Every Star Wars movie and TV release set for 2022 and beyond

Here’s the full schedule of what movies and shows are coming to the Star Wars universe next

Star Wars is in a very weird place right now. Disney has already completed its own Skywalker trilogy and closed that book on that story, but there are still tons of Star Wars projects that are somewhere on their way to theaters and streaming, with Disney teasing even more at its 2022 D23 expo.

Disney’s upcoming Star Wars lineup stretches as far into the past as the High Republic and may even pass the Skywalker Saga on the timeline one day. There are shows about new characters and old favorites, and plenty of shows to help us better understand the events of one Star Wars movie or another. And while some don’t have formal release dates yet, there’s already trailers for them, like Mandalorian season 3. As for new movies, Disney is a little bit more quiet, but there are a least a few on the very distant horizon.

With so many things planned for the Star Wars universe, here’s a look at all the shows that we know coming to Disney Plus, the movies that will arrive in theaters, and when you can expect to see each and every one of them.

Star Wars: Andor: Sept. 21

This spinoff of a spinoff will follow Cassian Andor, introduced in Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, and the mostly heroic spies of the Rebellion as they undermine the Empire and plot its eventual destruction. Andor will bring back Diego Luna as the title character, alongside Stellan Skarsgård, Fiona Shaw, and Anton Valensi.

Tales of the Jedi: Oct. 26

Tales of the Jedi, an animated Star Wars anthology series from the creators of The Clone Wars, is coming to Disney Plus on Oct. 26. The series will be broken into six shorts that follow Jedis from the prequel trilogy, including Ahsoka (who’s getting her own show in 2023), Anakin Skywalker, Count Dooku, Qui-Gon Jinn, Yoda, Mace Windu, and more. The anthology series will feature Liam Neeson will be returning as Qui-Gon, as well as Ashley Eckstein, who voiced Ahsoka in the prior animated projects.


The Bad Batch season 2: Jan. 4

The animated series The Bad Batch is coming back for a second season at the beginning of 2023 with a two-episode premiere. The exploits of the Clone Force 99 are expected to directly follow the end of season 1.

Star Wars: Ahsoka

This series will follow Rosario Dawson’s Ahsoka Tano, but it’s not exactly clear where the story might take her. We do know that the series will include Hayden Christensen as Darth Vader, so it’s very likely a prequel to the events of The Mandalorian and Book of Boba Fett — since Vader is dead by then — but that’s about all we know, and it’s still just a guess. But as of Sept. 2022, Ezra Bridger will be there, played by Eman Esfandi.

The Mandalorian season 3

Technically, season 2 of The Mandalorian happened all the way back in 2020, but you could be forgiven for forgetting considering that The Book of Boba Fett was basically Mandalorian season 2.5. But the official third season is on the way to give us more adventures with Grogu and Din Djarin.

Taika Waititi’s Star Wars movie

The fact that this movie is directed by Taika Waititi and co-written by Waititi and Krysty Wilson-Cairns (1917) is a comprehensive list of the things we actually know about it. Waititi said in the summer of 2021 that the movie has a story — makes sense — and that otherwise it’s still being written. As for when it might take place, or come out, we’ll just have to wait and see. With Rogue Squadron getting moved back, Waititi’s movie will be the first Star Wars movie set to hit theaters since Rise of Skywalker.

Perhaps the upcoming Star Wars movie of which we know the most, Star Wars: Rogue Squadron will be directed by Patty Jenkins (Wonder Woman), who described her desire to turn it into the “greatest fighter pilot movie of all time.” While this movie was originally slated for release in December 2023, scheduling conflicts led to a delay and pushed the movie off of Disney’s calendar for that year. However since then, Jenkins as reportedly moved a few things around in order to focus more on Rogue Squadron and the upcoming Wonder Woman 3.

Star Wars: The Acolyte

This Star Wars series will be set in the later days of the High Republic where the Dark Side of the Force starts to find its footing. Created by Russian Doll creator Leslye Headland, The Acolyte will be a mystery series that’s all about a new and secret power emerging from the Dark Side.

Kevin Feige’s Star Wars movie

The head of Disney’s Golden Goose, the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Kevin Feige is also set to try to bring his success to Star Wars sometime in the future, but we have no idea when or if it will even happen. Kathleen Kennedy’s last update on the subject came in a Vanity Fair story from May, when she said, “I would love to see what movie he might come up with. [...] But right now, no, there isn’t anything specifically.”
