So some interesting stuff was going down on an IMDb message board today that was brought to the attention of TheForce.net. Apparently an ex-employee of LucasFilm was not so happy about their being released in the current wave of layoffs and has decided to leak information on the new Star Wars animated project that we have been eagerly anticipating word on. According the poster the new show would be called Star Wars: Reclamation. Here’s what he had to say:
“might be talking about this. we’d been working on details of it since early last year but didn’t know the details until a few months ago. got the greenlight in january but stopped everything when the layoffs hit… i could probably get in trouble, but oh wait, i don’t work there anymore…who knows if this is the same project though, everything was dicey”
He or she posted that with a few pages of script as well. Now we have to take this with a grain of salt as the poster could just pulling a prank as there is no way to validate the source being a true ex-LucasFilm employee or not, and even if they were, if the script was real. I can say though, if this is anywhere near true than we may be in store for an even better show than Clone Wars. Stay tuned to our podcast, The Empire Talks back as more details become known.
