. (Rumor has it that someone close to George is a recovering Anita Blake addict, unknown to LucasBooks, and when the word of Jaded Conquest trickled up The Maker himself squashed the book.)
Luckily for all of us, this next project is a great deal more G-rated.
The Jar Jar Binks Mysteries were originally conceived and outlined just before The Phantom Menace – and shelved in the wake of the Jar Jar backlash. Additionally, the Jar Jar Mysteries are in the running for a Clone Wars spinoff. “Dave Filoni is pushing for Ahsoka to star, but George is very keen on Jar Jar,” my source says.
