Return Of The Jedi Finally Getting A Sequel, But Not The Sequel You Want

A few weeks ago Seth Green and others announced that they’re working on an animated, Star Wars comedy series for Lucasfilm. Details, other than that it’ll be a comedy, have been sparse. But today IGN uncovered a couple of clues which indicate that it may actually be a sequel to Return of the Jedi. Unfortunately I don’t think it’s the sequel we’ve always wanted.

During a Q&A session, Lucasfilm Director of Fan Relations Steve Sansweet received this comment from a fan: “I would really love to see new adventures after Jedi with our favorite characters Luke, Han and Leia.” His response? “And you will, in the new animation.” So it looks like Han, Leia, Chewie, Luke, and everyone else are returning, which has to mean the new show is set after Return of the Jedi. The only thing is the show will be in the same format used by the Clone Wars cartoons and if it's the show being worked on by Seth Green that he's talking about, it'll be a comedy.

I’ve been waiting my entire life for a Return of the Jedi sequel and instead I got the prequels and now Lucas is mocking me by actually delivering a sequel and turning into some sort of wacky, cartoon comedy. Anyone else feel like they’re being Jar Jar’d?

As if to rub salt in the wound, Best Of Luck Productions offers this further revelation, reported from other comments made by Sansweet: “there was one ominous thing he said though... not everyone who dies in sci-fi stays dead. He continued by stating we'll see what he means in 3 to 4 years.” Does this mean more Anakin? Noooooooo!
