Today, during Disney’s Investors Day presentation several brand new Disney+ shows were announced. After her introduction in The Mandalorian star, Rosario Dawson will be returning to star in her long-rumored spin-off series Ahsoka. The series will follow the character as she hunts down Grand Admiral Thrawn across the galaxy. The studio also announced that a Lando Calrissian series is also in the works. They don’t mention which time period this series will take place or if Solo star Donald Glover will return for the project. Dear White People creator Justin Simien is developing the project for Lucasfilm.
The studio went onto announce several new projects including Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic which could be the rumored Cara Dune/Bo-Katan spin-off series starring Gina Carano & Katie Sackhoff. They also went onto announce Star Wars: Acolyte. Acolyte will be the previously announced female-led project that Russian Doll creator Leslye Headland was working on for the studio. The studio also announced The Clone Wars spin-off animated series The Bad Batch. As well as smaller projects like The Droid Story and Star Wars: Visions.
Finally, the studio went onto announce that Hayden Christensen will indeed be returning to haunt Obi-Wan Kenobi (played by Ewan McGregor) as Darth Vader. The actor was rumored to appear in the project earlier this summer for the show. Fans have speculated that he could appear as a premonition/dream that haunts Obi-Wan instead of physically appearing due to the events of A New Hope. Production was announced to commence in March 2021 in London. The studio also announced that the rebel spy Cassian Andor series is currently in production in London for the past several weeks.
All these Star Wars shows will stream exclusively on Disney+
