Disney Plus subscribers probably still have a back catalog of shows and movies from 2022 to watch. That said, the streamer’s already gearing up to hit the ground running in the new year with a bevy of returning series like The Mandalorian and Loki and a few new ones like Ahsoka and Secret Invasion.
Though it doesn’t reveal all that much about any of the new series debuting next year, Disney Plus’ new teaser trailer for all of its forthcoming shows does make clear that the House of Mouse is sticking to its guns in 2023 by offering up even more live-action Marvel and Star Wars fare. Pedro Pascal’s Din Djarin and Grogu are both (obviously) returning for The Mandalorian’s third installment that’s slated to spotlight the return of Katee Sackhoff’s Bo-Katan Kryze, and the new sizzle reel features a new look at Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka’s eponymous ex-Jedi apprentice.
You can’t quite tell who’s a Skrull and who isn’t from the brief snatches of Marvel Studios’ Secret Invasion seen in the teaser. But it’s obvious that something has Samuel L. Jackson’s Nick Fury has stressed much in the same way that Owen Wilson’s Mobius and Tom Hiddleston’s Laufeyson seem exhausted by whatever madness will play out in Loki’s second season. Short as it is, it’s surprising how interesting the teaser makes Disney’s American Born Chinese and Pixar’s Win or Lose look while also squeezing in glimpses of Dug Days: Carl’s Date, Peter Pan & Wendy, and The Bad Batch season 2.
Of course, the teaser doesn’t make clear when most of these new things are slated to hit Disney Plus in 2023, but the wait won’t be long, as The Bad Batch’s second season begins on January 4th, with The Mandalorian’s third season following on March 1st.
