George Lucas wins all his arguments…
During an interview on Last Call with Carson Daily, Ronald D. Moore (Battlestar Galactica) discussed working on a never-produced live-action Star Wars TV series. Below are some highlights and a video of the interview.
Moore on a Star Wars TV series: "I did, for a bit of time, work on what was going to be a Star Wars live-action series. We'd go gather at Skywalker Ranch periodically, every couple of months, and break stories and write scripts for this proposed series that George was interested in."
Moore on working with George Lucas: "George was in the ring with us every day, and it was a fascinating, amazing experience. There was George Lucas and we'd be arguing [about] stories, and there was a point where I found myself in an intense argument with George about what Darth Vader would or would not do, and part of my brain kind of went, 'What the hell are you doing? Are you really going to argue with George Lucas about what Darth Vader would do?'"
Moore on who won the argument: "George gets to win all of his arguments."
