Ronald D. Moore is no stranger to science-fiction and fantasy television. But in a series of planning conferences in northern California several years ago, Moore was not the most knowledgeable guy in the room. That's because he was at Skywalker Ranch, helping to develop the Star Wars live-action TV series with George Lucas.
In a recent interview on Last Call With Carson Daily, where he was promoting two current series for which serves as executive producer, Moore discussed the process of working with Lucas, including one argument that felt surreal to him. Here's part of what he said:
“I did, for a bit of time, work on what was going to be a Star Wars live-action series. We’d go gather at Skywalker Ranch periodically, every couple of months, and break stories and write scripts for this proposed series that George was interested in. And George was in the ring with us every day. And it was a fascinating, amazing experience. There was George Lucas and we’d be arguing stories and there was a point where I found myself in an intense argument with George about what Darth Vader would or would not do, and part of my brain kind of went, 'What the hell are you doing? Are you really going to argue with George Lucas about what Darth Vader would do?'"You can watch the full interview below.
