Disney has revealed a new series of shorts, debuting on their new Star Wars Kids YouTube channel on November 30th. Called Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures, the shorts will use original dialogue and sounds from the Star Wars films to introduce the franchise to a new generation, condensing the content for younger audiences.
This is a genius move, with Star Wars Episode IX hitting theaters next year, and parents looking to find ways to get their parents invested in the franchises that they grew up. “Over the years, I’ve had so many of my friends who are parents tell me how much they wanted to introduce their kids to Star Wars but didn’t feel that their kids were quite ready for the movies yet,” James Waugh, VP of franchise content and strategy at Lucasfilm, told StarWars.com. “They wanted a way to celebrate the universe they love.”
Disney and Lucasfilm have finally shared a new full trailer for the upcoming Solo: A Star Wars Story, and it is a vast improvement over the last footage we saw of the film. The new trailer gives us plenty of new footage, and does a much better job at spotlighting the star-studded supporting cast, which includes Woody Harrelson (Venom), Emilia Clarke (Game of Thrones), Donald Glover (Atlanta), Thandie Newton (Westworld), Phoebe Waller-Bridge (Fleabag), Joonas Suotamo (Star Wars: The Last Jedi), and Paul Bettany (Avengers: Infinity War), among others.
The Ron Howard-directed film premieres at the 2018 Cannes Film Festival on May 15th, before making its debut on May 25th.
We’ve speculated for the longest time what the Untitled Han Solo Film will be officially titled, and with so many options to choose from, it only makes sense that my choice was right. Director Ron Howard took to his Twitter to announce that the film will be officially titled Solo: A Star Wars Story.
The official logo for the film can be seen above, with what somewhat seems like the most bland branding, ever.
The United Kingdom’s Post, Royal Mail, has officially unveiled an incredibly gorgeous new set of stamps to commemorate the upcoming release of Stars Wars: The Last Jedi. They feature Maz Kanata, Chewbacca, Supreme Leader Snoke, the newly introduced adorable Porgs, and the droids BB-8, R2-D2, C-3PO, and Rogue One’s K-2SO.
They’reillustrated by UK digital artist, Malcolm Tween, and are available for pre-order with a release date of October 12. Royal Mail says the four droid stamps have hidden details that can only be revealed through a UV light, which makes for an awesome detail for collectors.
