The Mandalorian will be debuting very soon, alongside Disney+ and fans of Star Wars are ecstatic over what the show’s success could mean for the future. We already know that an Obi-Wan Kenobi series is in development but Disney CEO Bob Iger has confirmed that there’s more Star Wars shows coming to the streaming service, some of them supposedly in development already.

According to an earnings call covered by The Wrap, Iger confirmed that there are more Star Wars shows in development that will be coming out after The Mandalorian. Unfortunately, he did not name these other Star Wars shows or say what they would be about but that kind of stuff is usually not discussed during an earnings call. Still, fans should be happy with the fact that there are more Star Wars coming.

It’s an interesting statement since Iger had actually discussed Star Wars movies taking a big hiatus after The Rise of Skywalker comes out. Maybe these shows are the reason why we won’t be getting any Star Wars movies for a while, though the lower than expected box office for Solo: A Star Wars Story is the likely culprit.

Right now, fans are probably just excited about The Mandalorian and the kind of stories that can come from its setting. After all, it’s not every day where the seedy underbelly of Star Wars gets to be explored. Hopefully, it’s a quality show that everyone can enjoy.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian debuts on November 12, along with the Disney+ streaming service.
