    I was thinking about this,and I think it could work depending on how Episode 3 ends. If EP3 ends with the disolve of the Jedi Council and the begining of Vader hunting them down, they could have a series based on a small group of Jedi and their travles through the SW galaxy. maybe like one Jedi master, a Jedi Knight, and a couple Padawans. It wouldn't have to be linked to the SW cannon either. The only thing is that it would end up where they are a traveling band of do-gooders that help whoever they run across. But you could keep the continuing story line of them having to hide form the Empire. Then when you get ready to end the series have ol' Vader show up and finish them off.

    Almost like the A-Team of outer space. Maybe they can take a wrecked shuttle and convert it into a battle ready killing machine.

    This is exactly the sort of thing I'm worried about. One week they're helping a bunch of mositure farmers form a truce against a tribe of sandpeople (w/ Jane Seymour as the settler woman), the next week they're talking some diplomat's son out of participating in a dangerous race through an asteroid belt in order to get his parents attention, the next week they're escorting a shipment of medical supplies past a group of pirates! Look out for that new derivative bounty hunter! And what's this? Qui-Gon Jinn had a brother that hadn't been mentioned before, and he's a Jedi, too? Wow! Look, Darth Maul was cloned and he's back and ready for revenge, and this time it's personal!

    Don't forget to watch those episodes in December where our young Padawan wishes he'd never been born, and gets to see what things would have been like if he hadn't. Don't forget to tune in for special episodes where we discover that our brassy Jedi pilot has been a death stick addict for years, or that our Quarren general is secretly in love with the Mon Calamari communications officer, despite the fact that they're species are constantly at war back home.

    During sweeps week expect cameos from everyone hitting the convention circuit, only in different roles! Peter Mayhew is back--as a wookiee smuggler who isn't Chewbacca! This week, Anthony Daniels guest stars as a scientist who designs and builds protocol droids, what an ironic and cool casting decision!

    Okay, I'm done.

    Doing the series about a Padawan and his/her Master as the padawan goes through training might work, or doing the story about the last padawan after his/her master is killed might be cool too, as a Jedi Ronin kind of thing.

    All I can say is that if the extermination of the jedi happens off screen, between Eps 3 and 4, I will feel ripped off, much like the Clone Wars occuring between Eps 2 and 3.

    Re: Live action series in the works?

    What about if it was like to old series Kung Fu- One young jedi, traveling through the galaxy, trying to find his way and purpose after the clone wars.

    If you had flashbackss, make the master be Carridene- he was great in Kill Bill.

    Ahhh, young grasshopper...er padawan

    Re: Live action series in the works?

    Er, I have a bad feeling about this. I don't watch sci-fi or action shows on TV, mainly because of the shoddy feeling about them. They just wouldn't be the same as the films. It could be sometimes okay, if done correctly, in a similar fashion to the last episode of the Clone Wars cartoon, with a few Jedi fighting and stuff. If it works out, the series will probably be something like "Young Han Solo" or "The Early Adventures of Luke Skywalker" or something. I love the Clone Wars cartoon, and I think it would be better if they did another cartoon (longer and now in a different timeframe). I can see it happening because of the overall reaction to the series (except for Pendo's). That way, the special effects wouldn't like crappy - they'd be cartoons with everything else.

    Re: Live action series in the works?

    I'm with you JJ. Another cartoon would be preferable, especially since the Clone Wars got so much right that the PT films didn't. I've worked in hour long action tv series before and as I stated in an earlier post, the reason most of them are so bad isn't from a lack of ambition, it's from a lack of time. You have one week to film an entire episode--stunts and FX included. An action sequence conceived with the brilliance of pre-U.S. Jackie Chan movies, will be reduced to a couple of uninspired punches thrown by the time it is shot.

    This is why so many of these series are boring and uninteresting. Yet another idea I think could work would be to follow one character (and peripheral characters) as he/she enlists with the Empire, serves as a stormtrooper, discovers that the Empire isn't all it can be, and decides to defect to the Rebellion. It has an arc that defines and develops the character, doesn't always require blasters to be fired while still having drama, and doesn't fall into that episodic problem of the week catastrophe that most SF series fall prey to.

    Re: Live action series in the works?

    I'd like to see both a live action and an animated series.
    Gendy Tartakofsky (sp?) has stated that his dream Star Wars 'toon would be a Han and Chewie series, which would rock hardcore I'm sure.
    I think Lucasfilm would take an active role in a live action series and not let people suck it up like so many other shows. Look how hesitant they seemed with Clone Wars. They could've done it as a 30 minute show, but chose to make it a much smaller event, which worked or didn't work, depending on your point of view.

    Re: Live action series in the works?

    Just revive a cancelled tv series and give it a SW flavor. I'm not the only one who wants to see "Walker, Jedi Master." Chuck Norris already has the Jedi Master beard.

    If anything, though, I'd like to see more cartoons. The animated story of Han and Chewbacca meeting and what Lando was doing before he met Han. The Lando trilogy does not count, because those books sucked. Not sure how a series like that could work out, though.

    The live action idea does not sit well with me. I suppose I am afraid it would not feel like Star Wars. If it does occur, though, I will definitely see what it is about before final judgement.
