What to Expect From ‘Star Wars’ in 2023

Lucus Films

With the new year almost upon us, it’s time to refresh our memory. Exactly how much stuff is coming to the “Star Wars” universe in 2023?

First off, dropping as soon as January fourth on Disney+, we have “The Bad Batch” season two. “The Bad Batch” is a spiritual successor to “The Clone Wars” animated show, and follows a group of mutant clones on the run from the empire. Based on the trailers so far, we can expect to see Gungi, a Wookie Jedi padawan from “The Clone Wars,” Commander Cody, and lots of unique planets and creatures. The season will run for 16 weekly episodes.

Then we have “The Mandalorian” season three. Coming March first, this is probably the one people are most excited for. If you haven’t seen “The Book of Boba Fett,” you definitely should, since Mando and Grogu get reunited in one of the episodes. Season three will be a little confusing if you haven’t checked it out yet. As per the other seasons, it’ll run for eight episodes.

The sequel to the video game “Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order” comes out March 17th. Titled “Jedi: Survivor,” it still follows the (now older) Jedi Cal Kestis as he navigates the galaxy with his crew. Gameplay footage has shown new mechanics since the first game, like being able to use a blaster, and ride animals instead of just fighting them. It’s releasing on Playstation, Xbox, and PC.

“Ahsoka” only has a release date of 2023. Based on some of the footage shown at Star Wars Celebration, we know that the show will effectively be a sequel to the animated show “Star Wars: Rebels,” with the character Ahsoka searching for Grand Admiral Thrawn and the lost Jedi Ezra Bridger. Another character from “Rebels,” Sabine, will be joining her, as well as Hayden Christensen returning to play Darth Vader, no doubt in flashbacks.

The show “Skeleton Crew” also only has a 2023 release date. Starring Jude Law, a released screenshot shows a “Stranger Things”-esque setting of a show about kids, but not necessarily for kids. An interesting premise, indeed.

In spring 2023, season two of “Star Wars: Visions” will drop on Disney+, like all the other shows mentioned so far. According to a Deadline article, while the first season of “Visions” had exclusively different anime creators do episodes for the anthology show, this new season will do something a little different. Instead of just animation from Japan, they’ll be expanding to episodes from studios in South Africa, Chile, England, Ireland, France, and India.

This doesn’t even cover all the new comics and books coming out as well. Are you excited for all this new content? Reach out to me and let me know!
