  • Disney’s New Star Wars Series Has a $100 Million Budget

Disney owns ESPN, Marvel, 21st Century Fox, ABC, and Star Wars, and they intend to bring aspects of those properties to their new service.

The streaming service is expected to launch in 2019, and while a price has not yet been announced, Disney said a year ago it would be "substantially cheaper" than a subscription with rival Netflix.

Now, thanks to a lengthy New York Times piece about the upcoming streaming service, we have an answer.

Although details about the plot have remained under wraps, we do know that Jon Favreau will be helming the project.

In the face of rumors he might be heading to one of the hottest teams in baseball, he'd have been forgiven for being a tad disappointed.

Presented only as an offhand comment rather than an official reveal, the Times reports the Star Wars series will run for 10 episodes, with an estimated budget for the series clocking in at a hefty $US100 million ($135 million), or pretty much $US10 million ($13.5 million) an episode. He directed the first two Iron Man films and has played Tony Stark's friend and chauffeur Happy Hogan in several Marvel Cinematic Universe installments, the most recent being Spider-Man: Homecoming. He's now working on the live-action remake of the 1994 animated classic The Lion King for Disney.

An allegedly massive budget for a Star Wars series makes sense - and not just from the production standpoint of needing a ton of CG, a lot of sets, and costuming additions such as weird aliens, suits of armour, and all the other things that make Star Wars look like Star Wars. What we do know is Disney is spending big on it in hopes that it will attract loyal Star Wars fans to signup for their new service. Previously, only pre-visual work was used for Star Wars.

Expect more details about the lifespan of Marvel movies on Netflix as Disney gets closer to launching the service, and also keep an eye on if Doctor Strange and Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 get their full 18-month tenure on the service...
