A new “Star Wars” series could look a lot different.
Lesley Headland, co-creator of Netflix’s “Russian Doll”, is behind a possible female-focused take on the beloved stories from a galaxy far, far away.
According to Deadline, the plot of the new tale, made for Disney+, is still being kept under wraps but the action/thriller will take place in the “Star Wars” universe.
The upcoming series isn’t the first “Star Wars”-based show for Disney+. Last year’s “The Mandalorian”, created by Jon Favreau, was a mega-hit with both longtime fans and those just discovering the “Star Wars” universe – it also introduced the viral Baby Yoda.
Disney+ is also working on an Obi-Wan Kenobi-centred series starring Ewan McGregor, who will reprise his role from the prequel trilogy. Plus, they’re introducing a “Rogue One” series with Diego Luna returning to his role as rebel Cassian Andor.
