RUMOR: Success Of AGENTS OF S.H.I.E.L.D. Renews Talk Of A STAR WARS TV Series
The massive success of Marvel's Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. on ABC (and various international networks) has apparently resulted in renewed talks of developing a live-action Star Wars TV series; however, it may not be as dark as originally planned. Read on for details!
When Disney purchased Lucasfilm for $4 billion, plans for a Star Wars TV series seemingly became even more unlikely than they already were. After all, it had been stuck in development hell for a number of years, but plans for a new trilogy of movies put the project on hold indefinitely. Well, according to Blue Sky Disney, Disney are now reconsidering plans to bring the Galaxy Far, Far Away to the small screen. According to the site, "it might not be the dark brooding adventure that was described. There is talk going on, but nothing definite yet as to what a new series could entail. In fact, it may not even happen in the time it was originally set. Again, preliminary talks are still going on so many things could change but right now there's a debate as to whether or not a television show would take place in between the Prequel Trilogy and the Original Trilogy, or should they go forward with a series that's between the Original Trilogy and the Sequel Trilogy. This way they could play on the new mythos this new trilogy is creating." However, they also stress that the series once known as Star Wars: Underworld is simply being discussed at this point and that there are no definite plans as of yet. Regardless, the massive success of Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has clearly shown them that there's potential for big screen franchises to be spun off to television, so stay tuned for further updates on this possible project!
