Bob Iger Announces Multiple New Star Wars Shows for Upcoming Disney Streaming Service

Published

on

Yesterday Lucasfilm reported that a new series of Star Wars films would be coming, written and produced by Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss. Now Bob Iger has made his own announcement concerning the upcoming Disney streaming service, with the announcement of more than one new Star Wars shows currently being planned by Lucasfilm. The news came from a Disney earnings call for the first quarter of the fiscal year.

“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 entities that is developing that for us. Because the deal isn’t completely closed, we can’t be specific about that,” he said during an earnings call Tuesday. “I think you’ll find the level of talent … on the television front will be rather significant as well.”

Ben Fritz from the Wall Street Journal indicated that Iger said the talent level on these projects would be rather significant.

So what all does this mean? I would guess that in addition to a new animated show coming to Disney XD after the departure of Star Wars Rebels, that we will finally get to see that long talked about live action Star Wars show on this service. We might also see another animated show or two, and might even see Star Wars Detours in some form on the service. We could also see a fan related show or two. Given the success of The Star Wars Show on Youtube, Disney might have plans to port something similar over to their streaming service.

Of course all of this is conjecture on our part, until something official is announced. What are you interested in seeing on the streaming service? Let us know on our various social media sites. Also check out the trailer for Star Wars Detours, that has been sitting on a shelf for half a decade now.

LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures Season 2

“LEGO Star Wars: The Freemaker Adventures,” the Emmy®-nominated animated television series on Disney XD, is set between Stars Wars: The Empire Strikes Back and Star Wars: Return of the Jedi and stars three siblings who scour the galaxy for useful debris that they use to build new vehicles of their own design.

When Rowan has visions of an ancient and powerful Jedi starship called The Arrowhead, he and his family set out on an epic quest to rebuild it so they can turn the tide of battle for the Rebellion. Together, they explore new worlds, meet new characters and Star Wars icons, and have unforgettable adventures.

Kevin Kiner Finishes Score for Star Wars Rebels

Published

on

In a bit of sad news, it seems as if the reality of Star Wars Rebels wrapping up is starting to sink in. Composer Kevin Kiner has finished scoring the last half of Star Wars Rebels season 4. Executive Producer Dave Filoni tweeted an image of the orchestra playing their final notes for the score, with a nice loth-cat shadow appearing in the front.

Only a few episodes are left in season 4, that should wrap up the Star Wars Rebels storyline. Hopefully some of our favorite Rebels survive the upcoming episodes. We do know that Hera and Chopper make it through because of their appearance/mention in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
