KYLE KATARN!? Edit

OH MY GOSH. They've said that the Death Start plans will be (somewhat) involved... Which COULD mean.. KYLE KATARN! He's deffinately one of my favorite characters, but is there really anything that could mean an appearance (or even a cameo) from Katarn? --The_Wolfe 21:42, 2 February 2008 (UTC)

  • I wouldn't hold my breath -- the Death Star plans haven't exactly had a consistent story behind them, and I doubt that the series will be anymore helpful Falmarin 11:03, 24 August 2008 (UTC)

HBO Edit

"It is possible that FOX or FX will carry it, as 20th Century Fox owns the Star Wars franchise." - I believe that last bit is incorrect. Lucasfilm owns the Star Wars franchise. They have contracted with 20th Century Fox to distribute the movies. (There was film industry speculation before the Phantom Menace that Lucas was planning on switching to Dreamworks SKG.) -- Austicke 10:31, 27 May 2005 (UTC)

  • According to the Internet Movie Database, Lucas is looking at HBO.Gethralkin 17:44, 18 November 2008 (UTC)
    • A clear and maybe not confirmed, but updated channel would be helpful. On the personal side, i would hope that Fox or FX would carry the series, mainly as Fox would be best for marketing and viewing numbers, as it is included for Basic Cable and the rest. Liberater444 05:45, 26 November 2008 (UTC)
      • HBO is still so far being pursued.Gethralkin 19:04, 23 December 2008 (UTC)
        • I think OP has a good point since HBO is a premium channel...personally if they put it on HBO i'll just download it off bitcomet but i hope for Fox or atleast ABC (preferably fox since they seem to advertise their shows better than ABC does)
          • I think it would be a bad idea for them to broadcast the show on HBO, as the majority of Americans still do not have premium cable channels such as that. I personally hope it would be on FOX, as I do not have cable... RS 17:40, 17 July 2009 (UTC)
            • Still HBO as far as latest reports are concerned. I don't have cable either, but a cable series usually has the expected result of turning out DVDs. GethralkinHyperwave 21:08, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

New Wikipedia'd article Edit

Now that this article has been overwritten by Adamwankenobi as a copy from Wikipedia but with various sections edited out, can someone compare this to the Wikipedia version and see if we need to add anything. -- Riffsyphon1024 01:52, 3 Sep 2005 (UTC)

TheForce.Net report Edit

How accurate could that "TheForce.Net reports" section of the article be? The part I found strange was that it refered to the Jedi as "old-fashioned, pure & chaste Jedi" while the Jedi article says the Jedi were not chaste. This might seem like a dumb comment, but I just thought it was strange that TheForce.net would refer to the Jedi as "pure & chaste" when they apparently weren't. and I doubt the accuracy of their report.

That's the great thing about that section: we can report other people's reports, without them being assumed official or a fact. TFN is a pretty reliable source anyway, and anything they report is usually well-verified. Adamwankenobi 03:06, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)
That "report" is totally bogus. Kuralyov 03:12, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Oh well. :( Adamwankenobi 03:19, 28 Nov 2005 (UTC)
Surely "Darth Teros" gave some clue as to this report's dubious validity? Sounds worse than SuperShadow - Kwenn 17:20, 13 February 2006 (UTC)

Shot on consumer-level digital cameras? Edit

The show will be shot on consumer-level digital cameras, according to series creator, George Lucas.

What does it mean? What does consumer-level digital cameras look like? And what does have to do with it? Amateurs?

I have no proof, but being in the broadcasting business, I did a bit of research, I came up with this as the most likely camera they would use: http://bssc.sel.sony.com/BroadcastandBusiness/DisplayModel?id=80897 --Apprentice_Anakin 05:42, 22 February 2006 (UTC)

Most likely it means they'll be shooting on one of Sony's cheap HD cameras, in the sub-$10000 range. I don't like them myself..I'd more personally recommend a Panasonic HVX-200, all around better image. But meh :P And of course, the Red.com camera owns everything, ever.

