Scum and Villainy at Yahoo debuted an interesting rumor this weekend: That Star Wars properties will, like their siblings at Marvel, head to Netflix. “The idea being tossed around right now is a series focusing on Cad Bane from The Clone Wars,” their source says. “But this is very early talks.”
“It’s just the one series but a number of other shows focusing on different characters is a very big possibility.”
Jason at Making Star Wars has heard this as well, but that it’s “so early it wasn’t even really notable at this stage.” And he heard it was live action, not animated, but even his source was skeptical that it’ll go anywhere.
Even if this is just the fruit of some brainstorming at Lucasfilm, at least The Clone Wars fans can take some solace that the show isn’t being swept under a rug somewhere. If Bane is in the running, I’m sure some of the show’s other breakout characters will have a chance at the spotlight as well.
