Producer and longtime George Lucas collaborator Rick McCallum dropped some key hints about the long-planned live-action Star Wars
TV show - the one that supposedly has 50 scripts already written and is just waiting for the costs of visual effects to drop before moving forward. McCallum revealed the show's working title is Star Wars: Underworld
, it is indeed set between Revenge of the Sith
and A New Hope
, that "it's about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over]"
, and that the show's primary focus will be on the criminal underbelly of theStar Wars
universe. McCallum elaborates:"It's underneath what's going on. It's the criminals and the gangs. The guys who are running Wall Street, basically. The guys who are running the United States."
It's going to be interesting to find out the budget this show has and how long the subtitle "Underworld" will stick on this project.[io9]
