I hope that Christy Hui is still working on the "Xiaolin Dragons" project according to…. Am I right?

The Xiaolin Dragons kickstarter campaign is officially still postponed, and it remains unclear if it will ever be started up again after multiple return dates were announced and have since passed.  It also doesn't help that all social media outlets went dark from February 2016 to late June of the same year.  Currently the only media front that updates sporadically is the XiaolinOnline twitter feed, which tweeted out a cryptic photo with the caption "working on Xiaolin stuff."  A tweet from a fan was shortly retweeted asking if that was in relation to a Xiaolin Feature Film that was questioned briefly on facebook in 2014 when episodes of Xiaolin Chronicles were still airing somewhat regularly on DisneyXD.
Presently I do not know if the graphic novel will move forward in its current condition, or if Hui will move on to a different format or Xiaolin-related project.  All that is certain is that Hui knows the fans are out there and dedicated, and they want more.  The best us Dragonites can do is lend our support when asked.  Currently that means binge watching XC on Netflix.  All we can do is hope and carry on the light of Xiaolin.

Let me tell about the "Xiaolin Chronicles" animated show. It was actually an English-language dub of French animated series "Les chroniques de Xiaolin", made due to the popularity of "Xiaolin Showdown" in France. Another reason why this happened is because the "Xiaolin Showdown" franchise is completely owned by ActionFliks Media Corp. and NOT by Warner Bros.
The dubbing job was handled by a small dubbing studio in Los Angeles, who didn't bother to hire Xiaolin Showdown's voice actors. The dubbing studio used Canadian expatriate actors in Los Angeles for the English-language dub of "Les chroniques de Xiaolin" and it happened only because the main character's voice actor is Canadian.
The reason why the names of all Shen Gong Wu are different in "Xiaolin Chronicles"? It was a translation error. For example, the Sword of the Storm is "L'épée de Lucida" in the French-language dub of "Xiaolin Showdown". The Orb of Tornami is "the Orb of Torpedo" ("L'orbe de Torpedo") because of the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake and tsunami. Television networks in Japan are now avoiding all of the references to such disasters. Also, the dubbing team didn't bother to do their research on "Xiaolin Showdown".
To me, making a new "Xiaolin Showdown" animated show with the different names for all Shen Gong Wu is like this: making a sequel to "Mighty Morphin Power Rangers" with the different names for all places. How about that?

I'm not sure where you're getting your information from, as it differs from what the series creator has said in her newsletters before, during, and after production.

Xiaolin Chronicles was a reboot of the animated series Xiaolin Showdown that aired from 2003-2006 on Kids WB.  XC was an international co-production between Genao and ActionFliks Media.  ActionFliks Media for all intents and purposes is the production identity of Christy Hui, the series creator, and due to the laws of copyright within the US where the original series was produced, she retains all rights over Xiaolin Showdown.  However, Time-Warner owns all rights to the Shen Gong Wu.  Due to the rules of copyright again, several changes were made to the series to make the reboot 'legal.'  There were several problems with the co-production that Hui discusses in her Newsletters, mainly that the animation team needed the scripts in French, but the scripts were originally written in English.  As such, the scripts were translated into French for the animation team, then translated back to English again for the voice actors.
Because Genao is a French-Canadian company all of the post production was done in France.  It was my understanding that the dubbing was done in Canada, and thus had to comply with the laws of that country which dictate that Canadian actors or actors with expensive international licenses are the only ones allowed to voice act.  The only two actors from the original cast that fit the criteria were Tara Strong (Omi), and Jennifer Hale (Katnappe).
The translation errors you mentioned explain the origin of the new names for the Shen Gong Wu.  However, Hui implied in an interview before XC even came on the air that she was greatly inspired by fan fiction of the original Xiaolin series, and that greatly influenced the content of XC.  This was also the first time Hui has written for animation, so that explains some of the spotty nature of the plots outside of translation errors.  The art director and co-author on almost all the episodes are two people that have been with her since the start of Xiaolin back in 2001.  So to say that 'Xiaolin Chronicles was made with no research' calls into question if the series creator and two of her long-term team members are qualified to do what they've been doing for the last sixteen years.  If you want to combine all their experience they have a staggering 30+ years of experience.  Hui consistently proves that she knows what Xiaolin is about, but the only thing I question is if she understands the fanbase and their desires.  With a business degree gathering marketing data should be a snap for her.
