Vanity Fair magazine provided a large overview of upcoming projects from the world of Star Wars, and in their extensive article they talked to actors, creators and studio director of Lucasfilm Kathleen Kennedy.

 

Lucasfilm has mostly focused on shows in recent years. Coming up next, we'll see Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi. The series will have six parts, with the first two premiering on May 27, 2022. The story captures the life of Jedi Knight Obi-Wan (Ewan McGregor), who protects little Luke Skywalker, while looking for a way to revive his faith in a better tomorrow.

 

After the Sith came to power and killed almost every knight, the Jedi are depressed and, according to actor Ewan McGregor, they are "broken." The story shows the events between the third and fourth episode. Actor Hayden Christensen  will also appear in the series as Darth Vader.

 

 

 

Star Wars: Andor will follow. The series depicts the life and events of the rebel Cassian Andor before he took part in a suicide mission in Rogue One. Cassian will be played by the actor Diego Luna again and in addition to him, actor Alan Tudyk will return as a charismatic robot K-2SO. The series will premiere on Disney + during the summer of 2022.

Early next year, Disney + will begin airing the third season of The Mandalorian, in which Pedro Pascal will play the title character again. The story will continue after the events of the second season and the Boba Fett series, in which all the important characters from The Mandalorian appeared.

 

Next year, the series Ahsoka, which the filmmakers from the Lucasfilm studio have started filming in recent weeks, will also start airing. Ahsoka (Rosario Dawson) was Anakin's student before he became Darth Vader. It is possible that the character of Vader will also appear.

Sometime during the year 2023 we will also see the series Acolyte. Plot-wise, it looks back, taking place about 100 years before the events of the first episode (The Phantom Menace). The creators of the series want to explore the galaxy and the Republic in a state of peace. Their goal will be to answer the question of how the Sith could have made it to the Senate without the Jedi Knights noticing.

 

In terms of genre, the series is said to resemble the mysterious thriller genre. Acolyte was created by the creator of the Russian Doll series from Netflix and one of its actresses should be Amandla Stenberg (star of The Hate U Give).

 

The next series has no name yet, but it is supposed to be a light-hearted story about teenagers aged 10-13 set in the period after the collapse of the Empire (after Episode VI, similar to the series The Mandalorian). The series will be created by director Jon Watts and screenwriter Chris Ford (Spider-Man: Homecoming). In addition, other animated series are being prepared, such as the Bad Batch series.

 

 

The future of Star Wars films is also interesting. The head of the Lucasfilm studio, which creates Star Wars shows and movies, said, that they no longer want to force a big Star Wars blockbuster every year. According to her, their goal is not to shoot only trilogies and stories with old characters. She sees the future of Star Wars in new characters.

 

She doesn't even want to use the old characters anymore. As she says, it is now clear to her that it is impossible to replace legendary actors like Harrison Ford in their iconic roles (Han Solo). They tried it in the film Solo: A Star Wars Story, which we believe succeeded, but actors like Harrison Ford and their treatment of beloved characters cannot be replaced, and they are fully aware of this in the Lucasfilm studio.

 

 

 

Finally, we will mention a Star Wars film by producer Kevin Feige, who creates Marvel films and shows. Kathleen Kennedy claims that nothing specific is being prepared at the moment, but screenwriter Michael Waldron recently revealed that he is currently working on a screenplay for Feige's Star Wars project, so we will most likely see that as well.
