STAR WARS TV – Star Wars: Underworld?
Are you ready to head to Underworld? No, you won’t bump into Kate Beckinsale’s Seline because that’s a totally different franchise. This is Star Wars: Underworld and it might actually make it to TV one of these days if technology ever catches up.
I don’t know about you, but I’ve kind of put the whole idea of a Star Wars TV series in the ‘when pigs fly’ category, but producer Rick McCallum recently told IGN that the project is still a go. He also revealed that the working title for the show is Star Wars: Underworld. I like the way he slipped that ‘working title’ bit in there because that means things could change before the show actually makes it to the small screen, although I hope the title stays because it fits the premise perfectly.
Star Wars: Underworld, which already has 50 scripts written that are just sitting on a shelf somewhere, deals with events in the Star Wars universe that take place behind the scenes. Forget about Luke and Han because they’re off fighting a huge intergalactic war somewhere. This show deals with the criminals and villains, the power players hiding in the shadows that control more than they seem to.
I think it’s a great idea but technology, and the funding for some of that technology, makes a weekly live-action series come with a hefty price tag, and McCallum says, “the idea is just that we hold off, wait and see if there are any major breakthroughs in the next year or two.”
Personally, I think the fantasy of a live-action Star Wars TV series needs to finally be laid to rest and a more realistic look should be given to an animated series. After all, The Clone Wars have shown that an animated Star Wars adventure has no problem at all with finding an audience, and an animated Star Wars: Underground might actually stand a chance at being made sometime in our lifetime.
