There's been some talk over the years about a live-action "Star Wars" TV show, but nothing ever got off the ground. Well, now that Disney controls Lucasfilm . . . the project may finally get rolling at ABC, which is also owned by Disney.
A suit at ABC says, quote, "We'd love to do something . . . [but] we're not sure what yet . . . we're going to look at [it], and see what's right. We weren't able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed.
"It's definitely going to be part of the conversation."
One of the main obstacles before now was COST. Some estimates projected the budget for a live-action "Star Wars" show to be more than $5 million PER EPISODE.
But since Disney owns ABC and "Star Wars", some of the costs, like licensing, would be eliminated . . . and they'd be able to keep basically ALL the profits on stuff like DVDs and merchandise in-house.
