Jon Favreau's Live Action STAR WARS Series Will Reportedly Cost About $100 Million For 10 Episodes

The live-action Star Wars show from Jon Favreau (Iron Man) is one of the most hotly anticipated series set to air on the Disney streaming service, and now we know the project will have a massive budget.

Streaming services are all the rage nowadays, and soon enough Disney will be launching its very own service. But since the project is still in the early stages of development, we know very little about what content will be available.

However, one program we do know fans will be able to stream is a live-action Star Wars show from Iron Man director Jon Favreau, which will be set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.

Like most projects set in the Star Wars universe, story details on the series remain under wraps. But thanks to a report from the New York Times, we know the highly anticipated show "is expected to cost roughly $100 million for 10 episodes."

This whopping number means the series will join the likes of Game of Thrones, whose sixth season had a similar budget. Though, this shouldn't come as too big of a surprise as Favreau and Disney will likely need to spend a lot on VFX among other things. Plus, the new Star Wars program is undoubtedly a big selling point for the streaming service, which means they'll try to make sure it's of the highest quality.
