Where's This "Star Wars" Live-Action TV Series?

on Tuesday, June 14, 2011

Now I'm sure the so-called "Star Wars" live-action TV show was meant to be on TV like a way back in 2009 or something. So where is it then? The franchises producer, Rick McCallum spoke out about the status of the "kinda not happening" TV series.

Where they're shooting:
 “Oh, absolutely. This would be one of the primary places because of the talent."

When we might finally see the show on TV:
“The TV series is on hold, but that has nothing to do with the Czech Republic; it has to do with [the episodes being] so ambitious,” McCallum told Czech Position. “We have 50 hours of third-draft scripts, but the problem we have is there is a lot of digital animation; we don’t have the technology yet to be able to do them at a price that is safe for television. Since we would be financing them, it would be suicide for us to do this [now]. So we are going to wait three or four years,"

The plot of the show and it's possible characters:
McCallum did reveal some of the basic storyline in the finished scripts. “It takes place between episodes three and four, when Luke Skywalker was growing up as a teenager, but it has nothing to do with Luke,” he said, adding that there is no young Luke Skywalker in any of the episodes. Episode three, “Revenge of the Sith” covers the time up until Luke’s birth. Episode four — the original “Star Wars” released in 1977, later called “A New Hope”— finds Luke at the start of his involvement with the Rebel Alliance.
“Basically, it is like ‘The Godfather’; it’s the Empire slowly building up its power base around the galaxy, what happens in Coruscant, which is the major capital, and it’s [about] a group of underground bosses who live there and control drugs, prostitution,” McCallum said.
