Earlier than The Mandalorian and earlier than Disney purchased Lucasfilm, there was one other Star Wars TV present within the works and Battlestar Galactica creator Ronald D. Moore has mentioned what it was prefer to work on the present with Collider.
Moore instructed Collider that a workforce of writers, together with some outdoors the US, met up at Skywalker Ranch each six to eight weeks with Lucas to interrupt story concepts. Lucas would then supply suggestions on the scripts earlier than writers went off for one more draft. “It didn’t occur finally, we wrote I’d say someplace within the 40-something, 48 scripts, one thing like that… the speculation was George wished to put in writing all of the scripts and get ‘em all executed after which he was gonna go off and work out find out how to produce them, as a result of he wished to do quite a lot of leading edge technological stuff with CG and digital units and so forth. And so he had an entire new factor he wished to perform.”
Lucas finally ended up promoting Lucasfilm “a 12 months or one thing after” the writing was full, in response to Moore.
“It was a unprecedented enterprise for somebody to do. I don’t know anybody else that will actually take that on… On the time, George simply stated ‘write them as huge as you need, and we’ll determine it out later.’ So we actually had no [budget] constraints. We had been all skilled tv and have writers, so all of us type of new what was theoretically doable on a manufacturing funds.” The present was heavy on motion and massive set items, method outdoors of the league of TV on the time.
Sadly, it wasn’t to be, but it surely’s not inconceivable it might resurface down the road as Disney tries to get essentially the most out of the Star Wars universe. Underworld was because of be set between Episodes III and IV.
Who is aware of what’s across the nook and this sequence might but resurface in some unspecified time in the future sooner or later, particularly as The Mandalorian and The Clone Wars have proved so popular on Disney+ — fingers crossed!
