The autumnal equinox happens later this week, Fall 2022 is officially on, and the showbiz news is piling up like the soon to be falling leaves. It's time for a round-up!

Warner Bros. has put a sequel to Constantine that reunites star Keanu Reeves and director Francis Lawrence into development, according to Deadline.  Akiva Goldsman will write the screenplay.  This is a different direction for media uses of the character.  The first film was released in 2005, but since then it’s been all TV: a live-action TV series in 2014-15, and in 2021 Warner Bros. was in early development on a Constantine series for HBO Max (see "’Constantine’ Series").

Legendary is reportedly shopping future seasons of the adaptation of Paper Girls, based on the Brian K. Vaughan graphic novel series (see "’Paper Girls’ Trailer"), after Amazon canceled it after one season, according to Deadline.  The series had excellent reviews, so there’s hope they may be successful.

Disney has officially removed Star Wars: Rogue Squadron from its release schedule, according to Deadline. This movie, helmed by Wonder Woman director Patty Jenkins, was announced back in 2020 (see "Investor Day") and then, pushed off during the COVID-19 shuffle of 2021 (see "'Star Wars' Pushed Off").  Now, it seems that the movie has officially been put on the backburner, making it one of the few Star Wars movies, even in pre-production, ever to be tossed into the proverbial "Sandcrawler."

Disney also shuffled a few other movies around on its release schedule.  On the live action production side, the reboot of The Haunted Mansion has moved from March 10, 2023 to August 11, 2023, and announced Mufasa: The Lion King, a pseudo-live action prequel to the 2019 Lion King movie (see "'The Lion King'"), which will open on July 5, 2024. They also moved an untitled Marvel movie that was set for February 16, 2024 to September 6, 2024. For the full movie release schedules for 2023, see "Geek Movie Calendar - 2023" and "Geek Movie Calendar - 2024."

On the animated side, Disney announced Wish, Elio, and Inside Out 2.  Wish stars Ariana Debose as Asha, a girl who wishes upon a star in an attempt to help save her community.  This movie will hit theaters on November 22, 2023.  Elio is a Pixar movie about an 11-year-old dreamer named Elio that becomes Earth's galactic ambassador, and will be released on March 1, 2024.  Finally, Inside Out 2 is the sequel to 2015's Inside Out (see "'Inside Out "), and will arrive on June 14, 2024.

Marvel Studios announced Daredevil: Born Again, a new live-action series.  This series will be a continuation of Netflix's Daredevil, which was cancelled in 2018 (see "'Daredevil' Cancellation Wasn't Due to Views") as Disney began to pull their IPs from Netflix in preparation for the coming of Disney+ (see "Disney Rolls Out Streaming Service Deets").  The series brings back Charlie Cox as Daredevil and Vincent D'Onofrio as Wilson Fisk, and will begin streaming in spring 2024.

Lucasfilm unveiled two new trailers, one for the Willow TV series and one for the Tales of the Jedi animated series (see trailers below).  Willow was greenlit back in 2020 (see "'Willow' TV Series Greenlit"), and will begin streaming on Disney+ on November 30, 2022.   Tales of the Jedi is an animated series was revealed back in May 2022 (see "'Star Wars: Tales of the Jedi' Series"), and will be streaming on Disney+ on October 26, 2022.
