The one-two punch of Star Wars Celebration, together with the premiere of Obi-Wan Kenobi’s first two episodes, have made for a reasonably packed weekend. Even in case you didn’t watch the every day livestreams of what was occurring in Anaheim, it could have been a tad troublesome to flee the orbit Disney and Lucasfilm’s moon-sized IP.
Whether or not you’re a fan of the franchise’s ever persevering with TV output, their renewed effort in direction of good video video games, or their literature, there’s quite a lot of fascinating issues on the horizon. For a lot of, probably the most thrilling bit of reports falls on The Mandalorian: its upcoming third season seems to have a a lot greater scope in a approach that eclipses the earlier two outings for Din Djarin and Grogu. Maybe that’s to be anticipated for the flagship of Star Wars’ new lease on life, however from the sound of issues, the look ahead to February 2023, and the driiiiiiiip feed of knowledge that’s absolutely to return, goes to really feel like torture for a lot of.
Talking of 2023, we lastly obtained ourselves a tough affirmation that Star Wars’ most nice shock in years could be making a return. After blowing everybody away with Jedi Fallen Order in 2019, Respawn Leisure’s managed to carve a while out of their huge schedule (that seemingly doesn’t contain Titanfall 3) to develop a sequel, Jedi Survivor. Given how nice Respawn’s monitor document has been, and the way its ending supplied itself some relative narrative freedom in its time-frame in between the Prequel and Unique trilogies, there’s little doubt that it gained’t be a great sport.
Earlier than that, although, we’ve obtained to get by the remainder of 2022, which isn’t essentially a foul factor. The brand new Tales of the Jedi collection sounds fairly enjoyable, as does Diego Luna’s Cassian Andor getting his personal miniseries. Later within the 12 months, we’re getting extra High Republic books, set in a brand new period that sounds much more thrilling than the final. And we get to spend at the least a part of the summer season with Ewan McGregor, which truthfully, don’t all of us deserve that at this level?
