Looks like a live-action STAR WARS series might actually happen

I’ve learned to never get my hopes up when it comes to George Lucas, but it looks like he’s finally going to deliver on the promise of a live-action Star Wars series, set to take place between episodes III and IV.  According to Aint It Cool News, Lucas has started casting

I would really like to know the names of the writers Lucas has assembled to put this together — it could tell a lot about what he’s shooting for.  I don’t see anything up in IMDB yet, but a search for “Star Wars” yields 116 results, so I might have missed it. 

So, as with J.J. Abram’s Star Trek and Dark Tower projects, I’m maintaining cautious optimism.  C’mon, it’s Star Wars.  A nerd just can’t help himself.
