As we enter the sixth decade of Star Wars, just beyond the end of the final chapter of the Skywalker Saga and the end of season one of The Mandalorian, it’s a sensible time to assess the future of Star Wars and where the best place to tell stories lie. Speaking recently, Bob Iger discussed the idea of TV shows becoming movies and visa versa.

“I don’t look at it as just television, I look at it as an extension of Star Wars storytelling. What Disney+ has given us the ability to do is to do just that, is to bring Star Wars to people in new ways, and to bring new Star Wars to people. It’s not the same places or the same characters. Just look at Mandalorian. While, obviously, there’s a lot shared, there’s a lot that’s really fresh, and I love that.”

“I love the ability to really be agnostic in terms of what platform it’s being made for, and so it could be, down the road, that a TV show becomes a movie and a movie becomes a TV series. I’m not making any announcements here or not, but I think it’s important for us to be agnostic.”
