New Mandalorian content on Disney+ for Star Wars Day - just $7!

The next Star Wars movie will be headed up by the actor and director of the Academy Award winning Jojo Rabbit and Thor Ragnarok, Taika Waititi.

It likely goes without saying, but release dates haven't yet been announced, for either Waititi's project or Headland's series.

Co-writing alongside Waititi will be fellow Oscar nominee Krysty Wilson-Cairns, who was screenwriter on 1917 alongside Sam Mendes, and also co-wrote Edgar Wright's upcoming Last Night in Soho.

The latest announcement from a galaxy far, far away comes after the news Russian Doll's Leslye Headland is now developing a new untitled Star Wars series for Disney+.

Disney unveiled more Star Wars content than the final episode of the Skywalker Saga, dropping the finale of the animated series The Clone Wars as well as the first episode in a documentary series about the making of the hugely popular spinoff series The Mandalorian, which was released on Disney+ in November.

Filmmaker Robert Rodriguez - whose credits include El Mariachi, Once Upon a Time in Mexico, Sin City and Spy Kids - confirmed that he is among those who directed a Season 2 episode of Disney+'s flagship series The Mandalorian.

Fans also can look forward to that day, seeming far, far away right now, when the next "Star Wars" movie is set to appear - reportedly in 2022.

Meanwhile, The Mandalorian's second season is now in post-production and Disney is working on two other new series: one based on Cassian Andor's life leading up to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story and another following the adventures of one Obi-Wan Kenobi.
