Star Wars Ain’t No Cheap Whore

George Lucas himself has revealed that his live-action TV series set in the “Star Wars” universe has essentially ground to a halt.

According to CBM, the filmmaker revealed at a recent screening that “the live action TV show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don’t know how to do them.”

Despite various sci-fi franchises from “Star Wars” to “Battlestar Galactica” doing small screen sci-fi on a budget, the economics of doing a TV series seem to be the big sticking point for Lucas.

“They literally are Star Wars, only we’re going to have to try to do them at a tenth the cost. And it’s a huge challenge, a lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be” he adds.
