This Week! Star Wars: LEGO & Mando & More….
Okay. Ok. So, it was a subpar opening. And the Ginger Jedi herself — Kristin Baver — owned it. However, Baver passed the buck to her future self with an eye toward the holidays.
The Baver Bunch, of whom I am a card-carrying member, will forgive her. “It’s the Jedi way….”
And with that, This Week! In Star Wars was off and running with stories covering the gamut between the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special and the casting of Anakin Skywalker.
Star Wars LEGO Holiday Cheer, A Mando Mondays Mystery, and More!
This week, in Star Wars we get festive with the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special’s brand new trailer, take a look at a Mando Mystery sneak peek from next week’s Mando Mondays release, and discuss all our favorite easter eggs in The Mandalorian Season 2 premiere episode. Plus, we rewind back to 1999 when casting began on Star Wars: Attack of the Clones.
Of course, the next upcoming event is the LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special.
MickeyBlog.com has been all over that story, so here is our latest blog post:
LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special | Official Trailer | Disney+
“The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special” reunites Rey, Finn, Poe, Chewie, Rose, and the droids for a joyous feast on Life Day. Rey sets off on a new adventure with BB-8 to gain a deeper knowledge of the Force. At a mysterious Jedi Temple, she is hurled into a cross-timeline adventure through beloved moments in Star Wars cinematic history, coming into contact with Luke Skywalker, Darth Vader, Yoda, Obi-Wan, and other iconic heroes and villains from all nine Skywalker saga films. But will she make it back in time for the Life Day feast and learn the true meaning of holiday spirit?
The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special is streaming Nov. 17 on Disney+.
No matter the IP, MickeyBlog.com loves covering the release of merchandise. And our writers covered “Mando Mondays”.
Mando Mondays Global Digital Launch Event
The first Mando Monday is here and it’s just the beginning. Star Wars fans across the globe can join us for a special Star Wars “Mando Mondays” digital event where talent from “The Mandalorian,” including Pedro Pascal, Carl Weathers, and Giancarlo Esposito, reveal the latest and greatest products and digital content inspired by the Emmy award-winning series. Mando Mondays is an all-new global consumer products, games, and publishing program that will debut new goods inspired by the Disney+ program every Monday from now until December 21.
And the final story this week is extremely close to my heart. Before the fabulous trailer for Rogue One, the below theatrical trailer for Star Wars: Episode 2 was my favorite. It set up my own viewing of the movie, so well. And I sawy Attack of the Clones, something like, 10 times in the theater. Great stuff all the way around.
