From Ain' it cool news:

(Possible "plot spoiler".
But well... at this point... I don't mind)


"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. "

:oops:
Lucas (or the writers) must have read Stephen King's recent book 11/22/63.
As long as this is not THE main idea behind this series, but just one plot in one episode then I'd guess it could be okay.
Does not feel like Star Wars though. But we're used to that by now.

I guess that makes them...time bandits?

Sorry...it had to be said ;-)

I agree that if it's just one story, it might work. Seems likely extremely well-worn ground, though...

Not sure I like the idea of time travel in a Star Wars series to be honest. I hope most of the series is set in the Underworld i.e. bounty hunters and low life of Coruscant.
A better story would be somebody traveling back in time to try to stop George Lucas from making the PT.

PLOT SYNOPSIS: The entire human population becomes obsessed with the past and trying to improve it. In the not-too-distant future this obsession culminates with the invention of the most destructive technology ever made. Time travel. While most people use it to go back and punch their younger selves right in the face before they make a giant mistake involving alcohol, a woman who seemed pretty at the time, and a karaoke bar, two geeks trace the origin of this obsession with the past back to Star Wars and, more specifically, George Lucas. In an attempt to save mankind, these would-be heroes travel back in time to try to stop the man who made it possible to travel back in time...


Whoever gets rich off that story idea can buy me dinner. And pay off my student loans please.

and if the series is even half as good as that book it will be fantastic Big Grin

i would love to see that right away. That is such a nice concept for a star wars series. Actually many fans would be able to identify with the characters in such a series. they would be much more emotionally invested.
i all seriousness, the clone wars series started bad with that crappy movie but after that it improved quite a lot, and i find it a decent show to watch. i don't have much faith in this underworld series but who knows... if it gets ever made anyway....

Yes please. Then we can party like it's 1999.
