Disney’s streaming service will be travelling to a galaxy far far away once again.
The Skywalker saga will officially see its end this year with the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Following this, Disney confirmed that the hit franchise will take a much needed break from the big screen for the next three years. That being said, Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will be developing their trilogy set to release in 2022, and Disney will begin to craft the long-awaited TV side of the Star Wars universe.
There are two highly-anticipated live-action Star Wars TV Series’ that will debut on the new Disney+ streaming service. Now, thanks to the most recent Disney investors call, we know from CEO Bob Iger himself that there will be a third live-action Star Wars TV series that will also be included in the lineup.
“…In the interim we are producing two Star Wars live-action series for Disney+: one of them is called The Mandalorian, which being supervised by Jon Favreau, and the other one is a bit of a prequel to Rogue One. And my guess is there will probably be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+ (meaning a Star Wars series), before we release the next film.”
Unfortunately, no other details were provided about the series aside from the confirmation. The Mandalorian will chronicle the titular warrior (Pedro Pascal), who is described as a “Gunfighter” living in the far reaches of the galaxy, in the days after the fall of the Empire. Meanwhile, the Rogue One prequel series will be a “spy thriller” centered around Diego Luna’s Rogue One character, Rebel Alliance spy Cassian Andor, and Cassian’s fan-favorite droid companion K-2SO (Alan Tudyk).
