The projects linked to Star Wars are linked, but the latest is surprising: According to Variety , Leslye Headland, creator of Russian Doll , one of the critical boxes of last year on Netflix, is developing a whole new series in the universe created by George Lucas. Why is the news so surprising?

On this day in #StarWars history: 35 years ago, the first US theatrical debut of the original trilogy was launched in just a handful of theaters for one performance only.

Russian Doll , who collected four Emmy Awards nominations for his first season - which tells how a disillusioned 30-year-old relives endlessly on the same day - stood out more for his creaky black humor than for the flamboyant heroism of his characters. Should we expect a more introspective Star Wars series focused on the psychology of the protagonists? For now, Variety has no additional information.

For soon

Two other series are in development in the universe of Star Wars  : while the second season of the cardboard The Mandalorian is announced for the end of the year, a third is already in preparation.

As for the other flagship series announced by Disney +, dedicated to Obi-Wan Kenobi and starring Ewan McGregor in the role of the Jedi Master, it is still in production while part of the creative team has been modified. Finally, a third project, announced as a prequel to Rogue One , the Star Wars spin-off released in 2016, should focus on the character of Cassian Andor, played by Diego Luna.

No release date has been announced for these projects, but Star Wars fans may have something to eat for years to comeā€¦
