A new rumor has recently emerged that the galaxy far, far away could be looking to increase its television presence exponentially, with a brand new live-action show that would tie into the larger universe soon to be established by Walt Disney Films . . .
The site Cinelinx is reporting that a new Star Wars series is indeed ramping up, set to be shot in the same Pinewood locations as the upcoming movies. Allegedly, the new show has been on the back burner at Disney while schedules for the movies are finalized.
At the moment this is merely a rumor, so fans frothing at the mouth for a live-action show should keep those grains of salt handy. We would also be wise to remember that shortly after the release of 2005′s Revenge of the Sith, George Lucas had plotted out 100 episodes for a new series, titled Star Wars: Underworld. Described as “The Empire Strikes Back on steroids” in regards to tone and size.
That unfortunately, never came to fruition, but even now the concept is far from a given. So we’ll have to wait and see what becomes of this latest Star Wars TV rumor. We’ll certainly keep you updated on this upcoming project as more information becomes available . . .
