According to the site Cinelinx Disney is already holding auditions for a new Star Wars TV specials and even a mini-series...
According to my source, who I can't name, Disney's casting auditions for Star Wars haven't just been limited to the upcoming film, Episode VII. Rather, they were told the people holding the auditions were casting for roles in as yet unannounced television projects including "specials and mini-series".
With so many rumors about ongoing auditions this report really sounds legit. Remember that a few months ago JediNews revealed a very interesting info found on a brochure from the European Brand Licensing Show.
The most interesting thing from the brochure was the upcoming Darth Vader Themed TV Specials. So could this be one of the projects that the auditions are for? Most likely. And about the other projects we just have to wait and see what else Disney has in sTore for us...
Speaking of TV Live Action Series here's a cool comment from screenwriter Ronald D. Moore about the times when he was working with George Lucas on the cancelled Star Wars TV series called Underworld:
"I did, for a bit of time, work on what was going to be a Star Wars live-action series. We’d go gather at Skywalker Ranch periodically, every couple of months, and break stories and write scripts for this proposed series that George was interested in. And George was in the ring with us every day. And it was a fascinating, amazing experience. There was George Lucas and we’d be arguing stories and there was a point where I found myself in an intense argument with George about what Darth Vader would or would not do, and part of my brain kind of went, ‘What the hell are you doing? Are you really going to argue with George Lucas about what Darth Vader would do?"
It looks like Darth Vader was part of that series. Come on Disney, resurrect that project immediately!
