New Female-Centric Star Wars Series In Development At Disney+

A new Star Wars series is currently in the works at Disney+ and this time, it’ll be focused on telling the stories of the women in a galaxy far, far away.

First reported by Variety, the upcoming series will be helmed by Leslye Headland, the co-creator, showrunner, and executive producer of Netflix’s highly-acclaimed TV series, Russian Doll.

Headland will be attached as showrunner and writer for the new series.

Most of the series’ plot and settings are currently still under wraps but Variety reports that the show will be “a female-centric series that takes place in a different part of the Star Wars timeline than other projects”. Whatever that means remains to be seen.

Disney+ is currently home to The Mandalorian, with a second season to be released later this year. Two other Star Wars series, one centring around Ewan McGregor’s Obi-Wan Kenobi, and another on Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor, are currently in development. 

Disney’s Bob Iger had previously announced that they will be taking a break from producing Star Wars movies in lieu of TV series, which is a fairly smart move to make considering how much better received The Mandalorian was compared to Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the latest film in the Star Wars franchise. 

No release date, or casting, has been announced for the female-centric Star Wars series yet, but these are still early days.
