With the Disney acquisition of Lucasfilm and Star Wars completed, and pre-production now underway on Star Wars: Episode VII, other outposts of the Disney empire are free to look at developing yet more Star Wars projects. Disney-owned American broadcaster ABC is interested in the long-mooted live action Star Wars TV series.

ABC entertainment president Paul Lee told Entertainment Weekly: "We'd love to do something with Lucasfilm. We're not sure what yet. We haven't even sat down with them. We're going to look at [the live-action series]. We're going to look at all of them, and see what's right. We weren't able to discuss this with them until [the acquisition] closed and it just closed. It's definitely going to be part of the conversation."

Lucasfilm has previously developed 50 scripts for a live action Star Wars TV series that was to be based around the criminal underworld of the bounty hunters and was said by ex-Lucasfilm producer Rick McCallum to be akin to "Deadwood in space". According to previous reports, Lucasfilm were waiting for special effects technology to develop before the live action TV series would be affordable. Elements of that planned series are reputed to have been used in forthcoming bounty hunter Star Wars videogame 1313.
