Day 3 involved a lot of announcements about new merchandise that will be available online and in stores near you soon and few new insights to the long awaited Ahsoka series and more!
Most importantly though, Ewan McGregor let us know that he will back at Star Wars Celebration next year!
Let’s talk shows, movies, and games first:
— ‘Tales of the Jedi’ was today’s biggest announcement, set to premiere this fall on Disney+, this 6 part series will feature many familiar characters like Ahsoka, Count Dooku, and Qui-Gon Jin. While these tales will help us better understand our favorite characters not all of the stories will be so lighthearted as introducing us to baby Ahsoka and her mother. There will be minimal dialogue in these episodes, but the visuals tell us all the story we will need to know. Dave Filoni, Star Wars royalty, described this series as “Two paths and Two Choices.” This statement as well know is exactly Star Wars, the light and dark, how within us all we must find the balance.
–‘Star Wars: Galactic Pals’ has 6 episodes available with 6 more coming this summer to the Star Wars Kids website and Star Wars kids YouTube. There is new Galaxy of Creatures series premiering later this year too. Galactic pals toys are available at most major retailers now!
–The ‘Ahsoka’ series will feature Sabine, Cam, and Chopper!
–A new game ‘Star Wars: Hunters’ is coming in 2022 in iOS, Android and Nintendo Switch formats.
