Covid-19 may be wreaking havoc on your holiday season, but for Star Wars fans Christmas has come early.
Disney’s investor day announcements were so full of unexpected bombshells that even the most dedicated fans may have lost track. So here’s a list of everything we know about upcoming future releases.
- Rogue Squadron – film
The next film to hit cinemas, due on Dec 22 2023. Patty Jenkins is taking the reigns and has hinted that we’ll be seeing a whole new set of characters and an original story, whilst paying homage to existing lore.
- Taika Watiti’s project – film
No release date yet and no name. All we know is that New Zealand born in 1917 and Thor: Ragnarok director Taika Watiti is on board. Disney has two release dates penciled in for unknown films, December 2025 and December 2027. Its likely Watiti’s film will fill one of these slots
- The Mandolorian Season 3
With the first two season becoming an instant hit, Disney have confirmed S3
- Obi-Wan Kenobi Series
Rumoured for 2022, Ewan McGregor and Hayden Christensen are back; the fiercest rivalry on the galaxy is set to go one more round.
- Andor – series
Slated for 2021, this Rogue One spin-off will follow Cassian Andor and has been labeled a ‘rousing spy thriller.’ We’re guessing its set before the events on Scarif…
- The Bad Bunch – animated series
Rumoured for 2021, the Clone Wars favourite misfit, defective, Clone company will me making their way through the galaxy post Order 66
- Ahsoka – series
Release date unknown. After the reaction to Rosario Dawson bringing this character to life in the Mandolorian, it would have been a huge Disney own goal not to have commissioned this one.
- Ranger of the New Republic – series
No date for this one yet, but with Mando showrunner Jon Favreau and Clone Wars veteran Dave Filoni onboard, and an apparent overlap with Ahsoka and Mando, we’re expecting big things
- Lando – series
Again no confirmed date, but the real question here is Glover or no Glover? He brought so much of his own charisma to the role in Solo, Disney will have a tough time casting someone else to fill his boots.
- The Acolyte – series
Details are few and far between at this point. We do know that this will be a ‘mystery thriller’ and be part of the new multi-platform High Republic subseries.
- A Droid Story – series
Lucasfilm Animation and the legendary Industrial Light and Magic are coming together to bring forward a story based around R2-D2, C-3PO and an as-yet-unnamed new droid
- Star Wars: Visions – anime anthology
A new direction for Star Wars but one that really excites: anime. A collection of short films that will be produced by ‘several leading Japanese anime studios.’
