Star Wars Underworld Test Footage (Abandoned Lucas TV Series)
« on: February 01, 2020, 09:07:16 AM »
Footage has been released of the Star Wars TV series that never came out.

I remember when this was announced way back and it sounded great. Set on Coruscant between ep's 3 & 4. Chris Chibnall (don't fucking start) and Matthew Graham of Life On Mars were among the writers on it.

Lots of info on it here https://starwars.fandom.com/wiki/Star_Wars:_Underworld

Budget seemed to be a big factor in it not getting made.

In The Writer’s Tale Russell T Davies mentioned being invited to meet with George Lucas too. He didn’t seem bothered though and was too busy with Who anyway.

Would have loved to see this. Imagine a TV series looking like that in 2010! Looks like a fun mix of the prequels and originals aesthetically.

Forgot RTD had said that. Yeah it does look good. There's a real grimey-ness about it.

I think they should have called the series Underworld Test Footage.  It’s a brilliant name.

Wasn't Underworld the Doctor Who story that was airing when Star Wars was released?
