Disney’s Upcoming Live Action ‘Star Wars’ Series To Cost 100 Million Dollars


With Disney’s upcoming new streaming service comes new shows and films.

Currently there is a 10 episode Star Wars series planned for the new service directed by Jon Favreau. The new show will be live-action and is expected to cost about 100 million dollars, for about 10 million an episode, making it one of the most expensive shows out there.  Of course Disney is going to want to push more Star Wars shows as it’s banking heavily on the upcoming Star Wars: Galaxy’s Edge expansions to both US theme parks. When it comes to Star Wars synergy is key.

This new, still untitled series, will take place seven years after Return of the Jedi.

This will not be the only new series coming to the new service. It’s been reported that there will be spin offs of other popular movies like High School Musical and Monster’s Inc. There may also be new shows for The Muppets and Marvel.  We already know they want to do a final season of the Star Wars: Clone Wars.

At least nine new movies are also coming to the service. That’s where the live-action versions of The Sword in the Stone and Lady and the Tramp are headed. Noelle, which was to get a theatrical release is now being put on the streaming service slate as well. There’s also been rumors swirling that some of the “cancelled” theatrical release Star Wars films might still be created for the streaming service. As well as reports that a remake of the 1980’s Three Men and a Baby movie might be coming too. Hollywood loves remakes and reboots.

Of course Disney is going to use their existing catalog of movies and television shows for the network.

Disney’s new streaming service is expected to launch next year. No official word on title or price yet. But it’s being reported that they want to keep it “substantially cheaper” than a Netfilx subscription.

Hopefully we will get more information later this week. They might make some announcements later on Thursday.
