Star Wars news: Skeleton Crew and The Mandalorian Season 3

Posted Filed under

Mando and Grogu are back in February, plus Jude Law will lead a new Star Wars series. 

While the big excitement from the Star Wars Celebration Anaheim 2022 has been the teaser trailer and launch date for Andor, the Rogue One prequel series, it’s far from the only news from “a galaxy far, far away…”

Here’s a couple of other major pieces of news from the event…

Skeleton Crew

Disney+ will gain another new live action Star Wars series next year: Skeleton Crew.

The show comes from Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts and his writing partner Christopher Ford. It follows a group of 10-year-olds from a small planet who get lost and need to find their way home. While there are few other details so far, we do know one high-profile piece of casting; Jude Law is swapping the Wizarding World for the Star Wars universe to star in the series.

Skeleton Crew is set after Return of the Jedi in the same timeframe as The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and Ahsoka. Jon Watts, Christopher Ford, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni will all produce the show.

Interestingly, talking about the show, Jon Watts says “It stars four kids, but it is not a kids show.” Make of that what you will! Skeleton Crew is due to debut on Disney+ in 2023.

The Mandalorian Season 3

The long-awaited third season of The Mandalorian is launching in February 2023. A season 3 trailer debuted at the Celebration event – hopefully it will arrive online in the coming days.

At the Celebration, executive producer Jon Favreau confirmed the new season will see Mando and Grogu head to Mandalore. This follows the direction of The Armourer in The Book of Boba Fett Chapter Five: ‘Return of the Mandalorian’, where he was told he must atone for his transgressions after admitting he has removed his helmet.

We have learned that both Bo-Katan Kryze (Katee Sackhoff) and Greef Karga (Carl Weathers) will be making an appearance in the new run of episodes too.

While both of the above are for the future, Obi-Wan Kenobi launched today on Disney+. The show has dropped its first two episodes, with the remaining four due on successive Wednesdays.
