If today’s announcement that Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B Weiss are creating a series of Star Wars films heralded insufficient new Star Wars projects for you personally, we’ve got fantastic news: there is far more.
In an earnings contact today, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the studio is “developing not just one particular, but some Star Wars series particularly for the Disney direct to customer app” – and we’re close to hearing who’s behind no less than one of them.
“We’ve talked about that and we’re close to being able to reveal at least on the list of entities that is definitely developing that for us. Mainly because the deal isn’t fully closed, we can not be particular about that,” he mentioned. “I feel you’ll find the degree of talent around the television front will likely be rather significant also.” Maybe Bryan Fuller has discovered an additional project to pull out of!
The series will be developed specifically for Disney’s incoming in-house content streaming service and app launching in late 2019 – and themselves represent a mere sliver on the material inside the functions for the service. It is not clear whether all the series will probably be live-action, but no less than one of them will probably be, setting it apart from pre-existing series The Clone Wars and Rebels.
Iger also explained a bit a lot more about Benioff and Weiss’ film series. The duo were solely interested in functioning on feature films, he stated, with no tv series proposed in their apparently lengthy talks. Their big-screen series – referred to by Iger as “a number of films” and by the Hollywood Reporter as a trilogy – will concentrate on “a point in time in the Star Wars mythology,” which even though about as vague a statement as a single could make, all but confirms the films is going to be narratively disconnected in the main Skywalker saga (in contrast to Rogue One particular and Solo, which feed straight into it). Fans will probably shout “Old Republic” or “Mandalorian Wars” or God support me, “Darth Plagueis,” but hopefully there is one thing extra original inside the operates.
THR also notes that Benioff and Weiss’ Star Wars commitments clash straight with their proposed Confederate series for HBO. Offered the huge public backlash against that show’s pretty concept, it is plausible it might have been straight-up cancelled. That’s unconfirmed, naturally, but I know lots of individuals who’d be pleased if it was.
