The Mandalorian Star Wars

There has never been live-action Star Wars television series. But come November, that will all change when The Mandalorian will debut along with a number of other original shows on Disney+, Disney’s exclusive streaming service. This will be one of Disney’s flagship shows that can only be seen on Disney+, and the studio hopes to use all of that anticipation and excitement to draw subscribers to their service.

Star Wars fans got a first look at The Mandalorian earlier this year when showrunner and executive producer Jon Favreau presented some footage and shared some info about the show. Now he’s back, with the debut of the teaser trailer; plus, and he brought along some of the cast to the D23 Expo today to show off what they can expect to see.

Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
Star Wars: Thrawn, Book 3
Written by Timothy Zahn
Narrated by Marc Thompson
Publisher: Del Rey Books | Random House Audio
Release date: July 23, 2019

Timothy Zahn returns with his denouement in his new canon trilogy of tales about Imperial Grand Admiral Thrawn titled Star Wars: Thrawn: Treason.

In it, Grand Admiral Thrawn butts heads with Director Orson Krennic over project funding. Thrawn believes the future of the Empire, at least in the years leading up to Episode IV: A New Hope, is his TIE Defender project. Krennic, on the other hand, is certain the Empire can only hope to survive if his Stardust* project even if it has been delayed and run a bit over budget.

Obi-Wan Kenobi

For a long time, Star Wars fans have hoped that Ewan McGregor would reprise the role of Jedi Knight Obi-Wan Kenobi in a spinoff film. While the spinoff rumors were met with mixed results, there was an increased amount of optimism when it was announced that Disney would be launching Disney+, the studio’s exclusive streaming service. With The Mandalorian and the untitled Cassian Andor series already confirmed, there seemed to be more than enough room for other Star Wars titles to exist on the streaming platform.

Now it has been confirmed that there will be an Obi-Wan series, and that it will see McGregor return to the role that he played in the prequels. More on the reports below.

Star Wars Alphabet Squadron by Alexander Freed

Hardcover | Kindle | Audiobook
Alphabet Squadron Trilogy, Book 1
Written by Alexander Freed
Narrated by Saskia Maarleveld
Publisher: Del Rey Books | Random House Audio

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order

For E3 2019 we saw a 14-minute gameplay demo for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, the long-awaited first single-player, story-focused Star Wars game since Electronic Arts landed the exclusive rights to make new games for Disney.

Now a 26-minute extended version of that demo of the game, which is developed by Respawn Entertainment, has been released. The longer gameplay demo, which was shown behind closed doors at E3, includes climbing an AT-AT—kinda like Shadow of the Colossus, Star Wars style—and even jumping inside that AT-AT and eventually taking control of it, as well as Rogue One‘s Saw Gerrera, who we saw in the game’s official trailer also released for E3.

You can find more info on Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order and watch the extended gameplay demo below.

Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order Gameplay

In April a reveal trailer was released for Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which publisher Electronic Arts promised would be the single-player game fans have been begging for since EA scored a deal with Disney giving them the exclusive rights to develop Star Wars games back in 2013. It’s been over six years since that deal was signed, and only multiplayer shooters Battlefront and Battlefront II, as well as a mobile game, have been released. With this game EA was finally promising no multiplayer and no loot boxes, just a single-player adventure to enjoy.

At the time it was assumed that we might see more when E3 2019 rolled around. And with the gaming convention kicking off this weekend, EA did just that by holding their EA Play event. During the presentation the first gameplay from Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order, which is developed by Respawn Entertainment, was unveiled. The video runs nearly 14 minutes long, and you can find it below along with more info on the game.
