With all this talk about Star Wars Episode VII, people have sort of forgotten about The Clone Wars. And that’s just as well, considering Lucasfilm are planning to "wind down" the production of the animated spin-off, with a view to something different.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars had five seasons, and while it was popular with a younger audience, die-hard Star Wars fans never took to it, but some of the Clone Wars cast might be returning for their new project. "We are exploring a whole newStar Wars series set in a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming," reads an announcement on StarWars.com. "We're continuing production on new Clone Wars story arcs that promise to be some of the most thrilling adventures ever seen." Star Wars Detours - a comedy series Lucas and Seth Green – is one of the projects that has been delayed due to Disney’s procurement of Lucasfilm. That one, though, is probably for the best. Star Wars hype has reached fever pitch recently, with Mark Hammil, Harrison Ford and Carrie Fisher all being (semi) confirmed to make a return as Luke Skywalker, Han Solo and Princess Lea in the new film, which is set for a 2015 release.

Reports also suggest a new Star Wars game is to be released, proving Disney will do everything possible to put the Star Wars franchise in every medium possible.
