'Star Wars' Live-Action Series Possibly Headed To Netflix, Deal In The Works!!

By Matt O'Bryant

What's up guys and gals,

Star Wars on Netflix!  Live Action Star Wars show in the vein of Bloodline or Daredevil!  Okay everyone, don't let your heads explode with to much excitement yet, because this is still just a rumor even though it is a BIG rumor that a lot of credible sources and sites are running with. We heard about this possibly happening a couple of days ago and have been just waiting for some type of confirmation, but since every major website is running with this story now we might as well too.  I mean who are we kidding this would be amazing!  

According to the source Cinelinx.com here are the details below:

Disney is looking to continue their partnership with Netflix for their Star Wars shows. Yes, I said shows. I’ve heard there’s talk of potentially three different live-action shows for Netflix, in much the same way Marvel has deals in place for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, etc.

Because of the extreme success of Daredevil, Netflix is working with Disney on the cheap and more than happy to continue their relationship. For Lucasfilm this makes a lot of sense, as they want to keep the cinematic feel of the movies going with the TV shows. Netflix allows for such a presentation much better than network television, while also giving them a chance to explore stories and characters which otherwise might not be a good fit somewhere else.

While initial rumors surrounding Star Wars on TV pegged ABC or another Disney owned channel as being the likeliest spot for a series (like Agents of SHIELD), that doesn’t seem to be the case anymore. Let’s look at the facts, Netflix and other online options are quickly overtaking regular TV. This year’s Emmy nominations are absolutely PACKED with shows from non-traditional sources and in terms of revenue, Netflix is set to overtake network TV very shortly. It’s the way the world is moving and Disney is great at keeping with current trends.

Now while I think a live action Star Wars series would be great, I think three shows is a tad to much. By the way in case some of you didn't know this is not the first rumors of a live action Star Wars television show, there were plans years ago for a live action Star Wars show on HBO dealing with the underworld of Coruscant in the vein of Sopranos or The Wire supposedly.

Anyways, we will see if this becomes a reality sometime soon, leave us your thoughts on a live action Star Wars Netflix series below in the comments, thanks!
