(BURBANK): On the heels of the runaway success of “The Mandalorian”, Disney called a hastily-organized press conference today to announce several new “Star Wars” related programs to premiere next year.
“It’s going to be a great year for the Force!” exclaimed Disney CEO Robert Iger, “You remember when Chewbacca yelled at that little droid when Han and Luke were pretending to be Stormtroopers escorting him in the first movie? Well that droid’s got a thirteen episode order.
“Remember that guy in ‘Empire’ who told Han he’d freeze when he went out on his Tauntaun? There’ll be a special world-premiere movie and then an 18 episode arc. It’ll follow “Mos Eisley Bartender” about everyone’s favorite droid-hating bartender. 21 episodes for him.”
Iger, slightly sweaty, then started taking suggestions from reporters in the room.
“Power Droid! Love it! Love it!” he excitedly yelled while writing the suggestions on a white board.
“Would anyone watch a show about the Death Star technicians in the planet-destroying ray tube? You know what? I’m just going to write it down. No bad ideas, no bad ideas.”
