Star Wars is one of the biggest franchises in the world right now. It seems that a lot of people are very fond of stories of this science fantasy universe taking place a long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. It looked like 2024 was to be a very promising year for Disney for that frachise of theirs. However, that all changed when the SAG-AFTRA strike hit Hollywood for much of 2023. Even though the strike just recently ended on November 9, 2023; it’s still affecting production of films and series for 2024 since no writing was getting done. As it turns out, this includes Disney and Star Wars.
Star Wars in 2024: Details
Comic Book has just come out with a very interesting report about the state of Star Wars in 2024. Specifically: in regards to their slate of incoming shows for that year. According to them (via a UK press release from Disney+), fans can expect to see Star Wars: Skeleton Crew and Star Wars: The Acolyte making their streaming debut on Disney+ sometime in 2024. Why is this important, you might ask? Well, it’s because those 2 series are the only Star Wars media appearing at all in 2024. Other than that? Nothing. You can read the exact text of the press release in question below:
Star Wars: The Acolyte will premiere on Disney+ in 2024. The series is a mystery-thriller that will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era. A former Padawan reunites with her Jedi Master to investigate a series of crimes, but the forces they confront are more sinister than they ever anticipated. Star Wars: Skeleton Crew tells the story of four kids who find themselves lost in the vastness of the galaxy trying to find their way home. This series will arrive on the platform in 2024.
This is significant because we were supposed to get a whole host of Star Wars content in 2024. This included new seasons of Andor, Bad Batch, and Tales of the Jedi. It’s pretty clear now though that the SAG-AFTRA strike has disrupted their production schedules. Now it’s likely that it will be a while before we get to see those new seasons. Sad, but understandable for the situation at hand here. Tune back in to THS later to find out more Star Wars news if we hear anything otherwise.
