Disney CEO Bob Iger loves dropping hints with almost throwaway comments that get fans speculating and the latest news from an investor call is that a third live-action “Star Wars” series is in the works for Disney+! We have absolutely no idea as to what it could be about and the only real detail is that it will be released after ‘Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker‘ in the three years before the next trilogy comes to the big screen.

The new ‘Star Wars’ series will be joining ‘The Mandalorian‘ and the ‘Rogue One‘ prequel which has Diego Luna as a younger Cassian Andor in the rebellion and will possibly show off some of his darker moments which were only hinted at in the film.
The news came from Iger:
“…In the interim we are producing two Star Wars live-action series for Disney+: one of them is called ‘The Mandalorian,’ which being supervised by Jon Favreau, and the other one is a bit of a prequel to ‘Rogue One.’ And my guess is there will probably be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+ (meaning a Star Wars series) before we release the next film.”
As the CEO of the largest media company in the world, Iger isn’t one to throw out an open-ended comment like that if it were pure speculation. My only thought is that Kathleen Kennedy previously stated that characters from the last story in the Skywalker Saga could return in the future.
What era of the “Star Wars” franchise do you hope this new live-action series will take place in? Do you think three shows will be a good number or too many considering the next film is a few years off, and these won’t all be released at the same time? Share your thoughts in the comments below!
The first of these new live-action shows, ‘The Mandalorian’ is slated to be released on November 12th, 2019 on Disney+!
