Lucasfilm hires Jon Favreau to produce live-action Star Wars TV series.

Witness the power of this fully operatiOK, that joke is played out: “Lucasfilm is excited to announce that Emmy-nominated producer and actor Jon Favreau has signed on to executive produce and write a live-action Star Wars series for Disney’s new direct-to-consumer platform. Favreau is no stranger to the Star Wars galaxy having played roles in both the Star Wars: The Clone Wars animated series and in the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story.”   But will it suck?

Good question.  By all accounts, Clone Wars does not — but it’s animation, which means that they save a mint on special effects that way.  The question really is, what are they going to do in that universe?  I mean, sure, KOTOR screams out for a miniseries.  It screams so very, very loudly.  But who here thinks that Disney’s gonna go down that road?

Yeah… yeah.  Me, neither.

PS: I’d so totally watch a KOTOR miniseries. First and second campaigns. I’d pay for the streaming service providing it without even slowing down.
