Within the year, Disney will be launching their new streaming service, which will allow them to reach directly into our pockets for home streaming entertainment. So, rather than getting mittens dirty with the likes of Netflix or Hulu, they can serve us up that Disney-branded goodness straight from the proverbial oven (and it’s about this time I realized my backwards-ass analogy never worked to begin with).
Of course, Disney-branded content won’t be the only good stuff audiences will be privy to on their service. We’ll also have access to Marvel and Star Wars. However, in addition to the films in each franchise, there will also be original content in the form of live-action series. The main big Star Wars series we know we’ll be getting is none other than The Mandalorian, which will follow a lone gunman on the outskirts of the universe.
But how long will these episodes be in the eight-episode series? A new Making Star Wars report states that we can expect each episode to range from 40 to 45 minutes in length. Yeah, I know, it’s not exactly the sexiest piece of news. I’m sure most of you would have guessed this right from the get-go. However, in this era of premium TV, it wouldn’t be unthinkable to have a show that skews closer to an hour each episode.
