The Star Wars live-action TV show lives once more!


A live-action Star Wars TV show has been talked about for years. They have been doing great things with the animated Star Wars shows, but now that Disney are launching their own streaming service (which will feature all their films) they are going to finally make the live-action show.

Disney Company chairman and CEO Bob Iger spoke about the new show during a quarterly earnings call with investors, but that’s all he said about it. There is no word on plot, characters or anything else. We recently heard that Rian Johnson is working on a new Star Wars movie trilogy so it is all go in a galaxy far, far away.

As this has been on and off so many times I won’t be getting excited about it until I hear a few more details about it.

However, that is not the only new show they are working on. There will also be one based on the 2001 Pixar film Monster, Inc. as well as one based on the Disney Channel film series High School Musical.

The new Disney-branded service will become the exclusive home in the U.S. for subscription-video-on-demand viewing of the newest live action and animated movies from Disney and Pixar, beginning with the 2019 theatrical slate, which includes Toy Story 4, the sequel to Frozen, and The Lion King from Disney live-action, along with other highly-anticipated movies. Disney will also make a significant investment in an annual slate of original movies, TV shows, short-form content and other Disney-branded exclusives for the service. Additionally, the service will feature a vast collection of library content, including Disney and Pixar movies and Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD television programming. All told, around 500 films from the Disney library will be present on the service along with nearly 7,000 episodes of Disney television.

Having a live-action Star Wars show on that service will definitely help bring in a wider audience. CBS All Access had lots of subscribers due to Star Trek: Discovery so imagine the power of a new Star Wars series!

The streaming service will launch in 2019.

What would you like to see in the new show? Should it be set in the timeline of the main films or should they go way back to the Old Republic?
