As much as I love Star Wars, when George Lucas announced a planned live-action television show I was wary. They've been talking about a show like that since the original trilogy and, as a kid, I thought there couldn't be anything better. Then, Lucas released the new trilogy and I realized its possible to ruin a good thing.

In 2007, Lucas announced Lucas Arts is developing a show set in the universe between the trilogies. At a special screening, Lucas told why its been years since the announcement and there's still no series.

"The live action TV show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don't know how to do 'em," related Lucas. "Because, they literally are Star Wars, only we're going to have to try to do them [at] a tenth [of] the cost. And, it's a huge challenge... [it's a] lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be."

If they can pull this off, it could be epic. If they have to cut corners, it could be Knight Rider (2008)
