Star Wars culminated his first cinematographic stage under the aegis of Disney with The rise of Skywalker, the ninth episode of the galactic trilogue that began in 2015 with The Force awakens. Although reactions varied, soon Disney + turned the fate of the House of Mouse and Lucasfilm with The Mandalorian, a television phenomenon that turned the universe devised by George Lucas upside down to give us back the tropes that founded the millionaire success that were released at the end of the seventies.
A disturbance in the Force: what Star Wars debut on Disney + in 2022
At the end of last year, Disney unveiled its production plans and releases related to Marvel and Star Wars, the most ambitious of the corporate entity for the streaming portal that has exceeded 116 million subscribers. In them, the confirmations of the development and the filming of the new seasons of The Mandalorian, limited series such as The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi and the most varied projects, such as Star Wars: Visions, an anime approach that arrives in a few weeks.
Movies were also confirmed, which we have not discussed here –Rogue Squadron by Patty Jenkins- and series that do not have a close date, such as The Acolyte, A Droid Story, Lando O Ahsoka. In any case, without stopping looking at the past, we tell you what Disney’s plans are for the next 2022, a galactic year that may be the best you have ever lived Star Wars in its recent history.
The Book of Boba Fett (Miniseries, 8 episodes starting December 2021)
The Book of Boba Fett It was the big surprise of the last minutes of the second season of The Mandalorian. With the support of Jon Favreau y Dave Filoni, will develop in the times after Return of the jedi, that is, in the same chronological frame that we see in The Mandalorian, with a galaxy shattered after civil war and the near-widespread destruction of the Galactic Empire.
In this convulsive scenario, with the New Republic trying to regain power, and with the remnants of the Empire doing their thing, organized crime and local mafias begin to become stronger and stronger taking advantage of the power vacuum. In the post-credits sequence of the season finale from The Mandalorian, let’s attend the return of Boba Fett and Fennec Shand to Tatooine and, more specifically, to Jabba’s Palace. In those sojourns, where Fett spent a long time serving the Hutt, to date Bib Fortuna (Matthew Wood) has reigned without too much trouble, surviving the explosion of Jabba’s barge in the Great Pit of Carkoon.
The series will narrate the adventures of the two mercenaries as leaders of a cartel in the Outer Rim.
From there, he has been trying to rule the criminal empire of the outer edge of the galaxy, but it has not had good results. As the famous post-credits sequence of The Mandalorian dropped us, Fett and Fennec have come to stay as the new galactic godfathers. And from there, they will impart their law. We know that Robert Rodriguez has directed several episodes and calls us to see something that will leave us ‘crazy’, and that Temuera Morrison is delighted with the treatment of his mercenary and bounty hunter.
- Release date: from December 2021 to January 2022
- When is it located in the galactic chronology ?: After the events of Return of the Jedi, coinciding with The Mandalorian.
Andor (Miniseries, 12 episodes)
One of the projects covered or less interesting a priori, but that may surprise us due to its format and distribution. Diego Luna has experienced a meteoric rise. After playing a drug lord in Narcos: Mexico and the rebellious spy of Rogue One: A Star Wars StoryLuna has stopped being a luxury secondary in multiple productions to being the absolute protagonist, establishing herself in Hollywood in many stories and projects. With Andor, series in which he repeats his character from Rogue One, intends to disembark in style in Disney+ giving a greater background to one of the gray heroes of the Gareth Edwards film.
One of the most remarkable aspects of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story it was that he was trying to tell us a war and spy story, far removed from the battles between Jedi and Sith or the affairs of the Order. Narrating us the operation that stole the plans of the Death Star and the beginning of the Rebellion, it ends in a fateful way but throwing away the concept of hope with which the original trilogue of Star Wars. Conceived as a prequel plot, Andor is about a one-season miniseries, a format that you produce like Kenobi and Ahsoka they will also carry by flag. The official synopsis distributed by Disney tells us how the rebel spy Cassian Andor helped form the Rebellion with his operations, being the protagonist of some of the riskiest missions ever carried out against the Galactic Empire in its heyday.
‘Andor’ has been conceived as a spy thriller at the time of the rise of the Empire
It is thriller espionage, which Diego Luna himself defined as a very long film In several of his interviews, explore a story full of espionage and dangerous missions with one clear goal: to restore hope to a galaxy in the clutches of a ruthless Galactic Empire. Besides Diego Luna, Adria Arjona, Stellan Skarsgard, Genevieve O’Reilly, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller y Fiona Shaw will be part of the cast, with Tony Gilroy as director of the episodes (and beware, since he is responsible for the saga Bourne).
