Can you spoil a TV series that might never actually happen? That seems to be one of the many questions surrounding a recent Ain’t It Cool News post about the much-talked about, dark Star Wars: Underworld live-action series that Rick McCallum explained has been shelved for budgetary reasons. If you don’t want potential spoilers for a show that may never air, read no further.
According to the new, untested AICN source, Underworld 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.”
It’s an interesting possibility, and one that would have obvious ramifications on the prequels if it actually proved to be true and/or this particular group of bandits succeeds in its mission. This would also keep with McCallum’s claim that the live-action series would be darker and deal with the seedier side of the Star Wars Universe.
Again, it can’t be stated clearly enough that this is just a rumor right now. Heck, it sounds more like disgruntled fan fiction than anything, but we’ll all have to wait and see how things shake out with the shelved series.
