Well it's still going to be a long road, but in late 2007 Lucas started to write together with others. Now it just has been announced casting has begun. It won't be anything big. It's set between ep III - IV. The action will follow the Rebel Alliance as it slowly gains strength against the Empire. There will be Stormtroopers, but no Jedi or Darth Vader will appear on screen. Bit of a disappointment. Maybe there will be cameos I dunno. There's been rumours Boba Fett will be in the series. Other speculations are that Quinlan Vos will be in the series too.
