According to That Hashtag Show, a new animated series is in development at Disney+ based on the “Star Wars: Lost Stars” novel. “Lost Stars” was first published in 2015 and was written by Claudia Gray. The highly popular book was marketed towards young adults and follows two Imperial Academy recruits as they are thrust into the Imperial conflict with the Rebellion. It closely follows the Battle of Jakku and events before it.
You can read a summary of the book below:
The reign of the Galactic Empire has reached the Outer Rim planet of Jelucan, where aristocratic Thane Kyrell and rural villager Ciena Ree bond over their love of flying. Enrolling at the Imperial Academy together to become fighter pilots for the glorious Empire is nothing less than a dream come true for the both of them. But Thane sours on the dream when he sees firsthand the horrific tactics the Empire uses to maintain its ironclad rule.
Bitter and disillusioned, Thane joins the fledgling Rebellion — putting Ciena in an unbearable position to choose between her loyalty to the Empire and her love for the man she’s known since childhood.
Now on opposite sides of the war, will these friends turned foes find a way to be together, or will duty tear them — and the galaxy — apart?
Since nothing has been confirmed by Lucasfilm or Disney, we will treat this as a rumor for now. Disney+ has had many successful animated Star Wars projects so far including The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Visions and The Bad Batch which has been renewed for a second season.
Stay tuned to Disney Plus Informer for any updates to this story as they become available.
