New 'Star Wars' Show Like 'The Godfather,' Still Years Away

Star WarsGeorge Lucas may have hours -- seasons even -- of scripts written for his long-discussed 'Star Wars' TV show, but we know we'll have to wait. How long? Producer Rick McCallum told the Czech Position the wait could be for years.

"We have 50 hours of third-draft scripts, but the problem we have is there is a lot of digital animation; we don't have the technology yet to be able to do them at a price that is safe for television.

"Since we would be financing them, it would be suicide for us to do this [now]. So we are going to wait three or four years," McCallum said, echoing statements made by Lucas.

McCallum said the series takes place during Luke Skywalker's teen years, but don't expect to see the young character pop up in the crime drama McCallum and Lucas are reportedly envisioning.

"Basically, it is like 'The Godfather'; it's the Empire slowly building up its power base around the galaxy, what happens in Coruscant, which is the major capital, and it's [about] a group of underground bosses who live there and control drugs, prostitution," McCallum said.

Sounds like a pretty far departure to the fantastical film series.
