What Can We Expect From Star Wars In 2023: In the new year, Star Wars is charging full speed ahead with a customized YT-1300 freighter’s worth of material.
The hunch we have isn’t good, but the hunch could be right! This new year will see a flood of Star Wars media, including live-action and animated films as well as a big computer game.
There’s a lot to remember this season, what with the introduction of a live-action Thrawn as well as the returns of The Mandalorian and Grogu, so buckle up and… punch it!
In 2023, Star Wars will finally be released.
The Bad Batch: Season 2
Let the band formerly known as Experimental Clone Force 99 get your new year started off right! In the early days of the Empire, Huntah, Ricka, Icko, Tick, and Omega are all free-agent mercenaries for hire, learning that this new world isn’t so fair to the Clones or the Kaminoans who made them.
Season 2 of The Bad Batch is said to delve more deeply into the massive galactic transition from the Republic era to the Empire era. Beginning in January on Disney+, Season 2 will take off.
The Mandalorian: Season 3
Please send us an image of the newborn. After Grogu’s final decision in The Book of Boba Fett to side with his father instead of the Jedi Order, we finally get to see him in action when Season 3 of The Mandalorian finally premieres. Coming back to the ruins of Mandalore is like coming home for Din Djarin, but he has some serious repenting to do before his fellow Mandalorians will accept him again.
Meanwhile, Bo Katan has some strong opinions about what it means to be a Mandalorian and who should be in charge now that Din has successfully claimed the Darksaber.
While the teaser video introduced us to some familiar faces like Greef Karga, Peli Motto, and Babu Frik, the whole film may feature even more surprise appearances from familiar faces (perhaps even on the level of Luke Skywalker). On March 1st, Disney+ will host the next adventure with the Mudhorn Family.
Star Wars Jedi: Survivor
Also, five years after the events of Star Wars: Jedi: Fallen Order, Order 66 survivors like Cal Kestis are continuing their adventures. Cal, rumored to have developed new Force skills and lightsaber fighting methods, will find out how far he will go to protect the people he cares about when he escapes the Empire’s grasp during an era of greater instability. Cal, BD-1, and others will be back on March 16.
When there is a gap of five years between games, there needs to be more filler, so a prequel novel is also available. Cal develops feelings for the Stinger Mantis’s crew in Star Wars Jedi: Battle Scars, but he’ll have to face off against bad guys like the Fifth Brother in Disney+’s Obi-Wan Kenobi series. It will be released a week before the March 7, 2023 release of Jedi Survivor, so you can read it then if you like.
Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures
A new Star Wars series, Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures, follows a group of younglings who attend the Jedi Academy during the High Republic era. Please keep in mind that this show is aimed at preschool and elementary school-aged kids; harsh criticisms about how the show violates canon by, say, featuring an Ewok teddy bear, are unnecessary. Disney+ will debut Star Wars: Young Jedi Adventures in the spring of 2023.
Star Wars: Visions Vol. 2
Star Wars: Visions is an ongoing animated anthology series that has now spawned two volumes. The first volume had nine anime short films created by seven different Japanese animation studios. This time around, we’ll be getting our animation from all around the world, including the United States, South Africa, Chile, South Africa, the United Kingdom, Ireland, France, and India.
In Volume 1, the studios were allowed a great deal of creative leeway to present the Star Wars canon in their own unique ways, and Volume 2 promises to take this to a whole new cultural level. The second volume of Star Wars: The Visions will debut on Disney+ in early 2023.
Star Wars: Ahsoka
Fans have been clamoring for more Ahsoka Tano since they saw Rosario Dawson in her live-action debut as the fan-favorite force-user in The Mandalorian. Of course, this also includes fans of the Star Wars animated series Rebels, especially as it has been hinted that Sabine Wren, Ezra Bridger, and (unofficially) Hera Syndulla and Chopper will all return in Season 1 of Ahsoka.
Hayden Christensen, who originally played Ahsoka’s mentor, Anakin Skywalker/Darth Vader, is also expected to return. We can’t wait for the live-action adaptation of any fight between these two characters because every one of their previous encounters has been nothing short of electrifying.
There is currently no confirmed premiere date for Ahsoka on Disney+, but fans can look forward to it sometime in late 2023.
Star Wars: Skeleton Crew
This new and intriguing live-action TV series, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, starring Jude Law, is set to premiere soon. The program, which was announced by Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau at Star Wars Celebration 2022, appears to be like Stranger Things but set in the Star Wars universe.
The only things we know about this show are that it was originally nicknamed “Grammar Rodeo,” which is a wonderful Simpsons reference and that it is a coming-of-age narrative about a gang of kids adrift in space around the timeframe of The Mandalorian.
Jon Watts, the guy behind the Spider-Man films starring Tom Holland, has only divulged the following details about the character’s creation: “Their search for a path back home is the subject of this narrative. It has a child cast but is not intended for children.” The release date for Star Wars: Goonies, er, Skeleton Crew on Disney+ has been announced at some point in 2023.
