This isn’t exactly news, since we knew it was all happening already, but in a recent trailer promoting the new content that will be coming to the Disney+ streaming service in 2022, we got further, official confirmation that there are going to be a ton of major projects from Lucasfilm hitting the platform next year.
This includes Obi-Wan Kenobi, The Book of Boba Fett, Willow, Andor, and The Bad Batch season two, all of which were promoted in this short teaser (nothing more than title cards were shown for all but Boba Fett).
All of this means that we are in store for what will be the biggest year in the company’s history, at least volume-wise. It’ll begin with The Book of Boba Fett, which technically releases this year, even though it’s just days before the start of 2022. All but one episode of the series will premiere next year. From there we actually don’t have release dates for the other projects, but the conventional assumption has been that Boba Fett will run into February, and then Obi-Wan Kenobi will begin probably sometime around May. From there, The Bad Batch season two would come over the summer, with Andor later in the year. But again, that’s all speculation.
Also of note is that there’s nothing here about The Mandalorian season three, though I think it’s still very possible (and perhaps even likely) that it’ll be coming at the end of 2022, much like The Book of Boba Fett is this year.
As for Willow, we know very little about the series besides the cast, but it’ll be premiering next year as well. This all makes for a massive year for Lucasfilm, and all of this is in addition to the other projects that will be in production throughout the year too. It is a great time to be a Star Wars fan!
