This was my first animation script. I got a call out of the blue from Lucasfilms to work on their Droids series, and the way it was put to me was "You'll have four 30-minute episodes that tie together into one large story; think of it as your own 2-hour Star Wars movie." So I wrote what was, in fact, a 2-hour movie, in terms of scope. Unfortunately, animated shows don't really add up to a movie; the story was turned back as "too big." It was the first time an editor had ever told me I'd done too much.

But I was learning about animation, so I went back and started cutting and pasting, but as is often the case (another thing I've learned about animation), the series came to an end before these scripts could be used.
