Hello everyone, your friendly neighborhood Professor Hulk, here. I’m about to drop some knowledge of some exciting stuff in the film and TV world. This week I’m excited to share news on a villain-centric Star Wars series coming to Disney+.
Another Disney+ Star Wars Series
I’ve exclusively learned that Lucasfilm and Disney are hard at work on a villain-centric Star Wars story that will band together with various villains from the Star Wars universe. This will be a live-action Disney+ series, which is in line with the company’s focus on delivering quality Star Wars content to the streaming platform.
The show has been in development under secrecy for some time. With scripts being written and pre-production gearing up all in a short time and with little attention. Meaning that the show is essentially ready to shoot, and will start shooting late this summer and in early Fall.
This villain-centric series is said to focus on a group of villains in the Star Wars universe. Sources close to the project describe it as similar to The Suicide Squad or The Dirty Dozen with many villains teaming up for more altruistic purposes. Meaning they will be villains recruited to aid in a mission for the Rebels.
My sources indicated that this occurs between the original trilogy and the sequel trilogy. This would place this in the time of The Mandalorian. This does mean that characters from that show could show up, although that does not limit who can and will show up. I asked for more details on who would show up and all my sources would disclose are that we should expect some familiar faces.
Disney is keeping details tight on this project, but as it is expected to start filming soon; we will start to get more details. As More information becomes available as we get closer to the shoot date including the cast and a proper title. Stay tuned to ThatHashtagShow.com for more updates and info.
