Lucasfilm has been busy, and these Star Wars Disney Plus show release dates prove it. On December 10, 2020, the franchise’s production company shared a long slate of upcoming series and features currently in development for the next couple of years. Let’s get into what we know about these releases so far.

The series announcements came by way of Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy, during Disney’s annual Investor Day event. 2020’s iteration didn’t only see the likes of Lucasfilm, though. Other Walt Disney heavyweights like Marvel made special announcements, and fans of the Marvel Cinematic Universe would be happy to hear that an entire roster of Marvel shows was also revealed to be in development for 2021 (and 2022). It’s shaping up to be a good time to be a fan of galaxies (and multiverses!) far, far away.

The Book of Boba Fett

Release Date: December 2021

There was a special surprise waiting for fans at the end of season two of The Mandalorian. A post-credits scene with Boba Fett and Fennec Shand revealed that a new series, The Book of Boba Fett, is coming to Disney+ in December 2021. On December 21, during an appearance on Good Morning America, showrunner Jon Favreau confirmed that The Book of Boba Fett is set to premiere ahead of The Mandalorian season 3. So far, cast members Temeura Morrison and Ming-Na Wen have been confirmed to play the roles of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand, respectively.

The Mandalorian Season 3

Release Date: Christmas 2021

Days ahead of The Mandalorian’s season 2 finale, Disney+ confirmed that the fan-favorite series will be hitting the platform in 2021. Lucasfilm president, Kathleen Kennedy, announced the third season will premiere on “Christmas 2021.” Given the show’s history of launching new episodes on Fridays, fans are already taking that to mean a release day of December 24, 2021—a.k.a., Christmas Eve—since Christmas Day falls on a Saturday in 2021.

Star Wars: Andor

Release Date: 2022

Production is well underway on this series about Rebellion agent and pilot, Cassian Andor. Diego Luna will reprise his role in the series, which he originated in 2016’s Star Wars: Rogue One.

Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi

Release Date: 2022

After years of speculation over Disney’s Obi-Wan Kenobi spin-off, Lucasfilm made an official confirmation that the series is on its way during Disney’s 2020 Investor Day. Production on the series begins in April 2021.

Ewan McGregor is set to return as the Jedi Master alongside Hayden Christensen’s Darth Vader. Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse are also reprising their roles as Owen and Beru Lars—a.k.a Luke Skywalker’s uncle and aunt.  Actors Kumail Nanjiani, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Moses Ingram, Indira Varma, Rupert Friend, Sung Kang, Simone Kessell, and Benny Safdie were also revealed to be joining them as part of the cast in roles yet to be announced.

Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic

Release Date: TBA

Given the massive success of The Mandalorian, it should come as no surprise that the Star Wars franchise is giving that show yet another spin-off.

Following the fanfare over Donald Glover’s portrayal of Lando Calrissian in Solo: A Star Wars Story, Lucasfilm has dedicated an entire series to the character. While it’s unclear if Glover is set to return, we do know that Justin Simien of Dear White People is in charge of developing the series.

Star Wars: A Droid Story
