Star Wars live action series has working title

January 10th, 2012 by bash Comments

Star Wars producer Rick McCallum has revealed that the long awaited live action TV series has a working title… Star Wars: Underworld.

While the show is still on hold because of money issues, McCallum told IGN that the series wouldn’t be too far off and that it would concentrate on the “criminals and gangs” of the Star Wars universe.

“It’s underneath what’s going on,” he said. “It’s the criminals and the gangs. The guys who are running Wall Street, basically. The guys who are running the United States.”

While the series is still a few years away, McCallum says there’s no risk in the scripts dating.

“They’re timeless,” he continued. “They take place between Episode III and Episode IV. That 20 year period when Luke is growing up. It’s not about Luke, but it’s about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over].”

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.
