Surely, the first thing that came to people’s minds when they heard Disney bought out Lucasfilm was the possibility of more “Star Wars” films. That one was a given. Well, it turns out that Disney has much more in mind than just another “Star Wars” trilogy, how about a live action TV series as well?
ABC entertainment president Paul Lee recently told Entertainment Weekly that he was indeed interested in collaborating with Lucasfilm on a TV series the company had shelved a couple of years ago. “We’d love to do something with Lucasfilm, we’re not sure what yet,” Lee told the magazine. “We haven’t even sat down with them. We’re going to look at [the live-action series], we’re going to look at all of them, and see what’s right. We weren’t able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed. It’s definitely going to be part of the conversation.”
This is a joke right? PLEASE tell me this is a joke! This sound like a complete and utter train wreck of a series.
I don’t know, maybe I’m being too cynical. There are plenty of TV shows to like in this genre so perhaps if they get the right writers. But Star Wars has already been messed up so badly, but its own creator that I have a hard time believing this could be any good.
