The Star Wars Saga Fan Supertrailer

Below is an epic five minute long trailer that uses footage from every Star Wars related movie to date to create a rather epic trailer for the franchise. Co-edited by Topher Grace (yep That 70s Show actor) and Jeff Yorkes, it is actually very good considering talking about 10 movies. At the very least it might be a useful way to introduce a newbie (good luck finding one of those) to the franchise.

Star Wars: Episode IX Wraps Principle Photography

In a tweet, director JJ Abrams revealed that Star Wars: Episode IX finished principle photography as the cast hugged it out. John Boyega also tweeted a message, "That’s a wrap on Star Wars episode 9 and the end to a chapter of my life that I couldn’t be more thankful for. What a process! It really has been a joy to be in these movies surrounded by amazing people. JJ thank you for making my dreams come true." This is about the sum-total of what we know of the film as Abrams successfully kept his cone of silence going throughout the production. The movie will hit theaters on December 20, 2019.

Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures Cartoon Shorts Series Trailer (Updated)

Disney has announced a new cartoon series of shorts called "Galaxy of Adventures" that will start on Friday on the Star Wars Kids YouTube Channel. The new channel exists to help parents indoctrinate their very young children into the Star Wars universe by presenting major moments from the original trilogy in cartoon form. Seems like some weird line is being crossed but whatever. Disney is just thinking the younger they are, they more money they will get over their lifetime.

Update: The six episodes are available now:

Luke Skywalker - The Journey Begins
Darth Vader - Power of the Dark Side
Luke vs. the Wampa - Cavern Escape
R2-D2 - A Loyal Droid
Chewbacca - The Trusty Co-Pilot
Darth Vader - Might of the Empire
