Lucas had hoped to give each episode the look of a feature film, with feature-level production values and visual effects on a television budget. In 2005, Lucas stated his intention was to shoot the series using consumer-level cameras to save on budget, but, this didn’t blow over well as his producers wanted a higher level of cameras such as high def. According to rumors, Lucas wanted a 20 million dollar production by only spending 1 million or less. That wasn’t an option as each episode was estimated between 2 and 4 million. In 2010, During a screening of The Empire Strikes Back in Chicago, Lucas announced that the series was “on hold” due to budget concerns.
He explained that the series was too expensive and that they would have to wait for the technology to further develop so they could keep costs lower. At last, it has been years since we’ve heard any real word on what happened to those 50 scripts that were written. Disney CEO Bob Iger has stated that the studio has looked at all Star Wars material in recent years including Star Wars: Underworld.
It’s rumored that The Mandalorian may have taken some material from those scripts, but, only time will really tell…Would you have liked to watch Star Wars: Underworld
