This Thursday evening was very lively with the announcement by Disney of 10 new series from the ‘Star Wars’ universe, as well as new episodes from the second season of ‘The Mandalorian’ and three films from producer Lucasfilm! Come see what they are!
Lando Calrissian is back to the delight of fans! Although Donald Glover has not (yet) been confirmed in the lead role, fans will be able to enjoy the character in a new series entirely focused on him. The story is developed by Justin Simien, creator of the original Netflix series “Dear White People”.
‘Star Wars Visions’
“Star Wars” will win another animated series, consisting of ten independent short films, developed by major Japanese anime companies, which will offer a different aesthetic to the universe line developed by George Lucas.
The series will be created by Leslye Headland, responsible for the success of Netflix’s “Russian Doll” series. “ The Acolyte ” promises to be a series of mysterious thrillers, set in the last days of the Old High Republic and showing the dark secrets of a growing power on the dark side of the Force.
The series starring beloved character Ahsoka will be set in the same timeline as “The Mandalorian.” Directing will be in charge of Dave Filoni, with production from Jon Favreau and Rosario Dawson as ex-Jedi Togruta. The logo reveals the image of the “Mundo Entre Mundos” symbols, presented to the public in the animated series “Rebels”.
‘Rangers of the New Republic’
Another series that will run simultaneously in the timeline of “The Mandalorian”. The production will be done because of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni and the plot will probably (obviously!) Take place during the New Republic.
‘Obi Wan Kenobi’
Probably the most anticipated title in the Star Wars universe. Following D23’s confirmation of Ewan McGregor’s return as Obi-Wan, Hayden Christensen’s return as Darth Vader has been confirmed tonight! And we don’t know how to deal with this extremely valuable information! : O The series will take place ten years after the events of “Revenge of the Sith”, and stars Deborah Chow in the direction, who has already directed a few episodes of “The Mandalorian”.
‘Andor’ will once again bring Diego Luna in the role of Cassian Andor, the protagonist of ‘Rogue One’, and will address the life of this warrior before the rebellion. Other confirmed names include Stellan Skarsgard, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller and Genevieve O’Reilly as Mon Mothma. Production began in late November in London, and the Disney + premiere is slated for 2022.
“The bad lot”
We met again the unique clones of “The Bad Batch”. In the new series, fans will see how the galaxy developed after the end of the Clone Wars and the start of the Galactic Empire. Bad Batch was introduced in the 7th (and final) season of “The Clone Wars” and they are different clones from the rest of the military, each with a particular characteristic.
“A Story of Droids”
Disney is no fool and knows how to produce entertainment that sells dolls. So here is an animated series created by Lucasfilm Animation and the ILM visual effects team, which will tell the story of a new yet unknown hero, who will be guided by the beloved fan duo C-3PO and R2- D2.
‘Star Wars Rogue Squadron’
It will be the next feature film in the Star Wars universe and will be directed by none other than Patty Jenkins, responsible for the new ‘Wonder Woman’ films. The story will introduce a new generation of star pilots and tell how they will get their “wings”. Patty Jenkins is the daughter of an F4 fighter pilot and says she is very excited about the opportunity to make a Star Wars movie about pilots. The film is expected to launch on the platform in December 2023.
Film by Taika Waititi
Disney has also announced that it is developing a new Star Wars movie, directed by Oscar-winning director Taika Waititi (“ Jojo Rabbit ”), which has yet to be titled. However, in the words of Kathleen Kennedy, it will be something “new, unexpected and unique”. Will take!
Producer Lucasfilm also announced the development of new versions of the films “Willow – In the Land of Magic”, “Indiana Jones” (with Harrison Ford again in the lead role) and the mysterious “Children of Blood and Bone”.
