  1. Ewan McGregor has confirmed that filming for the Obi-Wan Kenobi series for Disney+ will begin in March 2021. The reveal came during McGregor's appearance on the BBC's Graham Norton Show this Friday. The series is a six-episode limited series set in the time when Kenobi was exiled on Tatooine between the events of Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, 11 years before the Battle of Yavin. Production has been delayed due to the Covid-19 outbreak, and although no release date has yet been announced it is expected to premiere on the Disney+ streaming service in late 2021 or early 2022.
  2. 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: July 2020. Disney+ Star Wars shows coming soon There's a lot going on over on the new Disney+ streaming service, with Lucasfilm keen to continue the momentum that has been started from the successful launch of The Mandalorian in November 2019, and The Clone Wars season 7 in February 2020. It's clear that Disney and Lucasfilm see Diesney+ as a big part of the future of Star Wars storytelling. The Mandalorian Season 2 - 30 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. Star Wars: The Bad Batch - 2021 The Bad Batch is an animated series following the Bad Batch of clones introduced in season 7 of The Clone Wars as they take on the role of mercenaries in the aftermath of the the Clone Wars. The series was announced in July 2020 and will see many returning producers and crew members from various other Star Wars television projects, including Dave Filoni, Athena Portillo, Brad Rau, Jennifer Corbett, Carrie Beck, and Josh Rime. Untitled Cassian Andor series - Expected 2021 (unconfirmed) 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. Unknown series 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. With the Covid-19 pandemic disrupting production schedules and Disney and Lucasfilm switching focus towards new Disney+ content, we wouldn't be at all surprised if these dates got changed or the projects were reworked altogether. Unknown projects In 2017 it was announced that The Last Jedi director Rian Johnson would be heading up his own Star Wars trilogy. While this plan does seem to have been shelved following concerns over Star Wars fatigue at the box office and the mixed reception to Johnson's own contribution to the Skywalker Saga, it has never explicitly been cancelled. Until Disney and Lucasfilm stop being so tight-lipped about what happened to the trilogy we'll include it here for clarity. In September 2019 it was widely reported that Marvel Studios head Kevin Feige was on board for a Star Wars project, but no further details have been announced so it is unclear where this fits in with what we already know. 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 - 22 Dec 2023 Originally scheduled for 16 December 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 and the following July it was announced that all Star Wars movie releases would be pushed back by one year. Untitled Star Wars movie - 19 Dec 2025 Nothing is known about 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. It was originally scheduled for a 20 Dec 2024 release but was pushed back due to the Covid-19 pandemic. Untitled Star Wars movie - 17 Dec 2027 Again, no details have been released for this project yet. Disney's updated release schedule in April 2020 did not include this film, but it has also not been confirmed as cancelled. It was originally scheduled for a 19 Dec 2026 release but was pushed back due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

    The Mandalorian season 2 trailer

    The official trailer for The Mandalorian season 2 has been released ahead of the new debut of the new series on 30 October.

    The Mandalorian season 2

    The Mandalorian season 2 is released today on Disney+.
  5. Last year The Mandalorian helped push Star Wars to a new audience on the Disney+ steaming platform, and the service has finally revealed that the premiere date for the highly anticipated second series will be 30 October 2020. The previous series ended with Mando escaping from the clutches of the Empire with a promise to safeguard The Child, affectionately known to fans as Baby Yoda. Little is known about the second series, but part of the story arc is expected to revolve around the legendary Darksaber, which somehow ended up in the hands of Moff Gideon. It has also been rumoured that Temuera Morrison, who portrayed the bounty hunter Jango Fett in the prequels may make a cameo appearance as his cloned "son", the long time fan favourite Boba Fett who first introduced us to Mandalorian armour in the Star Wars Holiday Special and The Empire Strikes Back.
