Good to hear! But honestly, I kinda saw it coming. Hasbro also did the same thing, except their license ends in 2012 (I think). This is truly fantastic news, but it was almost inevitable. Now that they got things nailed down, who wants a Clone Wars series? :)

This is great news. It's good to hear they've also got the licence for the new animated TV series as well.

Does anyone know if they'll have the license when the final trilogy is made?

This is great news!  I'm surprised they didn't mention the live action TV series as well.  Although they do mention they have the entire Star Wars univers...
So much LEGO, so little time...

I guess this is good, if it keeps TLC profitable so they can make more interesting things than spaceship after spaceship after spaceship.

Despite rumors that have been floating around, at this point there will not be a final trilogy.  While nothing is ever certain, of course, George Lucas has stated very clearly (and repeatedly) that there will not be any more Star Wars movies.  If there are, they certainly won't be made by him.  

Who knows, though..... if the TV show is really successful, anything is possible!

I thought he said that another trilogy was very likely. Ah well - Lucas is starting to milk Star Wars....

Yeah, what's the point?

First of all, a final trilogy isn't confirmed, actually Lucas clearly said he won't make it.

And even if he does it surely wouldn't be aired before 2011, so nobody can know if TLC will still have the license then...

Oh NO!!!...I promised my wife I would stop in 2007.  I told her I wouldn't expand my display in the basement beyond 2007.  Anyone know a good divorce lawyer?

When I saw all 6 Films together last May and Lucas attended, he said that the movies were the story of Darth Vader.  And thus he wouldn't be making anymore.

Though he's said someone could make a Knights of the Old Republic movie, in subsiquent interviews.

But this is great news about the license.  Clone Wars sets!!!

Lego2000, attorney at law, at your service...

Front page, o' right! I'm excited to see what sets will be made from the animated series.

Outstanding! Posted Image

That's plenty of time to see more redesigned sets (like Slave I and the new A and B Wings), More UCS like the Y-wing and Snowspeeder, and perhaps...just perhaps a few more Expanded Universe ships like the TIE/d. Posted Image

I salute you LEGO, but my wallet curses you  :-D

It would be great to get redesigns of rare sets like the Ep.1 MTTs or the small BD carrier...

Oh, and new Mini sets....

I'm not happy about this. Whatever any random StarWars-geek may find I sort of find all newer designs the line carries very bland. When I think of SW-Lego nowadays it breaks down like this: "Useful parts for non-space? No. = worthless to me"

But I admit of course it might be good news to the SW-crowd.
This is Cutty. You are not Cutty. Not at all...

wow.. cool ... but i hope, we'll get new sets and not more redesigns. I lost the fun of collecting lego star wars, when we get only new "old" sets..

So this means no return of nonfranchise Space for 6 more years at least  :( ... although given the quality of most current system scale sets vs the Star Wars line, that may be good thing.
