Ahsoka: Everything We Know About The Disney+ Show So Far

"The Mandalorian" did more for the "Star Wars" franchise than can be adequately explained in a single sentence, but I'll try -- specifically, it was roundly beloved and opened up a whole new corner of a galaxy far, far away to be explored. Namely, live-action TV on Disney+. One of the first projects coming our way as a result of the show's success is "Ahsoka." The spin-off series will center on the fan-favorite character Ahsoka Tano, who made her live-action debut in "The Mandalorian" season 2 e...

‘Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian’ Clip Shows Mark Hamill on Set for His Big Scene

Star Wars has a long history of providing reveals, twists, and unexpected appearances that set the imaginations of audiences on fire worldwide. The extremely well-received Disney+ series The Mandalorian went so far as to bookend its first season premiere and second season finale with the respective reveals of Baby Yoda (no, I’m still not calling him Grogu) and, possibly even more shockingly, the appearance of young Luke Skywalker featuring a digitally de-aged Mark Hamill. We’ve known about the ...

‘Star Wars: The Bad Batch’ Season 2 Announced for 2022 by Disney+

Devoted fans of the series will probably disagree, but Star Wars: The Bad Batch almost feels like one of the most under-the-radar franchise offerings ever put out by Lucasfilm. From the outside looking in, it’s not surrounded by the same sweeping fervor inspired by, say, The Mandalorian that made that series such an immediate must-watch every week. But whatever the case may be, clearly there’s a The Bad Batch train and it isn’t stopping anytime soon. A second season has officially been confirme...
