Ideas For The T.V. Series

Author

I know a few ideas are floating around about ideas for what the proposed TV series George is looking into making now may cover and i would like to start a dedicated thread for this topic.
I think he may go back to the Yoda early years thing, but from a fans point of view i'd love him to cover storys from all the bounty hunters (Dengar,Zukass,4-Lom,Bossk,IG88,Boba Fett,and even Mara Jade, and Jango).
There's a back story where the inventor of IG88 built 9 Robots and was killed upon activation of the droids, then for some reason were hell bent on killing Boba Fett (i never read the comics as to why if it was covered in there). Bossk had limbs that would instantly re-grow if severed. Dengar was brain damaged and unable to feel pain.
It could also add credibility to Jango's high reputation that is apparently evident yet unfounded in Attack Of The Clones.

i think should they should make a cg series following luke, han, and leia in between the ot. they could get mark hamill and tony daniels. it would be neat as ive always loved the marvel comics and the comic strip that took place during that period

Yeah although for some reason cant imagine Harrison signing up for this - to me he doesnt hold that fondness for Star Wars like Anthoney Daniels or Mark Hamill does. To me Harrison Ford IS Star Wars. Although i could be wrong

Perfect solution: Shadows of the Empire mini-series.

i wouldnt mind someone playing han if it meant we got a series like this. i wouldnt mind a shadows mini series, but id like something more original, but ill take what i can get. wouldnt mind a splinter of the minds eye series, the original sequel to star wars

Too bad Sean Patrick Flanery has aged out of the role. 'Twould have been funny to see him as young IJ and young Han.

I'm sure Perry King would be willing and much more affordable than Harrison these days.

I told you all didn't I, that Lucas said that there is a possibility of a KOTOR-era series after this one is completed?

wasnt kotor based off the dark horse 'tales of the jedi' series? if it was i hope its the next series. they really got the old, old republic down in that series. i sorta thought in the back of my mind thats how the prequels wouldve been like

i think lucas is talentewd he lowered his standards for the pt though, why i dont know besides what excuses hes put out there

I wish that those rumors about Kevin Smith and/or Quentin Tarantino working on parts of it were true. That would bring about some interesting episodes, IMHO.

If it must happen, the TV show should be a band of brothers style show about a new bunch of trainee Jedis under the tutelage of Luke Skywalker, played by Mark Hamill, post ROTJ. But that is, of course, wishful thinking, and we will get some post Episode 3 but pre a new hope CGI crap.

War does not make one great.

All that has been confirmed about the style of the show is that it will be in a similar style to The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles.

Urm, how much of a story is left? All jedi are in hiding and Luke is just a farm boy. I guess there is a big story to tell about how the empire takes control of the universe.

The hunting down of the surviving jedi by Boba Fett and the growing of Anakuin more into Vader.

Except I thought Lucas said he WOULDN'T be including any movie characters as major players in the show. They might show up as a cameo here and there, but otherwise not.

My god that would be great. It would be like "orgasm on ice: the musical." Dude, totally. That would rock so hard.
And since George Lucas doesn't really want to do anything with the TV show (i.e., direct, be on set) other than hack out some sort of loose plot for the directers to follow, the show could be gold. Better than the PT (which really wouldn't be all that hard to do given some tallent.)

Wow... dammit! That is what I want to watch. That is what the public needs. We need something like that to wash the bad taste out of our mouths that the PT left behind.
We don't need anymore of the "Boba Fett Show and his band of merry bounties" thank you very much. God in heaven....

The adventures of Han and Lando or a series about the Eradication of the rest of the Jedi in far galaxies both set between ep 3 and 4. The Han and Lando would leave plenty of room for back stories of bounty hunters, the wookie race and some of the wretched hive found at Mos Eisleys spaceport. Since Han and Lando are good with the ladies it will give a chance for some hot chicks. Han and Lando both have a great back story according to Lucas.

I have a bad feeling about this, though. I'm afraid that when it airs I might be in for a HUGE letdown like you guys were.

Any word on when we are supposed to be seeing this then. Is it in production?
