Disney Chairman Bob Iger announced on an investor call that Disney is developing a live-action Star Wars series for its nascent streaming service which is expected to launch in 2018, according to Ben Fritz of the Wall Street Journal.

No further information about the reported series was given. Whether it has any connection to the series George Lucas said he was developing prior to Disney's purchase of Lucasfilm is unknown.

The news comes on the heels of Disney's announcement that Star Wars: The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would create an entirely original Star Wars film trilogy.
