Could Netflix have three Star Wars shows in the pipeline?

Could Netflix be set to bring three Star Wars series to our screens? Oh, we hope so…

And yes, that said three.

So, here’s the rumour: “Disney is looking to continue their partnership with Netflix for their Star Wars shows.  Yes, I said shows.  I’ve heard there’s talk of potentially three different live-action shows for Netflix, in much the same way Marvel has deals in place for Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, etc.  

“Because of the extreme success of Daredevil, Netflix is working with Disney on the cheap and more than happy to continue their relationship.  For Lucasfilm this makes a lot of sense, as they want to keep the cinematic feel of the movies going with the TV shows.  Netflix allows for such a presentation much better than network television, while also giving them a chance to explore stories and characters which otherwise might not be a good fit somewhere else.”

Right, so we can see this being true. We know that Disney/Marvel have a relationship with Netflix because we’re all still talking about how cool Daredevil is. And we know Netflix got exclusive rights on the Clone Wars: The Lost Missions, so it’s not as if it’s a stretch to see these companies coming together.

We also know that George Lucas had big plans for a series called Star Wars: Underworld a few years back, but had to quit because of budgetary worries. And we know that apparently aprox 100 episodes were penned so it’s not that much of a stretch to see all these things coming together either.

So, three Star Wars TV shows. Would you all tune in? Let us know…

Marc is a self-confessed nerd. Ever since seeing Star Wars for the first time around 1979 he’s been an unapologetic fan of the Wars and still believes, with Clone Wars and now Underworld, we are yet to see the best Star Wars. He’s a dad of two who now doesn’t have the time (or money) to collect the amount of toys, comics, movies and books he once did, much to the relief of his long-suffering wife. In the real world he’s a graphic designer. He started Following the Nerd because he was tired of searching a million sites every day for all the best news that he loves and decided to create one place where you can go to get the whole lot. Secretly he longs to be sitting in the cockpit of his YT-1300 Corellian Transport ship with his co-pilot Chewie, roaming the universe, waiting for his next big adventure, but feels just at home watching cartoons with his kids….
