    The Mandalorian season 2

    The Mandalorian season 2 is released today on Disney+.
  2. 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.
  3. 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 - 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 - 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, 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. Untitled Star Wars movie - 18 Dec 2026 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.
  4. Taika Waititi may soon be helming his own Star Wars project, if the latest rumours are to be believed. According to Hollywood Reporter, the Thor: Ragnarok director is in early talks with Lucasfilm regarding a future Star Wars movie. Waititi has already made an impression on Star Wars with his portrayal of bounty hunting assassin droid IG-11 in the Disney+ Star Wars television series The Mandalorian, as well as directing the final episode of the first season, overseen by executive producer and fellow Marvel alumnus Jon Favreau. It is unknown what project Waititi may be being sought for, but with Star Wars movies scheduled for 2022, 2024, and 2026, and no directors confirmed after the exist of Game of Thrones showrunners David Benioff and DB Weiss, Disney and Lucasfilm are sure to be on the hunt for talent to keep these projects on track (or not too severely delayed, at least). It is also a possibility that this could be related to the Kevin Feige Star Wars movie that was confirmed to be in early stages of development last year, or if this would be an entirely new project. Feige's successes with the Marvel Cinematic Universe singled him out as a suitable candidate for the interconnected canon of Star Wars, and it seems only natural that other directors he has worked with would also come on board. Although clearly popular with the decision makers at Disney and Lucasfilm, Waititi is in high demand; with a live action adaptation of the anime Akira, and Thor: Love and Thunder already lined up, it's unclear when a large project in the Star Wars universe could fit in to his schedule.
  5. 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:
  6. A sneak peek at upcoming Disney+ TV series The Mandalorian will be shown at the Disney D23 Expo, it has been revealed. The presentation on 23 August at will feature appearances from both Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni plus other special guests. Footage from The Mandalorian was previously shown at Star Wars Celebration Chicago earlier this year but was not officially released you the public outside the event. It is expected that this time around the footage will be released, giving many people their first real look at the show, especially as the show is due to premiere with the launch of Disney+ later this year. In other news, Favreau revealed on Jimmy Kimmel Live that he had already started writing the second series of The Mandalorian, adding that he's "having a blast". The Mandalorian stars Pedro Pascal as the titular bounty hunter, and is set in the period after the classic Star Wars trilogy, and will be released on 12 August 2019 on Disney+.

    New images from The Mandalorian

    The first season of The Mandalorian will be available to Disney Plus subscribers as soon as it launches on 12 November 2019, it has been announced. A second series has already been ordered by Lucasfilm. New images (see below) have also been released, and attendees at Celebration Chicago were treated to some behind the scenes footage and an exclusive clip of the Jon Favreau live-action Star Wars TV show, that were cut from the live stream, but there was no official trailer shown. The Mandalorian follows a mysterious lone gunfighter (played by Pedro Pascal) on the outer reaches of the galaxy, about five years after the Battle of Endor seen in Star Wars: Episode VI - Return of the Jedi. The titular character's true name is unknown, and he is said to be of "questionable moral character". Gina Carano will play a former Rebel shock trooper named Kara Dune, with Carl Weathers portraying Greef Marka who heads up a guild of bounty hunters. Werner Herzog appears to be some kind of Imperial administrator who hires the Mandalorian for a mission. Other supporting cast members include Giancarlo Esposito, Emily Swallow, Omid Abtahi, and Nick Nolte. The show is said to have a Western feel to it and Favreau has said he would include elements from other parts of the Star Wars universe such as the Star Wars: The Clone Wars television series, and has he has also taken some inspiration from the Star Wars Legends expanded universe.
  8. 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.
