Disney+ is up and running and fans all over the world have their eyes glued to the screen for every episode of the first live-action Star Wars series The Mandalorian. With a plethora of characters at their disposal, the creative powers-that-be are eager to produce even more Star Wars content for the streaming platform. A new rumor stemming from Jeremy Conrad’s Star Wars Unity, suggests that Disney+ is developing a project featuring Doctor Aphra, a fan-favorite character from Star Wars comics, in some capacity.
However, take this rumor with a grain of salt. It is not currently known if Doctor Aphra is getting her own series or if she will simply appear in a future project. Conrad has heard that the character “might” appear in the future.
Doctor Aphra is “a criminal archaeologist with expert knowledge of droid and weapons technologies. However, she has a particular interest in ancient weapons and Jedi artifacts.” Aphra first appeared in 2015’s Star Wars: Darth Vader comic series. Shortly after, she received her own solo run in 2016.
This summer, Disney CEO Bob Iger confirmed that the studio has a number of Star Wars series in development. Disney+ is currently developing two series starring Ewan McGregor as Obi-Wan Kenobi and Diego Luna as Cassian Andor. Additionally, a Solo spinoff series is also rumored to be in development. If the first three episodes of The Mandalorian are any indication fans are in for a wild ride.
