If and when the Star Wars TV series is made, a large part of it will be shot in the Czech Republic, according to producer Rick McCallum, who has worked with filmmaker George Lucas since “The Young Indiana Jones Chronicles” television series in the early 1990s, which was also partly shot in Prague, and who produced three Star Wars films.
McCallum did reveal some of the basic storyline in the finished scripts. “It takes place between episodes three and four, when Luke Skywalker was growing up as a teenager, but it has nothing to do with Luke,” he said, adding that there is no young Luke Skywalker in any of the episodes. Episode three, “Revenge of the Sith” covers the time up until Luke’s birth. Episode four — the original “Star Wars” released in 1977, later called “A New Hope” — finds Luke at the start of his involvement with the Rebel Alliance.
“Basically, it is like ‘The Godfather’; it’s the Empire slowly building up its power base around the galaxy, what happens in Coruscant, which is the major capital, and it’s [about] a group of underground bosses who live there and control drugs, prostitution,” McCallum said.
