Upcoming shows and movies of 2022: Highlights
Star Wars: Andor
September 21, 2022
Andor is the latest Star Wars series at Disney Plus. It focuses on the early days of the Rebellion, with Cassian Andor, first introduced in Rogue One, finding his role in the fight against the Empire. Diego Luna stars as Andor, with fellow cast members Genevieve O’Reilly, Stellan Skarsgård, Adria Arjona, Denise Gough, and Kyle Soller. Tony Gilroy, who co-wrote Rogue One, is creator and showrunner.
Based on the 2000 novel of the same name by Joyce Carol Oates, Blonde charts the life and career of Marilyn Monroe, offering a fictional retelling of major events and focusing on Marilyn as the icon we see in films and magazine spreads more than real woman who few people truly knew. Directed by Andrew Dominik and starring Ana de Armas as Marilyn Monroe, the Netflix original film is one of the most highly-anticipated streaming movies of 2022.
A legacyquel to the classic 1988 fantasy film of the same name directed by Ron Howard, Willow will premiere on Disney Plus later this year as a follow-up series. With Warwick Davis returning as the titular Willow, the show follows a group of adventurers who work together on a magical quest to save their world from destruction.
Glass Onion: A Knives Out Mystery
One of the most anticipated movies of 2022 is the sequel to Rian Johnson’s sequel to his beloved 2019 murder mystery. Daniel Craig is back as Benoit Blanc, this time investigating the mysterious death of a guest at a tech billionaire’s private Greek island. Joining Craig this time are Ethan Hawke, Janelle Monáe, Kate Hudson, Edward Norton, Jessica Henwick, Dave Bautista, Kathryn Hahn, and more.
