Lucasfilm Plan to Release 11 New Star Wars Disney Plus Shows in the Next Few Years

    A new report from The Hollywood Reporter suggests that, starting with The Book of Boba Fett, Lucasfilm want to get out 11 shows in the next few years.





    The Hollywood Reporter, covering today's surprise-drop of the first poster for The Book of Boba Fett, shared an interesting tidbit that was somewhat buried within the article:



    'Next several years' is a vague enough range, but it sounds like having most, if not all of the projects in question, release their first (or only, in the case of limited series) by 2024 could be doable provided that Lucasfilm continues to keep up and even increase the pace with live-action and animated productions.



    We already know what seven of these projects are, by means of Lucasfilm's previous announcements at the Disney Investors Day presentation shown above: Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor, Lando, Ahsoka, Rangers of the New Republic, and The Acolyte, plus The Book of Boba Fett, which was announced with the second season finale for The Mandalorian. (Also in the pipeline are Indiana Jones 5, Willow, and Children of Blood and Bone, which otherwise have no bearing on this discussion.) Worth noting is that A Droid Story is not among those, since it is an animated movie. So that leaves four shows left to be accounted for, and we don't suspect that these are new seasons for shows that have already launched - and even if we were to account for The Mandalorian, The Bad Batch, and potentially Visions getting additional seasons, we'd still be one show short. The Clone Wars is officially over, so that can't count either, and neither will featurettes like Biomes, Vehicle Flythroughs, or Galaxy of Sounds, or third-party content like the LEGO Star Wars specials.

    Of the Lucasfilm productions listed, The Book of Boba Fett, Obi-Wan Kenobi and Andor have all wrapped. Rumors have indicated that casting for Ahsoka has been a priority for a while, so it stands to reason that it should film relatively soon. Lando should also be high on the list of priorities, given that Billy Dee Williams has implied that he'll be involved in the series even if it will most likely star Donald Glover. The Acolyte has been in development for quite some time, so it can be suspected that that should also be among the shows that move forward in the relatively near future. Rangers of the New Republic seems to be the furthest away, given that it was last mentioned as not being in active development.



    In terms of what's shooting where, Boba FettObi-Wan Kenobi, and all three seasons of The Mandalorian have all shot in Los Angeles (with Mando currently filming), while Andor shot in the United Kingdom. It was reported by The Ronin in May that three Lucasfilm productions are gearing up for filming in the UK that weren't Willow, Indiana Jones 5, or Andor. The Ronin speculated that these would correspond to the Ahsoka and Lando shows and the Rogue Squadron film. (Ahsoka filming abroad would be a departure from the precedent set by The Mandalorian and its first spin-off.) Lucasfilm is committed to creating new Volume sets to help increase the pace of their overall live-action output. Animation can be done anywhere if another new series or two are in the pipeline on top of The Bad Batch, but it seems like live-action productions are primarily stuck to LA or the UK for the time being. Nonetheless, with the development of new production facilities and an increase in creative output, Lucasfilm should be more than able to provide a wealth of content for Disney Plus in the years to come, between new series and continuations of existing series.



    The next major Star Wars release for Disney Plus, The Book of Boba Fett, begins streaming on December 29, 2021.

    Yes, hopefully a Solo/Qi’ra series is in the works. I can rest easily knowing that the most underrated Star Wars movie is getting a proper continuation, especially after all the hype around Qi’ra’s recent return in the comics.

    I remember hearing rumors a while ago about Ezra and Thrawn getting their own series after Ahsoka (if the truly are in it like they seem to be). I think that could be a very interesting series showing what they’re up to in the time between Rebels and The Mandalorian.

    An animated series following the OT characters, particularly Luke Skywalker, in between the OT and ST would be amazing. That era is still largely an empty canvas so it’d be cool to get an entire show following these beloved characters in the same vein as The Clone Wars followed around many of the Prequel characters. The same goes for a similar series following the Sequel cast after TROS though I could wait a bit longer on that one.

    My next wish isn’t a show and wouldn’t be listed with these original series, but a collection of animated movies that are finished versions of unproduced Clone Wars arcs would be amazing as well. It seems like a no brainer to me: chances are that they already have a lot of the voice acting already complete and the entire story fleshed out. And with how beloved The Clone Wars is right now, a new animated TCW movie on Disney+ each year would be a sure hit. Personally, I’d love to finally see a finished version of the Crystal Crisis on Utapau arc as well as on-screen adaptations of Dark Disciple, Son of Dathomir and that Boba Fett/Cad Bane arc. For people who don’t read the books or comics, those all have some very important events for the show’s characters that the casual fans don’t know about.

    A Finn series maybe?

    There was already some notion/rumour not so long ago that John Boyega may be in talks with Disney regarding his return to the role for a series of some sort.

    Finn Prequel/Sequel Star Wars Series In The Works

    "Finn may be getting an upcoming Disney+ series. It had previously been announced that J.D. Dillard and Matt Owens were working on a Star Wars film. According to multiple inside sources, that movie concept is now being repurposed as a series... and have since re-tooled the movie to now be a longer form Disney+ series focusing on Finn."

    Might have all been 'fake news' of course, but either way, now that the ST is well and truly over, I certainly think it's an area in the timeline that I think could be getting more attention in a live action show.
