After Ahsoka ended its run on Disney+, Star Wars fans are wondering what the future holds for them. On the cinematographic level, Lucasfilm is not very talkative about its projects, even if a film should be released in 2025. In terms of series, however, the projects are going well. The year 2024 should also see the launch of three major productions on the streaming service with, it seems, quite a few new features on offer.
< p>In Skeleton Crew, which should be broadcast early next year on Disney+, we will follow a group of children lost in the vastness of the galaxy and who try to find their way. This project, which still remains quite mysterious for the moment, will feature Jude Law.
Jon Watts and Christopher Ford are the creators of the series. But we also find Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni as executive producers. This duo oversees all projects related to The Mandalorian (Ahsoka, The Book of Boba Fett) which should result in a film intended to close this story.
Concretely, this means that this new part will take place between episodes VI and VII where the New Republic tries to maintain order, and many contenders compete for the remains of the Empire.
< p>Also note that this original creation should be in line with the Amblin studio productions of the 80s. To its credit, classic films such asE.T. The Extra-Terrestrial, The Goonies, or even Back to the Future. We can therefore imagine a story that is similar to a coming-of-age tale that will appeal to children and their elders.
Andor (Season 2)
The season 2 of Andorshould also be offered in 2024. 12 episodes long, it will reveal the four years of Cassian Andor's life before the latter participates in the events of the film Rogue One.
Season 1 left fans with great memories. Many appreciate this very detailed description of the workings of the Empire and this presentation of the Rebellion from the base to the top. For once, Star Wars does not lapse into Manichaeism and offers us a nuanced version of this confrontation.
Regarding season 2, Tony Gilroy, the creator of the series, has already announced a slightly different narrative. He explains: “And I hope that what we are going to do in the second part will make the final result very satisfactory. Because the first year is really about its future, and the last part of this 12-episode installment will explain where we've been trying to get to. Then we will come back a year later. It will be very different.”
He adds: “The next four years (in the series Editor’s note) are not about becoming a revolutionary. It's about learning to be a leader and seeing how difficult it is to establish an alliance. We will also see what happens to people who are initially outlaws, in relation to the establishment, and many other questions. »
With The Acolyte (release planned for 2024), Disney+ could truly innovate by breaking away from the shackles of the Skywalker saga. This story will in fact take place a century before the events of episode 1, The Phantom Menace. We will witness a merciless clash between the Jedi and the Sith.
A first trailer has already been released as part of the Star Wars Celebration but unfortunately it was not released. made public. 8 episodes long, this production headed by Leslye Headland (Russian Doll) seems in any case to be on very good track, and we can't wait to find out more.
