Disney Is Developing More Than One STAR WARS Live-Action Series For Its Upcoming Streaming Service

We knew Disney was planning to produce a new live-action Star Wars series for its still untitled steaming service in 2019, but CEO Bob Iger has now confirmed that there's actually "a few" in development.

Earlier today we found out that Game of Thrones creators/showrunners David Benioff and D.B. Weiss had been put in charge of a new trilogy of Star Wars movies, and now we have some more news from the galaxy far, far away.

Disney CEO Bob Iger (via THR) has revealed that there are multiple live-action Star Wars TV shows planned for the company's direct-to-consumer digital platform that's set to launch late next year. Though he didn't spill any details, he did promise that an official announcement was forthcoming, and that we should "find the level of talent on the television front will be rather significant as well."

As for Benioff and Weiss, Iger did seem to provide a vague hint as to what they might be planning:


"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 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."

That "point in time" quote has already led to speculation that this could be something based on or at least influenced by The Knights of the Old Republic, but that's probably just wishful thinking.

Tell us, what do you hope to see from these live-action shows? Any partucular characters you want them to focus on? Sound off below!
