Disney+ is quickly becoming must-have for Star Wars fans. With season two of The Mandalorian set for an October release and the Cassian Andor Rogue One spinoff in the works, the streaming service will continue to expand the universe. As first reported by Variety, a new live-action Star Wars series is in development with Netflix’s Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland leading the charge.
While details on the series remain scarce, the initial report claims the series will be female-centric series and take place in a currently unknown part of the Star Wars timeline. Headland will serve as the show’s writer and showrunner.
Over the last few months, there have been plenty of rumors about new Star Wars projects in the works at Disney+. Along with the currently stalled Obi-Wan Kenobi series, shows focusing on heroes like Ahsoka Tano and Dr. Aphra are rumored as well. Perhaps Headland will take the reigns to one of those projects. With Daredevil star Rosario Dawson attached to play the role of Ahsoka Tano in The Mandalorian season two, Disney+ will likely want to fast track that character to a starring role.
The Headland-created series Russian Doll earned praise from both fans and critics alike. Additionally, the series was nominated for 13 Emmy Awards, ultimately winning three. Moreover, the filmmaker has directed films like Sleeping With Other People and Bachelorette.
