Nerfariously planning
After many years of rumors and possibilities, it's finally happening.

Lucasfilm is developing a live-action Star Wars series for Disney’s new streaming service, Disney’s CEO, Bob Iger, announced today.

There isn’t much information about the series, but it will be released exclusively on Disney’s streaming service. The service is set to launch in 2019. The Star Wars series will be joined by three other live-action shows also based on Disney properties; one will be based on Marvel, another on Monster’s Inc. and a third one based on the High School Musical franchise.
It makes sense that they bring out the big guns for their new streaming service, so only time will tell what it will be now.

I feel like, depending on the story, this would need a really high budget.

What a shocker but agreed, makes sense, Disney would roll out with their big guns. Wonder if it's an original or one of the old pitches they have like the one following the criminal underground.

We almost did get one prior to the Disney acquisition, which would've taken place between Episode III and IV.

Um, the streaming service isn't going to be called "Disney Play". It was confirmed a month or two ago.
