Short Film Spotlight: Patton Oswalt’s Star Wars Filibuster

Back in April, Patton Oswalt guest starred on an episode of NBC’s Parks & Recreation titled “Article Two,” in which he played the role of a city resident upset about the potential removal of antiquated laws. One of the outtakes from the episode included an improvised 8-minute Star Wars rant which quickly went viral. And now the Nerdist Channel on YouTube has animated Oswalt’s rant, which you can watch below.

Lucasfilm Animation developing yet another Star Wars series

Variety reports that Lucasfilm Animation is developing a new animated Star Wars TV comedy series. Yes, you read correctly… a Star Wars comedy series. But really, are you surprised? If there is one thing George Lucas loves, it’s milking the Star Wars franchise for every golden drop.

Jennifer Hill, winner of a Daytime Emmy and Gemini Award, whose credits include Nickelodeon’s The Backyardigans, will produce the show, while Todd Grimes, who’s credits include Nickelodeon’s Back at the Barnyard will direct.

Writers will include Brendan Hay, who has written for the show Republicans love to hate, The Daily Show. Also, Seth Green and Matthew Senreich, creators and executive producers of Robot Chicken, will have creative involvement in the series.

No start date or network have been announced.
