Star Wars™: Rangers of the New Republic Announcement on Disney+
Star Wars™ has announced a brand new series called Rangers of the New Republic. The series is a spinoff from The Mandalorian™. The announcement came during Disney’s Investor Day, along with a slew of other shows like Ahsoka™, The Acolyte, A Droid Story, Lando™, and more!
While details about the series have been kept under wraps, creator Jon Favreau did share a bit about the series in an interview. Favreau explained that the series will be set right after the events of Return of the Jedi. He said, “That was a film that we all grew up with. I was an usher in the movie theater back in Queens when Return of the Jedi was playing so I saw that movie dozens and dozens of times at work and now it’s so fun to be continuing the story after that with some of those characters.”
