Disney and Lucasfilm in Talks for Another Star Wars Animated Series
Are we about to see another Star Wars animated series come to television? According to Disney/ABC co-chairman Ben Sherwood, talks are currently ongoing to make another Star Wars animated show.
Years ago, George Lucas tried to make a live-action Star Wars TV series called Star Wars: Underworld, but due to budget constraints, the project never came to fruition. We got our hopes up when there were rumblings that ABC was in talks with Lucasfilm for another Star Wars TV show, but it looks like live-action is probably still a no-go with the network:
Considering the astronomical cost of a live-action Star Wars series, it's probably too much to hope for that this will happen. But luckily, there are apparently more concrete plans for another animated series.
We will probably always be curious about Star Wars: Underworld, and a live-action series in general, but an animated series is still great news. If it's as great as Clone Wars and the second season of Rebels, we'll be very, very excited.
