New Star Wars TV Show Possibly in the Works for Disney+

A new Star Wars live-action TV show may already be in the works for Disney+! And it’s not one you might expect. The new show is said to be based on the Marvel Comics character Doctor Aphra.

For those unfamiliar with the Star Wars Marvel comics, Doctor Aphra originates in the 2015 Darth Vader miniseries. She’s a criminal archeologist working for the Dark Lord. Eventually, Aphra severed her ties with Vader and even crossed paths with Han Solo and Luke Skywalker.

Aphra is one of the only in-canon Star Wars characters depicted as queer. Her creator, writer Kieron Gillen, has gone on record saying: “I normally say Aphra’s a lesbian.”

Rumor is that filming has already started for this new series and that it tentatively scheduled to be released in 2020. There’s also speculation that it will be a Lucasfilm-Marvel venture but there’s no word yet if Kevin Feige will be involved. If the new series is indeed in the works, then the excitement for Star Wars and future Star Wars projects won’t end after The Rise of Skywalker releases next week!

For now, we’ll just take this as an awesome rumor we really hope to be true.
