Star Wars TV series

03.10.2009

George Lucas has revealed that he and his team are about to write material for a live-action STAR WARS show. According to Lucas, the show will center around minor characters from the mythology between REVENGE OF THE SITH and the original STAR WARS. We will follow the Rebel Alliance as it slowly gains strength against the Empire. There will be no Jedi or Darth Vader.

When reached for a comment about his motivation for developing the series, Lucas said "CHA-CHING, BITCHES!!", set a fist-full of hundred dollar bills on fire and then rolled off down a hill into a huge mountain of ice cream.

Although I'm not always...

a huge fan of James' humor, I have to admit this time I LOL'ed. The visual popped into my head and I couldn't help myself. I salute you Mr. Thoo.

Strong STORY

Yeah open his wallet to some serious writers. All these years ago we heard about this TV show they should have been paying someone to refine the story. Just like C.Bale said, they need to write the story as if it can be played out on a stage with no effects. Story Lucas, Story......nuff said

C'mon Lucas ! Move FORWARD already! I'm so sick of the Clone Wars stuff. Both Luke and Leia had kids ... focus on the new stuff and stop recycling the same shit with characters we don't care about (like that annoying brat on Clone Wars, Anakin's padawan )sheesh!

HOW ABOUT- trying to move on with the story, I would love to see a new set of films covering events after Return of the Jedi- (Dark Empire would shut people up crying about the prequels) (As well, The Clone Wars ended after III, so enough of that crap)

My suggestion- A new set of events of the Jedi Council reformed by Luke (Mark Hamill only need be in the first one) obviously Leia & Han's kids take over going against some new/old threats (Emperor returns?), the novels not really counting as

As much as I love Star Wars, Im on the fence with this one. I mean at what point do we say O.K. Mr Lucas put the Lightsabers and Whips away and create something else. I LOVE Star Wars and Indiana Jones, I will even go out on a limb and say that I liked Jar Jar.... OK maybe thats going too far but I enjoyed all 6 episodes and all 4 Indies. My son lives and breathes SW and he's only 5 thank to mee (created a monster with that one). I have only seen the Clone Wars Movie and that looks half alright

My son lives and breathes SW and he's only 5 thank to mee (created a monster with that one). I have only seen the Clone Wars Movie and that looks half alright but if He's Gonna make a TV series, Its gotta be Fucking Kickass like Battlestar Galactica, a bit gritty but still keep within the boundaries of said universe.
Flesh out the characters, and give us the Fett as was mentioned below, give us stormtroopers, Give us a young Luke, I'd like to see how he evolves into the Luke we know, "HEY" if we are lucky he may even surprise us and whinge again LOL.(Remember the Star Wars drinking game, Everytime Luke Whinges, Scull a beer). A young Han and Chewie, see how they get together. Star Wars is NOT Star Wars without Darth Vader and Jedi's and Lightsabers, They all go hand in hand. Each ep should focus on certain characters in certain situations but they need to have BETTER ACTING and WRITING as a lot of people have said that as great as the SW universe is the Acting needs to improve, (Cue Director).
If Lucas pulls his finger out and gives us something that everyone can enjoy, it may go a long way to redeeming himself in the eyes of some of the schmoes on this site.
He Captured the essence of SW in A New Hope and its sequels and went backwards with the prequels. Lets just hope he can pull another Womprat out of the SW Hat.

Hmm..

Let's look at this from a strategic POV. I will have no problem with this for the simple fact that I am still, after all the raping and pillaging that Lucas has done, a star wars fan. In fact, you will notice that despite the horrible star wars crap we've seen lately, fans are still giving a positive response to this. It comes down to how involved Lucas is. That mother fucker needs to open up his wallet. That. is. it. If he does anymore you will see me on the evening news in handcuffs with the

Having said that, bring on the minor characters! Juice them up! Give us the drama that was missing from the last three films. And please... is it so much to ask..... give me some Boba Fett action? Ahthankyou.

So that means...

So that means... let's see.. characters.. that means we HAVE to see.. hmm a young Han Solo for sure.. maybe some more Chewie.. young Mon Montha.. baby Admiral Ackbar.. except. ooh! Let's make him a lieutenant.. get it because it the past!

Uh.. maybe Watto is partners with the guy Lando flies with in ROTJ... and then... Jimmy Smits will have C-3PO, and R2-D2.. and they will some how run past someone in the original trilogy who will have no memory of them.. then toddler Biggs and toddler

(In all reality.. I have to say I that branching out to non-jedi stuff could be interesting.. could force us to focus on some new characters.. I just hope it doesn't have to be shoehorned into the original trilogy, and beat us over our heads that about 5 people decide the fates of the entire star wars universe.)

