The Mandalorian is currently being touted as the most in-demand show of 2019, and Disney+ is ready to bring more Star Wars material to their platform soon. We know that an Obi-Wan series is set to start shooting in 2020, but we also have a schedule for Cassian Andor as well.
According to DiscussingFilm, the Cassian Andor series is eyeing a start in June 2020. With the Obi-Wan series set to begin shooting in July, it’s likely that Cassian could come out first.
As of now, the only Star Wars series undergoing production is the second season of The Mandalorian, and it’s possible that it will come out late next year. What’s also interesting is that there is a rumor going around that a Doctor Aphra series is also in the works. Since no other sources have confirmed that yet, I think it’s best we just take that Aphra news with a grain of salt.
Seeing as how The Mandalorian turned out, I think a series based on Star Wars' most morally ambiguous archeologist might actually be fun to watch. After all, she’s more smuggler than Bounty Hunter, and she has some fun side characters.
With Lucasfilm focused on the release of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, it’s likely we’ll get our big update when the hype for the movie starts to die down. It’s said that we’ll get the announcement for the 2022 Star Wars film in January. What are the odds we’re also going to find out what else is coming to Disney+?
No release date has been set for Cassian Andor or Obi-Wan, but The Mandalorian is now on Disney+.
