I, like some of you, were a little saddened that Fox never let “Terminator : Sarah Connor Chronicles” get the ending it deserved. The network characteristically screwed the show over – leaving fans open-mouthed from a cliff-hanger that’d never be resolved.
To make up for the absence of a good time-traveling actioner on current TV schedules, George Lucas has simply infused his long-gestating “Star Wars Underworld” live-action TV series with a “Terminator”-esque plot device.
Here’s the *** SPOILER **** scoop from AICN :
Daniel tells us that one of the series’ first episodes will involve a group of bandits acquiring the capability of time travel, and using it to travel back in time to stop Darth Vader from ever existing.
This is certainly in keeping with past indications we’ve heard about the show – that it would involve the “darker” side of the STAR WARS universe, criminal factions, Empire building, etc. While “time travel” is relatively new to the film and television canon of the STAR WARS universe, it’s a factor that has at least been acknowledge/discussed in the franchise’s “Extended Universe” (details HERE). As such, its potential inclusion in this show is not as remarkable as one might initially believe.
What do you think? Are we ready for time travel in the STAR WARS mythos, or might its presence provide an irresistible temptation for Lucas to organically revise STAR WARS history even further?
Ouch. Why can’t the group of bandits be travelling back in time to eliminate the whole Binks clan?