I can't trust him anymore either. He's just a goof. Look at Indiana Jones, BIG GOOF! Just get on with the series and go beyond Return of the Jedi already, its really what people want George.So we'll see this series in like 2 years? Maybe by 2011 or 2012? That sucks, this series was announced a LOOOOOOOOONNNNGGG time ago in an Era far far away. The flame for this idea kind of burned out.

THIS MIGHT BE PRETTY GOOD

It seems the series is going to focus solely on story of the Rebel Alliance then this could be very interesting. No Jedi? Of course, they are either all dead or in hiding. No Darth? Sure, since it's going to focus solely on the Alliance and not the Empire but there will be Empire dealings for sure since they are the enemy. There are several books already in publication such as The X-Wing Sagas which could easily be tapped for source material. The Clone Wars has already proven to be a

Sure, since it's going to focus solely on the Alliance and not the Empire but there will be Empire dealings for sure since they are the enemy. There are several books already in publication such as The X-Wing Sagas which could easily be tapped for source material. The Clone Wars has already proven to be a watchable series. The story of the time between Sith and New Hope might shed light on the inside story. Let's keep in mind that he did say no Darth and no Jedi. He did not say, no Luke, no Han Solo, no Leia, no Chewbacca and no Lando. The side stories of any of these characters, especially Leia who was part of the Rebel Alliance could be good. I personally would like to see an entire series devoted to Han and Chewy which would involve Lando and those adventures would be too cool. Again, there are some great books out there detailing Han's adventures. So, it is entirely possible that many of the beloved characters will be reinvented for this series. I for one, albeit with the many plot holes the Star Wars saga has, is still a big fan and as I've always said, even bad Star Wars is better than no Star Wars at all.

Another Childhood Rapage?

I don't really trust Lucas anymore.
I absolutely love Star Wars, and i even like the re-tweaked versions and his prequel trilogy too. But i drew the line after Clone Wars. Just Bring Star Wars out on Hi-Def and let it be!

I don't care about the clone wars or anything that happened before the original trilogy. If they want to do something different, then make a movie or series about the Knights Of The Old Republic. What the people really want to see is Lucas doing a movie about what happened after Return Of The Jedi. Even if it was animated, and you could get the original stars to do the voiceovers in reprising their roles.

Not new news, but interesting news - I'm ever hopeful. The Original Trilogy will always be hallowed, but the prequels were... fun. And lets face it, the Star Wars Universe is so much more fun than ours. I for one can't wait to see it.

sigh. look, this info has been around forever. lucas and co. have been writing since last year. they're filming in australia. and the quote from him was (like 2 years ago in tv guide) "there WILL be storm troopers but there will not be jedi." because most of the jedi are obviously dead. he's going for a tatooine spaghetti western old school star wars feel and it's actually not about the formation of the alliance as much as the crime lords. google it joblo. mtv posted that shit about a

So this is not new news. It has been widely known that their was going to be a live action tv series based on the Star Wars galaxy since ROTS came out. At any rate I can't wait to see it. I love the Loce Wars tv series that is on Cartoon Network.

This show might be awesome. Who knows. Probably not though.

The only two options that would be OK by me, as far as the Star Wars saga is concerned, is for George to make a 7th, 8th and 9th film, or for him to never make Star Wars material again.

Star Wars needs to die, so it doesn't have shit attached to it, like this TV show.

I feel like there isn't anything left to tell in that era. 1) Force Unleashed already showed us the rise of the Rebel Alliance. 2) Without Stormtroopers at least as a tertiary threat what's the point of having the Empire? 3) There are still SOME Jedi and force users running around between SITH and HOPE.. and sorry, but the force is Star Wars and Star Wars is the force. Is he going to show at least SOME of these people? The smuggler/bounty hunter characters would work great if the series

My point is.. if you're going to do Star Wars.. then just fucking do STAR WARS!!! Don't kid it down, don't take away the elements that make it great (which, I bet you, if it doesn't happen in the first season after ratings fall, it definitely will in the second where some light-saber wielder or actual Jedi will be written into the story). It's Star Wars, GL! Make STAR WARS!!!!

