May the Force be with you ABC
The network president of ABC, Channing Dungey, recently revealed at the TCA (Television Critics Association) upfronts that ABC is in talks with Disney to make a live-action Star Wars series.
According to Screenrant, nothing is confirmed yet, but Dungey did say that “As a fan I would absolutely love to say yes. We have had conversations with [Lucasfilm] and we will continue to have conversations with them. I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand onto our programming.”
Dungrey also compared working with Lucasfilm to Marvel when he noted that “It’s all a little bit hush-hush. That company exists under a big shroud of secrecy. If you feel Marvel is secretive, Lucas takes it to a whole other level. [Talks] are ongoing. We don’t really have an official timeline yet.”
Considering how well received Marvels live-action Netflix series have been, the idea of Star Wars getting similar treatment sounds awesome, especially when you consider the potential the universe has for storytelling.
