In addition to The Mandalorian and the series based on Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi, the OTT platform is already working on a new project led by a female character and developed by Lesley Headland, co-creator of Russian Doll.
Following on Bob Iger’s promise from a few months back, the future of Star Wars is on TV. And confirming its plans, Disney is working on a new series based on the franchise.
According to the local press, Disney+ is developing the series with Lesley Headland, co-creator of Russian Doll.
In this case, the project will star a female character and will have elements of thriller and martial arts. In addition, it will be set in a different time than the film franchise.
This still untitled series joins The Mandalorian, already released, renewed and with a third season already in development, as well as the projects based on the characters of Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi.
In total, Star Wars will have at least four original series on Disney +.
In addition to Russian Doll, Headland has credits as a screenwriter and director for the movie Sleeping With Other People, while also directing episodes of SMILF, Heathers, and Blunt Talk.
