Star Trek And Battlestar Galactica's Ron Moore Wants To Make A Star Wars TV Show

Disney already has 10 new Star Wars shows in the works, so it might not happen soon, but Moore has ideas.


Sci-fi veteran Ron Moore--who is known for his work on Star Trek, Battlestar Galactica, and Outlander--is now working at Disney and has some ideas for a Star Wars show.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, Moore said he "would love" to be able to work on a Star Wars TV show under his new eight-figure deal with Disney. He cautioned that it might be some time before it happens because Disney is quite busy with the 10 Star Wars TV shows that the company announced back in December.

Still, Moore said he hopes to be able to do it someday. As fans may recall, Moore was working on a live-action Star Wars TV show with George Lucas many years ago, but it fell apart.

"I would love to do something in that franchise. It was fun to go work on the abortive live-action show that I did way back when," he said of this project. "I got a tremendous amount of thrill of writing lines for Darth Vader in one episode and it would be fun to do that again. It's just not the first piece of development I'm doing over there but hopefully I'll be allowed to do that at some point."

Moore said he does not currently have a "fully formed" pitch that he could bring to Disney for a new Star Wars show, but he said he has "a couple of notions in the back of my head."

"Ideas and arenas that I think would be fun to poke around the corners of the Star Wars universe, yes," he said.

Next up for Moore is an intriguing-sounding Magic Kingdom TV universe for Disney+. Moore is also working on an adaptation of Swiss Family Robinson for Disney+ with Jon M. Chu (Crazy Rich Asians) as part of his deal with Disney.

As for the other Star Wars TV shows in the works, these include live-action programs such as Rangers of the New Republic, Ahsoka, Andor, Obi-Wan Kenobi, Lando, The Acolyte, The Book of Boba Fett, as well as animated shows like The Bad Batch, Visions, and Droid Story.
