|Clone Wars canceled|
"After five highly successful and critically acclaimed seasons of 'Star Wars: The Clone Wars,' we feel the time has come to wind down the series," Lucasfilm said on its website. The company is also delaying the launch of "Star Wars: Detours," a comedy series that was in the works before Disney purchased Lucasfilm and announced plans to launch a new trilogy.
It's not all bad news for "Star Wars" fans. "We are exploring a whole new 'Star Wars' series set in a time period previously untouched in 'Star Wars' films or television programming," Lucasfilm said. "You can expect more details in the months to come."
Talk of a live-action "Star Wars" series set between the two current trilogies has been around for years. The series, at one point called "Star Wars: Underworld," was set om the 20-year gap between "Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith" and the beginning of "Star Wars Episode IV: A New Hope."
