Hello everyone, your friendly neighborhood Professor Hulk here. I’m about to drop some knowledge on some exciting stuff going on in the film and TV world. Last week we shared with you details on season 5 of Cobra Kai. This week, we’re talking about Star Wars.
Since Disney acquired Lucasfilm and launched streaming service Disney+, Star Wars fans have been treated to excellent new content like The Mandalorian. Disney already confirmed several big-name projects in a galaxy far far away, including the Obi-Wan Kenobi series, Andor, Ahsoka, and more.
Now we can exclusively share that not one, but two unannounced Star Wars live-action Disney+ series will start filming mid-2022. But what projects can fans expect to see next?
What New Star Wars Projects Are Headed To Disney+?
Given that Patty Jenkins’ Rogue Squadron film was recently delayed, and there’s been a few notable departures (Benniof and Weiss, Rian Johnson, etc), it makes sense that Disney and Lucasfilm would double down on Star Wars Disney+ content, which has thus far been pretty successful for them.
There are a few possibilities for what these projects could be. One possibility is a re-tooled Rangers Of The New Republic. The project was set to star Gina Carano. However, since Disney fired Carano from the role, the studio may re-work the project to work without Carano’s character, Cara Dune. It’s possible that it may receive a new title to distance itself from the controversy surrounding the actress.
There’s also the Finn solo project we’ve discussed previously. This project was previously a movie but re-worked as a series. Since it’s relatively far along, it’s not a stretch that it could film mid next year.
Speaking of previously reported on series, the Inquisitor Disney+ series is also a viable option. Considering that Obi-Wan Kenobi is set to feature the live-action debut of Inquisitor’s, it makes sense to follow that up with the Inquisitors series.
Whatever the projects end up being, a Q2 2023 release date seems likely, and with even more investment in Disney+, it would seem that the future of Star Wars on the service is brighter than ever.
So, what do you hope Disney and Lucasfilm explore next in a live-action series? Let us know in the comments below.
