“Star Wars: Underworld,” the shelved project circa 2005 that would have been a live-action Star Wars television show rumored to involve Boba Fett, is abuzz on Reddit and now MovieWeb today — but for all the wrong reasons. Someone saw the release date to the user-submitted content website IMDb as listing December 2018.
Wait a second now.
As we’ve seen in the past with Temuera Morrison being added to projects on IMDb incorrectly in 2014, we had to take a closer look with an IMDb Pro account, which lists more information than the public website. Here’s what we see:
As you can see here, there is not only no activity on the pre-production and production front, but also a handful of old credits like Rick McCallum are there. Rick was originally attached to the project but hasn’t produced Star Wars content since the prequels.
This sure looks like fan speculation and another goof with IMDb authenticity. Move along.
On a more positive note: are you curious for vintage information on what this project was all hyped to become? We last mentioned Underworld in January 2012 when a movie site paired it with the comic book by the same name and also in an MTV News summary where Daniel Logan was also then listed as rumored only.
