While most fans weren’t happy with the sequel trilogy (Luke Skywalker especially), Disney+‘s Star Wars content has been well received. With loads of new shows coming to the service, Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy promises that there is a story for everyone in a galaxy far, far away.
Warning! Spoilers ahead for The Mandalorian Season 2 finale!
Luke Skywalker Series
FandomWire can exclusively reveal that Lucasfilm and Disney+ are in the early stages of developing a Luke Skywalker series set around the time era of The Mandalorian! Having been kept a secret in The Mandalorian’s second season finale, Mark Hamill surprised fans with a de-aged look of the character. No word on who is set to direct or produce but as we said this project is in early development.
For all these reports, it’s important to stress that “In-Development” means teams connected to Lucasfilm are prepping and writing the following projects. It does not guarantee they will all make it to air.
Sebastian Stan as Luke Skywalker?
There are talks being held on if Mark Hamill should return with the de-ageing technology, but right now, the studio is leaning towards a recast due to the expense and current imperfections of the technology. Falcon and the Winter Soldier star Sebastian Stan is one name being considered for the role of the iconic Jedi. That casting would be sure to make fans very happy. Though it may be a recast, we’re told Mark Hamill is more than willing to let Sebastian Stan play his character. We’ll see what happens as things develop.
Other shows that are coming to Disney+ is the limited Obi-Wan Kenobi series, the High Republic show The Acolyte, the Rogue One prequel show Andor, and two Mandalorian spin-offs, Ahsoka and Rangers of the New Republic.
