We all know that Disney has always been committed to developing more Star Wars content, especially because the franchise already has many fans ready to consume anything related to it. In that regard, it would be an understatement to say that Star Wars makes money and can generate profits fast enough for Disney. And that’s why Disney and Lucasfilm already have a full slate of movies and shows that will be released in the future.
Of course, many upcoming Star Wars movies and shows have already been announced beforehand. Meanwhile, some are continuations of the show that we already have. So, with that said, let’s look at all of the upcoming Star Wars movies and shows that we know about based on recent announcements.
1. ‘Ahsoka’ (2023)
The next Star Wars movie that is set to see its release soon is ‘Ahsoka,’ which will tell the story of Ahsoka Tano and the next chapter in the journey of this Jedi. Introduced as a supporting character in ‘Star Wars: The Clone Wars’ in 2008, Ahsoka has since become her character and is now one of the most popular characters in the storyline of Star Wars.
Rosario Dawson reprised her role as the live-action version of Ahsoka in what seems to be a continuation of ‘Star Wars: Rebels’ in the upcoming ‘Ahsoka’ series because we are set to see a reunion of the Spectres that we saw in ‘Rebels.’ Created by Dave Filoni, ‘Ahsoka’ should have that patented Filoni charm that made ‘The Clone Wars’ and ‘Rebels’ so popular among Star Wars fans.
2. ‘Star Wars: Skeleton Crew’ (late 2023 or early 2024)
We know there are supposed to be several different shows set during the same time as ‘The Mandalorian,’ and ‘Skeleton Crew’ is set to be the fourth series that takes place during this same timeline, around 9 ABY. And it is believed that the characters ‘Skeleton Crew’ will be included in the Mando-verse movie released in the future.
‘Skeleton Crew’ is directed by Jon Watts and is set to star Jude Law and a set of young characters. At this point, not much is known about this series. But it seems like it will be a series similar to the 80s Amblin movies, such as ‘The Goonies.’
3. ‘Andor’ Season 2 (2024)
We already know that ‘Andor’ would have two seasons that will fully explain the events that led to Cassian Andor becoming a Rebel. Season 1 was a massive success; many fans believe it is the best Star Wars series in recent memory. And season 2 is set to continue the same success that season 1 enjoyed.
‘Andor’ season 2 should have the same kind of serious tone that season 1 had. Season 1 was a game-changing series exploring a different side of the Star Wars galaxy with darker and more serious characters than the usual lighthearted Star Wars storylines we’ve seen. And it is this dark and compelling tone that makes this series one of the greatest of all time.
4. ‘Star Wars: The Acolyte’ (2024)
‘The Acolyte’ is looking to take to a timeline that takes place farther back in time compared to all of the other Starr Wars movies and series we’ve seen (not counting Young Jedi Adventures). This series is set during the final days of the High Republic era and will be more of a mystery than the usual action-adventure storylines we’ve seen in Star Wars.
There were already scenes from ‘The Acolyte’ shown in the recent Star Wars Celebration event in 2023, and it seems like it will focus on the story of a mysterious Sith warrior that a Jedi Master and Padawan duo needs to learn more about. And from what we’ve heard, this series is set to have more lightsaber scenes than any other Star Wars movie or series.
5. ‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Season 3 (2024)
After two successful seasons in the books, ‘The Bad Batch’ will end with its third season, which will likely be released in 2024. We know that the story of this series takes place during the first few years of the Empire, as the members of the Bad Batch are looking to start life anew after leaving the Empire.
Of course, after such a tragic ending in season 2, season 3 will likely allow us to see the ultimate fate of the members of the Bad Batch. And season 3 will also likely reveal what the Empire has in store for the remaining clones that are no longer of any use to them now that the Stormtrooper program is well underway.
6. Untitled Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy Star Wars movie (release date unknown)
Back in the 2023 Star Wars Celebration Event, we learned that Lucasfilm will be developing three more Star Wars movies that will be standalone films and will not continue the usual episodic title of the mainline movies. Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy will direct one such movie and see Daisy Ridley reprising her role as Rey.
The storyline of this movie is still unknown, but we do know that the plan is for this movie to take place years after the events of ‘Star Wars Episode IX: The Rise of Skywalker.’ In that regard, it is set to allow us to see what the future holds for Rey, the Jedi Order, and the entire Star Wars storyline moving forward.
7. ‘Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi’ Season 2 (release date unknown)
The first season of ‘Tales of the Jedi’ was a six-part series that told different stories regarding Count Dooku and Ahsoka Tano. These episodes were meant to fill a few holes in their stories and let us learn more about their pasts. And fans loved the six-part series so much that Dave Filoni decided to create a second season.
