As he did with the “Clone Wars” series, Lucas will write and shoot an entire year’s worth of episodes before looking for a cable channel on which to air the series, so it's going to be awhile before it finally enters Toobworld proper. (Of course, with appearances by 3PO and R2 in so many blipverts, it's already a part of the TV Universe.) Hopefully, the series will be cast mostly with unknown actors; it'll be more believable that way. By that I mean the actor won't be blocking our acceptance of the character.
Not that I think 'Star Wars' is real..... Heh heh.... ahem.
