Quite apart from the keen value of a Star Wars TV show, my attention was drawn by this particular quote.
"Lucas said he'll shoot the series on a Sony digital camera system that anyone can buy at an electronics store."
That opens up a whole new world of genre ideas. Imagine "Star Wars Mythbusters!"
"Now Jame E Wan, we're going to test the "myth" that an R2 model astromech droid can travel unharmed through the Jungland Wastes after you take off it's restraining bolt."
"Well I can't understand why any logical creature would remove a restraining bolt on an R2 unit to begin with when everyone knows they were such a frisky model. I'd say without a doubt that this myth's busted."
Of course, someone's already done Imperial Chopper.
