It can't be denied that Disney+ revitalized the Star Wars franchise after the sequel trilogy failed to meet expectations and it's amazing how Lucasfilm was able to turn things around especially after fans thought that the franchise was over after the sequels. Now, it looks like the House of Mouse's namesake streaming service plans to reinforce the Star Wars universe, and apart from the slew of upcoming projects, several other mystery shows, and films are currently in the works.

Speaking of, the folks over at Giant Freakin Robot are reporting that Lucasfilm is finally greenlighting the long-rumored Mara Jade series. The specifics about the said project weren't disclosed but fans have been clamoring for Mara, who was once married to Luke Skywalker in the Legends lore to make her live-action crossover.

Sure, a series centered on Mara Jade sounds interesting and all but the real question is, how would she fit into the established Star Wars continuity given the fact that she's considered a "Legends" character? Does it mean Mara Jade is on her way to becoming recognized as canon once again? Will her history with Luke Skywalker be addressed? How does it affect the future of the franchise?

It's also worth noting that Lucasfilm is reportedly adamant about giving the Star Wars franchise an MCU-like treatment with all of its projects being linked to one another so I guess there's a huge chance of Mara being brought back as a canon character instead of her rumored series being a "what if" kind of project.

Meanwhile, you can get your Star Wars fix over at Disney+.
