I thought they've had that live action show in the works for awhile. If this is the same one, all the news about it made it sound like a pretty badass idea. Mind you, it'd get all neutered on ABC and would need to be HBO/Showtime.

Was gonna say. This idea has been around for, like, ever.

There has already been a Star Wars TV show. It was all CG, and was better than the movies.

But will it have a Holiday Special?
 
2013-01-11 01:52:31 AM  
It shouldn't be between the trilogies - that's dumb.

They should just do KotOR,

The first entire season could be the constructed from the first game - then build from there, maybe adding the Exile in the third or fourth season.

I've been meaning to play through 1 and 2 again. Maybe Friday will be the day to start.

Quit farking around and just get John Waters to to do it RIGHT!

Isn't there also a new "comedy" Star Wars cartoon planned as well?

Imagine one of those generic drama sitcoms, like Grey's Anatomy or Glee, but with Jedi's.

Superman got turned into a teen drama. Star Wars could be a police procedural. CSI: Tatooine.

I was better than the prequels, that's for sure. Though I don't remember it being CGI...

McCallum no longer works for Lucasfilm / Disney. Given that it was "his baby" - you'd think they'd have kept him around if they were going to go into production with that series.
 
2013-01-11 03:41:39 AM  
I'm over this idea that more content somehow sullies what's been done previously. If it's good I'll watch, if it's a steaming pile I won't. The panties just aren't comfy when they get in a bunch.

Rick McCallum met George Lucas in 1985 after the last of the original trilogy films was made. In the ensuing decades, they collaborated on The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles, the Star Wars Special Editions and of course the prequel trilogy. It's like Lucas was the captain of the Titanic and McCallum was the one who willingly and eagerly steered right into the iceberg (if you'll pardon the shopworn cliche).

first couple of series were 2d animation and entirely brilliant.. then they made the 3d ones which were very good, and got consistently better as it went.

The first animated season was crap. It had out of character moments like Padme using C3P0 as bait or Mace Windu taking on an army by himself. It was mostly: ooh look at these cool action scenes i animated! The second Animated season was great.. And the CGI version has been excellent.

The live action one was supposed to be about the Underworld/bounty hunters...

But those wanting HBO style... That's not Star Wars

Well yeah, it was by Gendy Tartakovsy. That's like going to a Tarantino movie and complaining that everyone's blathering about pop culture too much.

You know, I've heard mention of that Clone Wars stuff from time to time, but I've never seen any of it, surprising considering how Star Wars was my life in the late 1970's.

The first season was.. a thing off on its own I agree, was more anime than starwars at times (hyperstylised action like the windu thing), but showed the way and led to the others directly.

I would much rather see the initial rise of the sith, and explaining the whole 1 master 1 apprentice thing, etc. And no, I'm not going to sift thru a bunch of books to find that out.

Some of the fan fiction on the 'net is pretty darn good.

Hopefully it won't focus on Jedi, they're boring.
 
2013-01-11 07:57:49 AM  
They've talked about that for years and years. My friend gets all excited about it every time news of a Star Wars TV show does the rounds, but here's the thing... 1) it hasn't come out the last 10 times it was mentioned and 2) do you really want to watch a Star Wars TV show? Really?

/One Star Wars Tree Hill
//probably set in the PT universe
///no thanks
 
2013-01-11 08:01:04 AM  
BSG and Caprica showed what can be done in an hour long TV format. If the writing and acting are good then it can be a hit or at lest a cable hit. if the writing and acting bog down then you have a five episode tax write off.
 
2013-01-11 08:02:32 AM  
but where can ABC find another gay robot?

\not him, he's with CBS
\\not them either, they're with the BBC
