With Disney+ gearing up to launch later this year, Disney is working hard to generate high profile exclusive content to flesh it out. We already know The Mandalorian is coming to service from the great John Favreau. But there apparently more Disney+ Star Wars shows coming too which will focus on some of the series’ most iconic characters.
We Got This Covered issued a report a couple of days ago which indicated that two of the current trilogy’s most iconic characters will be getting a couple of Disney+ Star Wars shows. The outlet has sources citing that both John Boyega’s Finn and Oscar Isaac’s Finn Poe Dameron will get series on the streaming service.
The two Disney+ Star Wars shows are in the earliest stages of production with nothing formally written up as of yet. So it would be pure speculation as to what a Finn or Poe series would revolve around. We do get to see a fair amount of the latter though in Disney’s new animated series, Star Wars Resistance.
According to We Got This Covered, Finn and Poe wouldn’t be the only new Disney+ Star Wars shows being added to the slate. There’s also reported a pair of series following characters from Solo: A Star Wars Story in the young Lando Calrissian and Solo’s childhood friend, Qi’Ra.
Young Lando was portrayed excellently in Solo by Donald Glover. And Qi’Ra was played by Game of Thrones’ Mother of Dragons herself, Emilia Clarke. But just as with Boyega and Isaac, there’s no confirmation as to any of this talent returning for these Disney+ Star Wars shows.
These Disney+ Star Wars shows could take any form at this point. They could be high budget limited runs just as the studio is doing with some the Marvel Cinematic Universe, which offers a larger possibility of the original actors returning. Or they could take on an animated form and have the actors returning to voice their roles.
We’ll have to get more details from Disney before we can surmise anything further. When they do a full unveiling later this year, they’ll certainly be using these potential Disney+ Star Wars shows as reasons to subscribe. Expect more details then.
