This Week! In Star Wars: Mando, Boba & Books
We here in the Baver Bunch have reason to celebrate, today.
First, we got a brand new This Week! In Star Wars – and there’s goodness from The Clone Wars, The Mandalorian, and Boba Fett inside:
A Sneak Peek at Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, Join The Star Wars Show Book Club, and More!
This week in Star Wars, we get the first trailer for the upcoming Disney+ docuseries Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, Doctor Aphra gets her own audiobook original, we announce The Star Wars Show Book Club, and take a look at some of your favorite Star Wars quotes. Plus, travel back to 2010 when a young Boba Fett made his debut in Star Wars: The Clone Wars.
Of course, Kristin took some time to tease tomorrow’s new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars:
Star Wars: The Clone Wars | “The Phantom Apprentice” Clip | Disney+
Ahsoka leads Republic clones to confront Maul’s forces on Mandalore, while Maul senses the impending chaos and makes a calculated play to ensure his own survival in “The Phantom Apprentice,” an all-new episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars this Friday, April 24th on Disney+.
And we have a NEW show to look forward to!

Kristin also dropped the prose on us…. literally. She told us we have a new way to enjoy Star Wars in the Baver Bunch.

StarWars.com and This Week! In Star Wars are excited to reveal Doctor Aphra: An Audiobook Original, an expanded adaptation of the kinda good, kinda bad archaeologist’s introduction in Marvel’s Darth Vader series. In the story, Aphra makes a deal with the Sith Lord — never the best idea — and begins a memorable (mis)adventure.
