In A New Magazine Article Disney Officially Outlines The Star Wars TV Plan

Disney lays out their future Star Wars plans for all of the Disney+ television productions, including release dates for new projects

Other programs from Lucasfilm are at various stages of production. In addition to season 3 of The Mandalorian, the studio is working on Andor, a prequel to Rogue One, Mandalorian spinoff Ahsoka, and The Acolyte, a film set in the High Republic. Official specifics regarding these series are hard to come by, as Lucasfilm and their creatives keep everything under wraps, as is customary. However, it appears that a concrete schedule for when people will be able to witness these projects has been established.

Information about release dates was provided in a big Vanity Fair feature about Star Wars' future on television. Andor will air after Obi-Wan Kenobi in late May at an indeterminate time this summer. Season 3 of The Mandalorian will premiere in late 2022 or early 2023. Ahsoka will be released in 2023, while The Acolyte will be released "slightly later." Grammar Rodeo, a new Star Wars series set after Return of the Jedi and characterized as "Amblin coming of age adventure flicks," is also in production. Jon Watts is the creator.

These adjustments are consistent with prior reports on the series' potential premiere dates. Andor is set to release in August, while The Mandalorian Season 3 is set to premiere in late 2022. (perhaps during the holidays). Ahsoka has only recently begun filming, so a debut in 2023 makes logical. There is still much to be done in that area. It'll be fascinating to see what information (such as definite release dates) is given during Star Wars Celebration next week. There will be further information (and maybe even video) during the convention's Lucasfilm Studio Showcase session, which will feature presentations from live-action directors. If Andor is arriving this summer, at least a sneak peek should be available.

The lack of a release date for The Acolyte might suggest that it won't be released until 2024. However, with Amandla Stenberg apparently cast in the main role and casting calls for other roles, the show is moving forward. The Acolyte might appear in late 2023, depending on how things go (all the scripts are written). Perhaps a segment of Celebration will focus on The Acolyte, bringing viewers up to speed on the High Republic period. The lack of an official title for Grammar Rodeo suggests how far away it is, but it will be intriguing to see what director Watts came up with for Spider-Man: No Way Home. The Spider-Man films in the Marvel Cinematic Universe were acclaimed for being poignant and amusing coming-of-age stories for young Peter Parker, so maybe he can do the same with Star Wars.
