Star Wars fans have nothing to fear as the three-year movie hiatus begins after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker. Fortunately for us, there will be other projects from a galaxy far, far away coming our way soon, in the form of television.
After The Rise of Skywalker finishes up the Skywalker saga, Lucasfilm will take a break from releasing any more blockbuster films until Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and Dan Weiss release their first film in 2022. But before that, we'll be getting around three television series on Disney+.
On top of the two previously announced shows, Disney CEO Bob Iger has just revealed there will likely be a third. According to ComicBook.com, new information regarding a possible addition was discussed during the most recent Disney investors call.
"...In the interim we are producing two Star Wars live-action series for Disney+: one of them is called 'The Mandalorian', which being supervised by Jon Favreau, and the other one is a bit of a prequel to 'Rogue One,'" Iger said. "And my guess is there will probably be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+ (meaning a Star Wars series), before we release the next film."
The Mandalorian is said to follow the titular warrior in the days after the fall of the Empire, and the Rogue One prequel series will follow Cassian Andor in a "spy thriller."
After Disney+ debuts on Nov. 12, we'll be eagerly waiting for Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker to hit theaters on Dec. 20.
