ABC’s Star Wars Live-Action TV Show in the Works


We first heard about a Star Wars live-action TV series back in 2005 when George Lucas announced plans for the same. After Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney for over $4 billion last year, ABC Entertainment Group’s President Paul Lee said earlier this year that the TV series might become a reality in the future. And now, Lee is saying:

We’ve started conversations with them. I have an inkling in my mind, but they have a lot on their plate”.

So ABC has already started talks with Lucasfilm, which is currently planning to release Star Wars Episode VII in 2015 followed by two other movies. You should note that these are just preliminary talks, so it’s too early to say for sure that the TV series is indeed coming. But even if it is coming, we are not sure whether it will be aired before the first film in the third trilogy.

Meanwhile, Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. will hit TV on September 24. We can check that out to get an idea about how Disney will do with a Star Wars TV Show.

So what are your thoughts on a Star Wars TV series? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    My thought… WANT!

    Give me something set in one of several time periods: The Old Republic (Revan’s time or Bane’s time), The Dark Times, between the Original movies, post Return of the Jedi, or post episode VII (but only after it is released and doesnt spoil eps VIII).

    Keep the popular and key EU characters but I’ll forgive Disney/Lucasfilm/ABC if they overwrite EU cannon (especially if its one of its many weaker stories though for the better stories if they overwrite it I would like them to honor them at least). For example please overwrite Darksaber all you want Disney, but with the Thrawn Trilogy overwrite but only if you keep Thrawn, Mara Jade, and The other characters in it but doing totally new stuff. Aka Yoda said “always in motion is the future” so the characters should still be around but maybe the EU was just one possible future that never happened… though respect the more popular stories. So Mara Jade doesnt have to marry Luke as she does in the books, but if Luke is to have kids at least make Mara Jade the mother.
