Could star wars be joining ABC's Sunday night television lineup? I can see it now, right there in between ONCE, Revenge and maybe SHIELD too. Now that the Disney/Lucasfilm deal is signed, sealed and delivered ABC entertainment president Paul Lee is giving more thought to a live action star wars television series. Lee told entertainment weekly quote, "We're going to look at [the live-action series], we're going to look at all of them, and see what's right....It's definitely going to be part of the conversation." Surprisingly, the idea first surfaced a long time ago when Lucasfilm enlisted Battlestar Galactica writer Ron Moore to write around 50 scripts for a potential TV project. Lucasfilm described the venture as "the most provocative, bold and daring material that we've ever done." But fast forward several years and still no sign of "Star Wars the TV show" at nine, eight central. One of the issues with a show of this scope is
budget. But now that Disney and Lucasfilm are one big happy family, some of those previous financial concerns may be alleviated. As far as the timeline goes, the show fits somewhere between the original star wars trilogy and the prequels, allowing for all kinds of cameos from classic star wars characters. The story apparently revolves around rival
families fighting for control of the seedy underbelly of the star wars universe..and the inhabitants of the subterranean level and air shafts of the planet Corussant. And our protagonist could be a bounty hunter. If that synopsis sounds familiar, that's because it is. Its roughly the same set up for the upcoming star wars videogame 1313, and some of the concept art for the TV show made its way into the design of the game as well. So do you like the look and sound of a live action star wars series? And is ABC the right home for it? Let us know in the comments below and keep it locked on Clevver Movies for more news on this and other Star Wars stories. I'm Simone Boyce and thanks for watching Clevver Movies!