  • Any example of a show which uses these cameras? Gustafar 21:37, 26 May 2007 (UTC)
I was surprised to read that they were going to use a consumer level camera. I don't think fans are going to be happy with the less than superb quality of that which we have seen from the films. These cameras do not have the capability to reproduce the richness of color that professional cameras offer. TrueJedi 14:02, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
  • Consumer level...that wouldn't happen to be the camera type used in many British Sci-Fi productions would it (Dr. Who, Sarah Jane adventures, etc.)? I wouldn't mind that. It actually has a tendency of allowing CGI to blend better with live action if used correctly.--Logan Felipe 07:31, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
  • These are most likely to be prosumer level digicams (better than an HVX-200, worse than the Genesis). Prosumer and consumer cameras look great with 35mm lens attachments, which mimic DoF found in actual 35mm film/chip-sized cameras. Alot of shows nowadays go this direction. An example of a barebones setup would be Arrested Development, which actually used DVX-100 digicams (at standard def). As far as richness of color, consumer level cameras can actaully be modified and pushed to create a richer palette. I have no doubt that the cameras used on set for this series will be tricked out in some fasion or another. -- Falmarin 11:09, 24 August 2008 (UTC)
  • I'm a filmmaker. I would guess that they'll use a RED, which is a so totally cool camera... costs about $10K last I checked, though it might be more with the new upgrade. I've seen a film shot on the RED and it is just as good as a 'commercial' camera. - Kondrael, 7-28-10

Ewan's involvment Edit

When has Ewan stated that he'd be willing to make an appearance? I thought his enjoyment of being involved in the series dwindled... 71.114.96.84 19:36, 15 March 2006 (UTC) (Posted by Duke Starhopper - forgot to log in)

  • He apparently didn't like the excessive greenscreen work, but as a big Star Wars fan himself, I don't think he's become disillusioned or anything—not like Obi-Wan Senior, Sir Alec, who reportedly hated having his name connected with Star Wars - Kwenn 15:23, 18 April 2006 (UTC)
    • The reports of him hating Star Wars are second-hand and controversial. It is correct that he may not do any more because of the difficulty of greenscreening, which he has commented on. Other than that he is a huge fan, even personally going to Tunisia, the Star Wars mecca. However, until he is official listed as being cast, his inclusion in the TV-series is speculation and not article worthy. Gethralkin 14:51, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Madonna? Edit

Did anyone else see that Madonna could be apart of the show?--Dil 17:05, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

Remember that today is April Fools Day. Adamwankenobi 17:14, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
I see so it could be just a joke right?--Dil 21:02, 1 April 2006 (UTC)
It is a joke. Adamwankenobi 21:06, 1 April 2006 (UTC)

No Rebel victories? Edit

Isn't this fan-conjecture with no official statements behind it? The opening crawl always said "Rebel spaceships, striking from a hidden base, have won their first victory against the evil Galactic Empire." This needn't mean anything other than fighters from a specific base winning their first battle. Since EU showed other pre-ANH wins as well, I'm going to remove it. VT-16 15:20, 18 April 2006 (UTC)

SuperShadow Edit

Since when do we have to include SuperShadow's claims into our articles? - TopAce 09:25, 30 April 2006 (UTC)

  • Never, never, never, never, never

Dissapointment Edit

I am dissapointed over what I read in an interview with Rick McCallum over at ComingSoon.net http://comingsoon.net/news/movienews.php?id=14365. According to him (about the show) "Think bounty hunter. That's all I can tell you. There's nobody else that you'll know [in it]."

We can easily assume that this will be Boba Fett. Of course that quote doesn't rule out appearances by surviving Jedi and the occasional cameos by Ewan or Yoda but I think I will miss some of the characters and events that should be in this (eg. Vader and the Purge, Prince Xizor, beginning of Yoda's exile.)

For more info on the 3D movies and Clone Wars show visit the link above.

66.176.13.157 23:27, 3 May 2006 (UTC)

  • Not necessarily. I quote McCallum from the ROTS DVD press conference last year: "We are just starting to interview writers and trying to really figure out which direction to go to. He envisions somewhere like 100 hours between Episode III and Episode IV with a lot of characters that we haven't met that have been developed in some of the novels and other things. We are really excited about that. Finally, we could have the opportunity to answer everybody's questions once and for all by the time we finish the series." AdamwankenobiTalk to me! My home. 23:30, 3 May 2006 (UTC)
  • Does anyone know whether or not Quinlan Vos is going to get some screen time in this? I'd be real interested to see what his final fate was, maybe with that meeting of a young Han Solo that was described on Quinlan Vos. It would be a dissapointment to me...The Ravager 02:09, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Well Lucas seems to like the character, and given that he reads the comics, it's a good bet Quinlan will show up in some form or another in the series. AdamwankenobiTalk to me! My home. 02:31, 19 June 2006 (UTC)
  • I don't think it has to be Boba... what about people like Aurra Sing? She still counts. Maybe she's out exterminating Jedi. Piequals3 06:23, 31 May 2007 (UTC)
  • As far as can be determined, Anthony Daniels will be returning to reprise his role as C-3PO.Gethralkin 17:47, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

