It is going to be a jam-packed weekend of Star Wars news coming from the bi-annual Disney D23 convention. Kicking off the first festivities tonight is our first look at a model of Star Wars Land provided by the official Disney Parks website. The new parks look beautiful as both are currently under construction at Walt Disney World and Disney Land. The planet landscape looks very similar to Yavin IV, with its lush green jungles.
Today Disney’s Youtube Channel released the eighth episode in the Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny series of shorts. Today’s episode is titled “Bounty Of Trouble” and features Princess Leia and Sabine Wren. In a classic bait and switch plot, Sabine uses her patented skills at combustible diversion to make it seem that Princess Leia is being kidnapped, when in fact it’s to offload a data tape. Only thing is, IG-88 (the real Bounty Hunter) is after them as well.
It’s been a real treat this past week to catch these eight episodes and I am looking forward to the next eight that will release in October. My young toddlers have also enjoyed this series and look forward to the toys that will soon follow.
Enjoy the video folks.
TMZ doesn’t do it often, but when it does boy do they drop the heavy imagery. Earlier today TMZ released not only set photos of the Han Solo spin-off film but an actual video as well. The scenes show off our first look at Alden Ehrenreich, Woody Harrelson, and Emilia Clarke. The set looks to be a collectors room or museum of sorts. The pieces within look damn fascinating and I have already spent an hour just gazing into those beautiful glass housings.
This sort of leak doesn’t tell us much and really does no real harm, however, it really sucks when the first images we get of the cast end up being portrayed like this. Sometimes I wonder if it really would hurt a production to get out official stills of the characters early before we get our first glimpse via potato phone. In any case, enjoy the images and video folks. Head on over to TMZ for their video on this big exclusive.
The level of evil that Imperial forces can unleash on the innocent has no bounds. The latest installment of the Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny series of shorts titled ” The Stranger,” features Jyn Erso saving a Tooka from the clutches of Imperial Stormtroopers. I’m not kidding folks, apparently, Imperial code 310 is the illegal possession of a cat. Having none of it, Jyn Erso springs to action against a small group of Stormtroopers. The modeling of the characters in these shorts are incredible and the music score brings a smile this author face as well. Great episode and one more to go until the next batch in October.
Enjoy the video folks.
Wow! We even got a new episode on the weekend. Earlier today we got episode six of the Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny series of shorts. This new episode titled “Imposter Inside” features a duo we have not seen in action for a while. In the high rises of Corruscant, Padme Amidala, and Ahsoka Tano battle an imposter assassin who is out to terminate the Senator. The action is swift, albeit a bit long in the thermo-detonator detonation. Both the characters and performance were great. Enjoy the short story folks.
The current run of the Star Wars: Forces Of Destiny shorts will continue for two more episodes. Then the series will return to the Disney Channel in October with eight more episodes.
Enjoy the short story folks.
