Star Wars producer Rick McCallum spoke to IGN recently about the long in development live action (real actors!) Star Wars TV series, revealing a new title, plot details and production problems.
The new series will be called Star Wars: Underworld and takes "place between Episode III and Episode IV, that 20-year period when Luke is growing up," he said. "It's not about Luke, but it's about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over]."
Apparently George Lucas has fifty, one hour scripts ready to go. Each script, apparently, is "bigger than any of the prequels were. ... They're complex, they're dark, they're adult."
McCallum said they don't want to spend more than roughly $5 million per episode and until film technology is more advanced, they won't be going into production.
In other Star Wars news (if you haven't already heard!) George Lucas is releasing all six Star Wars films all over again in 3D (hasn't he milked the films enough as it is?!).
Star Wars: Episode I The Phantom Menace is coming to theaters in 3D February 10, 2012. The other films will be released in story order in the coming years.
