A few weeks ago we http://movieweb.com/lucasfilm-to-produce-new-animated-star-wars-comedy/reported that a brand new Star Wars animated TV series was moving forward with Seth Green and now some new details seem to indicate the series will be a sequel to the final film in the franchise. IGN is reporting that LucasFilm's Steve Sansweet seemed to reveal that this new series will take place after the events of the film Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi.
During the Q&A section of the panel, a fan said, "I would really love to see new adventures after Jedi with our favorite characters Luke, Han and Leia," to which Sansweet replied, "And you will, in the new animation."
All that is known about the show so far is that Robot Chicken's Matthew Seinreich will be on board as producers along with Jennifer Hill, with Todd Grimes directing. The Daily Show's Brendan Hay will be a writer on the series, which was said to use the same style of animation as the current series Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
