Disney is reportedly looking to expand its live-action Star Wars shows even further. According to LRM Online, Dave Filoni has been tapped to oversee a connected universe of series with a central storyline.
Due to the success of The Mandalorian, Disney is planning on using Disney+ to expand its Star Wars content. This new report claims that the connected universe will involve several shows, all focused on one central plotline. LRM Online stated one big inspiration was Game of Thrones, but instead of making one epic show, each family had their own.
The connected universe will be comprised of several series, including The Mandalorian, a live-action Ahsoka Tano series, a live-action Boba Fett series, a live-action Ezra Bridger/Grand Admiral Thrawn series and an unannounced show featuring a new character. It was previously reported that a live-action Ahsoka Tano show was in early development soon after it was announced she would appear in The Mandalorian season 2; similarly, a Boba Fett series was also rumored. Meanwhile, there has been no announcement of an Ezra Bridger/Grand Admiral Thrawn show; however, it has been reported that Disney was in the process of casting live-action versions of each character.
Many fans had assumed that with all the recent reports of fan-favorite characters appearing in The Mandalorian season 2, Disney must have plans for them. Based on this information, it seems The Mandalorian Season 2 could be laying the groundwork for this new connected universe of live-action series sooner rather than later.
