The 5 New Wars Disney Plus Projects To Be Released In 2024
According to the latest issue of Empire Magazine, these are the five Star Wars series coming to Disney+ in 2024, as the franchise awaits its grand return to theaters.
Jude Law stars as a Jedi in Star Wars: Skeleton Crew, where he leads a group of lost children through an uncharted region of the galaxy. Although originally scheduled for a Fall 2023 release, plans for the series were ultimately changed.
The show takes place during the post-Return of the Jedi era, commonly referred to as the “MandoVerse” by fans. Rumor has it that some of the pirates who troubled Nevarro in The Mandalorian may also appear in Skeleton Crew, further anchoring it in this era.
While there is no official release date for Skeleton Crew yet, it is expected to debut in early 2024.
The Acolyte is a TV series created by writer-director Leslye Headland and starring Amandla Stenberg. It takes place during the High Republic era of the Star Wars universe, a period that was previously only explored through tie-in novels. This marks the first time the High Republic will be depicted in live-action.
The production of The Acolyte started in late 2022 and continued into 2023. The filming has already finished, and the series is currently in the post-production phase. Alongside Stenberg, the show features Dafne Keen from Logan and Manny Jacinto.
The Acolyte is set to premiere in 2024, as announced by Disney chairman Bob Iger in March of 2023.
The Bad Batch Season 3
The Bad Batch animated series, which has become a fan favorite, will be airing its third and final season in 2024. The series revolves around a group of genetically enhanced clone troopers who form an elite squad and must adjust to the changes in the galaxy as power transitions hands.
Dee Bradley Baker returns to voice most of the main cast, while Michelle Ang will once again play the part of their young clone sister Omega. The second season ended in tragedy for the heroes, leaving many viewers eagerly anticipating what comes next.
The third season of The Bad Batch is set to release in 2024, although an exact date has not yet been confirmed.
Andor Season 2
Andor, the sleeper hit, features Diego Luna who reprises his role as Cassian Andor from the 2016 film Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. The show premiered in September 2022 and received positive reviews for its complex characters and mature tone.
Production of the show’s second season was halted due to the writers’ strike and subsequent actors’ strike, but the crew is working hard to complete it as soon as possible. In a recent interview, showrunner Tony Gilroy revealed that Lucasfilm had initially planned for the second season to be released in the summer of 2024.
Despite the delays caused by the strikes, Andor Season 2 is still set to be released next year, which is surprising news. The show is expected to be released in 2024, and fans can’t wait to see what the next season has in store.
Tales of the Jedi Season 2
Tales of the Jedi is a series of animated shorts that unveil new stories set in the Prequel Trilogy era of Star Wars. It follows the same animation style as the well-known Clone Wars series and introduces us to fresh adventures with characters like Ahsoka Tano, Count Dooku, and even Yaddle.
A second season of Tales of the Jedi is currently in the works, although it hasn’t been revealed which characters and time periods it will focus on. Nevertheless, it is set to premiere on Disney+ in 2024, and all episodes are expected to be released simultaneously.
There’s More Star Wars Yet To Come
Lucasfilm has announced that it will be focusing on producing Star Wars TV shows in the upcoming year. However, the studio is also working on several feature films that will bring the beloved franchise back to the big screen. One of these movies will be a crossover featuring the characters from the various Mandalorian TV series. This film will be directed by Dave Filoni, who was recently appointed as the studio’s chief creative officer.
Another film in development will be directed by James Mangold, who previously worked on Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull. This movie will explore the origins of the Force, the Jedi, and the ancient history of the Star Wars universe.
Sharmeen Obaid-Chinoy is developing a Rey follow-up movie, which will star Daisy Ridley. No official release dates have been announced for the three Star Wars movies.
