STAR WARS: Lucasfilm Rumored To Be Developing Animated Movies Set In A Galaxy Far, Far Away For Disney+

Star Wars has found an unexpected home on Disney+, and a new rumour points to Lucasfilm developing new animated features set in a Galaxy Far, Far Away. Hit the jump for details on what we know so far...

Happy Star Wars Day! 

It wouldn't be May 4th without a big rumour relating to the future of this iconic franchise, and Cinelinx's Jordan Maison has now dropped an intriguing mention about plans for animated Star Wars movies on Disney+. The Clone Wars star Matt Lanter recently teased his return as Anakin Skywalker, so a solo outing revolving around his time as a Jedi wouldn't be outside the realm of possibility, for example.

It's likely still early days, but we know Lucasfilm is developing a number of live-action TV shows for the streaming service, while animated properties like The Clone Wars and The Bad Batch have proven to be right at home on Disney+. Big screen plans for the franchise remain vague, but if The Mandalorian has proven anything, it's that this Galaxy Far, Far Away works just as well on television. 

There are lots of gaps in the Star Wars Universe's history that could be filled in with an animated feature, and any number of characters who might benefit from being the focus. 

Unfortunately, until Lucasfilm makes some official announcements, we're obviously left to speculate!
