With the announcement tonight that the creators of the Game of Thrones TV are set to write and produce a new Star Wars movie series, could we be close to hearing that a new animated series is on the way?

With The Clone Wars, Rebels and – trust us on this – The Freemaker Adventures sitting in may people’s favourite its of Star Wars, we shouldn’t be surprised to learn that a new animated series may be afoot at Lucasfilm.

A new job post found on Linkedin (here) seems to indicate just that as the post puts a call out for a versatile Episodic Director to join [the Clone Wars and Rebels] production team.

You can check out the full details below (or the link above if you fancy applying). Let us know what you think…

Lucasfilm Animation and creators of the Emmy award winning animation series “Star Wars: The Clone Wars” and the highly successful animation series “Star Wars: Rebels” are looking for a versatile Episodic Director to join their production team. The Episodic Director’s main role is to work closely with all levels of creative production in tandem with the Supervising Director, in order to bring the script to life on our animated television series. The ideal candidate is expected to balance managing all the various aspects of production, while successfully maintaining the highest quality of technical and creative storytelling possible for their respective episodes.

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
