Hey Battlefrontians, unfotunately there has been no news or developments on Battlefront 3 yet, so I thought I would post some other Star Wars news. As it turns out, there will be a new live action Star Wars series with the working title, “Star Wars: Underworld”. This in my humbled opinion is pretty sweet!
The storyline will take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and according to IO9.com they have almost 50 scripts written!
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 the Star 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.”
I’d love to hear everyone’s opinion on the Live Action series. Some of my buddies absolutley love the idea and some hate it.
