McCallum Talks Live-Actions Series
In the following video, McCallum reveals the series' working title, Star Wars: Underworld, and talks about the many challenges faced in getting the series on the air. Mostly a recap and mostly business-related, but there are some interesting new nuggets within. For instance, the episodes have a greater scale than the prequels.
• "It's underneath what's going on," he reiterated about the series' focus, "It's the criminals and the gangs. The guys who are running Wall Street, basically. The guys who are running the United States."
• "They take place between Episode III and Episode IV. That 20 year period when Luke is growing up. It's not about Luke, but it's about that period when the Empire is trying to take things [over]."
