‘Star Wars’ cartoon to reunite Luke Skywalker & Co.

Luke Skywalker

An animated series launching in the next three to four years will follow the further adventures of Luke Skywalker, Princess Leia and Han Solo after their last film appearance, 1983’s Return of the Jedi.

Lucasfilm fan relations director Steve Sansweet confirmed the cartoon at the C2E2 convention this past weekend in Chicago.

“Not everyone who dies in sci-fi stays dead,” Sansweet was quoted as saying about the project by GeekTyrant. To find out what that means, he added, you’ll have to wait a few years.

It is not yet clear whether the series will draw upon the vast catalog of Expanded Universe material already developed in novels and games for that era — or indeed whether it is related to the Star Wars-themed sitcom recently approved by creator George Lucas from the creator’s of Adult Swim’s Robot Chicken.

If the series were to debut in 2013, that would put it on track for the 30th anniversary of Return of the Jedi.
