I for some reason, want to see a Star Wars show without light sabers and Jedi. It was great when we had those Clone-Centric episodes in TCW where the story was of course in the SW universe, but we didn't have the force wielding characters in the plot.
It seemed like the Inquistors only purpose in Rebels was to give Kaanan someone to pary against. Otherwise Kalus would have done just fine as 'the guy hunting down the rebels'.
I won't believe it until I see it advertised on TV.... but... I agree with Cyclone. It'd be good to have a series set away from the main characters, away from the Jedi. (Probably cheaper for them as well)
I wonder if they'll keep it aimed at an adult audience (think I remember that was the targeted demographic of the previously hinted series) - if the kids have Rebels and other animations, it'd be cool to have a darker, underworldy type show.
Just keep politics, policy and regulations out of it. Also, I hope it's WAAAAAAAAAAAAAY better than Agents of Shield.
It could be overkill though, if we are getting spinoffs, all these new comics, and more animated shows....
Well, If I remember correctly, that Underworld show never got the greenlight because they said it would cost X millions of dollars per epsisode, and they were waiting for the cost to come down. I don't know what they wrote, but it must have been CGI heavy. Since Disney has low balled TCW down to Rebels, I wonder how much budget they are willing to throw at a SW live action show. Likely not enough to use the 'underground' screenplays.
...this may be an old rumor, but I'm not even gonna think bout it till they have something of fact. Seems a bit of a long shot IMO. They're still sitting on the mostly completed SW Detours.. much rather see that than the lame LEGO cartoons they insist on pumping out. They're cool for a laugh like once-but meh, enough already.
It is a fair way off yet.
Like the idea of it being similar to the Avengers/Agents of SHIELD spin, and the fact that it is to be somewhat brought up to date with Star Wars' first LGBT character. I like lesbians, but they don't like me.. hehehe
