With the massive success of The Mandalorian on Disney Plus, there is a lot of potential for other Star Wars characters to get their own series.

In the aftermath of the release of The Mandalorian in 2019 and its massive success, Star Wars fans have been rampant with speculation regarding the future of live-action Star Wars shows.

With Star Wars being one of the flagship franchises for Disney and their Disney Plus streaming service, fans should easily expect more and more shows to be released going forward.

Naturally, with Star Wars having a massive fan base and a wealth of material to base stories on, many fans are hopeful that some of their favorite characters could get their own spin-off shows in the near future. While The Mandalorian revolves around original characters who debut in the show, there are many other characters from other Star Wars media who are prime candidates to receive a spin-off themselves.

Back in late 2020, many fan-favorite characters from the franchise have been confirmed to be getting their own series, taking place during various different points in the Star Wars timeline, such as Ahsoka, Obi-Wan Kenobi, and Boba Fett, but there are plenty more fans would like to see.

There are literally hundreds of characters to choose from, with fan-favorites from the original, prequel, and sequel Trilogies all being likely candidates, as well as those from the Star Wars video games and legends material.

Please note, this upcoming list is in no particular order, but is simply a computation of Star Wars characters who I feel could helm their own live-action series.

Without further delay, let’s list off 25 Star Wars characters fans want to see get their own spin-off show.
