With the massive success of the "The Mandalorian" on Disney+, and with Disney's quality-first business strategy, comes the next set of Star Wars shows to Disney's streaming service. Both will come to Disney+.
A Droid Story animated series is in development.
Disney also said that production has begun on "Andor", featuring Diego Luna as the character he played in "Rogue One: A Star Wars Story".
According to their announcements, there are 10 other series that will be introduced on the Disney+ channel.
Lando Calrissian will return in what Disney has labelled a brand-new "event series", Lando.
Despite Kathleen Kennedy being at the helm of Lucasfilm, men have dominated the director's chair throughout the theatrical history of Star Wars.
A Japanese anime Star Wars series is in the works. Perhaps they may even tell us how Gorge, the character from The Mandalorian whom we all know as Baby Yoda, survived. Disney says this mystery thriller will "take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era".
While a premiere date for the series is still far away, Kennedy did confirm that it will begin shooting in March 2021. "They hint at it in the Solo movie and stuff like that".
Throw in Patty Jenkins and we're a long way from the 2016 Rogue One press conference where Kennedy testily insisted she couldn't find any female directors worthy of helming a blockbuster franchise. "His enormous talent and sense of humour will ensure that audiences are in for an unforgettable ride".
