I can imagine that, many years in the future, there will be people who are watching The Mandalorian in what appears to be the proper sequence. They’ll move from the Season 2 finale on to the Season 3 premiere, and wonder how Grogu can be back and where Mando got his new ship from. Then months later they’ll try Book Of Boba Fett out of curiosity and go, “Oh, so THIS is where that happened?”
Disney+’s next Star Wars series is Andor, a prequel to the fan favorite “Rogue One” movie. Soon you’ll be able to learn what led up to the events that themselves led up to the events of R2-D2 getting the Death Star plans….or something.
Disney’s theatrical offerings for Star Wars have been spotty at best, but one consensus most people can agree on is that Rogue One was pretty good. You’re officially getting more of it. That story will soon be expanded in Andor, a two-season series coming to Disney+ late this summer.
The future of Star Wars is….definitely NOT in the theaters. After overcooking the franchise with three rushed sequel movies and a couple of spinoffs, Disney noticed how The Mandalorian made a significantly larger cultural splash than Rise Of Skywalker, and decided “fine, it’s a TV thing from now on.” All the theatrical projects Lucasfilm has announced in previous years are now “on hold.”
Disney had to have something planned for May the 4th, right? We were expecting the reveal of an entirely new Star Wars thing, but instead we got another trailer for a show we know is coming and will be here by the end of the month. The show is called Obi-Wan Kenobi, and you can guess what it’s about.
Koska Reeves the female Mandalorian becomes an instant fan favorite despite her low facetime. She is played by WWE superstar Mercedes Varnado aka Sasha Banks. Everything goes full circle now because when she was still wrestling in NXT she was about to be fired but William Regal risked his job to beg for her to be not released. Despite being a big star in the making, WWE had sidelined her over the charisma vacuum Charlotte Flair. Now she could be the biggest Star of WWE who still works for the company.
One month and counting until the release of The Book Of Boba Fett on Disney+. To whet your appetites, Lucasfilm has provided a short teaser for the series today. It’s pretty short, but it does consist of mostly new clips, and it hints that we may find out how Fett got to where he is now.
The book of Boba Fett is another Star Wars Spin off series. Boba Fett only has 6 minutes of screen time but he is a phenomenon with a community of fans. This character is popular enough to sell merchandise and now he is popular enough to have a spin off.
