Upcoming SW Live-Action TV Show Discussion!

<< < (28/29) > >>

Jesse James:
Ya never know, but I sort of think the same thing.  I question if a Marvel TV show will work and I think if it doesn't Star Wars won't be as high a priority.  Nerds are cool and all, but I'm not sure they can carry these major TV projects.

Dave:
With all the SW Anthology movie talk going on, and seeing that Disney is putting Marvel stuff on Netflix (Daredevil) and TV (Agents of SHIELD) - has there been any more talk or speculation about a Star Wars live action serial?

I know its been discussed here in the past, but man would I love to see some story lines developed this way.  I think it would be super cool to do mini-series via Netflix.  Maybe 10-16 show story arcs.  Rogue Squadron.  Bounty hunters.  Smugglers.

They must have talked about it at Disney with what they're doing with Marvel.  I hope its just a matter of time until we get the same treatment with Star Wars.

Funny that you should mention that, Dave.  Because rumors are circulating that Disney/LFL may be pursuing just such a deal with Netflix.  And there may be as many as three different series developed for TV.  I'd definitely be interested to see where this goes.

So far Daredevil has been pretty successful for Netflix/Marvel.  Jessica Jones is set to debut later this year, and the Luke Cage series comes out in 2016.  I hear there may be some issues with the Iron Fist show, but that's it's own thing.  It's interesting to see Disney potentially moving forward so decisively here with possible Star Wars TV series for a streaming service like Netflix.

As for what sort of content to take on?  The whole Star Wars Underworld concept is totally worth exploring.  I'd also be up for seeing some PT era Jedi stories, where they truly were peace keepers.  And a show that focuses on some small faction of the Rebellion during the OT era might be pretty cool, too.

Darby:
I'll have to type me up a Star Wars spec script...

Dave:
Read the article on the link posted by Nicklab.  Interesting to see they might be trying to re-use sets from the movies.

It would be cool to get little mini-series of background stories or further adventures around some of the key characters - e.g Flynn, Rey, Poe, Kylo Ren, etc.
