Jabba In The Live Action Series?

Posted By Mike on August 19, 2008

Friend of TFN, "Stooge", receives the Creative Screenwriting Magazine newsletter via e-mail and was happy to see an interview with a few writers of The Clone Wars in the latest issue. (Henry Gilroy, Steve Melching, and Scott Murphy) What was most interesting was Henry Gilroy's comments regarding Jabba the Hutt and his possible inclusion in the future live-action series. See the excerpt below:



Were there any initial mandates from George about what territory they wanted covered, or things they wanted you to avoid?

Gilroy: No, most of the time George was really receptive to ideas. The entire movie plot of Jabba the Hutt's son being kidnapped, initially I had pitched a story…[George] had said, "Try to stay away from Jabba the Hutt, because I want to use Jabba in the live-action series." I wrote this story about the Hutt kidnapping, and then at the next meeting he said, "Why didn't you put Jabba in it?" "You told us not to put Jabba in it!" "Oh, you gotta put Jabba in it!" George really is open to all sorts of stuff.



Kind of fits in with the whole criminal underworld themes rumored to be included in the series.
