‘Star Wars’ May Also Be Heading to Television

Lucasfilm

With George Lucas out of Lucasfilm, a number of big changes have already happened. They’re developing ‘Star Wars Episode 7,’ and it looks like a long promised spin-off may be coming out of the mothballs. No, not another Ewok adventure, but the long rumored live-action ‘Star Wars‘ television show.

Talking to Entertainment Weekly, ABC’s entertainment president Paul Lee said that though “We haven’t even sat down with them” that “We’re going to look at [the live-action series], we’re going to look at all of them, and see what’s right. We weren’t able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed. It’s definitely going to be part of the conversation.”

As most ‘Star Wars’ fans know, there has long been talk of a television spin-off, but with the special effects required it was considered too cost prohibitive. As Disney now controls the property and owns ABC, it makes the possibility of this going forward all the more likely. And, as Lee mentions, there’s already a number of scripts that are finished.

Our guess is they wait to see how ‘S.H.I.E.L.D.‘ does first, as that is also taking one of the biggest franchises in cinema and doing it on a much smaller scale (for a much smaller screen). If audiences are on board with that, it very likely we could see Jedi adventures every Sunday at 8pm.
