“Star Wars” TV Show Still Years Away
Those aching to see the live-action “Star Wars” TV series are going to have to wait a few more years it seems.
that “The TV series is on hold…it has to do with [the episodes being] so ambitious.
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 a group of underground bosses who live there and control drugs, prostitution.”
He goes on to explain the show’s current status.
“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 …
So we are going to wait three or four years.”
