“The Mandalorian” is getting not one, but two new spin-off series on Disney Plus.

Disney announced on Thursday that it has two new series in development that are set within the timeframe of “The Mandalorian” — one of them bringing back guest star Rosario Dawson as Ahsoka Tano.

“Rangers of the New Republic” and “Ahsoka” will both debut on Disney Plus, beginning around Christmas 2021, according to USA Today.

Both spin-off shows will have crossover events with “The Mandalorian,” according to The Verge.

Disney released the news during an investors meeting on Thursday, and also revealed several other new “Star Wars” series that are in the works — including “Andor,” which will star Diego Luna of “Rogue One,” and “Obi-Wan Kenobi,” which will star Hayden Christensen alongside Ewan McGregor, according to Variety.

A series called “Lando” about “Star Wars” character Lando Calrissian and the animated series “The Bad Batch” will also be coming to Disney Plus, Variety reported.

Disney announced earlier in the event that they plan to release 10 new “Star Wars” series and 10 new Marvel series over the next few years, as well as 15 new Disney series and 15 new Disney movies for Disney Plus.
