Lucasfilm will not be working on any live action Star Wars series for the small screen.

That’s according to ABC chief Channing Dungey, who was asked about developments in that area following reports after the Disney acquisition that a live action show was on the cards.

We have had some conversations in general about wanting to find a way to bring something from the Lucas Star Wars Universe to ABC, but that’s far into the future,” he said.

The focus at the moment for Lucas is on the current stuff that they’re doing on the film side and then, of course, they do have the stuff that they are doing on XD.”

Sad news but then again I’d much prefer a Netflix originated Star Wars series. What would you guys/gals prefer?

Hi all. I'm Bash and love anything and everything to do with Star Wars. Although I've watched hundreds of movies, read dozens of books and played numerous computer games from other genres and franchises since, nothing has come close to seeing George Lucas' epic for the very first time. I hope you all like the site and come back often.
