Live Action Star Wars TV Series Casting

starwarsbatThough it’s getting pretty good ratings on Cartoon Network, Clone Wars left a lot of Star Wars fans scarred. So scarred in fact that we’d almost forgotten there’s another, potentially better Star Wars television project in Lucas’s fan-pipe.

The live action Star Wars television series is still happening, and MTV says casting is already underway. Actress Rose Byrne let the info slip while junketing for her new movie Knowing. Says Byrne, “A lot of my friends have been auditioning for it.”

Last we heard the show will focus on minor characters in the Star Wars universe. Don’t expect to see Luke Skywalker or Han Solo for instance. It happens in the time period between Episode III and Episode IV, when the Empire is at its strongest and the Jedi are extinct. Because of that, don’t expect to see any Jedi, or for that matter lightsabers on screen either.

Anybody else having a Battle for Endor flashback?

    The more I read about this TV series the more angry I get. I am a huge fan of the movies (more so the original 3). I am all about making a series out of the movies, but why keep out the original characters? The movies have great reviews for a reason, why leave out the best part? Especially since its bridging the gap between the two trilogies!!

    TAYLOR MOMSEN: The only other time I’ve been on a stage was when I starred as the Little Red Hen in the second grade. But my family used to play music and dance around in the basement every Saturday night. My sister and I even formed a band called Pink Boa—we’d put on tutus and masks, disney acting auditions and I’d sing and play guitar and she’d play the drums. We knew two songs, “Seven Nation Army” and “I Love Rock ‘n’ Roll.”
