There are so many possibilities.
Star Wars: The Clone Wars proved that the Star Wars universe could work as a weekly show. Clone Wars managed to be a mature war show that happened to be a CGI cartoon, taking the prequel era and turning it into a time period fans were excited to see. Star Wars Rebels has continued the trend thanks to the continued involvement of Dave Filoni and a fantastic production team.
But with the rumors that Netflix and Disney are in the process of developing multiple Star Wars shows, we can’t help but wonder what they will be. Better yet, we’re wonder what we want them to be. So, here are the four most wanted shows that popped into our heads:
This one is a no-brainer. Space: Above and Beyond and the new Battlestar Galactica proved you could make a weekly space combat show well. There are tons of great Rogue Squadron stories scattered across games, books, and comics that would give a writing staff plenty of material to work with. You could set it in one of two time periods: pre or post-Return of the Jedi. Either one would give many potential stories, but given the gap in canon we currently have after the Battle of Endor there’s a lot of tales that could be mined from the early days of the New Republic.
Star Wars Underworld
It’s already written and ready to be made, which is a big plus in its favor. Not only that, but the people who wrote the series are some of the most talented people in the business including the showrunner of the new Battlestar Galactica and Outlander: Ronald D. Moore. Set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, Underworld chronicled a time when the Galactic Empire was still establishing itself and several crime syndicates battled for control of the underworld (presumably on Coruscant). It’s been described as “Deadwoord in space” and “The Godfather,” which is more than enough to get us to urge Disney to get this one into production as soon as possible.
Ventress and Ahsoka
We may have talked about this one before, but these two made such a good duo in their short time on screen we can’t help but want to see more of them. Sure, we know Ahsoka lives long enough to see the rise of the Rebellion, but Ventress’ fate is very much a question mark. And, after all, we have many missing years between Ahsoka’s last appearance on Clone Wars and her first appearance on Rebels, which means we have a lot of lost time for her new adventures.
Knights of the Old Republic
While we also would love to see this as a group of anthology films, we feel Bioware’s game has enough content to warrant an entire TV show. You could break it into about four or five seasons starting with Taris and working your way forward. The Revan reveal would make for one of the best moments on television if handled correctly. If people like it enough, you could even make The Sith Lords into a sequel show and wrap the storyline up correctly… instead of what The Old Republic did.