  6. Kessel Run Podcast has announced that Solo: A Star Wars Story's Donald Glover is to reprise the role of Lando Calrissian for a new Disney+ series. The rumour, which has not been confirmed but Disney or Lucasfilm, puts Lando as the lead character and mentions a possible title for the series being the Calrissian Chronicles, which are also referenced in-universe as Lando's self-narrated record of his adventures. During Solo we briefly see Lando dropping references to the former Star Wars expanded universe novels by L Neil Smith, which were grouped under the Lando Calrissian Adventures banner and would be an ideal source for any adventure series featuring Lando. So, will we be seeing Lando Calrissian visit the Starcave of ThonBoka? Perhaps, but the system of Oseon and the Mindharp of Sharu have already been absorbed into canon so it's entirely feasible that we could see these adventures realised in a Disney+ series. The series may even be the unknown series announced on Star Wars Day earlier this year, which was said at the time to be lead by Leslye Headland who previously co-created the Netflix drama-comedy series Russian Doll. We will watch this rumour with great interest.
  7. Lucasfilm has today announced a new Star Wars animated series for the Disney+ 2021 lineup. According to Lucasfilm, the new series entitled Star Wars: The Bad Batch will be a spin-off of the critically acclaimed animated show Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and will follow the eponymous Bad Batch of clones in the aftermath of the Clone Wars. The Bad Batch were introduced in the final season of The Clone Wars, which premiered on Disney+ earlier this year. The Bad Batch were a squad of experimental clones with very different training from their fellow clonetrooper comrades, who turn to the mercenary life after the end of the Clone Wars. The show will be executive produced by a host of Star Wars alumni including Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo (The Clone Wars, Rebels), Brad Rau (Rebels, Resistance) and Jennifer Corbett (Resistance). Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, Rebels) will also serve as co-executive producer, with Josh Rimes (Restistance) joining as a producer. You can read the official announcement here.
  8. Finally we have some news regarding the upcoming Disney+ series following Rogue One: A Star Wars Story's Cassian Andor. As we already know, Diego Luna is reprising his role as Cassian Andor with Alan Tudyk joining him as K-2SO, but a new returning cast member has been confirmed in the shape of Genevieve O'Reilly. O'Reilly previously portrayed Mon Mothma in Rogue One and in a scene that was famously left on the digital cutting room floor of Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith. Stellan Skarsgård, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller are also joining the cast in unspecified co-starring roles. The co-writer of Rogue One, Tony Gilroy, will be returning to pick up the reigns as showrunner from Stephen Schiff as well as writing and directing. Dan Gilroy (Nightcrawler), Beau Willimon (House of Cards), and Stephen Schiff (The Americans) will also write episodes for the series. This news comes via StarWars.com who have also indicated that as of yet there has been no announcement regarding a release date. Production on the series has been hit by the outbreak of COVID-19, but visual effects artist Neal Scanlan recently revealed that six weeks worth of pre-production had been completed prior to the lockdown.
  9. A new trailer for the upcoming seventh season of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has landed, giving us a glimpse of what we can expect fro the long awaited follow-up to the groundbreaking Star Wars animated series that has been on hiatus since 2014. The new trailer reveals that the series has caught up to the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith but falls short of showing us Order 66. Star Wars: The Clone Wars season 7 premiers exclusively on Disney+ on 21 February. Check out the trailer below and let us know what you think!
  10. Disney are reportedly eyeing up a new Star Wars animated series for the Disney+ streaming service, and it will take the form of a sequel to the acclaimed Disney XD show, Star Wars Rebels, according to First Order Transmissions. They also report that Rebels and The Clone Wars producer/director Dave Filoni will be returning in some capacity. Star Wars Rebels spans a period of time from 5 BBY up until after the events of Return of the Jedi, and ended in March 2018 after four seasons. The finale saw the crew of the Ghost face off against Thrawn, and ended with Ahsoka Tano and Sabine joining forces to search for a missing Ezra Bridger. All of the main characters of the show had a definite resolution to their arcs, with the exception of Ezra, with Dave Filoni remaining tight-lipped on the young Jedi's fate. With Star Wars: The Clone Wars returning for a seventh and final season in February 2020, exclusively on Disney+ and predicted to be a big success for the fledgling streaming service, it's a sure bet that Lucasfilm will be looking to bolster their Star Wars offerings. For those not in the know, The Clone Wars was an animated Star Wars film and Cartoon Network animated series, introduced Ahsoka Tano as the padawan of Anakin Skywalker, and developed their relationship and her eventual exit from the Jedi Order. As a fan favourite, Ahsoka's reappearance in Star Wars Rebels was met with praise. In The Rise of Skywalker, Ahsoka's voice is heard by Rey as she channels the power of the Jedi, appearing to confirm that she had become one with the Force by the time of the sequel trilogy, however Dave Filoni has since teased that we have not seen the last of Ahsoka, and perhaps The Clone Wars season 7 will not be the last time we do.
