Disney+ is home to a number of iconic brands but Star Wars is undoubtedly one of the service’s biggest drawcards. The Mandalorian‘s premiere launched Disney+ into hyperspace two years ago and the minds at Lucasfilm haven’t slowed down preparing new content for the streaming service.

Recently at Disney+ day, we got a peek at all the new Marvel and Pixar series coming our way, but Disney+ hasn’t forgotten Star Wars. There’s at least 9 new series in development over at Lucasfilm with both new and returning characters taking the spotlight.

Here’s every Star Wars series we have to look forward to on Disney+.

Every Star Wars TV series coming to Disney+

The Book of Boba Fett

The Book of Boba Fett

One of the biggest surprises from season 2 of The Mandalorian was the return of the iconic bounty hunter, Boba Fett. It turns out Fett wasn’t just there for a cameo and now has his own show picking up where the post-credits scene from the last episode of The Mandalorian left off.

Here’s what we know from the synopsis:

The Book of Boba Fett, a thrilling Star Wars adventure, finds legendary bounty hunter Boba Fett and mercenary Fennec Shand navigating the Galaxy’s underworld when they return to the sands of Tatooine to stake their claim on the territory once ruled by Jabba the Hutt and his crime syndicate.

Release date: December 29, 2021

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Another breakout star who is getting their own spin-off series is Ahsoka Tano. The Jedi warrior is famous in the Star Wars animated series but she made the jump to live-action in the second season of The Mandalorian.

We’ll see Rosario Dawson return to continue that storyline in Ahsoka as the Jedi seeks Grand Admiral Thrawn. Hayden Christensen is also expected to reprise his role as Tano’s past mentor, Anakin Skywalker.

We haven’t heard much about Lando Calrissian’s solo series since it was announced at Disney Investory day a year ago.

All we know is that it’s in development with Dear White People creator Justin Simien and will follow the adventures of the legacy character. We don’t even know if it will be Billy Dee Williams or Donald Glover returning for the role. Either way, it will be exciting to see more from the iconic smuggler.

Release date: TBA

The Acolyte

The Acolyte is one of the most mysterious new projects on the Star Wars slate. Little has been revealed about the series and it isn’t currently headlined by any big-name characters.

What we do know is that Russian Doll creator Leslye Headland is behind the series and The Acolyte will take viewers into a galaxy of shadowy secrets and emerging dark-side powers in the final days of the High Republic era.

Release date: TBA

If only we could make the jump to hyperspace and speed our way to a time when all these Star Wars series are on our screens.

In the meantime, you can catch plenty of other Star Wars content over on Disney+ right now.
