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

Had an idea for a sort of young Han Solo TV series, around the time after the prequel trilogy ended and Lucas had a major announcement I actually convinced a co-worker that it was going to happen.

Would follow a young Han Solo as he meets people like Chewbacca and Lando, gets the Millennium Falcon, gets into a career as a smuggler, encounters bounty hunters, and basically "Captain Kirk's" his way across the SW universe. Han always seemed to be a guy who knew someone that could help him out from the smuggler days and his cocky attitude and smugness was something that was sorely missing from the prequel trilogy... thats what I used as the point to convince the co-worker that there would be a series about him.

Omis: Of course they do until they realize how much money its going to cost. The ratings won't be good because most people will be recording it on their dvrs. Advertisers will pull out. Then to save money, we'll have a half season where the characters end up in modern new york ( which will look an awful like the streets of toronto.) People are going to get passed of and the series dies a horrible death.

The End.

Judging by what the have done with "Once Upon a Time", I'd say that Disney understands that spending money on good product is worthwhile.


Yeah... I'll buy the whole give them a chance thing, but when you are faced with scenes like this:

MiscCharacter: Umm wtf is she doing here?

ExEvilQueen: I was invited and I'm not evil now. Look, everyone is giving me a 46th chance, what is your problem?

MiscCharacter: You came into my home, turned my daughter into a mouse, my wife into a cat, and made me watch as she ate my daughter alive.

EQ: Seriously? That was like two weeks ago. Don't be a jerk.

Given how big is and how much time does the Star Wars Universe spans, I do think that there are tons of interesting stories that can be told with different tones... from childish and light to dark and gritty... However, budget is going to be a big issue, I think.

Darth_Lukecash: gaspode: HotWingAgenda: fusillade762: HotWingAgenda: There has already been a Star Wars TV show. It was all CG, and was better than the movies.

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

[media.sfx.co.uk image 610x464]

Oh wow, they made a cartoon version too?
[www.thickets.net image 350x542]

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


Exactly. Empire Strikes Back on steroids? Like BSG and Deadwood? Fark that. Star Wars is all about the farking Mary Sues and Pew! Pew! Pew! Hell Firefly was closer to farking Star Wars then either BSG or Deadwood.

Meh, set it between Episode III and IV give us a crew, with an ex-trooper Clone captain, his bad assed no-nonsense Rhodian side kick, a lovable goof ball of a pilot, their ex-Republic Military Doctor, a Wookie mechanic, a bounty hunter, an old ex-Jedi and his half crazy apprentice in a lovable scruffy stock light freighter trying to make their way throughout the outer rim of the galaxy and avoid Imperial entanglements.

As the article stated, it will never work.  Something like this would be way to expensive to do on TV without cutting the budget to the point of it looking ridiculous.  Either way, even if it's good the fan boys will pick apart every episode and biatch and moan about every little detail.

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.

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.

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.

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 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.
