​The Mandalorian Characters Could Be Getting Their Own Standalone Series

​The Mandalorian Characters Could Be Getting Their Own Standalone Series

CEO Bob Iger has said television is now a 'priority' for the Star Wars franchise, saying certain characters from The Mandalorian may even get their series in the process.

Speaking about the future for Star Wars in an earnings call this week, Iger said: "The priority in the next few years is television."

He added: "[There is] more coming from The Mandalorian thereafter, including the possibility of infusing it with more characters and the possibility of taking those characters in their own directions in terms of series."

While Iger didn't expand on any details, including which characters they'd like to give more attention to, I think we can all agree what the world wants:

We wouldn't be against adding more characters, either... After all, there's always room for more than one Baby Yoda in the Star Wars universe, surely?

According to Iger, since it premiered last year, the show has been a major success story for Disney - with 65 percent of viewers going on to sample at least 10 other offerings on Disney+.

Disney also announced its new streaming service, which launched last November in the US and four other countries, has so far attracted 28.6 million customers.

The series went out on a bang with final episode 'Redemption', which has a perfect 100 percent Fresh rating on Rotten Tomatoes with 26 reviews submitted from professional critics.

ComicBook.com's Brandon Davis wrote: "It's all so impressively executed, resulting in the best Star Wars content in years. The Mandalorian's pace of storytelling is masterful, with each entry earning a well-timed action sequence that appears to be above television standards.

"A man whose face is not seen until the final episode is made to be interestingly human and his allies each have their own respective highlights in the final episodes.

"And, well, Baby Yoda is just adorable every time it graces the screen - especially when it is saving the day in epic fashion. The show is a well-balanced adventure through the galaxy, full of hope, thrills, and triumph."

The show isn't set to be released in the UK until 31 March 2020.
