So, will the New Live action series ever happen?? There has been no update on Underworld, as IMDB calls it, Lucas said it will be several years, but I reckon they will have to bring the budget level down by cutting back on scenes/sfx and other stuff. It will probably take a long, long time.
What is known is that it will concentrate on the fringes of Society, the Bounty Hunters, Smugglers, the struggle of ordinary Beings in the changing face of the Galaxy from Republic to Empire, which would be an interesting departure, though what has been seen, specifically of Bounty Hunters and Jabbas Palace in Empire Strikes Back and Return of the Jedi, makes it fsr more interesting.
I’ve got several dozen ideas myself, but will concentrate on my own material, although I am looking at doing more on an epic SF trilogy soon.
For now, enjoy Star Wars Day and May the Fourth be with you!
