New Star Wars Shows: Top 3 Shows We Are Excited About
New Star Wars ShowsNew Star Wars shows are coming to Disney+. The first to be released on Disney+ will be The Bad Batch, debuting on none other than May 4th, which happens to be tomorrow. I personally am not a fan of the Star Wars animation series (sorry to all The Clone Wars fans). This begs the question, which new Star Wars show are you most excited about? It only makes sense that when Disney purchased Lucasfilm in 2012 that the company was looking at it as a long-term investment, after all, it was a $4 billion price tag. In December, Disney announced nine new Star Wars shows (a tenth one was teased at the end of the last episode of the Mandalorian.)
Number one of my list would definitely be Kenobi. Who doesn’t want to know about Obi-Wan? Sure some of the questions Star Wars fans had about him from the original trilogy were answered in the prequel trilogy but what happens to him after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith? Not only do I love Ewan McGregor as an actor but I think it is so awesome that he came back to Tunisia in his motorcycle show, The Long Way Down. To add to my excitement, the building used for Old Ben’s house (this is how Luke first introduces his soon-to-be mentor in Episode IV) sits just 25 minutes from our office! Another visit to this fisherman’s storage shed is in my future!
The first time I was introduced to Ahsoka Tano was in the animated series, The Clone Wars. While I didn’t quite fall in love with an animated Star Wars series, I was intrigued by Anakin’s padawan and her tenacity (at least in the first few episodes I did watch). Fans were treated to seeing Ahsoka fight alongside Mando in Season 2 of The Mandalorian. I think Disney casting Rosario Dawson in the starring role as a Jedi-exile (is that a thing?) makes it all the more exciting to watch.
The Book of Boba Fett
Unlike Kenobi and Ahsoka, I’m not particularly drawn to The Book of Boba Fett by its actor. Perhaps I am ignorant but I don’t actually know much about Temuera Morrison other than he played Boba Fett in the second season of The Mandalorian and that I love his accent! For me, Ming-Na Wen playing Fennec does the job of enticing me to watch this show as she is a much more well-known and established actress in Hollywood. Actors and actresses aside, the bounty hunters in the Star Wars movies have always created curiosity in Star Wars fans. A little is explained in Attack of the Clones (the father-son relationship with Jango Fett) and the Mandalorian but there still seems too much mystery about these masked characters.
