Lucasfilm’s Studio Showcase at Star Wars Celebration 2023 was packed with exciting reveals from that galaxy far, far away including three new live-action Star Wars movies from James Mangold, Dave Filoni and Sharmeen Obaid Chinoy, Daisy Ridley’s return as Rey in a film set after The Rise of Skywalker and the official trailer for Ahsoka.
Even though the weekend isn’t finished just yet, we have compiled all of the major announcements in one place for your convenience. Disney and Lucasfilm revealed a slate of films and television projects set in the Star Wars universe Friday during an event in London called Star Wars Celebration.
Daisy Ridley’s return as Rey in a new, untitled film was the greatest piece of news of the day.
‘Dawn of the Force’ Director James Mangold has confirmed that Star Wars will return to the Old Republic in his next film
One of the most popular eras in the expanded universe, Star Wars: The Old Republic, has been mostly ignored by Disney’s film and television adaptations. Yet, if the timeframe presented at Star Wars Celebration is any indication, that may soon alter.
Kathleen Kennedy, head of LucasFilm, spoke about her hopes for the future of the franchise just before multiple new films in the series were announced.

To illustrate Kennedy’s point, a graphic showing seven distinct time periods, among them The Old Republic, surfaced.
A Lando Calrissian Series is Still in the Works
Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy has confirmed that the Lando Calrissian TV series is still in development at Disney. After a long hiatus, Kennedy at Star Wars Celebration that the show starring Donald Glover is still in production, though he didn’t give any details on when we could expect to see more.
She remarked, “I can just tell you it’s still going and he’s extremely thrilled about it,” implying that Glover is on board with the project.
Kathleen Kennedy Head of Lucasfilm Says a Rogue Squadron Film is Still Possible
Kathleen Kennedy, head of Lucasfilm has claimed that despite Disney’s efforts to cancel the film’s development, it is still possible that Star Wars: Rogue Squadron will be made. In an interview with IGN at Star Wars Celebration, Kennedy gave optimism to fans who were devastated by the rumored cancellation of the film.
She mentioned Rogue Squadron, saying, “It absolutely is something that we still talk about,” while hinting that it might not return exactly the same. That’s something, regardless of whether it becomes a movie or a television series.
Producer Confirms Din Djarin is Not the Alone Focus of “Mandalorian”
Season 3 of The Mandalorian delves more into the culture and history of the Mandalorian people as a whole, prompting some viewers to wonder if the show is still primarily about Din Djarin and Grogu.
Yes, the fans are correct to question it, but executive producer Rick Famuyiwa has addressed those concerns. It turns out that Din isn’t the only one who may claim to be the titular Mandalorian. To IGN, Famuyiwa posed the question, What does that title mean? as the show progressed.
According to Dave Filoni, “The Next Natural Move” is a Mandalorian Ending
Many fans of Lucasfilm’s The Mandalorian anticipate that the upcoming film helmed by Dave Filoni will serve as a fitting conclusion to the series. Will it, though? The answer is very convoluted.
Filoni said he views the period when the movie is set as less of a “Mandalorian age” and more of a “New Republic period.” I’m not sure if I’d even call it a conclusion. The New Republic era is what I’m thinking of right now and it existed long before we started filming The Mandalorian.
We brought an old premise into the first season of The Mandalorian which is that there was a New Republic after Return of the Jedi and that the heroes still had to protect that Republic from the leftover Empire. Since that’s always been the case.
Rosario Dawson Put in 14 Hours of Weekly Practice
Actress Rosario Dawson put in 14 hours of training every week to perfect Ahsoka’s acrobatic combat style and stunts from The Clone Wars and Rebels. Dawson explained the problems of taking a character who had once only existed in animated shows and introducing them to the live-action universe.
We would be working off of just the most spectacular achievements that someone could design or imagine, so there are definitely challenges there. And then the question became, “How can we put that into practice?” The cohesiveness of the team was extraordinary.”
Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau Discuss Their Films
Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni, the creative force behind the hit show The Mandalorian are expanding their Star Wars horizons. Kathleen Kennedy made the official announcement that Dave Filoni will direct a Star Wars film set in the New Republic era at Star Wars Celebration.
The creators of The Mandalorian, Filoni and Favreau see this as the next logical step and “where the rubber hits the road,” although they are hesitant to name it the series last chapter. You can see Filoni and Favreau discuss their new project, how they plan to tackle the Star Wars universe and more in a recent interview
The Acolyte’s Showstopper is Coming to Put the Star Wars Galaxy to the Challenge
Leslye Headland, creator of The Acolyte told from the Sith’s point of view come to take on the Star Wars universe. Headland told at Star Wars Celebration that she came up with the idea for The Acolyte by questioning convention.
The fact that Palpatine became supreme Chancellor without Yoda’s knowledge is just one example of the many judgments taken by Lucasfilm that she questioned.
The Acolyte Showrunner Dissects the “Frozen” and “Kill Bill” Sequences
The Acolyte showrunner Leslye Headland clarified what she meant when she said that the program had been described as part Frozen, part Kill Bill. Headland said: There was a strong emphasis on the sibling dynamic and the antagonist was revealed to be a strong but misunderstood female character.
I couldn’t believe what I was seeing, there was so much of it. I couldn’t believe it was a musical cartoon. It was profoundly affecting me while yet admirably serving its genre.
According to Headland, Kill Bill serves as a really good reference for contemporary day martial arts movies. From the Shaw brothers to Akira Kurosawa’s samurai classics and even Ang Lee’s Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon obviously Tarantino got influence from a lot of the movies that our action team and a lot of our design team borrowed from.
