It’s an incredible time to be a Star Wars fan.
There are TONS of projects that are in the works at Lucasfilm, and TONS of projects that will be released within the next two years. We’ve known about most of them already, but we had almost zero idea about release timeframes. But at Star Wars Celebration 2022, we got a much better idea of how the next two years are going to shape out for Lucasfilm and their properties, and I’ve compiled a list of these coming projects.
You’ll note that some of these have specific dates, some are the month it’ll be releasing, some are more general (like spring or fall), and then a few we just know are coming next year. But this is nonetheless much more information than we knew previously, and we can begin to see what 2022 and 2023 will be like.
And, in short, we’ll have almost non-stop Star Wars, which is amazing. Here’s a look at what’s coming:
Obi-Wan Kenobi – May 27, 2022
In this six-episode live-action series, Obi-Wan Kenobi watches over young Luke Skywalker on Tatooine but is pulled back into the fight, leading to a fateful reunion with his former apprentice turned Sith Lord, Darth Vader.
Light & Magic – July 27, 2022
This docuseries, which spans six episodes, explores the history of the groundbreaking studio Industrial Light & Magic, whose impact on filmmaking is nearly impossible to quantify as they have totally revolutionized the special effects industry over and over again.
Lego Star Wars Summer Vacation – August 5, 2022
The latest Lego Star Wars animated special is coming this summer, this time focused on Rey, Finn, Poe, Rose, Chewie, and the gang as they try to get a much-needed vacation after the events of The Rise of Skywalker – but discover that it doesn’t exactly go as planned, which is par for the course for Star Wars heroes.
Andor – August 31, 2022
Before he was the Rebel hero we met in Rogue One, who was Cassian Andor? This series will explore his backstory and how he came to join the Rebellion – as well as showing Mon Mothma’s pivotal role in the early days of the alliance.
The Bad Batch – fall 2022
Clone Force 99, a group of genetically enhanced clones, returns for the second season of the successful animated series, which is a sequel series to The Clone Wars and explores how the clones are adapting and adjusting in a quickly changing galaxy in the early days of the Empire.
Tales of the Jedi – fall 2022
This brand new animated series from Dave Filoni is a series of six shorts, three of which are focused on Ahsoka Tano and three of which are focused on Dooku, exploring different moments from their paths as Jedi.
The High Republic phase 2 – November 1, 2022
The biggest Star Wars publishing initiative in years launched at the beginning of 2021 with the High Republic, and it will return with the second phase of this massive era with tons of books, comics, and related material beginning this November.
Willow – November 30, 2022
This isn’t Star Wars, but it IS a Lucasfilm project that is continuing a story created by George Lucas. This series is a sequel to the 1988 Willow film that became a cult classic and introduces a new generation to these heroes, both in their universe and in ours.
The Mandalorian – February 2023
The flagship Disney+ program from day one returns for its third season in February 2023, which follows the further adventures of Mando and Grogu – this time as they head to Mandalore!
Young Jedi Adventures – spring 2023
This new animated series is set in the High Republic era and is intended for young kids (and their parents too!), taking a look at younglings as they train to become Jedi – training under Grand Master Yoda.
Visions Volume 2 – spring 2023
The first season of this anthology collection of anime shorts was released last year, and a new collection of them is coming in spring 2023, allowing various studios from around the world to give their “vision” on the Star Wars universe and ethos.
Indiana Jones 5 – June 30, 2023
The only movie that we know for sure is coming from Lucasfilm in the next two years isn’t Star Wars, but it’s still one of the biggest franchises in movie history: Indiana Jones. Harrison Ford returns for the fifth (and presumably final) time as the always iconic character, which promises to be another thrilling adventure.
Ahsoka – 2023
Set within the same timeline as The Mandalorian, Ahsoka Tano and Sabine Wren team up to, presumably, search for the long-lost Jedi Ezra Bridger – in a series that will likely explore more of the depths of the Jedi and the Force along the way. This series is currently filming.
Skeleton Crew – 2023
This live-action series is also set within the same timeline as The Mandalorian and Ahsoka, and it focuses on a group of ten year old kids who must travel across the galaxy as they try to make their way back home. The series is helmed by Chris Watts and stars Jude Law.
Jedi: Survivor – 2023
The sequel to the acclaimed video game Jedi: Fallen Order, this game takes place five years after the events of its predecessor and follows Cal Kestis and BD-1 in their exploits across a galaxy that is becoming harder and harder for a Jedi to survive in.
These are the major projects we know for sure are coming within the next two years, but there is guaranteed to be more. Some of the things that we’ll see in 2022 or 2023 haven’t even been announced yet, so there’s always more in the works than just this (and I haven’t even mentioned the very regular release schedule for books and comics and things like that).
One other note to say here is that there is still a Star Wars theatrical release slot on the Disney movie release schedule for December 22, 2023. It was originally announced as being Rogue Squadron, but now we know that that has been pushed back and Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie will be the next one released. However Lucasfilm President Kathy Kennedy did not confirm that it’ll release at that date, so as of now I’ve left it off this schedule until we hear more confirmation one way or another. Regardless, we certainly won’t be lacking for Star Wars material anytime soon!
