STAR WARS: 5 More Live-Action TV Shows That Would Be An Absolute Must-See On Disney+

It's believed that Lucasfilm has a lot of live-action Star Wars TV shows in the works for Disney+, but which characters and stories should they be making a priority for the streaming service? Check it out!

Features Opinion

With Lucasfilm hitting the pause button on its big screen Star Wars projects after The Rise of Skywalker disappointed, the studio has shifted focus to storytelling on the small screen. This Galaxy Far, Far Away is rapidly expanding thanks to Disney+, and there are lots of exciting projects on the way like Ahsoka, Skeleton Key, and more of The Mandalorian.

It's definitely a fun time to be a fan of this franchise, even if the Skywalker Saga ended with a whimper rather than a bang. Moving forward, there are countless tales Lucasfilm could tell, and with the likes of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni in charge, we're confident those we do and don't know about will be something special. 

In this feature, we take a look at 5 possible TV shows which could come next, focusing on various characters, locations, and points in this Galaxy's history. They would all bring something different to the table, while filling in some big gaps and giving certain heroes and villains the screentime they deserve.

To take a look through our suggestions. all you guys need to do is click on the "Next" button below!

5. Darth Plagueis

Plageius

These TV shows can delve into any time period, and heading back to Darth Plagueis' rule could be very exciting indeed. The Sith Lord was responsible for training Darth Sidious (better known to fans as Emperor Palpatine), and Lucasfilm would be wise to not only explore Plagueis' past, but also the origin of the man who would eventually betray him

Whether casual viewers could get on board with a show devoted entirely to villains is hard to say, but getting our first real look inside the world of the Sith and seeing the young Palpatine develop into the villain we all know from both the Star Wars prequels and original trilogy would be immensely satisfying. This could also fill in some of the gaps from The Rise of Skywalker.

If you've read the Expanded Universe novel revolving around Plagueis and Palpatine, then you'll be all too aware of the fact this series could take us to some dark places. 

4. Maul

Mauk

Thanks to The Clone Wars and Star Wars Rebels, plenty of gaps in Maul's history have been covered. We know how he returned from the "dead," and how he ultimately fell to Master Obi-Wan Kenobi, but there are still parts of his life which remain a mystery to fans of this Galaxy Far, Far Away.

That's mostly what happened between The Clone Wars and Solo: A Star Wars Story, and then that movie and Rebels. That's not a huge period of time, but we do need some Crimson Dawn answers!

Following Maul as he takes charge of that villainous group would also address some of the unanswered questions we have from Solo's shocking ending, and we're sure Lucasfilm (and more specifically Dave Filoni) could find a way to really make this an essential part of the character's story.

3. Young Princess Leia

Leia

Exploring Princess Leia’s younger years in a TV series could work really well, even if those were briefly touched on in Rogue One and Star Wars Rebels. Her late teens/early twenties would be ideal, but we're sure the future Resistance leader had some adventures on Alderaan, especially if Obi-Wan Kenobi was any indication. 

It was clear from the moment we met her that Leia could handle herself (and that she had some history interacting with the Empire), so there’s a lot of ground which could be covered in a series where she’s the lead. Female-led Star Wars TV shows do appear to be a priority for Disney+, so this could fit in nicely.

Following in Carrie Fisher's footsteps won't be an easy feat for any young actress, but we'd like to wait a few years and give the immensely talented Vivien Lyra Blair another shot. 

2. Stormtroopers

Trooper

The Stormtroopers were always faceless canon fodder in the original Star Wars trilogy and didn’t exactly gain much in the way of personalities when they were turned into clones in the prequels. The Force Awakens went some way in changing that by introducing us to Finn, but that was about it.

Following a small team of these soldiers could result in a fun series, especially if the Rebels are portrayed as the villains (in the eyes of those working for the Empire at least) or the Stormtroopers we follow are shown to be conflicted about their actions. It really wouldn’t matter when this one was set, as it could work before, during, or even after the original trilogy with The First Order.

The Mandalorian showed us how enjoyable this could be after showing the fun dynamic between the Scout Troopers who scooped up The Child, and with the right story, Lucasfilm could deliver an absolute winner here. 

1. Han Solo

Han

Given the way it underperformed at the box office, there's no way that we're getting a Solo: A Star Wars Story sequel. However, just because that won't come blasting into theaters doesn't mean Han Solo's early years couldn't continue to be explored, this time on the small screen. 

If there's not enough content there for a Maul TV show, his story could very easily be incorporated into this show, especially as things were left on something of a cliffhanger with Qi'ra. 

Solo was definitely hardened by the time we met him in A New Hope, and witnessing the death of the woman he loved at the hands of Maul would explain that. Lucasfilm can build on some of the recent Marvel Comics stories with Qi'ra and give Alden Ehrenreich the chance to finish what he started with his underrated take on the iconic smuggler.
