A Live-Action STAR WARS Show Is Today's Hot New Rumor

"A galaxy far, far away..." may soon be coming to a television screen near you. A live-action Star Wars television show is reportedly in development. Read on for details on how the show would potentially look to match the high-level production values of the new Star Wars trilogy.

According to Cinelinx via /Film, a live-action Star Wars television show is secretly in development which will use the same sets constructed at Pinewood Studios in London.  Reportedly, the show is in a holding pattern until the new Star Wars trilogy and the Star Wars spinoff films are all mapped out.  The television show would then shoot between films, when Pinewood and the Star Wars sets were available.  This plan is sounds fairly similar to Ron Howard's plan for a live-action adaptation of Stephen King's The Dark Tower book series.  

This would not be the first time a live-action Star Wars TV show was in the development stage.  Prior to Disney's acquisition of LucasFilm, George Lucas tried in vain to get a live-action Star Wars television program of the ground to no avail.  Following Disney's purchase, ABC (owned by Disney) president Paul Lee stated that a Star Wars television program would be something the network would definitely consider.  Perhaps those considerations are close to approaching a tangible reality?  Consider this a rumor for now but expect the many Hollywood trade scoopers to begin investigations to confirm or debunk without delay.
