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.

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

After the events of The Book of Boba Fett we know that Mando and Grogu have another big adventure ahead of them.

The series follows an elite force of experimental clones who each harbour their own special skills. The trailer for season 2 revealed there will be a small time jump and that we’ll see the return of Commander Cody.

Release date: Spring 2022

Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi

Star Wars has always broken barriers with its animated series and that will continue in Tales of the Jedi, a series of anthology shorts.

The six episodes will focus on the lives of Count Dooku, Ahsoka and even Qui-Gon Jinn (who Liam Neeson will return to voice).

Release date: Spring 2022

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 and The Book of Boba Fett.

We’ll see Rosario Dawson return to continue that storyline in Ahsoka as the Jedi seeks Grand Admiral Thrawn. Star Wars Rebels members Sabine Wren, Hera Syndulla and Chopper are also expected to appear in live-action for the first time.

Release date: 2023

Star Wars: Skeleton Crew

Announced at Star Wars Celebration this year was a new series from Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts.

There’s not much to know about the series right now except that it centres around a group of children lost in space and stars Jude Law in a lead role. It will also be set in the same time frame as Ahsoka and The Mandalorian making it ripe for crossovers.

Despite starring children, Skeleton Crew is apparently “not a kids show.”

Release date: 2023

Star Wars: Visions Season 2

The successful anime/anthology series Star Wars: Visions is getting a second season and this time it’s going global.

Season one recruited a number of different Japanese studios to provide their animated takes on the galaxy far, far away. In season 2 studios from Japan along with Chile, the UK, France, South Africa, South Korea, India, Ireland and Spain will be given that chance.

Release date: Autumn 2023

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. Apparently it will feature Donald Glover returning as Lando in his younger years, but it’s unclear if Billy Dee Williams could also make an appearance.

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 known 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 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.
