George Lucas "Waiting" to Shoot Star Wars Series
George Lucas thinks that current technology doesn’t have the Force to start developing a new Star Wars television show.
Lucas, who says he has over 50 hours (two seasons’ worth) of a live-action TV series, told cable network G4TV that he is waiting for a technological breakthrough before shooting is feasible, The New York Post recently reported.
The Star Wars creator said he is awaiting “a different type of technology we can use so it’s economically feasible to shoot the shows.”
Explaining that TV has to be produced at a tenth of the cost of movies, Lucas said the ability to make a credible show at that cost doesn’t exist yet. The development is “a very difficult process,” he said.
The series, which is set to take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, has been put on hold.
