This will give the Disney+ live action Star Wars Shows more of a chance to thrive

While there will not be any more Star Wars films released until 2022, one thing that fans will have to look forward to is the release of The Mandalorian, which is an upcoming Disney+ live-action Star Wars series set to be released in November 2019.

The Mandalorian is set to take place five years after the events of Return of the Jedi and the fall of the empire, and will follow a lone gunfighter, played by Pedro Pascal in the outer reaches of the galaxy.

This will not be the only live-action Star Wars series coming to Disney+, as CEO Bob Iger confirmed that a Rogue One prequel series and a third mystery series are currently in development.

With no new Star Wars movies set to be released for several years, Star Wars fans who were disappointed by the movie hiatus will likely turn to these live-action shows to help satisfy their fandom.

If these shows are successful, then many fans who have previously felt burned by the past few movies may return to the franchise to enjoy these shows, and it is in Disney’s best interests to make these shows a good as possible, as they intend them to be their flagship programming for the launch of Disney+.

With the lack of movies being released during that time, these shows will be displayed more prominently to Star Wars fans, and if they are received positively, it would in turn lead to more getting created, meaning more of a variety of stories being told in the galaxy far far away.
