“Star Wars” TV Show Still Years Away

"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.

Producer Rick McCallum confirms to Czech Position (via Bleeding Cool)

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.”
