Even as Ahsoka is struggling to deal with the threat of Thrawn, Star Wars fans are excited about what’s happening elsewhere in the galaxy — and waiting (im)patiently for the arrival of the next show in the franchise, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew.
Announced back during Star Wars Celebration 2022, Star Wars: Skeleton Crew is a series about a group of kids who find themselves stranded in space, and have to work to make their way home. Created by Spider-Man: No Way Home director Jon Watts and writing collaborator Christopher Ford (and executive produced by The Mandalorian team of Jon Favreau and Dave Filoni), the show has been likened to The Goonies in space… but with the addition of Jude Law as someone who looks suspiciously like a Jedi, although Lucasfilm is playing coy on that one.
So when is the Star Wars:Skeleton Crew release date?
Also unclear is just when fans should expect the show to debut on Disney+. Initially announced as a 2023 release, that’s beginning to look slightly less likely given that we’re headed into the final three months of the year without any official release date for the show. That’s not to say it’s impossible — Ashoka’s release date was only announced two months ahead of time, meaning that we could still be on track for a holiday season release if we hear something in the next month or so — but increasing rumors about the show potentially being delayed could turn out to be true, especially given that Marvel’s Disney+ schedule has already been pushed out in the last few weeks.
Ahsoka will come to a close with its season finale on October 3, with the episode dropping at 6pm PST, 9pm EST. Perhaps by then, we’ll know when the next chapter in the ever-growing saga set in a galaxy far, far away is going to begin. (And if not, there’s always the option to rewatch Star Wars as a whole while you wait…)
