Star Wars: Underworld: this was the George Lucas series that wasn't

In mid-2005, when there was still no Lucasfilm purchasing firm on behalf of Disney, the historical director of Star Wars, George Lucas, was making the first television series of the galactic saga. Your name: Underworld, and counted the beginnings and formation of the Empire after the rise of Emperor Palpatine, Darth Vader and the extension of the first stormtroopers.

It will be located between The Revenge of the Sith and A new Hope and will consist of about one hundred chapters of 42 minutes each.

And even when more than fifty scripts were written for the project, it never saw the light and ended up being canceled.

That is why a video that circulates on YouTube, which shows more than four minutes of footage of the series, in addition to a making off by Stargate Studios (Doctor Who) and Lucasfilm.

On a planet that is Coruscant, a group of imperial soldiers is shown behind a possible rebel who carries plans of one of the ships of the Empire.

Some of the characters that were involved in the George Lucas series were: Bobba Fett, Saw Gerrera, Han Solo, Lando Calrissian, Chewbacca, Palpatine and Darth Vader.

Among the arguments of the series is also the association of Darth Vader with a gang of criminals called the Crymorah union, as also that this group of thieves had access to the former soldiers of the Galactic Federation and that there is a great celebration to celebrate To the emperor.

Also one of the central ideas of the series is that after order 66 the low profile of the Jedi survivors of the catastrophe will be shown, which to hide their identities, they stopped using their powers and their lightsabers.

Finally, Han Solo will be involved with another mafia clan in the series called the Pyke Union, for whom he will smuggle space.

Everything can be found in a Google document that was left with access to the public, where you can also see scenes of George Lucas planning the production and recording of what would have been the predecessor of The Mandalorian.
