It's probably no surprise to anyone that George Lucas was trying to put together a live action television show for Star Wars prior to the sale of Lucasfilm to Disney.

What you may not know is that he had one of television's great content makers working on it, Ronald D Moore.

He first made his name on Star Trek: Next Generation and then made himself a piece of history with his revised Battlestar Galactica series.

He recently spoke publicly on his involvement:

"I did, for a bit of time, work on what was going to be a Star Wars live-action series. We’d go gather at Skywalker Ranch periodically, every couple of months, and break stories and write scripts for this proposed series that George was interested in. And George was in the ring with us every day. And it was a fascinating, amazing experience.

There was George Lucas and we’d be arguing stories and there was a point where I found myself in an intense argument with George about what Darth Vader would or would not do, and part of my brain kind of went, ‘What the hell are you doing? Are you really going to argue with George Lucas about what Darth Vader would do?"

How cool would it have been to have some Star Wars scripts from Moore on the screen? Let's hope a live action Star Wars show eventually does happen. It could be an amazing thing if done right. Let's at it Disney!


Update, it looks like this concept is happening. First up, The Mandalorian is being directed by Jon Favreau and Cassian Andors is to have his own show! We wonder if anything Moore worked on made it through?
