What you need to know
- Disney Investor Day brought us the biggest expansion of the Star Wars universe since Disney first acquired Lucasfilm.
- There will be ten new series in the Star Wars universe coming in the next few years on Disney+.
- Rangers of the New Republic and Ahsoka are new series in The Mandalorian universe, which will combine in a storytelling event.
- We also got confirmation that Hayden Christensen is returning to the role of Anakin Skkywalker in the Kenobi mini-series!
Disney Investor Day may not sound fun — and, yeah, it's not as awesome as a day at Galaxy's Edge — but this day is important in that it's a multi-hour sizzle reel of upcoming content that Disney has planned in the near future. While today mostly focused on Disney+ and the future of ESPN+, Hulu and the coming global expansion of Star (formerly HotStar), there was great news for Star Wars fans: we're getting a lot more new content in the coming years.
First off, we're getting ten new Star Wars series on Disney+ in the next few years. That number includes the Kenobi mini-series and the upcoming Andor, around Casian Andor from Rogue One. We're also getting two newly-announced series: Rangers of the New Republic and Ahsoka, which give Ahsoka Tano a show of her own after having to share with Anakin and Obi-Wan for so many years!
Disney+ will, of course, be where everything announced today will eventually end up, and if you haven't gotten on that bandwagon just yet, now's the time to pick the best Disney+ deal and get into the magic.
