The topic “Star Wars’ Next TV Show Gets Disappointing Release Update” has two versions, a written version below, and a video version below the written version.
The upcoming Star Wars streaming series may not end up debuting on Disney+ as initially anticipated by fans.
Star Wars enthusiasts had access to a consistent supply of material from the far-off galaxy throughout 2023. A number of new shows, including Season 2 of The Bad Batch, Visions, The Mandalorian Season 3, and now Ahsoka, premiered on Disney+ in addition to the eagerly anticipated news of three impending Star Wars movies.
Another 2023 MandoVerse episode, though, has yet to debut on Disney+, and viewers are now discovering why.
Update on Star Wars' Next Disney+ Show
The official new copyright filing from Lucasfilm for Episode 1 of the upcoming Star Wars series Skeleton Crew lists a 2024 release date.
The “Projected Date of Publication” for the series debut, which reads 2024-01 in the filing, indicates that Skeleton Crew has been pushed back from its original 2023 release window.
New Star Wars project Skeleton Crew is the fourth in Disney+’s growing MandoVerse.
The program, which will feature Jude Law, is anticipated to follow four young people who “make a mysterious discovery” that causes them to “get lost in a strange and dangerous galaxy.”
The release date for Skeleton Crew was first revealed by Lucasfilm at Star Wars Celebration in April.
Additionally, the series’ pirate-playing actor Jaleel White said in May that Skeleton Crew will premiere in November or December 2023.
However, the recent lack of marketing and the SAG-AFTRA strike caused many to anticipate a delay, which now seems to be verified.
However, it’s crucial to keep in mind that just because the first episode of Skeleton Crew has a possible January 2024 release date doesn’t mean the rest of the season will follow suit. That day might only be a placeholder, instead.
This data suggests a 2024 debut in the early part.
Skeleton Crew Crowds 2024 Disney+ Slate?
Since Skeleton Crew finished filming earlier this year, Lucasfilm’s decision to postpone the live-action series until 2024 is probably the result of schedule considerations and an effort to avoid rivalry.
Despite the SAG-AFTRA strike, Disney has a strong slate of blockbuster programs in the works, including Percy Jackson and the Olympians on Disney+ on December 20 and Season 2 of Loki, which runs through November 9.
With Marvel Studios’ Echo, the animated resurrection of X-Men ’97, three further Star Wars series, including The Acolyte, Tales of the Jedi Season 2, and The Bad Batch Season 3, the number of content will only grow in the next year.
However, given that Skeleton Crew has been delayed until 2024, it is possible that The Acolyte, another live-action program, will also be delayed into the following year.
In the interim, Skeleton Crew’s revised release timeframe and maybe a new release slate are anticipated confirmations from Lucasfilm and Disney+.
