Just don’t call it The Woman-dalorian!

Disney+ is working on a new “Star Wars” series that will have a female-centric point of view, according to Variety.

While exact plot details have not been revealed, the action-thriller will reportedly take place in an alternate timeline than the original franchise. No casting specifics have been disclosed either.

Lesley Headland, who co-created the Netflix series “Russian Doll,” is developing the project for the streaming platform.

The series will be the latest in the “Star Wars” universe and follows on the heels of the breakout hit “The Mandalorian.”

The live-action series, which made Baby Yoda a superstar, has become a blockbuster since debuting in November.

With the show’s second season set to premiere in October, it was recently announced that it has already been picked up for a third season.

“We’ve just started pre-production and are looking into further adventures for the Mandalorian in Season 3,” a source told the publication.

There are also two other live-action “Star Wars” projects currently in various stages of development at Disney Plus. There’s an Obi-Wan Kenobi series with Ewan McGregor and a ”Rogue One” prequel series starring Diego Luna.

Headland co-created “Russian Doll” with Amy Poehler and Natasha Lyonne. In the series, Lyonne plays a video game coder who keeps dying and coming back to life on her 36th birthday.

The Netflix hit went on to receive 13 Emmy nominations and won three.
