Six LEGO Star Wars minifigures we’ll probably see in 2023 and beyond

Between Obi-Wan Kenobi, Andor and Ahsoka, Disney is going all-in on Star Wars TV shows, so here are six LEGO Star Wars minifigures we’re probably going to see in the next few years.

In a recent deep dive into the future of Star Wars over at Vanity Fair, Disney’s creative leads and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy outlined the future of the franchise, which is firmly focused on the mouse’s streaming service (the silver screen is seemingly an afterthought right now). At least three new series are apparently due to arrive on Disney+ over the next year, with many more to follow.

Given everything currently in the works – and the LEGO Group’s own focus on Star Wars TV shows, between The Mandalorian, The Book of Boba Fett and Obi-Wan Kenobi – we can make some educated guesses around LEGO Star Wars minifigures we’re likely to see in the next few years…

6 – Obi-Wan Kenobi

We’re not giving ourselves any credit for including this one, and not only because Obi-Wan isn’t exactly a rare character in the LEGO Star Wars line-up anyway. The LEGO Group has already confirmed that we’re getting at least one product based on the new Obi-Wan Kenobi limited series, which premieres next Friday, May 27, so the odds of a new Kenobi minifigure (based on his appearance in the show) seem almost certain.

5 – Cassian Andor

Another near-certainty, at least if there’s any truth in LEGO Star Wars rumours going around lately, is a new Cassian Andor minifigure. The Rogue One character is getting his own spin-off show later this summer, and word has it that we’ll be getting at least one set to go with it. If that’s true, the main man himself will surely be among the minifigure line-up.

4 – Mon Mothma

Also confirmed for Star Wars: Andor is another familiar face in Mon Mothma, the rebel leader who will once again be played by Genevieve O’Reilly, reprising her role from Revenge of the Sith and Rogue One. Our one and only LEGO Mon Mothma minifigure came all the way back in 2009, in 7754 Home One Mon Calamari Star Cruiser, so an updated version would be very welcome.

3 – Ahsoka Tano (The Mandalorian)

Probably the most notable absence from LEGO Star Wars sets based on The Mandalorian (and spin-off The Book of Boba Fett) to date is Ahsoka Tano, as portrayed in live action for the first time by Rosario Dawson. A version of the character – from the final season of The Clone Wars – is available in a couple of sets right now, but a new minifigure based on her post-Return of the Jedi appearance is surely inevitable given she’s getting her own series.

2 – Grand Admiral Thrawn

Do you own the one and only LEGO Grand Admiral Thrawn minifigure released to date? Congratulations: you’re sitting on a goldmine. The same might not be true in a year’s time, however, because Star Wars: Ahsoka is due to hit screens in 2023 – and seems likely to focus on Ahsoka’s search for Thrawn and Ezra Bridger, following the climactic events of Star Wars Rebels. (She namedropped the Admiral in The Mandalorian, for one thing.) If he does play a major role, it seems safe to expect a new minifigure for him next year.

1 – Young(er) Yoda

As Vanity Fair’s recent Star Wars piece reminded us, The Acolyte – a show we otherwise know precious little about – is part of the High Republic era, set approximately a century before the events of Star Wars: The Phantom Menace. The books and comics centred around the High Republic so far have featured a younger version of Yoda, and with how popular Grogu has proven in The Mandalorian, there’s a good chance we’ll see the wizened green Jedi in The Acolyte – and, therefore, any LEGO sets based on it.

He would still be 800 years old, though, so don’t expect him to be quite as cute as Baby Yoda.

I like to think of myself as a journalist first, LEGO fan second, but we all know that’s not really the case. Journalism does run through my veins, though, like some kind of weird literary blood – the sort that will no doubt one day lead to a stress-induced heart malfunction. It’s like smoking, only worse. Thankfully, I get to write about LEGO until then. You can follow me on Twitter at @brfa_chris.
