The long-rumored Star Wars live action TV show (see “No Skywalkers in Star Wars TV Show”) has begun casting, according to MTV Movies Blog. Rose Byrne, doing publicity for Knowing, “let slip” that she has friends who are auditioning for the series.

The show will be set between Episode III and Episode IV, and focus on minor characters. Lucas plans to shoot a full year’s worth of episodes before selling the series to a network.

Well at least with a full season of episodes made prior to airing, we won't get any bullshit mid-season finales and having to wait 6+ months for new episodes like alot of series have been doing lately.

well only shit thing is any Jedi that survived didnt last too long according to the books. some gave up being a jedi, as vader could track them down otherwise

and the ones that didnt were hunted and killed by vader

i think KOTOR time would have been good, well any historical time,

when there were sith andjedi in large numbers that way we get lightsaber action frequently

I just hope that when it says minor characters, it doesn't mean space drama on a star destroyer. :P There has to be some decent jedi/sith action in it or nobody will give two shits for it. :nod:

A clone wars live action series could have been action packed and easy to write.

What if the series is nothing but a smallville-ish rip. There will be some unknown kid in a small village slowly realizing he is different from others and he has powers that over multiple seaons start to evolve into new abilities... little does he know he is a talented force user. Eventually when the series' ratings start to decline, he'll start to turn evil and the local highschool football team will join forces with a small anti-empire movement on the planet to kill him before the empire recruits him for evil purposes.

:barf:

LMAO!!! I haven't seen smallville since hat General Zod thing with Lex.

What minor characters would bring any interest to the series at that time? Maybe Anikin's appretentice from the Clone Wars?

anakin didnt have an apprentice, that was made up for the cartoon so he can be saved by a child, to make the Kids Rule attitude,

the dumbing down of starwars is practically insulting

read: Dark Lord: Rise of Darth Vader

starts after being made in vader, and hunts down some jedi

now what i want to know is how did anakin go from having his ass handing to him by obie-one to being able to kill a guy server solar systems away over a TV ;p

read that they are planning on running 4 series at once,

start with one series and split into 4,

from wikipedia:

The production will focus on minor characters from the Star Wars galaxy, rather than the main characters from the films. Originally, 100 one hour-long episodes were proposed, but at Celebration Europe in July 2007, producer Rick McCallum explained that it may run up to 400 episodes, and "it’s something that can go on for years and years. One of the ideas is that we’ll have multiple series going on in about two or three years' time."[4] This supports a description given by Lucas as "one show that will split into four shows, focusing on different characters."[5]

Lucas had stated that the series will air on HBO, describing it as "Deadwood meets The Sopranos in space."[6]

I wouldn't count on that especially if Sci Fi or Sy Fy or bullshit whatever they call themselves gets the show. :nah:

Characters

Lucas stated at Celebration III that cameos by main characters are not totally out of the question. A teaser image shown at Toy Fair 2007 features a close-up of Boba Fett's helmet.[citation needed]

Lucas himself instructed the writers of the Star Wars: Republic comic book series not to kill off the Quinlan Vos character. Lucas had originally written a scene for Revenge of the Sith involving Vos, but ultimately, he only got a mention in the film.[15] It has been speculated that Vos will be included in the series due to Lucas' requests and changes made.[citation needed]

Lucas has stated that the series will not feature Darth Vader, Palpatine, or any Jedi characters, stating that "The Emperor and Darth Vader are heard about — people talk about them — but you never see them because it doesn't take place where they actually are. There are storm troopers and all that, but there are no Jedis [sic]."[16]

No Jedi's ...............................

bet they will be force users after a viewership strongly declines

I think he must mean current Jedi users. As in, no one we've seen before. Personally, I'd love to see [ame=http://www.atom.com/funny_videos/forced_alliance/]Forced Alliance | Star Wars Fan Movie Champions|Spoofs | Atom[/ame] actually made into a series.

