Family Guy’s Seth MacFarlane will give fans the first look at the show’s one-hour Star Wars tribute episode at Celebration. Joining him will be Executive Producer David A. Goodman, Director Dominic Polcino, and writer Alec Sulkin.
Remember the Robot Chicken Star Wars special rumors? Well, Robot Chicken: Star Wars does exist, and it’s running in June.
AICN has a tidbit regarding the upcoming Clone Wars 3-D show from musician Eric Riegler:
The EmCee introduced Eric, and said Eric had just finished recording some music for the Star Wars TV Series. I followed up with Eric during the intermission, and he told me the following: Yes, he did in fact record music for the series. Each of the planets has its own theme, and the one he was brought in to develop music for was patterned after Bulgaria. So, his music was patterned after an instrument (I think he called it a gaeda (spelling?), a bagpipe-like instrument played there), although he performed his music on the Irish Pipes. He said it looked amazing, and Lucas had done an incredible job of the look/feel of at least what he saw.
He also said he was told the series/his episode would be airing Summer, 2008.
Apparently Joey Fatone did a Star Wars themed tango on last night’s Dancing with the Stars. Dancing with the Stars? Ugh.
UPDATE: Video is up on Youtube. It’s set to the disco theme and his partner has a pseudo-bikini and it’s every bit as cheesy as expected.
The History Channel is airing a two-hour special on Star Wars and pop culture on Memorial Day. How convenient!
Entertainment Geekly has a ‘Spy Report’ from Lucasfilm regarding Indy IV and the Clone Wars TV show. Possible spoilers in a very general sense, but: Three new Star Wars TV shows? Riiight.
As always, remember: anything you read on some random site is very likely total bunk. Consider this: there was a Snuffleupagus in my kitchen last night. He drank all my tequila. Now those are COLD HARD INTERNET FACTS.
Starwars.com has audio of George Lucas talking about Clone Wars and the other television project at the Paley festival; Hyperspace members can download the whole hour.
IESB catches up with George on the red carpet for a quick video interview. George puts a stake through the heart of the Indy IV Natalie Portman rumor and names the first brand-new character in the animated series. Boba Fett (“still a little kid”) is “possible.”
UPDATE: A TFN reader got to hear George speak at the Directors Guild of America. He talked about the 3D series (“smart ass comedy with contemporary humor,”) revealed a live-action tidbit, and said he wouldn’t be able to make Celebration.
At the Star Wars: Behind The Mask panel at New York Comic Con, Daniel Logan revealed that he’s meeting with Rick McCallum next week, and Peter Mayhew also seems confidant. Anything’s possible…
