    We already know Disney and Lucasfilm are working on two new live-action Star Wars shows. The Mandalorian is expected to hit Disney+ later this year, and a Rogue One prequel series focusing on Diego Luna’s character Cassian Andor is also in the works. But now a character who fans have long wanted to see in spin-off story might be headed to Disney’s streaming service as well.

    A new rumor floating around says an Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series might be in the works for Disney+, and it’s a “top priority” for the House of Mouse.

    I said that they can make these things for their streaming service. They don't have to be all theatrical movies.

    I talked to my friend who works at Disney and he's working on a Monsters Inc show for D+ and he thinks they are planning on making most or all of the Disney catalog available on D+.

    So hopefully all those old classic live action movies will show up.

    Smart move to pull McGregor back in by giving him some episodes to direct.

    Very glad to see this happening. We'll get word from Disney next week at D23. This is the one project that I have always wanted to see made.

    Question about the Deadline article: Do we think that the Mandalorian came out of the wreckage of the Boba Fett movie? I thought they were separate projects.

    My GUESS is that they might have pulled a few ideas that were cool from the Boba Fett movie for The Mandalorian. Sorta like how they took the very early concept drawing of Darth Maul that they spitballed for The Phantom Menace and ended up using it as the Sith witches for The Clone Wars.

    I still think this thread belongs in Streaming not TV...

    This is where we discuss things like Stranger Things, Star Trek: Discovery, Star Trek: Picard, the Mandalorian, the Marvel Disney+ shows... As time goes on, all event TV shows seem to be made for streaming, and the end of broadcast and cable is nigh. I'd be happy leaving this where it is.

    Agreed. By my count there isn't a single discussion thread in that subforum (which I admit I didn't even know existed until these posts).

    I think of the whole Media section as being about purchased media, so the Streaming and Digital Media forum is about digital copies bundled with discs and digital purchases from Vudu, iTunes, Amazon, etc.

    On the other hand, I think of the subscription streaming services (Netflix, Hulu, Disney+, CBS All Access, Prime Video, etc.) as being little different than a cable or satellite subscription.

    I disagree as we talk about other streaming shows in this forum. I see this as no different than those other shows like Hanna, The Boys and Stranger Things.
