A Sketch From The Future Of Star Wars TV Animation

We don’t know what Lucasfilm’s long reaching plans for animation are, but we know that they have them. The cancellation of The Clone Wars and shelving of Detours seem to be making space for other, fresh series that remain mysterious.

There is still some “extra material” to come from Clone Wars, though we don’t know how and where, or what stage it is in. Chances are, though, that this material is in a very advanced stage.

So when Lucasfilm animation stalwart Dave Filoni posts a new pencil image to his Facebook, I think it more likely this has something to do with an as-yet unannounced project.

Here’s a Tie Fighter on a rod, with Filoni’s annotation below.

It’s hard to believe that I have worked at Lucasfilm almost eight years, and this is the first time I have ever gotten to draw a TIE fighter.

But I bet he’s doodled plenty off duty.

When Clone Wars was cancelled we were officially told that the new, secret animated show will be set:

In a time period previously untouched in Star Wars films or television programming. You can expect more details in the months to come.

Which means it won’t be taking place during the original trilogy. The inclusion of the Tie Fighter means it won’t be during or before the prequels. By process of elimination, I think we can say this will be post-Return of the Jedi stuff.

Could it be Star Wars: Reclamation?
