The service was first announced in late 2017, with a plan of producing original film and television material in addition to catalog content. Disney CEO Bob Iger revealed that "a few" Star Wars series were among the content that would be produced for the service. Some of these will be The Mandalorian, a revival season of Cartoon Network's animated series Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and a second yet untitled Star Wars television series centered on Cassian Jeron Andor. In May 2019, Iger said that a third live-action show may premiere on the service sometime prior to the release of the 2022 Star Wars film, which was later revealed to be an untitled Star Wars television series centered on Obi-Wan Kenobi. According to Variety, all of the service's original content will have "broad family appeal."
