Two new Star Wars TV shows that could tie-in to rumoured 2023 LEGO sets
With a number of LEGO Star Wars sets rumoured to be appearing in 2023, there are two upcoming Disney+ TV shows that could tie-in to new models.
A recent list has revealed the first rumours of potential LEGO Star Wars sets for 2023, with everything from possible minifigures and ships to UCS builds and a May the 4th promotion. Of course with so many Star Wars movies and TV shows to choose from, the theme’s designers already have an entire galaxy from which to make their selections.
However, as well as existing material based on a galaxy far, far away, two new Star Wars shows are currently confirmed to arrive on Disney+ in 2023, with potentially even more to follow next year. The first of these is Star Wars: Ahsoka, which will feature the continuing adventures of the former Jedi and once again star Rosario Dawson as the title character.
Little is known about the plot for the forthcoming limited series, although Hayden Christensen will be reprising his role as Anakin Skywalker and Natasha Liu Bordizzo will appear as the first live-action version of Sabine Wren alongside her Star Wars: Rebels teammate, Chopper. Production on the show is currently underway, with Dave Filoni in the director’s chair, and we’re hoping we might get to see some early footage at next month’s D23 Expo.
The second show that could spawn potential new LEGO sets is Star Wars: Skeleton Crew. The series was first revealed at this year’s Star Wars Celebration, with confirmation that it would be set after Return of the Jedi and feature Jude Law in an as-yet-undisclosed role. D23 Expo could once again be the place for a first look at the show, so be sure to follow the event’s livestream for more information.
Whichever new Disney+ Star Wars show ends up providing the inspiration for any new LEGO sets, each series could potentially generate numerous ideas for exciting minifigures, vehicles, dioramas and other builds. As usual with all rumours, nothing is official until confirmed by the LEGO Group, so do take all of this information with a heavy dose of speculation for now.
D23 2022 will be taking place from September 9 to 11, 2022, and a livestream of the event will be available on YouTube, Twitter and Facebook over the three days.
