Star Wars on TV

Filed under: culture, movies — ted @ 3:51 pm

This afternoon, BBC news broke a story concerning the intentions of George Lucas and producer Rick McCallum to create a a “TV spin-off series” of the Star Wars movies. Apparently, the time frame will be between Episodes III and IV, and will “cover the 20 years in the life of Luke Skywalker growing up that remains a mystery to most film-goers.”

I have, how to say, mixed feelings about this. Obviously, more Star Wars is a good thing, right? Not necessarily, especially if it’s produced for TV and will “run to at least 100 episodes.” What is Lucas thinking? is a question we should probably stop asking by now, especially when he sees fit to wear hats like this:

We can, I guess, hold out hope that it might be good, or at least better than The Phantom Menace. But without special effects that took at least one full year to create, how much worse would TPM have been? Shudder…