  11. Hot on the heels of the final episode of The Mandalorian, series showrunner Jon Favreau took to Twitter to confirm that the second season of the hit Disney+ Star Wars TV show will be coming in Fall 2020. The Mandalorian, Pedro Pascal, and his costar, Baby Yoda The Child, are both set to return in series two, with Carl Weathers set to direct an episode and Favreau himself also stepping behind the camera this time around, having been unable to direct an episode of the first series due to his commitments to Disney's Lion King remake. Favreau tweet also teased the appearance of a Gamorrean for season two:
  12. The second official trailer for The Mandalorian has landed, and the hype continues to build as we see new scenes, creatures and ships that make the new Star Wars TV show look every bit a part of the Star Wars universe. Werner Herzog's character's monologue provides the background for this trailer, with Pedro Pascal's finally speaking the first words we have heard from the titular Mandalorian. The Mandalorian will be available to DIsney+ subscribers on 12 November 2019. Yeah? Good.
  13. With Kathleen Kennedy recently revealing that the scripts for the upcoming live-action Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series are already finished, the main man himself has finally started talking; and it turns out Ewan McGregor is pretty good at keeping secrets, even when speculation was at a fever pitch. It’s a massive relief. Because for four years, I’ve been having to lie to people about it. Ewan McGregor During an interview, McGregor is reported to have revealed that his series won't start shooting until summer 2020, and that there will be a total of six hour-long episodes. McGregor intends to play the role of the erstwhile Jedi Master closer to Sir Alec Guinness' portrayal of the character in the original Star Wars trilogy, and at the age of 48 he will be pretty close to Kenobi's canonical age in this series, which is set around 11 years before the events of the first movie. The Obi-Wan Kenobi TV show will likely not hit the Disney+ streaming service until 2021, but there is plenty more in the pipeline to keep Star Wars fans happy until then.
  14. Deborah Chow has been chosen to direct the upcoming Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi TV series, it has been announced. The announcement came via the official Star Wars Instagram, and later confirmed via an interview with Variety. Chow's TV credits include Better Call Saul, the adaptation of Neil Gaiman's American Gods novels, and Netflix/Marvel show Jessica Jones, as well as already having a hand in upcoming show The Mandalorian. We really wanted to select a director who is able to explore both the quiet determination and rich mystique of Obi-Wan in a way that folds seamlessly into the Star Wars saga. Based on her phenomenal work developing our characters in The Mandalorian, I'm absolutely confident Deborah is the right director to tell this story. Kathleen Kennedy Ewan McGregor will be reprising the role of Obi-Wan, which he made his own in the Star Wars prequels. Not much is known about the show, except that it is set eight years after the events of Star Wars: Episode III - Revenge of the Sith, which puts it at around 11 years before the original Star Wars movie. The Obi-Wan TV series, which will be a Disney+ exclusive, doesn't have a release date yet, but is expected to begin shooting next year.

    The Mandalorian

    The Mandalorian is a TV series set after the fall of the Empire, featuring an all-new cast of characters. It was announced by Disney CEO Bob Iger in November 2017, and will air on the new streaming service Disney+ in late 2019. The first series will have 8 episodes, and a second series is in production.
  16. After what seems like an eternity of waiting, the first official trailer for The Mandalorian is here. It has been almost 15 years since fans were first promised a live-action Star Wars TV show, and this new show from Jon Favreau looks set to fulfil the bargain when it launches along with Disney+ this November. The trailer was revealed at the D23, and confirms previously speculated details, such as the shows setting between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens. While the Mandalorian remains his silent mysterious self, we do see a few snippets of action, including firefight with IG-11, a new character based on everybody's favourite assassin-droid-turned-bounty-hunter IG-88. The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular Mandalorian, supported by MMA fighter and actress Gina Carano as Cara Dune, Carl Weathers as Greef, as well as a host of other famed actors. Ming-Na Wen (Mulan, Marvel's Agents of SHIELD) has also been added to the list of cast, after being announced by Disney chief Bob Iger. Wen has had her eye on a role in Star Wars for a while now, but it is still unknown what role she will play in The Mandalorian.
