How to be in the new star wars movie
star wars is in a very strange place right now. Disney has already completed its own Skywalker trilogy and closed that book on that story, but there are still tons of Star Wars projects on the way to theaters and streaming, with Disney teasing even more in its 2022 D23 expo.
Disney’s next Star Wars lineup goes back in time to the High Republic and may even pass the Skywalker Saga in the timeline one day. There are shows about new characters and old favorites, and plenty of shows to help us better understand the events of one Star Wars movie or another. And while some don’t have formal release dates yet, there are already teasers for them, like The Mandalorian Season 3. When it comes to new movies, Disney is a bit quieter, but there are at least a few on the far distant horizon.
With so much planned for the Star Wars universe, here’s a look at all the shows we know are coming to Disney Plus, the movies hitting theaters, and when you can expect to see each and every one of them. .
star wars: andor: September. 21
This spin-off of a spin-off will follow Cassian Andor, featured in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and the mostly heroic spies of the Rebellion as they undermine the Empire and plot its ultimate destruction. Andor will bring back Diego Luna as the main character, along with Stellan Skarsgård, Fiona Shaw and Anton Valensi.
Tales of the Jedi: Oct. 26
Tales of the Jedi, a Star Wars animated anthology series from the creators of The Clone Wars, is coming to Disney Plus on October 10. 26. The series will be divided into six shorts that follow the Jedi from the prequel trilogy, including Ahsoka (who will have her own show in 2023), Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, Qui-Gon Jinn, Yoda, Mace Windu, and more. . The anthology series will feature Liam Neeson returning as Qui-Gon, as well as Ashley Eckstein, who voiced Ahsoka in the previous animated projects.

The animated series The Bad Batch is coming back for a second season at the beginning of 2023 with a two-episode premiere. The exploits of the Clone Force 99 are expected to directly follow the end of season 1.

This series will follow Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano, but it’s not exactly clear where the story might take her. We do know that the series will include Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader, so it’s very likely a prequel to the events of The Mandalorian and Book of Boba Fett — since Vader is dead by then — but that’s about all we know, and it’s still just a guess. But as of Sept. 2022, Ezra Bridger will be there, played by Eman Esfandi.
the mandalorian season 3
technically, the mandalorian season 2 happened in 2020, but you could be forgiven for forgetting, considering the boba fett book was basically the mandalorian season 2.5. but the official third season is on its way to bring us more adventures with grogu and din djarin.
taika waititi’s star wars movie
the fact that this movie is directed by taika waititi and co-written by waititi and krysty wilson-cairns (1917) is a whole list of things we really know about it. waititi said in the summer of 2021 that the film has a story, makes sense, and is otherwise still being written. As for when it might take place or come out, we’ll just have to wait and see. With Rogue Squadron being moved back, Waititi’s film will be the first Star Wars movie to hit theaters since The Rise of Skywalker.
star wars: rogue squadron
Perhaps the upcoming Star Wars movie of which we know the most, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron will be directed by Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman), who described her desire to turn it into the “greatest fighter pilot movie of all time.” While this movie was originally slated for release in December 2023, scheduling conflicts led to a delay and pushed the movie off of Disney’s calendar for that year. However since then, Jenkins as reportedly moved a few things around in order to focus more on Rogue Squadron and the upcoming Wonder Woman 3.

The head of Disney’s Golden Goose, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kevin Feige is also set to try to bring his success to Star Wars sometime in the future, but we have no idea when or if it will even happen. Kathleen Kennedy’s last update on the subject came in a Vanity Fair story from May, when she said, “I would love to see what movie he might come up with. […] But right now, no, there isn’t anything specifically.”
