The Force is femming the future over at Disney+. Disney has confirmed that it is developing yet another Star Wars series -- this time, the show will be one with a female focus that takes place in a different timeline than other projects. Leslye Headland, who co-created and executive produced the critically acclaimed Netflix series Russian Doll, is spearheading the series.

Not much more is known about the project now, other than that it will join a growing roster of Star Wars-related shows for the streamer. Disney+ is also working on the Cassian Andor-centered Rogue One prequel series, and the Obi-Wan Kenobi series starring Ewan McGregor. A third season of the hit The Mandalorian is also in the works before the second has even aired. Disney also announced that The MandalorianSeason 1 finale director Taika Waititi will co-write and direct his own Star Wars movie.
