McCallum Talks Live-Action Series Again

Posted By Eric on January 11, 2012

Two days ago, Rick McCallum's live-action series conversation with IGN made waves in the Star Wars fan community. Now we've got some more information to share with you. Entertainment Weekly's Christian Blauvelt caught up with McCallum at last night's Red Tails premiere after-party, and they continued the conversation about Star Wars: Underworld. After McCallum reiterated that this was strictly a working title, he promised that the series would feature "a lot of smugglers, gangsters, bounty hunters, and a few Wall Street-type power brokers."

While there are several other interesting tidbits in the EW article, here's one that caught my attention:

A number of behind-the-scenes moves over the past few years have fueled speculation: George Lucas himself ordered that popular Jedi rogue Quinlan Vos survive the Star Wars: Republic comics series; A.C. Crispin?s proposed young Princess Leia novel series was canceled, as was a Boba Fett novel to be penned by Mandalorian obsessive Karen Traviss. Could this mean that Vos, Leia, and Fett could be involved in a TV series?

Obviously, McCallum isn?t saying. But the fact that over 50 scripts have been penned ?by writers hailing from Europe, Australia, and North America,? according to McCallum, suggests that the show could be envisioned as an anthology series, sort of like a television analogue to the Tales of the Mos Eisley Cantina short-story project in the ?90s, with many already-established aspects of the Expanded Universe included.

Now that sounds fantastic! McCallum talks about the series' expected launch timeframe, the status of Seth Green's animated series, and more at EW.com. Check it out!
