'live' action tv series years away?
 
so, GL has said it is still a few years away.
2 years ago, he said it would be this or next year(08)
why the wait? he has the money(what used to be our money), his own film corporation, tons of expanded universe to draw upon, and us, ready to give him more of our money. Getting another animated series is like getting lego, when i want kotor III.
How do you all feel about it?

More time for development = less chance of rushing into stupid decisions and ****ing things up *cough*TSL*cough*

You seem to forget TSLRP...

But as long as the series is great. I'll watch it.

Well in 08 the Clone Wars series is coming out. I think its good that LucasArts is working on one project at a time.

I don't understand why people say that if they rush this it will be like TSL. TV and gaming, however many similarities are too completely different things. He has several billion dollars behind him, why are people scared?

No problem...

Kirstin Kreuk will be even hotter in a few years from now :naughty:

But seriously...planning a TV show like this will take some time. Making episodes at this moment costs alot of money. Maybe even too much. I think it's better this way :)

Well, for me, it seems like with every passing year, the release date is farer and farer...

I just hope they use their extra time well.

logan essex 03-18-2007 01:33 PM

well, rushing and doing are 2 different things.
As well, Lucasarts is a huge company, animation and live series are 2 different things, more than not, handled by different departments anyway.

As far as cost, it's a clean investment. It's money in the bank. You make it, they (us) will come.
I've been Jedi for 30 yrs., waiting and waiting for 'the dark times, the empire'. Vader in his prime, Solo in his youth, the hunt of the Jedi. Also, in the radio series from the 70's, I remember then talking about the Sith, outside the republic, deep on the edge of the galaxy. Perhaps something about Vader having gone out there for a time.(it was a long time ago, my hearing this mind you). then, with kotor, Revan and the Exile are headed out that way also. So, still waiting for this story to be told. I hope we get some of this great mystery solved before i die, or civilization crumbles, or the Empire finishes taking over the world and bans Star Wars.

I don't think its that they can't work on both at the same time, but they don't want to release them at the same time. If they do one thing every year it makes star wars popular for that much longer.

He had several billion dollars behind him for TPM and AOTC as well...And that produced Jar Jar and the stupidest romance ever seen in a movie...

I agree that TSL development cycle has no bearing or comparison to how Star Wars on tv will turn out. While I agree that TSL was indeed hurt greatly by a rushed development cycle enforced by LA on Obsidian, this has no relevance to the tv shows, because Lucas himself is at the top of those, and he doesn't have to care one whit whether anyone thinks he's doing things too slowly or not. He can do whatever he pleases, and nobody can tell him otherwise. If he wants to spend five years developing those shows, then he will. So that's not the concern.

No, the concern is that what Lucas wants to do may not be so interesting. While lots of people like ROTS to at least some degree, fears of the ghosts TPM and JarJar rearing their ugly heads are indeed present. Lucas can also completely turn Star Wars into a cartoonish (and by that I don't mean merely animated) version of itself, or a glorified "muppet show" of silly "fun" characters (like JarJar), if that is what he wants to do. And nobody can tell him otherwise, not even the fans. I think that's what many of us are concerned about.

Not for me. Right now I'm more stoked for the animated show...
