AICN says the first movie will star Yoda. I remember Lucas mentioning doing a Yoda movie set hundreds of years ago back around 2005.
Yoda IMO has the best merchandizing capabilities for Disney and as a character to add to their theme parks he's perfect for younger children.
Regarding TV - ABC, Disney's network - has had very spotty luck with sci-fi. Their two recent attempts - Defying Gravity and V both went down in flames.
I'm not sure ABC is anxious to hop back into that bailiwick even with the name Star Wars affixed to the show's title.
