The Star Wars live-action series has been something of legend for almost a decade now. The ever elusive "Star Wars: Underworld" series was a project George Lucas himself attempted to make a reality in the years following the release of Revenge Of The Sith, but sadly it never came to be. Now, since Disney's acquisition of Lucasfilm, rumors and speculation have run rampant that Star Wars would be coming to the small screen, or it's ever popular counterpart Netflix. Today the rumors heated up when Cinelinx revealed a report claiming that three brand new live-action series could be headed to Netflix very soon. Here's what they had to say:
"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."
They further sight all of the Emmy nominations Netflix shows have been garnering recently(a total of 34 this year) and the fact that Lucasfilm already has a history with Netflix from the release of the Star Wars: The Clone Wars: Lost Missions on the streaming service last year. In the past we've heard rumors that ABC may be a platform to host Star Wars content, similarly to Marvel's Agents Of S.H.I.E.L.D. While that's still possible, on-demand platforms are becoming more and more popular all the time, which could lead Netflix to become Disney's first choice for a place to launch their new Star Wars series.
