Multiple Star Wars TV Shows Headed to Disney Streaming Service


Disney has multiple Star Wars TV shows in the works. CEO Bob Iger revealed that the studio has "a few" Star Wars projects being developed for Disney's streaming service.

"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 interties 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," Iger announced during an earnings call, per The Hollywood Reporter.

Disney originally announced a live-action Star Wars series for its streaming service back in November. However, at the time of that announcement, it seemed as though Disney had plans for only one show based in the Star Wars universe. It is unclear at this time if all of these Star Wars shows will be live-action, as the franchise also has animated series like Star Wars: The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels under its belt.

Earlier today, Lucasfilm announced that Game of Thrones TV show creators and showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss will write and produce a new series of films set within the Star Wars universe. The duo will get to work on Star Wars once the final season of HBO's Game of Thrones, based on George R. R. Martin’s fantasy novels, wraps up next year. No release window has been announced for the films, and it’s unclear if they’ll be in the “Star Wars Story” anthology film slate.

Though the streaming service is expected to kick-off in late-2019, a launch date for the Star Wars shows has yet to be revealed.
