There’s a rumor floating around the Star Wars universe about a secret Lucasfilm-Marvel project that could hit Disney+ in 2020, and it features a character who has made their hey in Star Wars comics.

The series will be about Doctor Aphra, who like I’ve explained made her name in Marvel’s reboot of various Star Wars comic book threads. She made plenty of appearances in the Darth Vader runs, and even got her own run of books due to her popularity.

This rumor comes via Making Star Wars’s Jason Ward, who is known in the community as a legit leaker. Inverse got the exclusive from him, and he seems confident in his sources.

“A new Star Wars show is starting about now that nobody even knows about. I’m hearing it’s a Lucasfilm-Marvel venture with both companies teaming up to bring a Star Wars show to the small screen.”

At this time no one knows if Kevin Feige will be involved in this rumored project or not, but his inclusion would make sense.
