At Production I.G's Anime Expo industry panel on Saturday, Maki Terashima announced that I.G's Atsushi Takeuchi, whose long list of anime credits includes Appleseed, Ghost in the Shell, Patlabor, and I.G's upcoming The Sky Crawlers, will direct episode 12 of Lucasfilm Animation's Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series. The series is set to begin broadcasting on the Cartoon Network and TNT cable television stations this fall.

I.G recently utilized Skywalker Sound, which like Lucasfilm Animation is a part of Star Wars creator George Lucas' Lucasfilm, to create the sound mix for The Sky Crawlers.

Terashima also confirmed that Manga Entertainment will be handling the North American release of Ghost in the Shell 2.0 (pictured at right), the enhanced edition of the 1995 movie. Manga will announce its plans for the film at the San Diego's Comic-Con International.
