Upcoming Star Wars Movies

Rogue Squadron

December 22, 2023

Director: Patty Jenkins

Disney confirmed during an Investors Day presentation in Dec. 2020 that the first Star Wars movie to follow The Rise of Skywalker is Rogue Squadron, a movie that “will introduce a new generation of starfighter pilots as they earn their wings and risk their lives in a boundary-pushing, high-speed thrill-ride, and move the saga into the future era of the galaxy.”

Wonder Woman‘s Patty Jenkins will direct, making her the first woman to helm a Star Wars movie. We’re very excited about this!

Director: Taika Waititi

Writer: Taika Waititi and Krysty Wilson-Cairns

After his stint directing (and voice acting) on The Mandalorian, Taika Waititi will return for a big screen offering!

“Taika’s approach to Star Wars will be fresh, unexpected, and…unique,” said Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy in a statement in 2020. “His enormous talent and sense of humor will ensure that audiences are in for an unforgettable ride.”

There’s very little in the way of actual details right now, not even a release date yet, but we’ll be keeping a careful eye on this as it develops.

Director: J.D. Dillard

Writer: Matt Owens

Reports of a new Star Wars movie from Sleight director J.D. Dillard and Luke Cage writer Matt Owens first hit the internet in Feb. 2020. We don’t know much about this movie or when it’ll premiere. Could this be an exclusive Disney+ movie?

Rian Johnson - New Star Wars Trilogy Writer

Rian Johnson’s Star Wars Trilogy

TBA

As far as we know, The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson is still working on his own Star Wars trilogy. All we know about these movies is that this will take place in previously unexplored areas of the Star Wars universe, and it will kick off a brand new saga of films completely unrelated to the Skywalker story. We wrote in more detail about what that might mean for the franchise right here.

On the other hand, maybe Johnson’s recent comments about what a mistake it is to pander to fans are an indication that his relationship with Disney has soured. Read more about this new Star Wars trilogy here.

Upcoming Star Wars TV Shows

Disney seems to be rethinking a lot of their Star Wars movie strategy in favor of a more TV focused approach on Disney+. Here’s what we know is on the way…

The Mandalorian Season 2 Episode 6 Review

The Mandalorian Season 3

December 2021?

Executive Producers: Jon Favreau & Dave Filoni

Starring: Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, Gina Carano, Katee Sackhoff

The Mandalorian season 3 went into pre-production in 2020 and is set to film at some point in 2021 after work on The Book of Boba Fett is complete. According to an interview with Favreau on Good Morning America after the season 2 finale, it’s starting to seem likely that the new season won’t actually air until early 2022.

The next Star Wars animated series is The Bad Batch, starring Clone Force 99 from the final season of The Clone Wars. The series picks up after the war, as the galaxy takes a dark turn during the rise of the Galactic Empire. These misfit clone troopers “will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.”

Star Wars Visions

Visions

2021

The Bad Batch isn’t the only animated series coming up. Star Wars is finally getting its own anime anthology series. It’s called Visions, “a series of animated short films celebrating Star Wars through the lens of the world’s best anime creators. The anthology collection will bring 10 fantastic visions from several of the leading Japanese anime studios, offering a fresh and diverse cultural perspective to Star Wars.”

This sounds so cool!

Star Wars - Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi

2022

Director: Deborah Chow

Writer: Hossein Amini, Joby Harold

Starring: Ewan McGregor, Hayden Christensen

Ewan McGregor is finally returning to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi in a series set between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope. The Jedi Master has settled into his life as an exile on Tatooine, where he’s watching over Luke Skywalker from afar. Will his next adventure take him off-world or is he going to have to protect a defenseless village from raiders Toshiro Mifune style?

Here’s what we know about the plot: “The series begins 10 years after the dramatic events of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith where he faced his greatest defeat, the downfall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned evil Sith Lord Darth Vader.”

Hayden Christensen is returning to play Vader, which is very exciting!

This series was set to film in 2020, but has since been pushed back to March 2021 after writer Hossein Amini was replaced by Joby Harold, who is creating fresh scripts for the series. The show was also pushed back due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Andor

2022

Writer: Tony Gilroy

Starring: Diego Luna, Alan Tudyk, Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgard, Denise Gough, Kyle Stoller

Ad – content continues below

There’s a Rogue One spinoff series starring Rebel secret agent Cassian Andor coming to Disney+! According to the press release, “The rousing spy thriller will explore tales filled with espionage and daring missions to restore hope to a galaxy in the grip of a ruthless Empire.” This sounds very good.

This series was set to film in early 2020, but Covid-19 pandemic delayed the show. It finally began filming in November in London.

The Acolyte

TBA

Executive Producer & Writer: Leslye Headland

Russian Doll co-creator Leslye Headland is developing a new series called The Acolyte, which is set during the High Republic era, a time period that predates even The Phantom Menace. The series is said to be “female-centric” and seems to be a darker Star Wars story than what we’re used to seeing on screen.

Lucasfilm describes the show as “a mystery-thriller that will take the audience into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark side powers in the final days of the High Republic era.” Sounds intriguing!

We have some theories as to what the show could be about here.

Star Wars: The Mandalorian Ahsoka Tano

Ahsoka

TBA

Executive Producers: Jon Favreau & Dave Filoni

Writer: Dave Filoni

Starring: Rosario Dawson

Described as a limited series that continues the story of Ahsoka Tano after the events of The Mandalorian season 2 episode “The Jedi,” Ahsoka will likely bring the beloved hero one step closer to finding her missing Jedi friend Ezra Bridger and taking down Grand Admiral Thrawn once and for all.

Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic

Rangers of the New Republic

TBA

Executive Producers: Jon Favreau & Dave Filoni

We don’t know anything about this show except that it’s set within The Mandalorian timeline and will “intersect with future stories and culminate into a climactic story event.” It sounds like Star Wars may be on its way to having its first big TV crossover. Crisis on Infinite Planets?

Star Wars Lando

Lando

TBA

Writer: Justin Simien

The smoothest scoundrel in the galaxy is finally getting his own event series on Disney+. It’s currently unclear whether this series will follow the younger Lando played by Donald Glover or the original one played by Billy Dee Williams. Maybe it’ll star both?!
