Lucasfilm and Marvel would be working on a Star Wars series focused on Doctor Aphra

While the future of Star wars in the cinema it is not clear after The Rise of Skywalker, the saga will continue to grow over the next few years with the help of new series that will be released on the Disney streaming service.

In this scenario for the next years the presentations of a new season of The Mandalorian and the Cassian Andor and Obi Wan Kenobi series. But that would not be everything Disney would have in development.

According to a new rumor, Lucasfilm would be developing a new live-action series focused on Doctor Aphra. This project would be a Lucasfilm and Marvel joint work and, although it is not yet officially announced, it would already be in the process of production with a view to possible premiere during next year at Disney Plus.

The rumor comes from Jason Ward, who is known for giving Star Wars information on his MakingStarWars site, and who in an interview with Inverse said a series of Doctor Aphra was underway.

“I heard it is a Lucasfilm-Marvel adventure with both companies together to bring a Star Wars series to the small screen,” Ward commented to Inverse. “It's not clear if Kevin Feige, whom Disney recently approached to work on an unannounced Star Wars project, will somehow participate in the Doctor Aphra series.”

Doctor Aphra debuted in the Star Wars canon during the comics released by Marvel in 2015. There the character was presented as a archaeologist who was selected by Darth Vader to work for him and he had no problems collaborating or betraying either side of the galactic conflict.

The co-creator of Doctor Aphra, Kieron Gillen, defines the character as a lesbian and the adventures of this archeologist are mainly developed during the time of the original trilogy.

From his appearances in the main Star Wars comics, Doctor Aphra continued his story with his own solo series that after several numbers will be re-released in April 2020.
