Word is that the success Disney is having with Marvel on Netflix is about to spill over into the world of Star Wars.
Sources related to MakingStarwars, say that the house of mouse is now in discussions to bring the Jedis over to the online video service. The best/ scariest part is that they aren’t just talking about a show, they are talking about THREE shows!
There had been rumors that Disney would try to launch a series on ABC, but the lackluster ratings performance of Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. has probably made that less economically viable. Meanwhile, Netflix is going like gangbusters for them.
Lucas has been teasing a live action series since 2009, with rumors that he’s already got over 100 scripts written for a bounty hunter series. Sadly, the show was never made because they said it was too expensive.
and Rebels is, I would love to see what they could do with a live-action Star Wars show.
