I doubt that. George Lucas doesn't except failure, and I don't think he would allow LucasFilm Animation to just roll over and die. Also it is only going to have a nine person [according to the yahoo article] team. Sounds more like a new division of ILM to focus on Animations to compete with Dreamworks. However I hope he is not the one making up the stories.

Ranks 12th for Top Grossing Films in USA Box Office History.
Ranks 15th for International

12 Star Wars: Episode II - Attack of the Clones (2002) $310,675,583 -

USA Box Office (http://us.imdb.com/Charts/usatopmovies)
International Box Office (http://us.imdb.com/Charts/intltopmovies)

Thats not much of a failure to me, any movie that makes more than a quarter billion is a success.

Of course it made money, it's the star wars franchise. It doesn't change the fact that the movie sucked *****.

Back when Lucas made the original star wars trilogy and American Graffiti, he had his thumb on the pulse of American culture. Now he just has his thumb up his *****.

Of course, we should be a little forgiving since most forget that with the number of films he's actually done, he's the worlds richest amateur filmmaker. And I am counting Howard the Duck.

LOL.

So his stories suck now. Oh well but you got to give the guy credit he has helped pioneered alot of the technology that we see used in film today. It was Lucas, Sony, and Panavision that brought the world HD. If it were not for him there would not have been a Pixar. He prob regrets selling Pixar [a mult-billion dollar grossing company] to Steve Jobs. So we now have a LucasFilm Animation division. But I think it is too soon to speculate that it will succed or fail, until their first project hits the box office.
