Back in January, it looked like the live-action ‘Star Wars’ series was dead and buried, but ABC’s president Channing Dungey provided an update during her presentation at the Television Critics Association press tour.
‘Oh, as a fan, I would absolutely love to say ‘yes.’ The conversations with Lucas, we have had conversations with them and will continue to have conversations with them. I think it would be wonderful if we could find a way to extend that brand into our programming,’ said Dungey.
According to Dungey, there is a lot red tape to get through at Lucasfilm before an official timeline could be determined on a series.
‘It’s all a little bit hush, hush…That company [Lucasfilm] exists under a huge banner of secrecy. If you thought Marvel was secretive, Lucas takes it to a whole other level. We don’t have an official timeline yet,’ said Dungey to The Wrap.
