The live-action show? It’s on hold

This is actually old news, but it’s something that didn’t really get any headlines back when it broke – though it has been trickling down through fandom. (Yes, I’m at as much fault as anyone here.) Turns out, the biggest news we’ve had so far on the live-action series was actually… In May. And it’s not good. Here’s what George said at the Q&A at The Empire Strikes Back 30th Anniversary Screening, courtesy of Rebelscum:

Answer: The live action TV show is kind of on hold because we have scripts, but we don’t know how to do ‘em. Because, they literally are Star Wars, only we’re going to have to try to do them…[at] tenth the cost. And, it’s a huge challenge…lot bigger than what we thought it was gonna be.

Thanks to Techland for digging this up.

    I don’t understand why they can’t just clone every character. Seems to work for other aspects of the GFFA.

    And as for costuming costs, just strip all of the characters’ garments down to midriffs, cleavage, skin-tight pants, and biceps. Again, keeping with many other familiar characters in the movies/books/comics/games/etc.

    If doing the show live-action is prohibitively expensive, seems to me there’s an obvious solution: Keep the scripts you’ve got now, but bite the bullet and just make it another CGI (or otherwise animated) series.
