Star Wars TV Show?

March 26th, 2006 | Category: News

“The proposed Star Wars TV series will run at least 100 episodes if all goes according to plan,” Rick McCallum told the BBC recently. McCallum has been George Lucas’ producing partner for a long time, so hopefully this is a good sign of some exciting add-ons to the already great movies.

The episodes would show what happened with the life of Luke Skywalker for 20 years between Episode III and Episode IV. Official reports say:

– 100 episodes
– 1 hour each
– Based on a spin-off character
– Lucas will direct first season
– Write season one at one time
– Film season one at one time
– Takes place between Episode III and Episode IV

The series is being constructed in a new Singapore facility and at Skywalker ranch. The CGI (Computer generated image) animation will be done at a cost of 1 million dollars per episode. There will be a showcase at the San Diego Comic Con in 2007 and the first episodes will air sometime in 2008.

Hopefully this will be something that all the Star Wars fans will enjoy if it is done well. The series will also provide some inside information on what the story was with Luke’s childhood, for those who are too lazy to read anyway.
