If today’s announcement that Game of Thrones’ David Benioff and D.B Weiss are producing a series of Star Wars films heralded insufficient new Star Wars projects for you, we’ve got excellent news: there is additional.
In an earnings contact now, Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that the studio is “developing not just a single, but several Star Wars series particularly for the Disney direct to customer app” – and we’re close to hearing who’s behind at the least one of them.
“We’ve talked about that and we’re close to being able to reveal at the very least among the entities that’s building that for us. Due to the fact the deal is not fully closed, we can not be certain about that,” he mentioned. “I consider you will discover the amount of talent on the tv front will be rather important at the same time.” Possibly Bryan Fuller has discovered yet another project to pull out of!
The series is going to be created especially for Disney’s incoming in-house content material streaming service and app launching in late 2019 – and themselves represent a mere sliver on the material inside the performs for the service. It is not clear regardless of whether each of the series might be live-action, but no less than one of them are going to be, setting it apart from pre-existing series The Clone Wars and Rebels.
Iger also explained somewhat more about Benioff and Weiss’ film series. The duo had been solely keen on functioning on feature films, he mentioned, with no television series proposed in their apparently lengthy talks. Their big-screen series – referred to by Iger as “a quantity of films” and by the Hollywood Reporter as a trilogy – will focus on “a point in time within the Star Wars mythology,” which whilst about as vague a statement as one particular could make, all but confirms the films might be narratively disconnected from the principal Skywalker saga (as opposed to Rogue One and Solo, which feed directly into it). Fans will probably shout “Old Republic” or “Mandalorian Wars” or God aid me, “Darth Plagueis,” but hopefully there is a thing much more original inside the performs.
THR also notes that Benioff and Weiss’ Star Wars commitments clash straight with their proposed Confederate series for HBO. Offered the massive public backlash against that show’s incredibly concept, it is plausible it may happen to be straight-up cancelled. That’s unconfirmed, not surprisingly, but I know plenty of people who’d be pleased if it was.
