What’s next for “Star Wars”? It’s an overriding question that not only the fanbase is now faced with but also Disney, whose highly successful “The Mandalorian” series stole both hearts and minds of many well beyond the “Star Wars” fan circle. Primed for Disney Plus as upcoming “Star Wars” projects, both a Cassian Andor and an Obi-Wan Kenobi series are in the works, though Disney CEO Bob Iger may have bigger plans for the streaming platform. 

Amid an interview with "The Star Wars Show" (via Slashfilm), Iger explained that the future of Disney Plus “Star Wars” content may not be cemented in television. The streaming platform’s literal streamlined capabilities have, according to Iger, opened new doorways for the company to explore “Star Wars” in many ways.

“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,” Iger explained.

The Disney CEO has made similar comments before, alluding to “more in development” on the nature of “Star Wars” Disney Plus content. Though it’s unclear what exactly the future of Disney Plus “Star Wars” may look like and what “Star Wars” characters it may follow, Iger added that this unknown is the very point.

“It’s not the same places or the same characters,” he said to "The Star Wars Show." “Just look at ‘The Mandalorian.’ While, obviously, there’s a lot shared, there’s a lot that’s really fresh, and I love that.”

Given the close of the Skywalker saga with “Star Wars: The RIse of Skywalker,” new “Star Wars” movies will be key to ensuring the franchise remains at the precipice of pop culture. Diminished fan enthusiasm following “The Last Jedi” has placated the Iger “Star Wars” universe, which can only be amended with new and interesting ways of experiencing “Star Wars” on the silver screen.

Iger added, “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."
