PostSubject: Star Wars live-action TV series - 2009   Mon 23 Apr 11:53

The Star Wars live-action TV series is a science fiction television series2009. It will be an Expanded Universe production set in the fictional Star Wars galaxy. The project, which has yet to be given an official title, was first announced in April 2005 by Star Wars creator George Lucas at the "Celebration III" fan convention in Indianapolis, Indiana. currently set to debut in
According to official reports, the series will be set during the 19 year timespan between the films Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. It will focus primarily on minor characters of the Star Wars
galaxy, rather than the main ones seen prominently in the films. These
minor characters will be both from the films and the Expanded Universe.
However, Lucas has stated that some of the main characters may make cameo appearances. Rick McCallum

has commented that "George envisions somewhere like 100 hours between
Episode III and Episode IV", which suggests that the hour-long series
will run for several years.

According to George Lucas at Celebration III, in the series, "a lot
of the issues from the films are connected, but you won't necessarily
see a lot of the people that are connected." McCallum says on the
writing and plot of the series: "We are just starting to interview
writers and trying to really figure out which direction to go to. He
envisions somewhere like 100 hours between Episode III and Episode IV
with a lot of characters that we haven't met that have been developed
in some of the novels and other things. We are really excited about
that. Finally, we could have the opportunity to answer everybody's
questions once and for all by the time we finish the series." Regarding
the series, he says: "It is going to be much darker, grittier. It's
much more character-based." The show is still in its early planning
stages, so many plot and/or story elements may change, as Lucas has
been shown to change his mind easily, such as expressing an interest in
expanding the character Shaak Ti, rather than killing her in Episode III. Yet another change to Star Wars canon that remains unexplained is why Shaak Ti is spared, not other lesser known Jedi.

In a recent interview, when asked about the show, McCallum replied, "Think about bounty hunter [sic]; thats all I can tell you." Lucas also said that the series won't be based on the Skywalkers and it will be for more mature audiences like TV shows Battlestar Galactica and Firefly.
Lucas has described the series as "bare-bones" and "action-heavy."

Two More Star Wars Movies Coming?

Fox411's Roger Friedman talked to George Lucas at the all-star Time magazine dinner and got some interesting sound bites from the Indiana Jones 4 executive producer.



Lucas says that Sean Connery still hasn't signed on, but his character,
Indy's dad, is in the script. Other than that, his lips are sealed.



Lucas said that he has seen all the summer movies since his company,
Industrial Light & Magic, does most of the special effects. The
only one they didn't work on was Spider-Man 3. What did he think of it?



"It's silly. It's a silly movie," he said. "There just isn't much
there. Once you take it all apart, there's not much story, is there?
People thought 'Star Wars' was silly, too," he added, with a wink. "But
it wasn't."



While Lucas is readying the new "Clone Wars" animated series, he told
Friedman that he will make two more live-action films based in the
"Star Wars" universe as well.



"But they won't have members of the Skywalker family as characters," he said. "They will be other people of that milieu."



The two extra films will also be made for TV and probably be an hour
long each. But, like "Clone Wars," Lucas doesn't know where on TV they
will land.
