Galactic Heroes the new TV Show?
« on: March 18, 2010, 11:29:26 AM »
Several outlets are reporting this to be true, you can look for a Marvel Super Hero Squad-like show with Star Wars!  So all of us hoping for a GI Joe Resolute version of Star Wars, keep dreaming!  :-\

I was hoping for a little more really, I remember in my interview with George last June he mentioned "another" television series, it'd be too bad if this is it.  :'(

It'll be aimed at little kids -- probably toddler age -- not us old fogies.

This is pretty much official confirmation of this:

I don't think this is the same thing, is it? This show looks like it's going to be more like an animated version of Robot Chicken (complete with Seth Green) and is going to air on the Comedy Channel

The GH series is supposed to be geared towards young kids and no network has been announced yet.

I see that Seth Green is working on the project but I don't see anything being mentioned as a Robot Chicken type set-up. I see it will be produced and director by a couple of good kids cartoon people Jennifer Hill (The Backyardigans) and Todd Grimes (Back at the Barnyard) the cub loves those shows. They are done really well so I don't think Seth will turn it into the foolishness that Robot Chicken is. But then again it could go that route too early to tell.

...Am I the only one that likes the Super Hero Squad Show?  I really wouldn't mind a similar Galactic Heroes type of show.

As for the Seth Green/Matthew Senreich project...color me skeptical.  They're perfectly capable of doing a good, funny show, but I'm not sure that they could tone it down to a child- or family-friendly level and still keep it as interesting.  More to the point, I am not convinced that Star Wars really lends itself to comedy and irreverence.

I don't know if this is going to be a Galactic Heroes type show, either that or they are making yet another one. I just got this email:

Quote
Lucasfilm Animation is currently developing an all-new animated Star Wars series, focusing its efforts on the comedic aspects of the "galaxy far, far away." Featuring creative involvement from Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, creators and executive producers of the Emmy and Annie Award-winning Robot Chicken, as well as writing from The Daily Show's Brendan Hay, the series will look at the Saga's characters with a playful and irreverent tone. The series will be produced by Daytime Emmy and Gemini Award-winner Jennifer Hill (The Backyardigans), and directed by Emmy-nominated Todd Grimes (Back at the Barnyard).

With Green/Senreich and Hay doing the writing, it might be a little more geared towards a slightly older audience.


Yo I'm sittin on top of the- It's more than a feeling ain't it?
I be killin damn it, I'm illin and I'm illin'
Eh eh eh meet Mr. Popular, Go get your binoculars
And see Penthouse 3 where a ni**a be
They whisperin about us
I know you haters doubt us
How you count our money we ain't even finish countin'
Pardon me I must say, I'm kinda like a big deal...

That's the point I was trying to make. This Seth Green show and the "Squishies" show must be 2 completely different things.

TOO many kiddie shows!  :-\   Wouldn't it be great to see a more adult themed Star Wars series?

Yeah, maybe some SW with blood and helmets flying off etc.

 Wouldn't it be great to see a more adult themed Star Wars series?
