Eventually the Star Wars live action series will be a real thing fans can watch and debate over. We’ve known it’s coming for a long time, and even though we get occasional news about it, it’s still not happening anytime soon. Lucasfilm has over 50 hours of episodes written, but they want to do it right. Right in this case means quality special effects, and the technology isn’t at a point yet that makes it affordable.
In other words, the TV series would be too expensive—but that doesn’t mean they’re giving up.
IGN recently talked to producer Rick McCallum about Red Tails and managed to sneak in some talk about the series. McCallum referred to it with a working title: Star Wars: Underworld. He confirmed they are waiting for the times to catch up, and Lucas speculates it will about 3-4 years.
Check out the interview with McCallum after the break.
