RUMOR: Disney Developing Several More Star Wars Streaming Shows


The upcoming Disney+ streaming service will feature the Star Wars series The Mandalorian and a spinoff for Rogue One's Cassian Andor, but that may just be the start of things. Rumors have started swirling around the possibility of multiple series set in the universe coming to the potential streaming giant, starring large and bit players across different eras.

According to a new report from HNEntertainment, several major and minor characters from Star Wars canon could be the stars of their own upcoming shows.

Right now, the biggest character who could potentially be getting their own series is Princess Leia, who could appear in a prequel series starring a younger version of Carrie Fisher's hero.

According to the report, Disney is also reportedly considering a series about the Sith Lord Darth Bane. Bane was the protagonist of a trio of novels centered written bu Mass Effect writer Drew Karpyshyn and later made an appearance in an episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars.

Other characters said to be getting their own series are more recent additions to Star Wars lore. Most notably, the First Order's Captain Phasma and Kylo Ren's Knights of Ren; the Knights have been mentioned in both Star Wars: The Force Awakens and Star Wars: The Last Jedi, but have yet to show up in the films themselves. Finally, Kelly Marie Tran's mechanic/hero Rose Tico is also reportedly in contention for her own series.

While there's no guarantee that any of these theoretical shows will ever actually be produced, Disney is reportedly planning several Star Wars shows for its upcoming streaming service, which is expected to launch this year.
