think about it: star wars was originally envisioned as part movie serial. what current entertainment format imitates the serial format more than any other? a weekly TV series.
it'll never happen, mark my words, but if they can capture that serial feel--the adventure and swashbuckle and sexy excitement of the best Star Wars--every week, i don't care who stars in it, or whose story they tell. to me, star wars is as much about how the story is told as it is about the story itself--something lucas never seemed to understand on the prequels.
