A Female Centered ‘Star Wars’ Series is Headed for Disney+





A new Star Wars spin-off series is in the works at Disney+ with the main character focus centered around female leads. The series is set to be spearheaded by Leslye Headland who was co-creator of the Netflix series Russian Doll. There are no clues to what the plot of the show will be since Headland is reportedly assembling a writing team and the storyline is taking shape as we speak.

The setting is reported to be placed in the same galaxy far far away but different a part of the Star Wars timeline than other films and series. With the show still in the very early stages and no end in sight to the coronavirus pandemic, there’s no telling when production will begin, let alone a series release date.

While there’s always been a strong female presence in the Star Wars films, some fans criticized the latest addition to the franchise for not giving enough screen time to its female characters.

This news of a new Star Wars series comes after Disney+ recently confirmed season 3 of The Mandalorian is in preproduction ahead of its season 2 launch this fall. The Star Wars films and original series have been a huge part of the success of Disney+ as a streaming service, and it looks like the Mouse House has no intention of slowing down on capitalizing on the franchise.
