Besides the next season of “The Mandalorian”, what are the next Star Wars series to find exclusively on the Disney + platform?
The Mandalorian season 3
Still worn by Pedro Pascal, the third season of The Mandalorian should be available on Disney + after the spin-off on Boba Fett in late 2021 or early 2022. Given the turn of events at the end of the second season, we do not know if Baby Yoda alias Grogu will be present in season 3.
One thing is certain: Din Djarin should set out to conquer Mandalore with Bo-Katan since he is in possession of the Black Lightsaber and Beskar Spear. But he will meet again Moff Gideon on his way, his interpreter Giancarlo Esposito having teased a more important presence in season 3.
The Bad Batch season 2
The animated series The Bad Batch, whose action follows the cult The Clone Wars, follows the unprecedented adventures of the Clone Force 99 squad, composed of genetically modified clones that were not affected by the inhibitor chip during the triggering of Order 66.
After an introductory first season of sixteen episodes, it has been confirmed that a second season will see the light of day in 2022. During these new adventures, there is no doubt that links will be forged with other Star Wars productions, in particular Rebels and Obi -Wan Kenobi whose actions take place during the same timeline of the in-between trilogy!
Dedicated to the character of Cassian Andor (Diego Luna), this series is a prequel to Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. In filming until this summer, Andor could be available on Disney + at the end of the year 2021 or the beginning of 2022. The plot has not been revealed for the moment but the series should tell the course of Cassian Andor until ‘ to his adventure in Rogue One as captain of the Rebellion.
Diego Luna will be flanked by Stellan Skarsgard, Kyle Soller, Genevieve O’Reilly, Denise Gough and Adria Arjona in this series created by Tony Gilroy. Some rumors announce the appearance of Ewan McGregor in his cult role of Obi-Wan Kenobi. Neither Lucasfilm nor Disney have yet confirmed this information, which is plausible given that Andor and the Obi-Wan series, also currently in production, fall in the same timeframe.
Lando will be a series centered on Lando Calrissian, Han Solo’s old friend. Justin Simien (showrunner and director of the series Dear White People) is in charge of developing this series project about which we know very little, not even who will play Lando since he was played by Donald Glover in Solo: A Star Wars Story and by Billy Dee Williams in the Original Trilogy and Star Wars Episode IX.
As the main actor has not been made official to date, it is unclear when in the Star Wars timeline Lando will be set. If the series decides to explore his youth then Donald Glover should be the first choice but if the series follows the events of The Rise of Skywalker then Billy Dee Williams should reprise his role.
Star Wars: The Acolyte
In development by director Leslye Headland, Star Wars: The Acolyte is a series that will depict the final moments of the High Republic era before the events of Episode I: The Phantom Menace. According to Variety, the show will focus on female characters and take place in a period never explored by the saga before.
Star Wars: The Acolyte should therefore be a very dark series which will stage the emergence of powers of the dark side and which could see the appearance of Darth Plagueis and his apprentice Darth Sidious. No information on the cast and characters of this live-action series scheduled for Disney + has yet been released.
Star Wars: A Droid Story
Another Star Wars show announced with very little information, Star Wars: A Droid Story will be an animated series scheduled for 2022 on Disney +. It will stage a brand new hero who will all the same be accompanied in his adventures …