G or C Edit

Does anyone have any idea what level of canon the 2nd and future seasons would be? It is cirten that the first season will be G with Lucas's role in the first season, however that leaves the future seasons cannon level shadey and is confuseing wether it will be be G or C? DX-2052 21:28, 1 June 2006 (UTC)

  • G-canon, I'd assume, since Lucas is directly involved. Also, I think the canon level would apply to the whole project, as defined from the outset - Kwenn 21:31, 1 June 2006 (UTC)
    • Its basically a load of mini-movies, so it would be G-Canon. Jasca Ducato 20:14, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
      • It'll be C. I base this on the fact that Lucas also had direct involvement with the Ewok films, and they are considered C. AdamwankenobiTalk to me! My home. 20:18, 8 June 2006 (UTC)
    • I'm sorry for the n00by question, but what exactly is the difference between G & C level canon? Or can someone give me a link to an article on it? Thanks in advance. 81.157.112.69 18:41, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
      • Canon. Basically, G-canon is anything directly from Lucas, C-canon is pretty much everything else, other than Infinities. Of course, it depends on how involved Lucas is with this series. I think if he writes it, it'll be G - Kwenn 18:49, 24 July 2006 (UTC)
    • Okay, thanks :) Calaros 18:52, 24 July 2006 (UTC)

2006? Edit

I heard (recently) that the show is being released this fall. Any confirmation on this? Skywalka 11:08, 16 June 2006 (UTC)

  • Impossible. They haven't even started production, much less finalized any scripts for it. -- Riffsyphon1024 09:13, 6 July 2006 (UTC)
  • The show was announced at ComicCon (I think) to come out in 2010, however speculation pushes back to 2011.Gethralkin 17:49, 18 November 2008 (UTC)

Anime? Edit

About a year ago, I read an Animation Magazine article in which the Star Wars live-action TV series was mentioned, as well as Lucas' desire to operate in anime. I have heard no word of the matter ever since. Does anyone know more on this subject? Could a Star Wars anime be far, far away? It would definitely be awesome. MC Otaku 10:08, 5 July 2006 (UTC)

neither are anime. anime means it was made in japan it doesnt refer to any style at all. so if it is made in america it means its just a normal cartoon. just because it looks anime doesnt mean it is. Ralok 01:08, 3 August 2007 (UTC)

GL tells Mtv Edit

"None of the Skywalker story, none of that stuff is in there, " he explained, shooting down any depiction of a young Han Solo acquiring the Millennium Falcon or running with Lando Calrissian. "It's completely different. The animated series has got all the characters in it. The one that comes after, the live-action one, is with people who were in 'Star Wars, ' but they're not the main characters."

Lucas said the plot will be steered by characters such as Tie-Fighter or Rebel pilots, most only briefly glimpsed in the six "Star Wars" films." TFN "GL talks to Mtv about Live-Action Series

  • That makes it sound like the story of Rogue Squadron GMo 16:44, 10 October 2006 (UTC)
    • Yes, it does seem so. -- Riffsyphon1024 21:34, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
      • Fascinating. Adamwankenobi 21:39, 11 October 2006 (UTC)
        • Is anyone not enthralled by Rogue Squadron or bounty hunters? I personally would rather see Jedi and dissenting milatary officers as the main characters, and I admit that some bounty hunters being tossed in would be nice. I was really hoping it would be aimed at escapees and runaways. Purpilia 00:08, 14 February 2007 (UTC)

Cast Edit

Good news everyone, Anthony Daniels has signed on to appear as C-3PO in the Star Wars TV Show! supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 19:11, 26 February 2007 (UTC)

