When Disney announced its upcoming new streaming service, called Disney Play, Disney CEO Bob Iger had said the company was going to invest heavily in its new streaming service in both time and money. A big part of this was the creation of original content that included its new Star Wars series. In that sense, it looks like Iger was a man of his word as it has been reported that one of the streaming service’s Star Wars series is tentatively set to begin production, perhaps as early as the coming week.
The yet to be named series is said to begin filming next week in what is being referred to as a “coastal location.” This is based on a story on the fan base site: Making Star Wars. The site also included a handful of pictures from the set, reaffirming the sandy locale for the initial filming.
The new television series is being written and directed by Iron Man alum Jon Favreau, who can clearly be seen in a few of the the set pictures (although from a distance). In addition to the set pictures, Making Star Wars (who apparently are very resourceful people) also released some possible plot details. The show is set to follow the lives of Madalorians after the fall of the Empire. That timeline puts the show nearly seven years after the events of Return of the Jedi.
Does the beginning of production for the new Star Wars series get you excited for Disney’s new Streaming Service? Can Jon Favreau deliver the same magic to Star Wars that he brought to Marvel’s Iron Man? Time will tell but your chance to talk about it is now at GVNation.
