On Monday and Tuesday night this week (May 23-24) the G4 networks prolific flagship series Attack of The Show has scored interviews with The Maker, George Lucas himself. In last night’s interview Mr. Lucas, accompanied by Disney’s Tom Fitzgerald, discussed with AoTS host Kevin Pereira the newly revamped Star Tours ride located at Disney’s theme parks.  In what appeared to be a pre-taped (but I don’t know that) interview they discussed at length the complete reboot of the ride.

After the interview concluded on Monday’s show, AoTS co-host Candace Bailey teased tonight’s interview “part 2” by adding that there would be information about the long awaited live action Star Wars TV series, announced by the most unimpeachable source of them all, George Lucas himself. I’ll give you both interviews below.

Yes, you heard him. Sadly the live action show is on indefinite hold while LFL solves budgetary issues, despite having fifty hours of the show on the shelf. That makes me sad. He did say they hoped to have it solved soon and be back in production.

Aaron Allston’s Conviction hits stores today. Conviction is the seventh novel in the Fate of the Jedi series and will be the last book by Allston as the series wraps up.

Synopsis: Chief of State Natasi Daala has been overthrown, and the Jedi Order has taken control of the Galactic Alliance. But while the new governors dismantle Daala’s draconian regime, forces still loyal to the deposed official are mobilizing a counterstrike. And even the Jedi’s new authority may not be enough to save Tahiri Veila, the former Jedi Knight and onetime Sith apprentice convicted of treason for the killing of Galactic Alliance officer Gilad Pellaeon.

Meanwhile, Luke and Ben Skywalker are relentlessly pursuing Abeloth, the powerful dark-side entity bent on ruling the galaxy. But as they corner their monstrous quarry on the planet Nam Chorios, the two lone Jedi must also face the fury of the Sith death squadron bearing down on them. And when Abeloth turns the tables with an insidious ambush, the Skywalkers’ quest threatens to become a suicide mission.

Remember, there are only two books remaining in the Fate of the Jedi series: Ascension by Christie Golden (August 16, 2011), and Apocalypse by Troy Denning (April 2012).