  • What's your source, Supergeeky? If this is legit, it belongs in Wookieenews too, I'd say. Gonk 19:16, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
    • Well I first got it off of Wikipedia, but they got the source from http://www.ananova.com/entertainment/story/sm_1763134.html. supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 19:20, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
      • And yet SW.com hasn't updated with this? 'Cause it seems big to me. Suspiciously big. Could this be another case of Internet rumormongering a la "Kenneth Branagh is Obi-Wan!!"? Gonk 19:22, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
        • Reverted. We really should have seen some corroboration SOMEwhere about this. But if you did in fact scoop everyone else in the SW community, we can always put it back! Gonk 23:12, 26 February 2007 (UTC)
          • It's on Wikipedia, does that mean we're gonna have to take it off of that too? I think we should put it back in unless we get official conformation against it. It's not like SuperStupid said it, it was, what looks like, a realiable source. supergeeky1 BobaFett The Cantina 01:48, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
            • Lack of official confirmation against doesn't simply confirm it to be true. -- Ozzel 01:53, 27 February 2007 (UTC)
              • The Ananova article refers to the London Daily Mirror, which IIRC was also the erroneous source of the rumor that Harrison Ford had been approached by Lucas about a sequel trilogy. Methinks the Mirror is in the habit of this sort of disinfo. Gonk 02:14, 27 February 2007 (UTC)

Clone Wars? Edit

He says it's during the Clone Wars... Then it's between ep I and II... Explenation please? This is from March 3rd so it's pretty recent... Gustafar 17:18, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

  • Different series. The live-action series will be set between III and IV, what George Lucas was talking about was the new 3D Clone Wars series. As to why he said it's between I and II, even the great creator is allowed to make a mistake every once in a while. Green Tentacle (Talk) 17:23, 11 March 2007 (UTC)
  • I thought he was talking about the 3D Clone Wars, but they asked for the "television series" quite simply. Oh well. Thanks mate. Gustafar 18:48, 11 March 2007 (UTC)

Rumors and speculation sectionEdit

I think that most of this section should be deleted. Where are these rumors coming from? Message boards? Many of the "rumors" are written as facts and that is misleading. For example it says it is likely that Fox will air the show. I don't think that's necessarily true at all. I say reword most of the points to make it clear that they are rumors/fan theories and either source them all or delete them. - breathesgelatinTalk 09:44, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

  • I agree. And we don't need to keep fan theories on the main page. I'm gonna be bold and delete all of them except the "according to Rick McCallum" one, which does indeed still need a source. Gonk (Gonk!) 11:41, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
    • Correction. Someone else should be bold to that effect. (I forgot the page was locked! By my request! Tee hee...) Gonk (Gonk!) 11:42, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
    • OK. I think we are on the same page. I am going to delete the rumors except for the Rick McCallum one. If you would like to put them back, PROVIDE SOURCING. My concern generally with the "rumors and speculation" sections is that they can be valid, but a lot of times I feel like people just use that section to include their own personal fan theory rather than citing actual theories put forth by fans, at say, theforce.net forums. - breathesgelatinTalk 18:46, 26 June 2007 (UTC)
    • It seems you already succeeded in doing so. Awesome. - breathesgelatinTalk 18:55, 26 June 2007 (UTC)

George Lucas' 400Edit

400 episodes. By my humble estimates, that could well mean twenty years of SW on TV. Twenty years! Before this, I was convinced it would be possible to someday finish this Wiki, seeing as 30 years of SW has been quite well covered in what, three years of Wookieepedias existence? But this...we'll never be finished. DarthMRN 02:46, 16 July 2007 (UTC)

  • And we will keep going until it dies, which is basically never!! :D -- Riffsyphon1024 07:05, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Truly finishing would be extremely difficult to manage anyways. Besides, covering 20 years in 20 years will be easier than covering 30 years in 2.5 years. If anything, the longer Star Wars goes on, the better our position will be (in terms of completeness) when it finally does end. Finally, I will be surprised if 400 episodes actually get made. --LtNOWIS 07:53, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
  • He was talking about there being multiple TV shows. He might have meant 400 episodes in total among all the planned shows. I don't think anyone here seriously thinks that this live-action show will last as long as Doctor Who. Kuralyov 21:22, 16 July 2007 (UTC)
    • Well he said that there would be multiple stories focusing on the different characters. What if there are four shows/episodes a week? Bioevil087 (Mara’s Ex)Jedi Order 05:06, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
    • I never thought about that. -- Riffsyphon1024 05:08, 17 July 2007 (UTC)
      • Exactly. We've got to keep in mind that Lucas does his own thing, and often differs from Hollywood. ;) Adamwankenobi 23:14, 18 July 2007 (UTC)
        • Also, you have to remember...this is Rick McCallum. Anything he says should probably be taken with a barrel of salt. Kuralyov 22:15, 20 July 2007 (UTC)

