George Lucas Has 50 Hours Worth of ‘Star Wars’ TV Show Scripts
But he says he is waiting for the development of a new technology to make shooting financially feasible.
NEW YORK – George Lucas says 50 hours of scripts have been written for a Star Wars live-action TV show, but is waiting for a technological breakthrough to make shooting financially feasible and get the series on the air, the New York Post reported Tuesday.
Lucas previously said that the much-anticipated show, set between the Star Wars films Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, was on hold.
The Post said that Lucas told cable network G4 that the project is in a holding pattern as his team looks for "a different type of technology we can use so it's economically feasible to shoot the shows."
He explained that television has to be produced for a tenth of the cost of movies, but the ability to make his show credible at that cost doesn't exist yet. Without giving a possible timeline, he called the development of a cheaper production technology “a very difficult process.”
An animated TV show, Star Wars: The Clone Wars, is coming back to Cartoon Network for its fourth season this fall.
