Wondering what ever happened to that live-action Star Wars TV show? Well, turns out the project is on hold due to the overwhelming amount of money it would cost to bring it to the small screen.
I don’t know why this is only coming into focus today, but here’s what Rebelscum reported back in May (where Lucas spoke to fans in front of a special ‘Empire Strikes Back’ screening) about the live-action series:
“The live action TV show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don’t know how to do ‘em. Because, they literally are Star Wars, only we’re going to have to try to do them…a tenth the cost. And, it’s a huge challenge…lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be.”
Doesn’t sound like the show has been dropped though. More like it’s just going to take a bit longer to come together.