Assuming there is one continuous series airing for 400 episodes, the number might not be as far-fetched as it sounds. As mentioned above, having multiple shows each week could make it a high-volume show (the first season of Mighty Morphin Power Rangers had over 60 episodes during its initial run in 1993), while a weekly run gives a broad range of possibilities ranging from 20+ (26 episodes, one per week running continuously for half the year, for most Star Trek incarnations; vs. 10-15 for shows like The Sopranos). By all of these calculations, a broad number like 400, assuming it comes true, could mean any number of things. Unsigned comment by [[User:{{{1}}}|{{{1}}}]] ([[User talk:{{{1}}}|talk]] • [[Special:Contributions/{{{1}}}|contribs]]).

  • Also, remember how many different spin-offs there were for Star Trek? Lucas has said there would be multiple shows. GethralkinHyperwave 21:40, October 1, 2009 (UTC)

Timeline Edit

I think it shouldn't imply that it starts exactly 19bby and finishes in 0, it probably takes place more in the middle and might actually start a bit before and end after. Basically, unless it's been clearly specified, we should probably say approximately 19bby-0bby. 213.94.241.249 22:34, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

  • I've reworded it to make it sound less like that. Adamwankenobi 23:11, 18 July 2007 (UTC)

No Vader, Palpatine, or Jedi... Edit

According to Lucas in the September 24-30 issue of TV guide magazine, page 22: "The Emporer and Darth Vader are heard about —people talk about them—but you never see them" Then in the next sentence he says: "There are stormtroopers and all that, but no Jedis".

So all the speculation about Palpatine, Vader, and Jedi such as Yoda, Obi-wan and Quinlan Vos making cameos in the series seems to be false, since Lucas told TV guide that There won't be any Jedi in the series, and that the Emporer and Vader won't appear either. Someone should add this information to the article. 70.17.140.6 20:22, 17 September 2007 (UTC)

  • GL would never say Jedis. This information must be fake. - TopAce (Talk) 20:57, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
    • I copied it exactly the way it was written in TV guide magazine. check out the issue yourself if you want proof. 70.17.140.6 21:05, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
      • The reason TopAce doubts GL having said this is because Lucas refers to the plural of "Jedi" as "Jedi", not Jedis". I know that may seem a small issue but lucas wouldn't make a mistake like that unless he's control of his mind. TrueJedi 23:14, 24 November 2007 (UTC)
      • Here's proof that it's authentic. I scanned that page of TV guide: 70.17.140.6 21:38, 17 September 2007 (UTC)
        • Dude... ;_; The show is going to have to be damn good to do well as a Star Wars vehicle with absolutely no Jedi.Livingston (The Force will be with you. Always.) 06:04, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
          • I wouldn't trust such magazines, at least not as much as believing every single sentence they write/quote. - TopAce (Talk) 14:56, 18 September 2007 (UTC)
            • Apparently Kuralyov trusts what TV guide says, because he added the information (and the exact George Lucas quote) from that issue of TV guide magazine to the article. 151.203.188.217 03:41, 22 September 2007 (UTC)
              • Just a thought. should we include this is the article?
                • I would say no as it's not from an official Lucas source. TV guide may be a bit more reputable than other magazines, but not by much. If anything I would simply mention it in the behind the scenes section.--Livingston (The Force will be with you. Always.) 07:09, 17 October 2007 (UTC)
  • Guys, remember that even if it's Lucas saying this, it's bound to change when people simply aren't intertested in watching a SW series that lacks Jedi or any of the other elements that fans so dearly love. Lucas changed Jar Jar around so much because of fan and non-fan reaction and he often contradicts himself so I wouldn't worry about it. I would bet that we're going to see exactly what we want because otherwise the show will simply fail without the elements that made us love the saga in the first place. TrueJedi 14:08, 15 November 2007 (UTC)
    • I take it that Lucas could be misquoted too by the reporter. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:32, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

Joben et alEdit

Can we remove the AICN bit now? Seems to me McCallum's recent revelations—specifically that every character is new except Boba Fett—strongly suggest that particular report is, well, fanon. Gonk (Gonk!) 10:56, 30 October 2007 (UTC)

ContextEdit

"... a whole bunch of writers from literally all over the world – we have Australia left, that’s the last place we’re going to meet some people..."

