EXCLUSIVE: ‘Star Wars’ Comedy Series To Be CG, Won’t Be Set After ‘Return Of The Jedi’

Last night on the red carpet at the 2010 MTV Movie Awards, our very own Josh Horowitz got a few minutes to chat with Seth Green. This is exciting because Green is currently working on a “Star Wars” comedy series. The news, revealed back in April, was met with many complaints from the fan community. Green is quick to remind us all of just how early in the planning stages this project is.

“It’s just so early. When there’s good stuff to tell, I’ll tell you,” he said. “I don’t want to say anything. People are really dramatically misinterpreting it.” It’s encouraging to hear, but Green wouldn’t say much more. Josh asked him to set fans on the right path, but the “Robot Chicken” architect replied, “It’s too early to set you straight, that’s the worst part about it.”

Okay, there were a few facts that he would reveal. “It’s gonna be CG animation, it’s gonna be really funny and it’s gonna be ’Star Wars’ in a way you’ve never seen it,” he said. “There are some recognizable characters but it’s a huge universe, so we’re really going where all the comedy is.”

While Green wouldn’t say where that is, he did offer a little hint as to when. “Timeline… I don’t think anybody is really talking about that yet. But it’s not post-[’Return of the Jedi’].”
