The nature of the moviemaking business is that not everything comes to fruition. Filmmakers can work on a project for years, even coming so far as to finishing casting, only to see it dissolve or evolve into something wholly unrecognizable. One of the more curious “could have been” projects of the last few years is the proposed Star Wars live-action series Star Wars: Underworld. George Lucas and producer Rick McCallum worked for a long while to put together a live-action TV show iteration of Star Wars, commissioning nearly 50 scripts and bringing together a team of writers to see them through. However, the project currently remains just an idea unlikely to ever move forward.
The mystery surrounding the scrapped TV series has grown to nearly mythic proportions, but the veil has now been lifted ever so slightly, revealing that the show would have delved into the backstories of Han Solo, Lando, Boba Fett, and more. Read on after the jump.
