Jon Favreau’s ‘Star Wars’ Live-Action Series Will Reportedly Cost $100M For 10-Episodes

The New York Times has some interesting figures for Jon Favreau‘s live-action Star Wars series reporting that the ten episodes will cost Disney/Lucasfilm about $100 million. The show will see multiple directors and writers tackling the Star Wars universe. The new series set for Disney’s streaming service.

A live-action “Star Wars” series coming to the platform from Jon Favreau, the director of films like “Iron Man” and “The Jungle Book,” is expected to cost roughly $100 million for 10 episodes. “‘Star Wars’ is a big world, and Disney’s new streaming service affords a wonderful opportunity to tell stories that stretch out over multiple chapters,” Mr. Favreau said in an email. He added of Mr. Strauss: “Marketing is about telling a story, and his background in that area allows us to collaborate and create new content.”

It’s interesting to see Disney taking cues from HBO’s usual 10-episode run for their shows.

Filming on the series is eyeing a start sometime this fall.
