Since Disney bought Lucasfilm in 2012, they’ve created a plethora of new âStar Warsâ content.
The sequel trilogy – âThe Force Awakensâ in 2015, âThe Last Jediâ in 2017 and âThe Rise of Skywalkerâ in 2019 – concluded the main storyline of the Skywalker saga. The standalone films “Rogue One” and “Solo” explored specific stories in this timeline, namely the rebel spy group stole the plans from the Death Star, and when a young Han Solo did the Kessel Run in less than twelve parsecs. Lucasfilm’s first Disney Plus series, “The Mandalorian,” rekindled fans’ sense of adventure on the small screen, while the animated series “Rebels” and “Resistance” explored other time periods not featured in the films. .
Lucasfilm, however, was just getting started.
With “The Bad Batch” now available on Disney Plus, an even bigger wave of “Star Wars” content begins to roll out on streaming and in theaters. “The Mandalorian” serves as the basis for a connected series of upcoming spin-offs such as “The Book of Boba Fett”, “Ahsoka” and “Rangers of the New Republic” which will all lead to a climactic event. Ewan McGregor will reprise his role as Obi-Wan Kenobi in his own limited series, while Cassian Andor from âRogue Oneâ and Lando Calrissian from âSoloâ will have their own time in the spotlight. On the theater side, Patty Jenkins, Taika Waititi, Rian Johnson, Kevin Feige and JD Dillard are all developing their own films.
In total, Lucasfilm plans at least 16 movie and TV titles for 2021 and beyond.
Here is what awaits you.
