George Lucas has said that he has 50 hours worth of a Star Wars television series ready to go, but is waiting for a technological breakthrough before it can be shot.

The iconic film maker has two full seasons ready to roll, but is hampered by the fact that it would be too expensive to make them.

Lucas told cable network G4TV that he was "awaiting a different type of technology we can use so it's economically feasible to shoot the shows".

Refusing to say what type of technology this was, he added that it was, "just a very, very difficult process."

It was announced last year that the series was to be delayed.

When it does finally reach our television screens, it is believed the series would focus on the period between the movies Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope.
