Did you hear the rumors? On Wednesday, Variety reported that “Russian Doll” co-creator and showrunner Leslye Headland had signed a deal to create a “female-centric” Star Wars series for Disney+. The Hollywood Reporter and Deadline Hollywood reached out to their own sources, and reported that they were hearing the same thing – although Deadline added that it would action focused and with martial arts elements, and happen in an “alternate” timeline (as opposed to the “different” timeline reported by Variety and THR, but likely meaning the same thing – not happening in the time period of the Skywalker Saga movies).
Well, as it turns out, I’ve had some additional information about this shared with me, and I’ll share that with you on today’s episode! I’ve also looked back at the main Star Wars rumor/leak/spoiler sites I trust to see what kind of live-action series possibilities they’ve posted, to add to the conversation. Punch it!
It would be so cool to get a live action Ashoka Tano series on Disney+.
Although I must say if it would be doctor Aphra, I would also be fine with that. Any new Star Wars content we get is good. 🙂
Now I hope that Disney+ is rolled out soon in Belgium so I can see the last season of “The Clone Wars”… Although I could do like I did with “The Mandalorian”… I know it’s wrong but I am glad I did it otherwise I would have been spoiled so badly with baby Yoda being all over Social Media…
I am hungering for Disney+… It sure would also help to entertain my kids a bit more in these times of confinement. 😉
Stay safe Allen and thanks for continuing this great podcast.
Ugh, I just looked, and all I see is that Disney+ won’t be available in Belgium until summer 2020. Hang in there….