I would actually be interested if Lucus did something post-Jedi. I'm not a huge fanboy by any means (and I could be wrong) but doesn't Luke restart the Jedi order? There are endless possibilities that could come from this, as well as new material that the average person (non-fanboy) doesn't know. I'm a little burned out with all the "between Sith-New Hope" ideas. If I'm wrong, please enlighten me . . . like I said, while I like Star Wars, I'm not an uber fan.

Finally

Think about it, current Star Wars isn't up to par because of Lucas himself. If other writers take part in it (and it's on a non-network station) than it has every chance in the world to be a worthy addition to the franchise.

Frankly, I'm interested in that span of time (as is every other nerd) and doing it this way is certainly the way to go. Now if only we could get Kevin Smith and some other famous Star Wars fanboys to write/direct some episodes and set the CORRECT tone of the series.

can we get some Fett action?

I still support Lucas. He gave us 2 of the greatest trilogies of all time as well as some of the most incredible characters of all time. His movies will last forever and he has changed the history of cinema forever and for the good. I totally support what he is doing though. The vast ammounts of jedis and storm troopers in the new trilogy hurt the film and i trust that making it simpler and more personal will help.Can we see some Boba Fett?

I'm going to stand against the hate and say this might be the last stand of dignity left in the SW universe post Jedi.

If they bring in new writers, keep the budget modest, not go with a network station (HBO has the rights to show the SW films) and get fresh talented storytellers, this could be exactly what we've always wanted.

The four golden rules for Lucas:

1. Do not make it exclusively child material. Not asking for you to throw in buckets of blood and sex, but make it a bit more

2. Real sets, real effects, real people.

3. New planets, new characters, new stories. Make the universe expansive! Don't interconnect every damn thing.

4. For the love of God, get proper screenwriters and directors who can expand this once magical world!

Theres no point developing this. It might aswell be "Friends" in space. What a load of sh**.

The downward spiral we saw going out of control with Clone Wars all started with Jar Jar fucking Binks.

Sounds like weak characters are gonna be fronted in this series for one thing-without the main or core larger than life characters (no need to name them) you're just nippin' round the edges of a Sci-Fi masterpiece-hence probably if they do this,it'll be one season and its over.

"We will follow the Rebel Alliance as it slowly gains strength against the Empire. There will be no storm troopers nor Jedi."

WTF???

I know we already suffered "fart-jokes" in the latest SW entry...

But.. Is this for real??

I mean.. if it this, then it should be called: STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE STINKER.

Why is this man stinking with the EP III - IV formula?? Aren't like 20 thousand stories about what happens after EP VI???

Well, that's it for George I guess.

So, now that
"We will follow the Rebel Alliance as it slowly gains strength against the Empire. There will be no storm troopers nor Jedi."

WTF???

I know we already suffered "fart-jokes" in the latest SW entry...

But.. Is this for real??

I mean.. if it this, then it should be called: STAR WARS: RETURN OF THE STINKER.

Why is this man stinking with the EP III - IV formula?? Aren't like 20 thousand stories about what happens after EP VI???

Well, that's it for George I guess.

So, now that there at it, Lucas should produce it, Uwe Boll should direct it and Dane Cook should lead the cast. If we are going to sink the franchise, well.. by goddamn we're going to do it in a crapper far far away...

May the force be with them

I'm a huge SW fan and love the sound of a live-action TV series set between episodes 3 and 4. For the record, I believe I heard that stormtroopers WILL be included but obviously not Jedis. Can't wait to hear casting news!

pass

I don't like Star Wars anyway. I think the show will be the same quality as the Young Indiana Jones TV show.

There's no stopping him

The Star Wars franchise officially feels like the "Planet of the Apes" franchise. Can anyone tell me why?

I cant even watch the original trilogy nor the Indy trilogy without having a bad taste in my mouth. why beat a dead horse while ruining something so likable.

have to agree with you down there...

i have lost my faith in george lucas..

this has nothing to do with what some of you condescendingly call being a "fanboy." It's the fact that this man created a successful franchise ((AND Indiana Jones)) and continued to exploit it for all its worth.

The cartoon network series is stupid and flat out boring as hell and lacks substance. Just because people want QUALITY WORK from a famous creator doesn't make us elitist or fanboys, it means we want them to deliver and not half-ass it,

I enjoyed them, but their quality wasn't anywhere near 4-6, that's just a fact. Sorry.

Until he shows he can continue telling a story without raping it first then I'm not jumping on the "get over it" bandwagon... Ill check it out, but im 90% sure it's gonna be lame, since no one cares what happened between 3 and 4....atleast i dont