  • What context is that meant to be in? "That's the only place left"? "As if we'll find anyone there?" Giga Hertz 11:22, 30 December 2007 (UTC)
    • I thought it simply meant, Australia is the last place where we're going to meet some people. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:29, 31 December 2007 (UTC)

approx. 1 hour per episodeEdit

400 episodes, 1 hour long each? Isn't that waaay too much? It should be sourced. Klow 11:22, 15 January 2008 (UTC)

  • Yes and I believe Rick McCallum said it or rather he wants 400 episodes, which means roughly 15-20 seasons worth of material, granted 100 is the current target. I believe it was in Insider where he said it. Also see the section above some ways. -- Riffsyphon1024 05:22, 16 January 2008 (UTC)
    • I'm pretty sure they're going for multiple spinoffs to be airing concurrently, which might allow them to do those 400 or so episodes in 5 years or so.Kaje 15:24, 30 January 2008 (UTC)
      • Yes, that is what he had been saying. -- Riffsyphon1024 06:17, 31 January 2008 (UTC)

Note regarding leia and padm'eEdit

  • McCallum says that leia's knowledge of her dead mother might be explained in the 2009 series. However, I thought I remember hearing some EU thing reconning by saying that Leia was referring to Breha Organa, though her time of death is unconfirmed. If this is true, then perhaps Breha will die somehow in this TV series. --Logan Felipe 07:28, 6 June 2008 (UTC)
  • Then again, Leia could have remebered/felt Padme through the force. JediNTT307 17:38, 29 July 2008 (UTC)

Renaming pageEdit

  • Shouldn't the page technically be called "Untitled Star Wars live-action series"? -WTRiker 17:36, 14 June 2008 (UTC)
    • There aren't any other live-action TV series, titled or otherwise, with which it can be confused. Concision wins over technicality. Dangerdan97 22:00, 20 October 2008 (UTC)
      • Speaking of which, why is the title conjecture? It's been confirmed that it's a Star Wars series, that it's live-action and that it's to be broadcast on television. 82.36.170.219 13:27, 26 February 2009 (UTC)
        • Because that's not what the show's going to be called when it's finally on the air (or in the cable, as it were.) —Silly Dan (talk) 13:29, 26 February 2009 (UTC)

Focusing around a ship?Edit

I read on the page that it gona be lilke BSG and Firefly,both focus around a ship.So will this series do the same,perhaps around a YT-1300 or a Star Destroyer.Sith-venator 18:17, 15 November 2008 (UTC)

  • I'd say the answer to that is 99% no. The other 1 percent is whatever Lucas has up his sleeve, which for all we know could be a bunch of Mandalorian Gungan Bounty Hunters... --The Wolfe22 01:16, 28 February 2009 (UTC)

Old characters return?Edit

Need help here. My friend claims to have heard that Bail Organa will be present in the Senate, and also Jar Jar Binks will also feature. Could anyone help me find a source for this information? -Scrayer 06:59, April 13th, 2009 (UTC)HoloNet broadcast here.

  • Hello? Answer, please!Scrayer 07:02, September 30, 2009 (UTC)
    • Ahem.Scrayer 06:23, January 16, 2011 (UTC)

Jedi Purge Edit

I sure hope that this will include things that have to do with the great jedi purge, such as the first duel on Felucia. robostuart@gmail.com 03:48, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

This is not a page for forum discussions, but for discussion on how to improve the article. ZEM talk to me! 04:10, 25 June 2009 (UTC)

SHAAK TIEdit

I think we all know that Shaak Ti will proubably make an appearence, since the series will have events from the Force Unleashed. But on the other hand, they said that Jedi will supposedly not make an appearence in the series, which really bummed me.Unsigned comment by 99.189.134.144 (talk • contribs).

  • Sigh* Nobody said it will feeture events from TFU. Sign your comments with ~~~~. MauserComlink 19:46, 26 June 2009 (UTC)
    • Well, it's in the article that there will be elements from TFU in the series. This information was even properly sourced. So while I think an appearance by Shaak Ti is unlikely, some elements might still appear. Depending on exactly when it's set, any of the characters, battles, or events might be shown or mentioned. It's an easy way to build on certain characters that fans like but we've only seen in TFU (Galen, Juno, Maris, etc.) But regardless of my speculation, SOMEONE put a properly-sourced tidbit of information in the article that there may be elements from The Force Unleashed and its multimedia project in this series.

