It was a dark time for Star Wars fans. Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been cancelled, Lucasfilm Animation downsized, and LucasArts shut down. However, during an interview with Rebel Force Radio, Star Wars: The Clone Wars series supervising director Dave Filoni gave a new hope that there will be a future for Star Wars animation.
When asked if Filoni would continue with Star Wars animation, the director responded "Well, that’s my plan!” On the status of new Star Wars animation he says: "At this point, I am involved in some early production discussions and exploration of what we’ll be doing with Star Wars animation in the future, which is really exciting for me and I have some friendly faces around me, of course, that are helping me on the project. So it’s a transition time, as I’ve said before, and I think it will lead to an exciting time and hopefully I’ll see things grow again.”
So Star Wars fans have something new in the future to look forward to. Also, don't forget the Star Wars: The Clone Wars bonus content coming (hopefully) soon!
