Star Wars celebration is finally back, the annual convention for fans of a galaxy far, far away.
Lucasfilm has been packed with bears this year, with trailers and announcements pouring off the show every hour of the night. Let’s go through everything Disney had to talk about.
Updated 5/30/22: Updated to include The bad batch and Star Wars Visions.
Star Wars Visions: Season 2
Anime Anthology Series Star Wars Visions will return for a second season. In a break from the anime-centric vibe of season one, visions Season 2 is co-produced with animation houses from the UK, Japan, Chile, Spain, Ireland and South Africa. It is slated to land on Disney+ in early 2023.
The Bad Batch: Season 2
the clone wars spin off, The bad batch, will return for a second season and teases the surprise return of Commander Cody. Cody is expected to become a main antagonist in the second season of the series. As clone wars Fans would know that Cody failed to remove his Inhibitor chip and fell victim to Order 66 along with many of his clone brothers. His fate after the conclusion of Episode III was a big question mark for fans. Here we can slowly see what has become of the once revered Commander Cody.
Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi
Dave Filoni is back at work war of stars animation again. This will either elicit a huge cheer or a low moan, depending on how you like it star wars. As someone who believes Filoni, known as Lucas’ protégé, to be the future of the franchise, I’m personally thrilled to see him back in the animated space he loves so much.
stories of jedi is an anthological animated series that takes its name from the famous 1992 Dark Horse Comics series. It will spotlight the stories of various Jedi from the prequel era and is confirmed to include episodes dedicated to both Mace Windu, Count Dooku and Qui-Gon Jinn. It has been confirmed that Liam Neeson will reprise his role as Qui-Gon, while his son Michael Neeson will voice the younger version of the character.
I hope for a Stories from the outside edge Show about the galaxy’s greatest villains to even it out.
We have known one Ahsoka Series has been on the road for some time, but now we have a first look at the show. As with the new Mandalorian Season 3 teaser, the first Ahsoka The teaser was only shown to the public at Star Wars Celebration. Maybe one day it will see the light of day on YouTube.
The show will not only be Ahsoka’s first solo live-action adventure, but will also continue the story Star Wars rebels left open. In this show, Jedi-in-training Ezra Bridger made a significant sacrifice in order to launch himself and the evil Grand Admiral Thrawn into the unknown reaches of the galaxy. This new show focuses on Ahsoka and Sabine Wren’s (played by Natasha Liu Bordizzo) longtime hunt for what has become of Ezra.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Star Wars Jedi: Survivorthe anticipated sequel to Respawn Entertainment’s megahit Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order has released its First Look teaser trailer. It features the return of Cal Kestis and his sidekick BD-1. The trailer shows Kestis fighting a cloaked Sith and the game’s well-known ship, the Stinger Mantis, in serious combat. We look forward to this one. Hopefully Respawn can smooth out the rougher edges of the original and meaningfully iterate on its Soulsvania Lite approach. It’s slated to launch in 2023 (so likely October to December next year).
Light & Magic
Light & Magic is a Disney+ documentary series about Industrial Light & Magic. ILM is the special effects house set up by George Lucas to help him make a little film called ” war of stars. Its innovations forever changed the special effects in blockbuster films, and it has since worked on virtually every major science fiction and fantasy film ever made. Consisting of six parts, the documentary will trace the company’s origins and people, its process, its myriad innovations and breakthroughs, and its current projects. It is run by someone who knows his war of stars Very good, Lawrence Kasdan. Kasdan wrote Hunter of the Lost ark, Return of the Jediand kept writing The Force Awakens. He also contributed significant paraphrases The Empire Strikes Backshaping it into the film it is today.
light & magic debuts July 27 on Disney+.
The Mandalorian Season 3
First things first, let’s check out Mando. The Mandalorian is slated to air its third season on Disney+ in February 2023. However, showrunners Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni were on hand to talk about the show and reveal a brand new trailer. The trailer itself will not be released online. In a nod to San Diego Comic-Con in the early 2010s, the trailer was for the people in the room only. However, our friends from Gizmodo were in the room, so we know what happened in the trailer.
The trailer shows some of Mando and Grogu on a journey home to Mandalore. “You took your helmet off,” intones The Armorer. “What’s worse, you did it voluntarily. You’re not a Mandalorian anymore. Redemption has not been possible since the destruction of our homeworld.”
“Their cult abandoned Mandalore long before the purge,” spat Katee Sackhoff’s Bo Katan. “Where were you then?”
Mando’s path is clear: he goes home to Mandalore to seek redemption. If he makes it, it will be the first time Mandalore has featured in live action war of stars Media. Very exciting times.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew
This only became known a few weeks ago Spider-Man: No Way Home Director Jon Watts was working on an Amblin style war of stars Show for Disney+. Now we know a little more about it.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, which will star Jude Law, focuses on a group of kids lost in the galaxy trying to find their way home. Expect a throwback to the Spielberg children-in-trouble film of the ’80s The Goonies. At the moment, Caravan of Courage is sort of the closest canonical approximation we can think of, but there’s definitely room for that kind of story in war of stars Universe. The show hasn’t started filming yet, but it’s slated for release on Disney+ next year.
The one major war of stars trailer we did got today was a teaser for Andorthe Disney+ spin-off of Rogue One: One Star Wars story. The trailer feels extremely similar in tone and aesthetics Villain One and only briefly shows Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor. The show is set during the reign of the Empire Villain One and A new hope and sheds light on the earliest, most edgy moments of rebellion.
Andor Premiered on Disney+ this August and will run for 12 episodes. The show is confirmed for a second season that will tie its story into the events of Villain One.
Indiana Jones 5
Not every facet of Star Wars celebration is focused war of stars himself. Rather, the show is a celebration of everything that’s about to come out of the mind of George Lucas and Lucasfilm. So we took a look at two new projects running at LF. The first is of course the still untitled one Indiana Jones 5.
The new film is directed by James Mangold (logan) and follows the now elderly Henry Jones Jr. on a new adventure to stop Mads Mikkelsen’s villain. Antonio Banderas and Phoebe Waller-Bridge also star. Whether this will be Harrison Ford’s final appearance as Jones remains to be seen. John Williams returns to provide the score.
This is just such a beautiful Star Wars Celebration homecoming. pasture is an often-overlooked Lucasfilm classic, a high-fantasy tale about an aspiring wizard named Willow, played by Warwick Davis. In this new Disney+ series, Willow comes out of retirement to help a group of brave young adventurers restore balance to a world thrown into disorder and discord. pasture Coming to Disney+ next November.
