Rumor Has Headland Heading New ‘Star Wars’ Series

Back in February then (and maybe still) Disney CEO Bob Iger said that while the company will continue to produce both feature films and streaming series, streaming series will be the focus for the next few years. Well, it looks like there is another Star Wars streaming series in the works being reported by the outlet Variety.

The rumored series is said to be headed by Leslye Headland, who co-created the Netflix series Russian Doll and scripted and directed the film Bachelorette. Not much is known about the new series, but Variety’s sources say that it will be a female-centric series that takes place in a “different part of the Star Wars timeline”. Headland will act as showrunner and a writer for the series. The show is said to be currently staffing up.

It is unknown if this is related to recent rumors about Rosario Dawson being cast as Ahsoka Tano, or the rumor about a series featuring the comic character Doctor Aphra, but the bit about the different part of the timeline puts some doubt on those rumors. At any rate, it will be a welcome addition to the existing ones in the pipeline including the already running The Mandalorian, and the upcoming Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi series…
