A wise Jedi Master once said, "Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering." While it's unclear if there's any actual suffering going on, Star Wars fans are certainly angry about Disney+ Day's lack of content from a galaxy far, far away.
Disney+ Day included numerous announcements pertaining to Moon Knight, X-Men '97, Predator prequel film Prey, Willow, Chip 'n' Dale: Rescue Rangers, Darkwing Duck, Cars on the Road, The Ice Age Adventures of Buck Wild and much, much more. However, while many were expecting similar treatment for Star Wars projects like The Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian Season 3, Andor, The Bad Batch Season 2 or the rumored Darth Maul series, all they got was an Obi-Wan Kenobi sizzle reel... that was put behind a paywall on Disney+ instead of Twitter or YouTube... one day after leaking.
It’s no coincidence that this video shows BB S2, Andor, BOBF, etc
Something changed for whatever reason

Aside from the Kenobi sizzle reel, fans were treated to the previously announced Under the Helmet: The Legacy of Boba Fett special, which explores the history of Star Wars' fan-favorite bounty hunter.
While it's easy to assume the fans that are angry simply set their expectations too high, it was reported by several outlets that sources indicated the event would include footage from Andor, which recently wrapped production, as well as the aforementioned The Book of Boba Fett, The Mandalorian Season 3 and The Bad Batch Season 2. Some of the logos were even included in Disney+ Day marketing materials, leaving fans wondering if plans changed at the last minute.
As for the aforementioned Kenobi sizzle reel, it showed off some concept art depicting the rematch between Ewan McGregor's Obi-Wan and Hayden Christensen's Darth Vader, as well as an Inquisitor, stormtroopers and a slightly more grizzled Obi-Wan than fans are used to.
Beyond the previously mentioned Star Wars projects, Disney+ will also release Ahsoka, Lando, Rangers of the New Republic and The Acolyte, among other shows. There are also a number of theatrical films in the works, including ones from Marvel Studios President/Marvel Chief Creative Officer Kevin Feige, Thor: Love and Thunder director Taika Waititi and the recently delayed Rogue Squadron from Patty Jenkins.
