Hot on the heels of the announcement earlier today that the “Game of Thrones” creators are developing a new series of “Star Wars” films, Disney CEO Bob Iger has revealed that multiple “Star Wars” TV shows are currently in development for Disney’s upcoming streaming service.
Iger revealed back in November that one live-action Star Wars series was currently in the works, but his statement today confirms several more are in the works:
“We are developing not just one, but a few Star Wars series specifically for the Disney direct to consumer app. We’ve mentioned that and we are close to being able to reveal at least one of the interties that is developing that for us. Because the deal isn’t completely closed, we can’t be specific about that…I think you’ll find the level of talent…on the television front will be rather significant as well.”
It’s not clear how many of these will be live-action. Disney is also developing TV adaptations of “Monsters Inc.,” “High School Musical” and an original series from Marvel for the service which is expected to launch in 2019.
