On Thursday, Star Wars Celebration kicked off with a bang in Anaheim, California. The four-day fan event is giving fans the inside scoop on what they have to look forward to in the coming years and there are a lot of projects to be excited about.
The new “Andor” series is going to drop this year, the new Jude Law original series called “Star Wars: Skeleton Crew” was just announced, and fans are anxiously awaiting a release date for “The Bad Batch.”
However, fans of The Mandalorian and Grogu didn’t get enough of his not-so-brief appearance in “The Book of Boba Fett” and are eager to see them back in action.

Although many Star Wars fans got to hear the news in-person in Anaheim, the official The Mandalorian Twitter account also tweeted the news.
“The Mandalorian and Grogu continue their journey in Season 3 of #TheMandalorian, streaming February 2023 only on @DisneyPlus,” they wrote.
According to Deadline, co-creators Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni were there to confirm the news. They also brought out Katee Sackhoff to reveal that she would be reprising her role as Bo-Katan Kryze, who first made her appearance in the animated “The Clone Wars” series.
Fans who were on the floor of the convention center also got to see a teaser for season 3, which was withheld from the public for now. More details will be revealed at “The Mandalorian” panel scheduled for Saturday. Filoni and Favreau will make an appearance, as well as other “special guests” that have yet to be revealed.
The panel, titled “Mando+ : A Conversation with Jon Favreau & Dave Filoni,” will feature a look back at past seasons “and a look ahead at what’s to come.”

On Thursday afternoon, the official Star Wars Twitter account posted the video for fans who were not able to attend the Celebration in California. “Watch the brand-new teaser trailer for #Andor, streaming August 31 on @DisneyPlus,” they wrote in the caption.
They revealed that two episodes of the show are going to be released on August 31. Showrunner Tony Gilroy revealed that twelve episodes have been planned for the first season and confirmed that twelve more episodes are expected for the show’s second season. A second season had not been confirmed until the panel. Filming for “Andor” season 2 is scheduled to start shooting this fall.
Gilroy revealed that the second season will cover the four-year gap that takes place before the film and lead directly into the events of “Rogue One” with its final scene, so it sounds like fans will not be getting a third season.
Season 2 of “Andor” is likely to debut in 2023 along with the upcoming “Ahsoka” live-action series that fans are looking forward to.