  17. The untitled Obi-Wan Kenobi live-action TV show is currently in production for Disney+. It is due to start filming in 2020. The show was officially announced, along with the news that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role of Kenobi, at D23 in August 2019, after months of speculation. It is set 8 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith, placing it around the same time as the events of Solo.
  18. The return of Ewan McGregor to the role of Obi-Wan Kenobi has been rumoured and speculated about for years, and now several news outlets, including Variety and The Guardian, are reporting that fans will finally get their wish. The role of the Jedi Knight made famous by Sir Alec Guinness first became McGregor's in 1999's Star Wars: Episode I - The Phantom Menace and he continued in the role throughout the Star Wars prequels. Kenobi was previously all but confirmed to return in a standalone movie before the spin-off anthology films were canned, following the underwhelming (according to Disney execs) performance of Solo: A Star Wars Story. The new word on the grapevine is that Disney has commissioned a TV series that will develop the story of Obi-Wan, with McGregor signing on for his return. The show would presumably be set during the dark times between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope, and follow the exiled Kenobi on Tatooine. The series would of course find a home on the Disney+ streaming service which launches later this year, and would sit alongside The Mandalorian and the as yet untitled Cassian Andor series. No concrete details have been revealed yet, but with the Disney D23 Expo just around the corner, we are sure to hear something very soon, but until we see Ewan McGregor walk out on stage with a cheeky "hello there!" I certainly wouldn't blame anybody for taking this news with a hefty pinch of salt.
  19. Diego Luna, who played rebel spy Cassian Andor in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story has hinted that filming on his character's live action Star Wars TV show is due to start filming very soon. During an interview with Mexican news source El Siglo de Torreon, Luna confirmed that he has already received scripts for the series and is expecting filming to start "soon". It was previously reported that filming for this series would be starting in October this year which could still fit within the definition of "soon", but this news could also mean that production is starting earlier than expected. The show is set to be a rousing spy thriller which will fill in new details about Cassian Andor and the rebellion prior to the events of Rogue One, with Stephen Schiff (The Americans) on board as Executive Producer and showrunner. It's expected that the Cassian Andor TV show will release exclusively on the Disney+ streaming service in 2021. Meanwhile, the first Star Wars live action TV show The Mandalorian is currently in production and will release with Disney+ in Novemeber 2019.
  20. An "insider" has reportedly informed We Got This Covered that there is a Boba Fett TV show being developed for Disney+. Further rumours surrounding the project infer that Ewan McGregor would reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi for this series. As with all rumours we are taking this with a hefty pinch of salt, after all Disney are already working on The Mandalorian which will launch with Disney+ in November this year. Those of us who have been around the rumour mill for a while might remember the whisperings of a young Boba Fett appearing in the ultimately cancelled Star Wars Underworld project. At that time Daniel Logan was apparently set to reprise his role of the up and coming bounty hunter, but Logan is now in his 30s. In October 2018 it was reported that a Boba Fett anthology film had been shelved due to the "poor box office performance" of Solo. Is there room for a Boba Fett TV show as well as The Mandalorian? I'm not sure there is. It's entirely possible that these rumours are actually leaks from The Mandalorian, given the similar premise, but like a lot of rumours it is also likely that it could just be wishful thinking on the part of the fandom.
  21. Principle filming for The Mandalorian has finished, according to the folks over at Disney. There is still no word on a release date for the new Star Wars TV show, which is set between Return of the Jedi and The Force Awakens, but new information is expected to be revealed at Star Wars Celebration in April. Pedro Pascal (Game of Thrones) is playing the titular role of the Mandalorian, with supporting roles from Nick Nolte, Werner Herzog, Gina Carano, Giancarlo Esposito (Breaking Bad), and Emily Swallow (Supernatural). Little else is currently known about the show, but producers previously teased that classic trilogy characters R5-D4 and IG-88 will make an appearance. The Mandalorian debuts on the Disney+ streaming service, later this year.
