Star Wars: Three new movies announced

With announcements for three new films and news for five series, Star Wars Celebration Europe 2023 should have delighted many fans. The films will be directed by James Mangold (Logan, Indiana Jones and the Dial of Destiny), Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, Ahsoka) and the first-ever Star Wars film director, Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy (Ms. Marvel, Saving Face). For the series, Lucasfilm has fixed the order of appearance on Disney +, the series Ahsoka will start in August, in which the title heroine will, among other things, investigate the reappearance of Admiral Thrawn.

The locations of the announced films are spread across the known and unknown timeline of the Star Wars galaxy. James Mangold’s project aims to return to the beginning and trace the origins of the Jedi in the much more distant past. This means that the film should play well before the Kotor titles (Knights of the Old Republic) and about 25,000 years before the first film, if you follow the original Star Wars setting. Where this time is settled in the new canon remains to be seen. Despite two film projects that have been put on hold, the Star Wars universe seems to be alive and kicking.

The film by Dave Filoni, on the other hand, is set to take place in the more recent Star Wars past and link the storylines of the new republic and the series on Disney+. These include The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka. Disney may be trying to link the Star Wars series similarly to the films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe.

Star Wars arrives in the present day of the cinematic universe with Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy’s film. The project follows on from the Skywalker saga and takes place 15 years after “Episode IX – The Rise of Skywalker”. The main character is again Rey, in whose role Daisy Ridley still slips. Nothing has been confirmed yet, but this might be Episode 10 and the start of another trilogy.

Ahsoka is launching the current Star Wars series in August with a new teaser trailer. Skeleton Crew is also scheduled to appear this year. There, alongside four children, Jude Law plays a leading role and the whole thing is presumably aimed at a younger audience. With the second season of Andor and The Acolyte, two more series will start in 2024. Andor has been announced for August 2024, filming will continue until August of this year. The Acolyte, on the other hand, is scheduled to wrap up in May, so the series, which is pitched as a mix of Frozen and Kill Bill, could start ahead of Andor.
