Star Wars Live Action TV Series is Still Happening

The long awaited Live Action Star Wars TV Show has been inching forward, but not forgotten. At the recent DragonCon, Lucasfilm exec Steve Sansweet had a little to say on the topic.

AICN spills

“Writers” have been working on the project. (But which writers? Refugees from the “Theshold” or “Life On Mars” writers room? Anybody know anything?)

* Preproduction would begin in 2009.

* Production would begin in 2010.

* The series will likely begin airing in 2012. (Earlier estimates put it in 2011.)

We still know little about the series aside beyond the fact that it’s set between the death of Padme and Emperor Palpatine’s dissolution of the Imperial Senate.

Personally I hope that the TV Series takes a far different approach than the kid friendly Clone Wars animated series. While I don’t hate the series, I would prefer that a less kiddie version of Star Wars is offered up.

An adventure of a non-rebel, non-alliance, non-clone character would be a great starting point to bring about an unrelated story that isn’t so tied up in all the Galactic Struggles. Give us something that shows how the rest of the Star Wars Universe lives! Not every story has to be on a galactic scale.

I have high hopes (as I do with every Star Wars product) but I worry they will give us C3P-90210: Angsty Droids In Love.
