Disney’s Upcoming ‘Star Wars’ Series Will Be One of the Most Expensive TV Shows of All Time

This post may contain affiliate links; please read the disclosure for more information.

We have new details about the upcoming Star Wars series set to debut in 2019.

The upcoming intergalactic tv show is expected to cost $100 million for 10 episodes, or $10 million an episode. Comparing the price tag to other TV shows, the most recent season of Game of Thrones also cost $10 million an episode. Disney is surely banking on the show to help drive customers to try their new streaming service when it debuts.

This will be Disney’s first response to Solo, which bombed in theaters, so quality is key for this series. Also, Episode IX comes out in late 2019, so Disney will not want the series to damage excitement for that film.

This live-action show, directed by Jon Favreau, is set seven years after Return of the Jedi. The series is expected to debut with Disney’s streaming service in 2019.

They apparently can’t make “fans” happy with films that are too much like the old movies, films that are too different from the old movies, or films with fan-favorite characters pulling off an exciting heist, so at this point, they’re better off not trying to please “fans”. I’m intrigued with what Favreau will come up with.

I hope they decide male Star Wars fans are not the enemy. They can put in as many females characters as they want, but females viewers will not materialize. It’s time for a male hero after the irritating The Last Jedi. Sure, Solo was the blowback. I didn’t want to support anymore Star Wars after watching the horrible The Last Jedi. It should be called The Last Dollar.

It might surprise you (being a bitter, woman-hating fake fan), but lots of male viewers thought The Last Jedi was one of the best Star Wars films ever made, easily, and that its female leads are terrific characters. It’s people like you who are poisonous to the Star Wars films.

You again Fred? A bitter hater of reality. The Last Jedi so underperformed A Force Awakens that it isn’t close. Star Wars merchandising fell flat. They couldn’t move the Rose Tico figures. No one liked the death of Luke Skywalker so they are bringing him back.

Go ahead, call me a fake fan. I suppose anyone that says they like The Last Jedi is quite fake.

Looking forward to the new TV series. Hopefully they learned to keep politics out of Star Wars. There are many problems with The Last Jedi that goes far beyond SJW stuff. I have no problem with strong female lead characters in fact one of the most disappointing parts of both Episodes VII and VIII was the total let down of the Captain Phasma character. They hyped her character up and knowing that Brienne of Tarth was going to be in Star Wars I was really looking forward to that but come on, her character was a joke in both movies,… Read more »

Rey misjudged Kylo big time and almost got herself and others killed. Not very perfect there. I’d say she still has plenty to learn.

A male hero like Luke Skywalker or Poe or Finn? They were the ones that ultimately saved the day in the Last Jedi.

I remember Rey and Kylo fighting the Praetorian guards together and feeling confused because since Soke is dead isn’t Kylo their new boss, isn’t he going to be signing their paychecks now?? I don’t know the part that Rey almost got killed by misjudging Kylo, must have happened during the time I fell asleep during this exciting movie. Also if I remember right Finn almost saved the day when he almost flew his flying thing into to battering ram thing but was stopped by Rose. I don’t know what else he did and as for Poe unless he was helping… Read more »

The new Star Wars series will do just fine if they keep Rian Johnson as far away from it as possible. Oh, and leave out the SJW crap too.