- Release date: Rumors speak from March to May
- When is it located in the galactic chronology?: Before Rogue One: A Star Wars Story.
The bad consignment (Season 2, 16 new episodes)
Star Wars: The Bad Batch o La remesa mala in Spain, it will have a second season. We announced it to you a few days ago in Vandal Random. Star Wars: The Bad Consignment tells the story of the Experimental and elite clones of the Bad Remittance, which we met for the first time in Star Wars: Clone Wars. Members of Experimental Force 99, a unique squad of clones that differ genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army, possess exceptional ability that makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and an unbeatable team.
“The entire Lucasfilm animation team and I would like to thank Disney + and our fans for the opportunity to continue telling the story of Bad Batch“explained the executive producer a few days ago Dave Filoni, the soul of this animated series and series like The Mandalorian and Clone Wars. In fact, this has been the main reason for the renovation. His argument fits great with certain factors regarding the rise of the Galactic Empire that will be seen later in the original triloga, answering common questions. Were all the clones bad when the Republic fell? How did the Galactic Empire start recruiting soldiers? And what happened to the Kamino cloners? Well, some of them are answered in the first season, and others, logically, are left up in the air and seem to be related to The Rise of Skywalker and The Mandalorian. The production, with excellent 3D animation, will follow next year with new episodes.
- Release date: Rumors speak from August to November
- When is it located in the galactic chronology ?: After the events of Revenge of the Sith and before that A new hope.
Obi-Wan Kenobi (Miniseries, 6 episodes)
For many, the main course. Obi-Wan Kenobi is the series centered on the iconic Jedi developed 10 years after the dramatic events of Revenge of the Sith, where he faced his greatest defeat: the fall and corruption of his best friend and Jedi apprentice, Anakin Skywalker turned into the evil Sith Lord, Darth Vader. Ewan McGregor bring back to life Obi-Wan Kenobi, a Jedi Master now retired and in hiding after the purge of the Galactic Empire. McGregor already embodies the character in the prequel triloga Hayden Christensen to be Darth Vader again, and there is speculation with some other cameo of the actor himself as Anakin Skywalker in his adolescence during the Clone Wars or in previous adventures with his mentor. Joel Edgerton returning as Owen Lars and Bonnie Piesse as Beru Lars, Luke Skywalker’s coughs and the people who cared for him during his childhood and adolescence.
Bonnie Piesse, Kumail Nanjiani, Indira Varma -Actress we know thanks to Game of Thrones-, Rupert Friend, O’Shea Jackson Jr., Sung Kang, Simone Kessell y Benny Safdie they will also be part of the cast. We also know that Jar Jar Binks will not make an appearance, though speculated on the appearance of Liam Neeson as Qui-Gon Jin, despite the fact that the actor has denied more than once that they have contacted him. Obi-Wan Kenobi is produced by Kathleen Kennedy, Michelle Rejwan, Deborah Chow, Ewan McGregor and writer Joby Harold, while the direction and creative effort falls on Chow herself.
The story takes place 10 years after Episode III
Chow, who also acts as showunner, confirmed that they have been working to find the ideal narrative tone throughout the production, trying establish the right links with the classic trilogue and the one with the prequels directed by George Lucas, increasingly claimed by fans of Star Wars. However, and as we have already mentioned, in Episode III we saw Anakin Skywalker embrace the identity of Darth Vader, falling into the dark side of the Force, and watching how Padm Amidala lost her life before giving birth to Luke y Leia. Hiding to protect them from the Empire, Vader, and the Emperor, Leia was eventually adopted by Senator Bail Organa and taken to Alderaan, and Obi-Wan decides to take Luke with his family on Tatooine, where he vows to watch over him. If you want to know more, we recommend our special.
- Release date: Rumors speak from July to August
- When is it located in the chronology ?: 10 years after the events of Revenge of the Sith.
The Mandalorian (Season 3, 8 episodes)
It is the great unknown and at the same time, the most predictable according to the filming volumes of Lucasfilm and Disney. A few days ago we told you how the original team was preparing to start shooting, so season 3 of The Mandalorian It is more than a reality. On Vandal Random We have speculated on it, and it seems that little by little it begins to be clear that it will arrive by the end of next year. The production, like many others of this special, is filmed in the so-called StageCraft o Volume, a set of almost 360 full of virtual screens that offers a great versatility of scenarios and lighting conditions in real time, allowing them to shoot quickly and with quality indoors without the need for travel, long outdoor shots and related problems.
We know little or nothing about the plot, but we anticipate some clues in our special about the end of season 2 and what it implied.
- Release date: Rumors speak from November to December.
- When is it located in the chronology ?: After the events of Return of the Jedi.
