Some of you may remember that a live action (not cartoon) series was in the works by Lucasfilm several years back but got scrapped because the budget would to be big for television. It was brought up again in 2013 and was allegedly titled Star Wars: Underworld with 50 scripts being written for it already.
Back to the present. Rumors have it that a live action series may be ramping up behind the scenes at Disney now. MakingStarWars.net reports this along with the rumor that J.J. Abrams may be directing Episode IX as well. No clue yet whether the original idea for the show is being kept, along with it’s scripts, or if this is something completely different.
All rumors now of course, but I was excited about a live action Star Wars show back then and I’m very happy to hear that it might still be a reality.
