After The Mandalorian, Disney + could develop a series around a famous Jedi
For his first series after Star Wars, Disney + has bet on a new head with The Mandalorian. But a new series could deal with a Jedi known.
The offensive Disney + is well and truly launched. While the service of SVoD should be made available to the public current 2019, it is increasingly obvious that the giant with big ears is a lot of emphasis on the Star Wars universe to counter-attack Netflix and other platforms in the market of SVoD.
With 100 million dollar budget for ten episodes, The Mandalorian is the first series of the universe created by George Lucas have been announced (and its development is making great strides). After the announcement of several animated series like The Clone Wars, Star Wars News Net announced that Mickey would have to set his sights on one of the greatest Jedi of the universe : Obi-Wan Kenobi.
Appeared for the first time in the original trilogy in the guise of Alec Guinness, the second trilogy has seen Ewan McGregor take the lightsaber to embody his version of the young. And if these last years a movie spin-off had been considered, the failure of Solo : A Star Wars Story has changed the game (and froze all the projects and spin-offs).
Finally, it would seem that developing a limited series around the Jedi is less risky for Lucasfilm and Disney ” to make a film. Thus, Obi-Wan Kenobi could be the star of a limited series of 6 episodes.
The project has not yet been confirmed, and we do not know, therefore, not the identity of the person who will succeed Ewan McGregor and Alec Guinness, but as the first has never hidden his desire to resume the costume, there may be a chance to see it come back.
In short, the series projects that start to pile up, the trilogy ahead of David Benioff and DB Weiss, one of Rian Johnson and Star Wars Episode IX, the expanded universe created by George Lucas has not finished to be talked about.
