As Star Wars Rebels ends, Disney is taking the TV franchise lightyears ahead. The mind behind Disney streaming’s live-action Star Wars TV series is none other than Jon Favreau, who will write and produce.
As Star Wars Rebels comes to a close, Disney may have tipped its hand to the next generation of Star Wars TV. Suspicious trademarks for the name Star Wars Resistance already have fans abuzz with possibilities for the new series coming to Disney streaming.
Even as Disney’s independent streaming service will launch in fall 2019, the TV side is already taking shape. Not only do we have a sense of what budget the Star Wars TV series and its companions will have (hint: dragon-sized), but we also know The Defenders are safe at Netflix.
