At this point, I think Star Wars will never again be on television outside of animation shows like Clone Wars.
You know how the saying goes...
Why pay to see a movie when you can watch the show at home for free?
I don't think the evidence bears that out. Six of the Star Trek
movies came out during a period when there were Star Trek
television shows on the air, and several of those movies were quite successful. The first X-Files
movie came out during the show's run and did reasonably well. Going back a ways, the 1966 Batman
movie, released between the first two seasons of the associated show, did moderately well in theaters.
Not to mention that presumably a Star Wars
TV series would focus on different characters and storylines than the movies, so they wouldn't be equivalent.
On another subject, given how many SW-related threads there suddenly are now and how many there will be over the years to come, I wonder how long it'll be before the TrekBBS reestablishes a separate Star Wars
subforum within Science Fiction & Fantasy.
