Recently Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger had the following to say during a Q&A at the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit. Courtesy of Entertainment Weekly:
Iger also teased that a third Star Wars TV series is in the works for the company’s Disney+ streaming service. When it debuts this November, Disney+ will include producer Jon Favreau’s The Mandalorian series, about a masked gunfighter seeking a bounty in the lawless time after the events of Return of the Jedi.
Another series overseen by The Americans producer Stephen Schiff will focus on Diego Luna’s Rebel spy Cassian Andor from Rogue One and his droid sidekick K-2S0 (Alan Tudyk.)
“My guess is there probably will be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+, a Star Wars series, before we release the next film,” Iger said. “So we’re not doing nothing. I believe these TV series will be extremely popular for Star Wars fans and very very valuable to Disney+ while we gear up for the next set of films. We haven’t said anything more beyond what we’ve announced on the next film.”
