In today's Disney Investor Day call, it has been confirmed that a new Disney+ show featuring Rosario Dawson's Ahsoka Tano is in development.

Due to the early stages of development, we have no timeline on when we can expect to see the new show launch, but it was confirmed that the show would be set after the events of Star Wars: Rebels but before she encounters Din Djarin and Grogu in The Mandalorian season 2.

As fans of the togruta former Jedi would expect, Dave Filoni will serve as creator and executive producer for the new show. Filoni handled Ahsoka's live-action debut in The Mandalorian and is certainly no stranger to the character having executive produced The Clone Wars and Rebels.

The show will also tie in to another new series, Rangers of the New Republic, with which it will apparently have a climactic crossover.

Ahsoka is expected to return with her own show in 2022.

Seemingly coming out of nowhere, the Disney 2020 Investor's Day call has revealed that the next Star Wars spin-off movie will be Rogue Squadron, from Wonder Woman 1984 director Patty Jenkins.

As you would expect, there are very few details available right now, but long time fans and those that have delved into the Expanded Universe will be well aware of the exploits of the legendary Rogue Squadron, founded by Luke Skywalker after the Battle of Yavin, and spawning a myriad of novels, comics, and video games over the years.

Rogue Squadron is due to hit theatres Christmas 2023.

A new trailer for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order entitled "Cal's Mission" has been revealed, and appropriately teases some of the trials that Cal Kestis will face in his journey to become a Jedi.

After inadvertently revealing his latent Force powers, former padawan Cal finds himself on the run from the Empire's Inquisitorius - an elite special unit tasked with hunting down and destroying any remaining Jedi that managed to survive the purge. The trailer shows Cal and BD-1 teaming up with a band of outlaws, including Cere Junda and Greez Dritus, to fight back against the oppression of the Galactic Empire. 

Cal appears to be searching for "something very precious to the Empire", a search that will take him to several planets with dangerous foes and Imperial pursuers hunting him down every step of the way. Check out "Cal's Mission" below:

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order is released on 15 November 2019.

Kevin Feige, the mastermind behind the box office success of the Marvel Cinematic Universe has been drafted in to help create a new era in Star Wars storytelling, it has been announced.

According to reports, Feige had discussed a role within the Star Wars franchise during meetings with Kathleen Kennedy and Disney Studios executives earlier this summer. At present Kathleen Kennedy remains at the helm of Lucasfilm, and there appear to be no plans to change this, but bringing Feige into the fold surely signals that Disney are prepared to bring out the big guns to ensure future success for the franchise post The Rise of Skywalker. 

Feige's impressive track record at Marvel include some of the highest-grossing movies ever, including last year's Avenger's: Endgame. It is unknown how much involvement Feige will have in the already announced titles, such as Rian Johnson's Star Wars Trilogy (which news has been worryingly quiet about lately) and the project currently in progress by Game of Thrones TV adaptation creators David Benioff & DB Weiss.