We don’t know when season 2 will be out or which characters will be featured. But from what we know about the whole point of ‘Tales of the Jedi,’ season 2 will likely shed more light on unheralded Jedi characters that we’ve met during the events of ‘The Clone Wars’ and the prequel movies.
8. ‘The Mandalorian’ Season 4 (release date unknown)
Fans were already happy about the ending of season 3 of ‘The Mandalorian,’ as some were content with this story ending right then and there. But the fact is that the story of ‘The Mandalorian’ is going to continue, especially because it is still Lucasfilm’s most successful Star Wars series.
We know Jon Favreau already knows the story of season 4 because he has outlined it already. There are also rumors that ‘The Mandalorian’ was supposed to have five seasons. Whatever the case, there is also a rumor that season 4 might be a feature-length film due to the recent writer strikes. So, with that said, we aren’t sure about the fate of season 4 of ‘The Mandalorian.’
9. Untitled Dave Filoni Star Wars movie (release date unknown)
Dave Filoni announced during the 2023 Star Wars Celebration event that he will be directing one of the three Star Wars movies released in the next three years. This movie will be set during the New Republic era and will be the one to serve as the conclusion to all of the different series that take place during this timeline.
Of course, the shows we are talking about are ‘The Mandalorian,’ ‘The Book of Boba Fett,’ ‘Ahsoka,’ and ‘The Skeleton Crew.’ This movie should serve as the Avengers film of the Mando-verse and will bridge the events that will lead to the wars between the First Order and the Resistance during the timeline of the sequel trilogy. And that means that the rise of the First Order and Snoke, as well as the resurrection of Palpatine, might be covered by this movie.
10. Untitled James Mangold Star Wars movie (release date unknown)
The third movie announced during the 2023 Star Wars Celebration event will be directed by James Mangold. Those three movies are set in different timelines, and this one will be set thousands of years before the Skywalker Saga. And that means this will be the farthest that the Star Wars timeline has ever gone.
That’s because this untitled James Mangold movie will focus on the first Jedi in the history of the Jedi. This means it should take place around 25,000 years before the Skywalker Saga. The movie is also set to tackle the origins of the Force and its true nature as a cosmic energy field that governs the fate of the galaxy.
11. Untitled Taika Waititi Star Wars movie (release date unknown)
We know that Taika Waititi, who directed parts 3 and 4 of the ‘Thor’ movies of the MCU, has been working on his own Star Wars movie. Other than that, we don’t know anything else about this movie or what it will be about. But the thing about Waititi is that he is known for his brand of comedy, which means that we might expect this movie to be comedic instead of the more serious tone we often see in Star Wars projects.
12. ‘Lando’ (release date unknown)
It was back in 2020 that Disney and Lucasfilm announced the spinoff ‘Lando’ series. However, other than the fact that we know that Donald Glover will reprise his role as the younger version of Lando Calrissian, we don’t know the status of this film. We aren’t even sure if it will continue or if Disney has canceled it. The thing is that Disney has been open about canceling projects as of late due to the recent strikes.
If this series becomes a reality, we know it will likely take place before the original trilogy when Lando was still younger. That’s because Donald Glover was tapped to work as ‘Lando’ in this series.
13. Shawn Levy’s Star Wars movie (release date unknown)
Another movie that we know little to nothing about is Shawn Levy’s Star Wars movie, set to have a “big heart,” in the words of the director himself. Of course, we don’t know anything about this movie or when it will be released. The status is also up in the air because there is no confirmation whether or not it will be happening.
14. ‘The Book of Boba Fett’ Season 2 (status unknown)
‘The Book of Boba Fett’ was originally supposed to be a mini-series. Of course, the first season focused on the story of Boba Fett after he survived the Sarlacc Pit and retrieved his armor from Din Djarin. We saw that the series ended with a fitting conclusion, with Fett becoming the new Daimyo of his crime syndicate on Tatooine.
However, fans are still looking to see more of Boba Fett in the future, and Disney and Lucasfilm have neither confirmed nor denied the possibility of a second season. So, while there is still a chance that season 2 will be happening, we aren’t sure whether or not it will come.
15. ‘Star Wars: Rogue Squadron’ movie (status unknown)
‘Star Wars: Rogue Squadron’ was originally supposed to be released in 2023, but it appears that it has been pushed off to the side and will be released as a feature-length film sometime in the future (possibly in 2024 or 2025). There is no confirmation about its cancellation, so we can’t say whether or not it will be released. The only thing we know is that the film is supposed to focus on the stories of the Rebel Alliance starfighter squadron that we saw in the original movies.
