'Star Wars' to become animated TV sitcom

NEW YORK Lucasfilm Animation said Monday that "Star Wars" is coming to TV as an animated comedy series. The sitcom is still in development and doesn't have a title yet.

Lucasfilm says it will explore the comic aspects of that "galaxy far, far away" as it playfully and irreverently confronts the saga's characters and mythology.

Part of the creative team is Seth Green, who helped hatch the popular "Robot Chicken." He promises the new show will answer the question, "What do these Star Wars characters do when they're not overthrowing Empires?"

No network or start date was announced for the series.
