As a follow-up to Collider’s latest piece by which they communicate with Ronald D. Moore about engaged on the cancelled Star Wars live-action TV series earlier than Lucasfilm was formally bought by Disney, we wished to return in time a bit and revisit two interviews IGN performed with Rick McCallum and George Lucas on this very topic. The temporary Lucas interview was held in 2010 and the McCallum interview passed off in 2012. Beneath are just a few highlights taken from every interview as a refresher on the preliminary work that was being carried out to develop the primary deliberate Star Wars live-action TV sequence.
– The working title for the sequence was Star Wars: Underworld.
– The sequence was set to happen throughout the 20-year interval between Episode III and Episode IV.
– 50 “timeless” scripts had been written for the sequence that targeted on the felony, gang-related side of Star Wars.
– The price range was $5 million per episode.
– Every episode was going to be one-hour in size.
– Lucas and McCallum wished see how know-how may doubtlessly evolve down the street to permit the sequence to be made on a leaner price range.
– Discovering the precise supply technique for the sequence was a serious concern.