I have ideas, but I guess it is too lateEdit

I have written a whole comic series in Legos, an d posted it on the Lego website MOCpages. It fits in with Star Wars official canon, but I guess much of the show is already written. I wsh I could find some way to contact the writers of the show and possily showcase my ideas to them, but I guess that may be unrealistic. If anybody knows a way for me to contact the writers of the show regarding this matter, it would be mucly appreciated. RS 17:38, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

  • Unfortunately, this isn't the place to seek that information. I'd suggest one of the many Star Wars forums that are available on the net to try and find what you're looking for. Dangerdan97 18:29, 17 July 2009 (UTC)

Delayed again? Edit

I just got my 2009 Star Wars Hyperspace membership kit, and George Lucas states in the introduction letter, "We're also doing a lot of preliminary work on the eventual live-action Star Wars series, but that's still several years away and too early to talk about in specific terms." (Emphasis added) 2010 is most definitely not "several years away"—rather, only one—so it appears that this has been delayed yet again. I'd put it in the article myself, but I'm not sure of the best way to do it and I just don't have time right now. —Master Jonathan(Jedi Council Chambers) 20:18, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

  • I did the best I think of. If anyone can do better, please do. Gethralkin 15:17, 3 August 2009 (UTC)
  • From Wikipedia: On May 8, 2010, at the 30th Anniversary Screening of Empire Strikes Back held at the Field Museum in Chicago, IL, Lucas was asked about the current status of the live action show. He admitted that production of the show was currently on hold: "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. The source is linked in Wikipedia but wookiepedia didn't like me adding the link without registering. Unsigned comment by 130.76.96.23 (talk • contribs).

Tuskens annd others Edit

Does anyone think that there will be appearances by Tusken Raiders and A'sharad Hett in the show?

Tuskens perhaps, A'sharad Hett no, he's a jedi. there will be no jedi. --Tetsu Aero 21:34, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

  • Please, note the talkheader at the top of the page. This page is not for speculation. ShaakTi1138 21:38, January 6, 2010 (UTC)

They should show the duel Edit

This series is supposed to be set during Episode III and IV, yeah? Well i'd love for the series to show the duel betwen A'Sharad Hett and Obi-wan Kenobi on Tatooine that occurs in 17 BBY, or show the Ferus Olin adventure.


Lucas: "The Emperor and Darth Vader are heard about — people talk about them — but you never see them because it doesn't take place where they actually are. There are stormtroopers and all that, but there are no Jedis." So does that mean no lightsaber fights, the trademark of the Star Wars universe?

I hope Ferus Olin, Trever Flume, Dexter Jetster, or atleast Solace will be in it! It would be the perfect time to show them (18 BBY)

Disney Edit

The Disney sale places development in Disney hands. There is little likelihood this concept will be pursued. Disney always prefers it's own vision, to that of others.--Bosda Di'Chi (talk) 20:13, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

  • Fifty episodes and a TV movie have already been written. If Lucas wants it to be made, it will be made. Unfortunately, he tends to spend an average of 20 years developing his projects. Adamwankenobi (talk) 23:17, November 14, 2012 (UTC)

Change title (again)? Edit

On Wikipedia, the title of this article was at one point Star Wars: Underworld, but was apparently changed back to "Star Wars live-action TV series (see discussion) because producer Rick McCallum denied reports that Underworld was the working title. I would confirm this myself, but the source given doesn't seem to want to load for me. —C Teng (talk) 17:28, August 18, 2013 (UTC) 17:27, August 18, 2013 (UTC)

  • Considering the recent developments I think it's safe to say that this product is a goner and discussing a change of its name would come as kind of pointless ;). Winterz (talk) 19:29, August 18, 2013 (UTC)

Legends, canon or neither? Edit

As this show is unproduced, I'm unsure if it should be categorized as legends. It would seem more appropriate to me for it to be left uncategorized for now until we get a definitive statement on whether this show will ever go forward. Adamwankenobi (talk) 19:29, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

  • It's neither right now since it was never produced. - Brandon Rhea(talk) 19:51, June 25, 2014 (UTC)

re: Ree-Yees Edit

The section Star_Wars:_Underworld#Cast_and_characters mentions (but does not link to) Re-Yees. i assume this is a Ree-Yees typo. or Ree-Yees/Legends, given the time.
