‘Star Wars’ Series For Disney’s Upcoming Streaming Platform To Cost A Reported $100 Million

The series’ hefty price tag is a new detail, however. It will be 10 episodes, portioning the budget to roughly $10 million per episode and edging out other ambitious streaming productions like cancelled Netflix series Sense8’s second season, which rang in it at a reported $9 million per episode. ($100 million doesn’t seem nearly so pricey, though, when compared to the cost of the Lord of the Rings series in development at Amazon; the rights alone reportedly cost $250 million, and some outlets have estimated it will have a $500 million production budget. – James Loke Hale, Tubefilter https://ift.tt/2PbjoJp
