The Future Of Star Wars: Possible Plots For Episode VII | The Long-Awaited TV Series
The Long-Awaited TV Series

Background
Almost ever since Revenge Of The Sith, Lucasfilm has been working on a live action Star Wars TV show that would be set between Sith and A New Hope, and would focus on the more peripheral characters of the franchise – yes, fanboys, characters like Boba Fett – and the underworld of the Star Wars universe, particularly Coruscant. It was intended to be “complex, dark and adult”, but otherwise to fit the tone of the movies.

How It Might Work
The series was stalled by budgetary concerns, but perhaps the concept could be retooled for feature film use. With planned hour-long episodes and arcs running throughout, and with Game Of Thrones style character development, it might be amenable to trilogy-ification. Of course, since it’s all under wraps it’s hard to say how easy that would be, but it’s an option. We would expect Disney to be looking hard at the possibility of a Star Wars TV show in any case, however, just as they have with S.H.I.E.L.D. so this might yet see the light of day in its original form.
