Australian actress Rose Byrne, who stars in the TV show Damages, and also had a very small role as Dorme, one of Princess Amidala's handmaidens in Attack of the Clones, recently did an interview in which she talks about her Star Wars experiences. She is then asked about the new live-action Star Wars TV series currently in development, which we know very little about, and this is what she say's:
Yes! A friend of mine is actually one of the writers on the show. It’s set in space. I think it’s like a family drama, as well, or something? I think he melted a few ideas together for it.
This is some very interesting news. The live-action Star Wars TV series is going to be a family drama. I know when it was announced that Battlestar Galactica's prequel series Caprica would be a family drama, it turned a lot of fans off, even though the first part that was released for it was really good. The "family drama" description doesn't bother me at all. Just because it is a family drama doesn't mean it wont be good, so don't let it turn you off, its still Star Wars. The whole series of films is one big family drama if you think about it.
I'm looking forward to this Star Wars TV Series. It will be a hell of a long time before we see it, but there is a lot of potential for a great series. What do you think?
