Disney Making Multiple Star Wars Streaming Series
There are more than just one new Star Wars series on their way!
New Star Wars Series Being Developed At Disney For Streaming App!
Today it has been revealed that Disney is developing multiple Star Wars series for their upcoming streaming service. At a recent earning call Disney CEO Bob Iger told investors, “We are developing not just one, but a few Star Wars series specifically for the Disney direct to consumer app. We’ve mentioned that and we are close to being able to reveal at least one of the entities that is developing that for us. Because the deal isn’t completely closed, we can’t be specific about that… I think you’ll find the level of talent … on the television front will be rather significant as well.” Some may be animated series and others could be live-action. Only time will tell exactly what each series will be about and what time era they'll take place in.
Iger expanded on the upcoming Star Wars film series coming from Game of Thrones creators Benioff and Weiss saying, “Their interest was in creating a series of films that are Star Wars-based and we’ve actually been talking to them for a long time. To my knowledge, they didn’t express interest in creating a series. They have an idea for a number of films and at some later date, I’m sure we’ll disclose to all of you just what those are. They are focused on a point in time in the Star Wars mythology and taking it from there.” It has been speculated that the duo will tackle the popular video game series Knights of the Old Republic and adapt that sprawling storyline into a film series and this would seem to give credence to that theory.
