Favreau’s Star Wars series to have a 100 million dollar budget

Jon Favreau’s Star Wars tv show is to get a serious load of money poured into it. As one of the flagship shows exclusively on the unnamed Disney streaming service coming soon, the series is reportedly getting a 100 million dollar budget which would give each episode a 10 million dollar budget.

Per Indiewire:

“‘Star Wars’ is a big world, and Disney’s new streaming service affords a wonderful opportunity to tell stories that stretch out over multiple chapters,” Favreau told the Times in an email. For comparison, the final six episodes of “Game of Thrones” will be budgeted at $15 million apiece, “The Crown” costs $130 million per season, and Amazon’s Lord of the Rings” series is on track to be the most expensive TV show in history — it’s estimated to cost more than $1 billion total.

The series will be set in the 30-year time span between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens.
