The D23 Expo is a landmark calendar event for fans of everything Disney, being the event at which news and updates are given on future releases and plans. Since Disney acquired the Star Wars IP, it has also become a key event for Star Wars fans looking to see more of their next favourite adventures a long time ago, in a galaxy far away… So, what Star Wars news was given during this year’s D23?

Tales of the Jedi

One surprise entrant to the D23 Star Wars segment was a new trailer for Tales of the Jedi, a short-story anthology series following the origins of fan favourites Ahsoka and Count Dooku respectively.




The animated series is set to examine various points in their lives, from early childhood to formative events that shape the rest of their Star Wars story. Tales of the Jedi is set to launch in its entirety on Disney+, on the 26th of October.

Ahsoka

Ahsoka is a fan-favourite character in the Star Wars universe, with large thanks to her significant role in the much-beloved animated series surrounding Anakin Skywalker. Ahsoka has enjoyed representation in animation, as part of The Mandalorian’s story and even amongst the Star Wars black series action figures – but when news first broke that Ahsoka was getting her own show, the response was overwhelming.

At D23, little more was revealed past a still of Rosario Dawson as the titular character – but Jon Favreau appeared to talk more about the development of the series. Fans will have to wait a bit longer, but fortunately not too long, as Ahsoka is slated to appear in the aforementioned Tales of the Jedi.

Andor

Andor has been patiently awaited since its initial announcement in 2018 – but D23 gave us a much-needed jolt of content in the form of a 90-second teaser trailer for the show ahead of its three-episode premiere on Disney+. The show concerns the years preceding the events of Rogue One, following thief Cassian Andor as he transforms into a revolutionary leader.

The Mandalorian

Perhaps the most hotly anticipated Star Wars news to come from the D23 expo relates to The Mandalorian – the runaway success series that tracks the adventures of be-helmeted bounty hunter Din Djarin, and the lovable antics of Grogu, affectionately known as Baby Yoda.

Fans have been awaiting news of season 3 for two years, though The Book of Boba Fett provided an interim reprieve in the form of two Djarin-heavy episodes. But a teaser trailer at D23 showed fans they didn’t have much longer to wait; season 3 of The Mandalorian is destined for small screens in 2023.