Edit: ok, I don't want that actually embedded. *grumble*


Yesterday was the deadline for all complaints!

i think this series is a poor mistake the more i read on it.

the dark age between ep 3 and 4 is just vader hunting and killing jedi, and in a few years he recruits star killer,

and star killer never saw a jedi untill TFU.

any force users shouldnt be anything special or vader would find them.

they should go KOTOR before it is to late

I think if he works on making the story good instead of looking for marketing options and catering to the PC crowd, it would be well worth it. But unfortunatly, the Star Wars franchise is one that spends more time on being popular vs. being good or true to the story, so I'm rather ambivilant about the whole thing.

This is so stupid. KOTOR and Outcast would make excellent TV series, and you are gonna make a show without all the best elements of Starwars?

      I loved this cartoon when i was a kid. The animation looks good, the music is great, the voice actors are a good match. I'll watch this.

      I watched the first 3 episodes of this tonight and I'm loving it so far. Unlike the movie where everyone is stuck in a grocery store, the bulk of the cast is trapped in a mall, while others are in a church or on the road trying to avoid getting killed. Spike has done a good job with this. Depending on how they treat this series it could be their own Walking Dead kind of show. No zombies needed here with the amount of monsters ready to kill everyone.

      It looks good to me, except for Iron Fist. Even in this trailer he has to say "I'm Iron Fist". I hope the guy that wrote Iron Fist isn't part of this production, because if he is, I'll expect to hear Iron Fist say his own name again 100 more times in the show.

      This came out on netflix last week and I finished it up about a week ago. Its the fourth series in the Marvel/Netflix deal leading up to the fifth series called "Defenders" that will have Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage and Iron Fist in it. Those first three series were highly enjoyable and well made. I don't think I made a topic for each one but perhaps I will. The special effects, characters, plot and abilities of the heroes and villains in each of those series were well thought out and executed.. But then we have Iron Fist. Honestly this show was a huge let down. From what I remember in the comics and cartoons, Iron Fist was a smart ass guy with a sense of humor.. and is supposed to be the best fung fu master on the planet worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. In this series Danny Rand aka Iron Fist is a complete mess. He was raised by monks in a monastery for 15 years and instead of becoming an amazing kung fu master in full control of his body and mind he is a psychological mess with constant PTSD issues. wtf. The actor also appears to have done all his own stunt work which includes yellow belt kung fu lessons and no full length leg extensions on kicks. wtf.
      I was expecting some Jackie Chan or Bruce Lee action considering they are/were kung fu legends in my mind. Instead of amazing fight choreography like I'd see in either of their movies, we get the equivilant of a guy looking homeless half the movie getting into random fights with minimal kicking. Its not just the fights that are bad, but the acting and characters are worse. They repeat everything. I heard "I"m the Iron Fist" at least 5 times per episode.. I'm not kidding. Every character counterdicts themselves. One episode they'll talk about honor, the next they're doing illegal activities. One minute Danny Rand wants to get control of his father's company, the next he completely abandons it. One episode a character is emotionally torn about Danny, the next episode they betray him.. again.. and again, like a game of tennis. I don't know who was in charge of this show but it was horrible. The worst part of the entire series was the emphasis on the multi million dollar corporation he somehow still had legal rights to after being declared dead over 15 years ago. At least half the series was focused on board rooms and the fate the company that overall had no significant impact on the actual series. Imagine a Batman movie where half the movie was Bruce Wayne and, alot of screen time on his associates, making business decisions about Wayne Enterprises. Who needs action and kung fu in an action based kung fu series when we can instead sit here and watch people squabble about the price of the drugs they're manufacturing and whose in control of the company. Ehhhhh. Daredevil had a bit too much courtroom drama with the lawyer aspect of it, but in the end it kind of worked since it was a build of Punisher having his own series. In Iron Fist, I suppose this boardroom crap and the lack of a single major enemy throughout the series for Iron Fist to fight against was more of a build up to Defenders than a standalone series.

      Sounds like a good title to me. The movie is going to pick up right where the last movie ended.
