And while we’re on the subject of Order 66 survivors, Cal Kestis is returning to the next leg of his adventure five years after the events of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order.

You can watch this novel a week before Jedi Survivor premieres on March 7, 2023.

And speaking of Jedi Academy… yes, it’s a bit lengthy, but Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures is a new series that focuses on young people from all over the world. high republic era. Keep in mind, this program is for young kids, kindergarten through elementary school, so please minimize sharp takedowns about how this show breaks the norm by including an Ewok teddy bear or something. Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures launches on Disney+ in the spring of 2023.
Star Wars: Vision Vol. 2
Star Wars: Visions, an anthology series of nine animated shorts produced by seven Japanese animation studios, is back with a second episode.

Star Wars: Ahsoka
After seeing Rosario Dawson debut a live-action version of a fan-favorite brute-force user in The Mandalorian, fans have been wanting more Ahsoka Tano. That of course includes fans of the Star Wars animated show Rebels, especially since it has been revealed that Ahsoka Season 1 will feature the return of the Sabine Wren characters, Ezra Bridger and (so far unofficial) Hera Syndulla and Chopper. Hayden Christensen as Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, Ahsoka’s mentor turned worst villain in the galaxy. Every clash between these two characters so far has been equally intense, so we’re looking forward to the live action. Ahsoka doesn’t have an official release date yet, but it’s slated for late 2023 on Disney+.
Star Wars: The Skeleton Crew
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is an upcoming new live-action TV series – and mystery – starring Jude Law. published by Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau at Star Wars Celebration 2022, it seems the closest analogy to the show is calling it the Stranger Things of the Star Wars universe. Seriously, not much is known about the show yet, only that it’s an Amblin-style coming-of-age story about a group of kids lost in space around the time of The Mandalorian, and it was originally codenamed “Rodeo Grammar,” it’s a pretty excellent Simpsons reference at least. Creator Jon Watts (director of the movie Spider-Man Tom Holland) revealed only the following: “It’s a story about their journey trying to find their way home. It stars four kids, but here we go. not a show for children.” Star Wars: Goonies, eh, Skeleton Crew will be released sometime in 2023 on Disney+.
Looking to the future Star Wars beyond 2023
Andor: Part 2
After completing what many of us call one of the best things in the Star Wars universe, Andor Season 2 is definitely something we’re eager to see. Season 1 gave us not only Cassian Andor’s path to the Rebel Alliance, but also the Alliance’s path to becoming a necessity for those against the Empire through the story of characters like Mon Mothma. and Luther Rael. While Season 1 follows the process a year, five years before Rogue One, Season 2 is expected to be much more detailed and introduce the beloved powerful droid K2-SO. With Andor Season 1’s very high critical and audience ratings, we can’t wait for more about host Tony Gilroy’s slow-paced Star Wars storytelling. Andor Season 2 doesn’t have a release date yet, but it’s likely to arrive in 2024 on Disney+ at the earliest.
