A Star Wars Live Action TV series is not a new idea. There is allegedly even 90 episode scripts already written fora show that George Lucas was planning to make about the bounty hunters. While Lucas is no longer an active part of Star Wars, the idea of a live action show is still alive and strong at ABC.
At the ABC presentation during the Television Critics Association press tour, Channing Dungey, the network’s new president announced that they are currently in talks with Lucasfilm to make a show a reality.
Oh, as a fan, I would absolutely love to say ‘yes.’ The conversations with Lucas, we have had conversations with them and will continue to have conversations with them. I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand into our programming.
To temper expectations, he told The Wrap, after the presentation:
“It’s all a little bit hush, hush…That company [Lucasfilm] exists under a huge banner of secrecy. If you thought Marvel was secretive, Lucas takes it to a whole other level… We don’t have an official timeline yet.”
What part of the Star Wars universe would you most like to see portrayed as a live action series?
