George Lucas Talks SW Live-Action Series

Posted By Eric on May 24, 2011

The Maker himself, George Lucas, appeared on G4's Attack of the Show on Monday and Tuesday nights to discuss three major contemporary Star Wars topics.

G4's Kevin Pereira interviewed Lucas and Disney Imagineer Tom Fitzgerald about Star Wars in 3D, Star Tours: The Adventures Continue, and yes, briefly, the upcoming live-action series. Lucas and Fitzgerald described the unique nature of the new Disney ride and its evolution over the years. Lucas also discussed the challenges of converting the Star Wars film series to 3D and the fact that everyone involved is being very careful to do it right.

However, the hottest segment of the AOTS interview by far was the part where Lucas discussed the live-action TV show. Here are some of the things that he said about the eagerly-awaited series.
  • "We have 50 hours and we're just waiting to figure out a different way of making movies, a different technology we can use ... to make it feasible to shoot the show."
  • "[W]hen we do figure this problem out it will dramatically affect a lot of movies."
  • "Right now it looks like the Star Wars features."
Last we heard, the series was still in the script stage, so this is a significant jump forward in the creative process. With Celebration VI hopefully just a year away, is there a chance that we'll have new live-action Star Wars footage waiting for us in [insert CVI city here]? Here's hoping!

UPDATE: io9 spoke to Lucasfilm PR and determined that "Lucas was only talking about 50 hours' worth of scripts that had been written. Nothing has been filmed yet." The original story continues below.

You can check out both interviews below, courtesy of G4 TV.
