Now that the Skywalker saga appears to be closed - or is it? - not even the most stupid Stormtrooper would think that audiences are done with the galaxy that's far, far away.

Well, they're right because the Force is still strong with Star Wars franchise, especially when it comes to their new streaming service, Disney +.

We already know that an Obi-Wan Kenobi series is on the way which sees Ewan McGregor return as the beloved Jedi Master. Aside from this, there's also an untitled series in development for Cassian Andor, the hero played by Diego Luna in Rogue One.

Two new TV shows appears to be a no-brainer, especially due to the success of The Mandalorian. Despite the fact that Disney+ is not available in Ireland until March, Jon Favreau's show has proven to be a massive hit.

Hell, it's so popular that that a second season has already been commissioned and it's set arrive in the second half of 2020.

Given the popularity of The Mandalorian, Baby Yoda, Cara Dune and co., fans have been wondering if characters from the show could make the jump to the big screen?

Well, one man hat might have an answer is Disney's CEO Bob Iger.

During a recent interview on The Star Wars Show, Iger was optimistic about a potential film featuring characters from The Mandalorian.

‘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," he said.

Essentially, the Star Wars universe is about to get a whole lot bigger.

Disney Plus will launch in Ireland in March.
