Disney is actually developing multiple Star Wars shows

In November, shortly after granting Rian Johnson his own Star Wars trilogy, Disney announced that it was developing a live-action Star Wars TV series for its streaming app that may or may not be a revival of a canceled show that was in the works before George Lucas sold the brand to Disney. Today, Disney gave Game Of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss their own Star Wars spin-off movies, so just like last time, it has also announced another Star Wars TV series coming to its streaming app.

That’s according to The Hollywood Reporter, which says Disney CEO Bob Iger told investors today that his company is developing “a few Star Wars series specifically for the Disney direct-to-consumer app.” He didn’t offer any real details, but he says they are “close” to being able to name one of the “entities” who is developing one of the shows—which is about as vague as possible while still being a complete thought. He says the “level of talent” is “significant,” but it’s hard to get much out of that since it’s not like he’d say “one of the shows is being made by some idiot.”


The streaming service, whatever it will be called, is set to launch late next year. That means Iger has plenty of time to figure out what he can and cannot say about these Star Wars shows.
