For those of you worried about the three-year lull between Star Wars films following The Rise of Skywalker, fret not. Sure, there may be a delay before getting more feature films. Notwithstanding , there is going to be plenty of Star Wars content available to bridge the gap. Don’t forget, The Mandalorian debuts this November on Disney’s streaming platform, Disney+. Joining it for immediately release is the final season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars. Now Disney CEO Bob Iger is hinting that we’ll get another live-action Star Wars series before 2022, as well.
If that’s true, we’re going to have our hands full with live-action Star Wars series for years to come. In addition to The Mandalorian (which Disney has already picked up for a second season), we know a Cassian Andor spin-off series is coming. That show will likely premier sometime next year. According to Iger, however, we may see one, or even more, additional live-action Star Wars series before the next trilogy hits theaters.
Disney CEO says more Star Wars series coming
Speaking at the Moffett Nathanson Media & Communications Summit, io9 tells us, Iger had this to say about future Disney+ programming:
My guess is there will probably be one more, at least one more, live-action [Star Wars] series that we produce for Disney+…before we release the next film.”
The prospect of even more live-action Star Wars series beamed to our living rooms for the cost of one Starbucks latte a month is certainly appealing. Now the question is what the new programming will include. Thus far there have been rumors of everything from an Obi-Wan Kenobi miniseries to the fabled Boba Fett feature.
The next big event at which we can expect Star Wars news is San Diego Comic-Con in July. Hopefully, we’ll get some additional insight into these new Star Wars series then. Until then, Bob Iger is just teasing us.
