During Disney’s earnings call on Tuesday, Bob Iger teased that spin-offs with characters from The Mandalorian are being considered.
The Mandalorian marked a new era in Star Wars due to it being the first ever live-action series in the franchise’s storied history. Various other Star Wars live-action shows are also in development at the moment such as ones centered on Cassian Andor and Obi-Wan Kenobi. A second season of The Mandalorian is also already filming, but Disney CEO Bob Iger has teased that more might spawn from the series.
Disney chairman Alan Horn has said in the past that The Mandalorian series could make the jump to the big screen. Bob Iger has also said that Star Wars will be taking a break from theaters until 2022 with the focus now on television. On Tuesday, Bob Iger revealed during an earnings call that they are considering television spin-offs based on characters in The Mandalorian:
“With The Mandalorian season 2 coming in October, and then more coming from The Mandalorian thereafter, including the possibility of – infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own direction in terms of series.”
