Rumors are surfacing again that a live-action Star Wars series will soon be in development. This time, the thought is that the series would be created for viewing on Netflix. The website Cinelinx says:
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.
Reasons cited for the partnership include 34 Emmy nominations that Netflix shows have received this year, as well as the fact that Lucasfilm already has Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lost Missions featured on Netflix.
