Although the Skywalker Saga has drawn to a close (for now at least - it's not like we haven't heard that before), there is still plenty going on in our favourite galaxy far far away. As with our previous list, we'll be keeping this article updated with information about upcoming Star Wars movie and TV releases as the information becomes available.
Whether you are looking forward to seeing a new Star Wars spin-off movie at the cinema, a new live-action Star Wars show, or the latest Star Wars animated adventure on Disney+, we've got your back!
Last updated: January 2020.
Disney+ Star Wars shows coming soon
While Star Wars takes a break from the big screen following the release of The Rise of Skywalker, there's a lot going on over on the new Disney+ streaming service, and Lucasfilm are keen to continue the momentum that has been started from the successful launch of The Mandalorian in November 2019.
The Clone Wars Season 7 - Full series on Disney+ now!
The Clone Wars was a big hit from 2008 to 2014, with a feature length animated film and the series itself starting on Cartoon Network. When Lucasfilm was acquired by Disney the much loved series was put on indefinite hold leaving several threads dangling, such as the Siege of Mandalore and the unresolved issues between Ahsoka Tano and her former master, Anakin Skywalker. In 2018, showrunner Dave Filoni announced that The Clone Wars would return for its conclusion, and that The Clone Wars season 7 would be the final season of the show.
The Mandalorian Season 2 - October 2020
The Mandalorian launched with Disney+ in November 2019 and was touted as following a lone gunslinger across the "wild west" of the Star Wars universe, but it turned out to be so much more. With "Baby Yoda" stealing the hearts of fans and generating a thousand memes, it's no surprise that shortly after the end of the first season Jon Favreau announced that the Mandalorian would return to our screens soon. The October 2020 date was confirmed by Bob Iger during a quarterly earnings call in February.
Untitled Cassian Andor series - Expected 2021
Rogue One: A Star Wars Story was the first of the Star Wars spin-off, or "anthology" movies, and it proved to be a hit with fans in 2016. The film told the story of a band of rebels who stole the plans for the first Death Star. The Cassian Andor series announced in November 2018 will serve as a prequel to Rogue One and is said to be a "spy thriller" following the exploits of the titular shady rebel and his sidekick K-2SO before that fateful mission. Diego Luna and Alan Tudyk will return as their respective characters from Rogue One.
Untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi series - TBA
It was either the best kept secret or the worst kept secret in Star Wars, depending on your point of view. For years rumours circulated that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi, but it wasn't until October 2019 that anything was officially confirmed. Little is known about the series so far, but McGregor has said that we can expect to see how the former Jedi Master copes with the destruction of the Jedi Order and the betrayal of his closest friend.
On Star Wars Day 2020 it was confirmed that Leslye Headland will be showrunning a new Star Wars series. No further details were given aside from the fact that this is an additional series not previously confirmed.
Confirmed Star Wars movie releases
In April 2019 Disney confirmed the release dates for three new Star Wars movies, although no further details were given at the time. The status of these projects is currently unknown, and the information available has changed several times since then. We wouldn't be at all surprised if these dates got changed or the projects were reworked altogether.
On Star Wars Day 2020, it was revealed that Taika Waititi will co-write and direct a Star Wars feature film, but at the time of writing this it is unclear whether this is one of the below releases or in addition to them.
Untitled Star Wars movie - 16 Dec 2022
Bob Iger confirmed in April 2019 that this film would be by Game of Thrones producers David Benioff & DB Weiss, but they later left the project citing an increased workload due to contractual obligations with Netflix. No further details have been released. Given the pairs experience on the TV adaptation of Game of Thrones there were rumours that this was set to be something akin to the Knights of the Old Republic video game series. In April 2020, the date was reconfirmed on Disney's updated release schedule, modified due to the Covid-19 global pandemic.
Untitled Star Wars movie - 20 Dec 2024
Nothing is known about this project yet, although The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson was once said to be returning to Star Wars for a series of films, and that has as of yet not been confirmed to be cancelled. Disney's updated release schedule in April 2020 did not include this film, but it has also not been confirmed as cancelled.
Untitled Star Wars movie - 18 Dec 2026
Again, no details have been released for this project yet, so stay tuned and we'll update this article as we discover more information. Disney's updated release schedule in April 2020 did not include this film, but it has also not been confirmed as cancelled.
