Star Wars on TV and in video games: what awaits us in 2022?

Star Wars on TV and in video games

This is how Star Wars is done: for a few years it disappears from the radar, it is less talked about because no film is released in the cinema, but in the meantime Lucasfilm and Disney work on its boundless universe, adding more and more details and information in the form of novels, comics and video games.

Disney + has changed the cards a bit. The television experiment worked: The Mandalorian was incredibly successful and filled the cinematic space that periodically empties. In short, Star Wars is seen more often. Some might say that you see it too often, someone else that you don't see it as often as you should. It's hard to get everyone to agree on the issue.

We'll be discussing it a lot in 2022, it seems. There are no movies in sight, but it looks like Disney wants to push the accelerator and do something very similar to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Star Wars. After The Mandalorian, Visions and The Book of Boba Fett, which has just started, it will be the turn of new TV series. In the meantime, there are some video games in the works that we await with great interest, but only a couple will be released in the next few months, excluding unexpected surprises.

Let's see what awaits us in Star Wars 2022 on TV and in video games.

The Book of Boba Fett

The Book of Boba Fett, a scene from the first season Considering that only two episodes have been released (find here the review of the first and here that of the second chapter) , it was worth starting this roundup with The Book of Boba Fett, a TV series that will accompany us until February. If you have read our reviews, you will know that Chapter 1 did not thrill us, while Chapter 2 seems to have framed the Jon Favreau series in a more restricted perspective, which perhaps could disappoint the viewers of the last hour, but that instead it will appeal to those who love and know the Star Wars imagery and want to learn more about alien species and their customs, or about the minor conflicts of the criminal undergrowth. We will continue to follow it with great attention, so come back to our pages every week to discuss it with us.


Andor, Diego Luna in a scene from the film Rogue One Unfortunately the TV series expected after the conclusion of The Book of Boba Fett do not yet have a precise release date, but we know that the next to see the light should be Andor, and that it could arrive on the small screen by the summer.

Because of his questionable moral, Cassian Andor is perhaps the most memorable character of the excellent Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, the first cinematic spin-off a few years ago that tells how the Rebels managed to get your hands on the plans of the first Death Star. The series will take place five years before Rogue One - and therefore Episode IV: A New Hope - and will tell the beginnings of the Rebel Alliance from the point of view of the protagonist, played once again by Diego Luna, and his inseparable droid K -2SO. The cast also includes Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Fiona Shaw, Denise Gough, Kyle Soller, Genevieve O'Reilly and Forest Whitaker, who returns to interpret the character of Saw Gerrera, already appeared in the spin-off and also in the television series in computer graphics .

Obi-Wan Kenobi

Obi-Wan Kenobi, a preliminary illustration of the TV series Probably the most anticipated TV series of the year, Obi-Wan Kenobi will follow the adventures of the world famous Maestro Jedi ten years later Episode III: Revenge of the Sith. We will meet Ewan McGregor - here also as executive producer - in the desert of Tatooine to watch over the little Luke Skywalker from afar, but in the cast there will also be Joel Edgerton and Bonnie Piesse, who will reprise the roles of Owen and Beru Lars respectively, and above all Hayden Christensen, who will certainly put on the Darth Vader costume, but who could also appear as Anakin Skywalker in some flashbacks. Maybe we will see the first meeting between Luke and the hermit better known as Ben Kenobi that will change his life?

Originally conceived as a spin-off of the A Star Wars Story series, Obi-Wan Kenobi has changed formats following the disappointing result of Solo: A Star Wars Story at the box office, and will arrive on Disney + later this year , presumably by autumn.

The Mandalorian 3

The Mandalorian, a scene from season 2 The first and second seasons of The Mandalorian have had extraordinary success and for this reason Dave Filoni and Jon Favreau took a year off to think about how to better continue the story now that there is no longer Grogu, better known as "Baby Yoda": at the end of The Mandalorian 2 we saw him leave with no less than Luke Skywalker to train in the ways of the Force. We do not know if we will see the nice greenish alien again, but Din Djarin, always played by the good Pedro Pascal, will have his nice things to do: now he is the owner of the Dark Sword and the legitimate ruler of Mandalore, according to his customs.

The problem is that Bo-Katan Kryze, who helped him just to get back his sword and throne, may not agree. The new season should explore precisely this storyline, but we can't imagine the series without Grogu, and so we can't wait to find out if and how it will return to the scene at the end of 2022 on the Disney platform.

The Bad Batch 2

The Bad Batch, the protagonists in a scene from the first season of the Spiritual Heir of The Clone Wars, The Bad Batch told the Expanded Universe of Star Wars from an unusual perspective: for the uninitiated, the protagonists are the members of Clone Force 99 - nicknamed Bad Batch - and that is a group of genetically imperfect clones of Jango Fett that rebels against the Empire after Order 66.

This places the series immediately after Episode III: Revenge of the Sith and sometime before Star Wars: Rebels. In the sixteen episodes that made up the first season, we got to know the various protagonists better and traveled with them from one planet to another to return to Kamino, the place where it all began. The new season will explore a critical moment for Palpatine's Empire, which is the consolidation of the army and the first moves of the Rebellion. The Bad Batch will continue to touch on places and characters that are important to the Star Wars imagery, but we don't have a release date yet, just a generic 2022.

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga, the iconic duel of Episode V Let's move on to video games. After dozens and dozens of licensed LEGO tie-ins (The Lord of the Rings, Harry Potter, Pirates of the Caribbean and Indiana Jones, just to name a few) we have come full circle, which could only be Star Wars since everything is started in 2005 with LEGO Star Wars: The videogame. Postponed several times from 2019 onwards, the new TT Games game should see in the first months of 2022 on practically every platform. The British developer needed more time to refine what appears to be the definitive LEGO Star Wars: the game, in fact, will adapt all nine films in the Skywalker saga, including those already transposed into a video game in previous years, and which will be redesigned. from scratch. Suitable for young and old, LEGO Star Wars will offer a variety of stages and modes, as well as hundreds of different characters to collect and control. If you like Danish bricks and Star Wars, keep an eye on this title.

Star Wars: Hunters

Star Wars: Hunters, a scene from the gameplay Star Wars: Hunters is in more action multiplayer arena for Nintendo Switch, Android and iOS, set in the Star Wars universe and developed by Zynga, those of FarmVille: was there really a need? A question that will have to wait to be answered as the game will be released later this year - we still don't know exactly when - but that is starting to get a little less obvious now that we've seen the first trailer in action.

Star Wars: Hunters, in fact, seems to have good potential, but it was not the gameplay that caught our attention, but the colorful cast of characters that we can select to form a team of four players and give them to us. good reason in the various arenas of the planet Vespaara. There will be at least two game modes and the arenas will be inspired by the most iconic scenarios of the saga. Players will be able to customize their heroes with a plethora of cosmetic items that they can obtain by winning battles and possibly swiping their credit card in the inevitable store.
