Bob Iger teases a potential third live-action Star Wars series Despite the end nearing for the primary saga of the long-running sci-fi film franchise Star Wars, Disney CEO Bob Iger not only announced today that the next three Star Wars films are the in-development projects from Game of Thrones creators David Benioff and D.B. Weiss, but that there may also be a third live-action TV series extension of the franchise in the works. Speaking at the MoffettNathanson Media & Communications Summit, Iger discussed the future of the franchise and how the studio is planning on filling the gaps between the final primary installment The Rise of Skywalker and the first installment of the next trilogy, which is slated for a December 2022 release. “..In the interim, we are producing two Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, one of them is called The Mandalorian, which is being supervised by Jon Favreau, and the other one is a bit of a prequel to Rogue One. And my guess is there will probably be at least one more live-action series that we produce for Disney+ (meaning a Star Wars series), before we release the next film.” The franchise thus far has only seen three TV series extensions of the lore, all of which however have been animated, and the studio is currently working on two live-action small screen spin-offs. The first is The Mandalorian focusing on the lone titular gunfighter, which is set to premiere on the upcoming streaming service Disney+ on November 12. The second series currently in the works for Disney+ is an untitled project focusing on Rogue One character Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), described as an espionage thriller, from The Americans writer Stephen Schiff, which is set to begin production sometime later this year. Iger’s comments don’t necessarily confirm the development of a third series, but given the franchise’s popularity and potential for multiple story expansions, the mammoth studio’s inclinations to potentially produce a third iteration definitely creates hope for more adventures in a galaxy far, far away.

Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5 Recap In the of HBO’s , Sansa and Arya learned the truth about Jon’s parentage, and Cersei executed Missandei in front of Daenerys. In Game of Thrones Season 8 Episode 5, the penultimate episode of the series, Daenerys dealt with a number of betrayals, and her forces attacked King’s Landing. The Spider Varys wrote letters about Jon being the true heir to the Iron Throne. When Jon arrived in Dragonstone, Varys tried to convince him that he would be the better ruler. Tyrion confessed to Daenerys that Varys had betrayed her, but she already knew. She took it to mean that Jon had betrayed her, and when Jon couldn’t be with her romantically, Daenerys resigned herself to ruling through fear. She had Varys executed for his treason. The Mad Queen Despite the scorpions, Euron’s fleet, and the Golden Company, Daenerys’s forces, especially her remaining dragon, Drogon, cut through them like butter. The battle for King’s Landing was over soon, as the bells rang to announce Cersei’s surrender and the Lannister soldiers dropped their weapons. However, Daenerys wasn’t finished and used Drogon to rain fire down on King’s Landing, civilians and all. Grey Worm charged the surrendering soldiers, and the rest of Daenerys’s armies resumed attacking. Eventually, Jon ordered his troops to fall back. Cleganebowl Arya and The Hound finally made it into the Red Keep. As the castle crumbled around them, Sandor told her that she had to go back. If Arya followed him, she would not survive. Arya thanked him and left the castle. We followed Arya as she made her way through the devastation, trying to save as many as she could but ultimately failing as ashes rained from the sky. She found a horse and rode it away. In the Red Keep, The Hound found his brother escorting Cersei and Qyburn to safety. Sandor confronted Gregor. The Mountain ignored Cersei’s orders to stay with her and killed Qyburn in an instant. Cersei got out of there as the Clegane brothers squared off. Though The Mountain overpowered him, Sandor got some good stabs in. The only problem was that The Mountain is undead. He shrugged them off and pressed his fingers into The Hound’s eyes. Knowing that even a dagger through the eye wasn’t working, Sandor threw himself onto his brother, and they tumbled from the tower into fire and destruction. Together to the End The Unsullied had caught Jaime and were guarding him. As Daenerys’s Hand, Tyrion gained access to him and set him free. Jaime was supposed to convince Cersei to surrender by ringing the bells and opening the gates. Unfortunately, Jaime missed the cutoff as the gates to the Red Keep closed, so he had to find another way in. He ran into Euron, fresh out of the water after Drogon destroyed his fleet. He fought Jaime and stabbed him. Despite Jaime ultimately besting him, Euron rejoiced at having killed Jaime, who wasn’t dead yet. He taunted Jaime for being a Kingslayer yet again as he died. Jaime found Cersei and took her through the crumbling castle. They went underground, but debris blocked the way out for them. Jaime held her as everything around them caved in, and they died together. What did you think of the penultimate episode of Game of Thrones? Let us know in the comment section below!
