According to /film it looks like the Star Wars live action film is on hold. Depending on how you feel about this, it could be really good or really bad. I’m leaning toward bad, since I’ve been teased with this fucking thing for at least five years now. Even if it sucks, I just want to see the damned thing already.
Here’s why the show is on a bit of a hold from George Lucas:
The live action TV show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don’t know how to do them. They literally are Star Wars, only we’re going to have to try to do them at a tenth the cost. And it’s a huge challenge, a lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be.
Wait… a show the size and scope and backing of people who just love expensive special effects is going to be really expensive? No way! Seriously, they didn’t see this as a problem? There’s got to be a way here, fellas. If they can make the revival of Battlestar Galactica look kick ass, they can make a Star Wars show with the reduced cost of all that in-house FX. But what do I know? I’m only the coolest geek on the planet, not the smartest.
And in case you’re wondering, I have zero interest in the announced Star Wars animated comedy series. Maybe if I saw it and didn’t hate it I might like it, but seriously why keep over saturating the market with garbage?
