While we do not know what Star Wars tales might be advised on the large display sooner or later, Disney CEO Bob Iger has hinted at what the way forward for the franchise might probably embrace. With the primary season of The Mandalorian ending on the Disney+ streaming service, it is completely attainable it or any of the service’s upcoming Star Wars choices might wind up turning into films.
“I don’t look at it as just television, I look at it as an extension of Star Wars storytelling,” Iger mentioned throughout an look on The Star Wars Show [through Slashfilm]. “What Disney+ has given us the ability to do is to do just that, is to bring Star Wars to people in new ways, and to bring new Star Wars to people. It’s not the same places or the same characters. Just look at Mandalorian. While, obviously, there’s a lot shared, there’s a lot that’s really fresh, and I love that.”
And whereas Disney+ is permitting new corners of the Star Wars galaxy to be explored, Iger believes it could be straightforward to take these TV tales and proceed them on film–or vice-versa. “I love the ability to really be agnostic in terms of what platform it’s being made for,” he defined. “And so it could be, down the road, that a TV show becomes a movie and a movie becomes a TV series. I’m not making any announcements here or not, but I think it’s important for us to be agnostic.”
As beforehand revealed, the second season of The Mandalorian began filming earlier than Season 1 premiered. That will debut in fall 2020, with an Obi-Wan Kenobi standalone sequence following. Based on what Iger is saying, although, both of those shows–or any of the others coming within the future– might be continued as movies. With the Skywalker Saga over after Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, maybe now’s the time to provide Baby Yoda his personal nine-movie sequence.
