Live action Star Wars TV show?


Recommended Posts

I'm hopefully going to start the writers' conferences later this year. It'll take about six months to get the scripts, so by about 2009 we hope to actually be shooting...




How ambitious is the project going to be?

It'll be darker and more mature, and very character based. The idea is to do, say, 13 to 16 episodes over one or two years -- we haven't quite figured that out yet as television is changing so dramatically worldwide. After the second or third year, one of the characters from the first series could move on to his own series. Then, by the fourth or fifth year, we would love to have four or five separate TV series of 13 episodes each running. That's a pipe dream right now, of course! But as long as it's good, and as long as people respond, and as long as we're doing it at the level we need to do it, and people care about the characters, I think that's totally possible.

well, i guess that's ok, but i don't know how they aren't gonna mention the empire without reference to vader. nevertheless, i can't wait for it!


Well, it says nothing to do with those people - I would assume specifically. They are still out there and probably Vader, Palpatine, the Empire, etc will be referenced and mentioned.. of course it also has to do with what time period the show will take place in.

Last I heard, characters like Boba Fett, Leia Organa, and Obi-Wan would make minor appearances, whereas characters like Vader, and Palpatine, would make apperances in each episode...And most of the show would be about Order 66. This new development seems like a complete 180.


Here's a link to what I was talking about.

Good. The Star Wars Galaxy is a huge place, and the story doesn't have to focus on the same people or family.


I just pray that the minor characters have better names than most of the EU characters do.


I agree that the focus should be shifted to other characters. However I have to disagree on EU characters

having bad names, its the characters from the prequels that have the most horrendous names.
