Now, we have a new show announced! Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic is going to be set in the same era of the Star Wars timeline as The Mandalorian, with the “next chapter” debuting Christmas 2021.
Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy stated, “Now with Disney+, we can explore limitless story possibilities like never before and fulfill the promise that there is truly a Star Wars story for everyone.”
Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni are concurrently developing two new series — the aforementioned Rangers of the New Republic and Ahsoka, which will also be interconnected with the adventures of Din Djarin (Pedro Pascal) and Grogu in The Mandalorian.
Disney also tweeted a confirmation of the upcoming show, noting:
Rangers of the New Republic, a new Original Series set within the timeline of @TheMandalorian, is coming to @DisneyPlus!
For now, we will just need to wait and see what Star Wars: Rangers of the New Republic has in store for us. It will be fun to watch the rest of the The Mandalorian Season 2 to see if there are any easter eggs that open the world of Rangers of the New Republic to the Star Wars canon.
