From Anaheim in Los Angeles, the Star Wars Celebration 2022 has started this May 26, an essential event for fans of the universe created by George Lucas and to which, of course, Berta F. del Castillo, responsible for the galaxy in eCartelera and host of Tatooine Directo. The convention kicked off with the Lucasfilm’s Studio Showcase panel, a broad overview of the future of the production company in which not only ‘Star Wars’ has been discussed.
And first things first, the presentation could only begin with a tribute to those who really make it possible for the franchise to live forever: the fans. After two years of waiting due to COVID-19, people have come to the Anaheim Convention Center with their best cosplays and eager for news. The teams of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ and ‘Andor’ have taken to the stage, but we’ll talk about the latter later. With Kathleen Kennedy as the guiding thread of the panel, the cast led by Ewan McGregor has greeted and surprised those present by announcing that they were going to be able to see the first two episodes of the new Disney+ series that has already arrived at our homes this may 27th.
But not everything is pretty, Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni have also been there to confirm the worst omens: that ‘Ahsoka’ and the third season of ‘The Mandalorian’ will not arrive until 2023. Of course, from the Pedro Pascal series they have given those present and only for them an exclusive preview, but in her video Berta gives us a brief description of what she has been able to enjoy.
One of the big bombs of the day has been the news that the panel on ‘Skeleton Crew’ has left us, of which we knew little more than it was in development with Jon Watts and Christopher Ford piloting the ship. As we already told you here, the series will mainly star a child cast, although it will also be the gateway to the galactic universe of Jude Law. It will have a very 80s vibe and we won’t have to wait that long to see it as it will premiere on Disney+ sometime next year.
And leaving ‘Star Wars’ aside. In the panel it was also possible to see the first advance of ‘Willow’, a series that is set 20 years after the original film and that is again led by Warwick Davis. There was also room for another of Lucasfilm’s flagships, ‘Indiana Jones’, and Harrison Ford has traveled there first to melt in praise of John Williams and then to finally present a first official image.
And speaking of the composer, what a gift he has offered the audience with a small concert in which he has premiered the original soundtrack of ‘Obi-Wan Kenobi’ and has played other songs from the saga. Those that have not had their corresponding mention have been ‘The Acolyte’ or future films, although we know that at least the one Taika Waititi is going to direct we will see it on the big screen, but who knows when.
What do fans think of the ‘Andor’ teaser?
But back to ‘Andor’. In addition to a new poster, the series led by Diego Luna has released its first teaser trailer to the entire world and it seems that it has delighted both fans and detractors of ‘Rogue One: A Star Wars Story’. On first impressions of him, Berta has asked the attendees of the convention and this is what they expect from her:
‘Andor’ will land on the Disney+ streaming platform on August 31 with a first season of 12 episodes. But the thing does not end there, in November they will start recording the other 12 episodes that will make up the second season and that will end by connecting directly with the events of ‘Rogue One’. Therefore, the fork that ‘Andor’ is going to cover with these 24 episodes is only five years. And you, of all the novelties of the panel, which one do you prefer?
