IESB is claiming that they have learned exclusively that Lucasfilm is putting together a second animated cartoon series for Cartoon Network. This cartoon would be based on the incredibly cool Galactic Heroes toys.
A lot of people will almost instantly dismiss this as George Lucas going for a grab for more money or something, but take a look at the Marvel version of this show with The Super Hero Squad, it’s incredibly fun and successful, and there’s obviously a market for it. That and they are adorable and we need a more kids oriented Star Wars cartoon.
And really, more Star Wars never killed anyone.
George Lucas has been known to call the Galactic Heroes line “Squishies” and that is (according to IESB) the working title for the show. They’re also reporting that a director has apparently been brought on board.
I’ll be back to report more as it becomes available, but I’m terribly excited about this possibility.
