The Episode IX panel was probably one of the most fun panels I've ever sat through. Worth watching just for Billy Dee Willams alone. A couple really big things I took out of this though besides the name & trailer was J.J. mentioning this takes place some time after TLJ, the whole group will embark on this mission, & the characters fighting the light & dark to face the bigger evil. Which left me like Colbert, who hosted the whole thing, wondering what the bigger evil could possibly be. Oh yeah, then there's the name Star Wars IX: The Rise of Skywalker, & a perfect teaser trailer. This thing has me so pumped, & if you're not convinced that's the emperor laughing in the background, Celebration cut to Ian McDiarmid himself to roll it yet again. I know we're gonna see more, but they could have my money based just on this. Luke's lightsaber's back, apparently so is some form of Luke, & Emperor Palpatine himself. This looks epic! The backflip over the tie fighter, Kylo's run-through Braveheart style, Lando back in driver's seat of the Falcon? A perfect send off for the Skywalker saga. The trailer's at the bottom if you haven't seen it. Check it out, & don't forget to let me know what you think in the comments, like, & share.Read More
Upon first glance the first teaser for Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures looked absolutely amazing. However, I couldn't really hear what I was watching at the time. When I got to a spot where I could hear, I couldn't help but notice although the animation looks friggin' amazing, a lot of the actual substance just looks like hyper-active retreads on the original films. Still not sure exactly what I think of that aspect. I'd know I'd much rather see some new material, but can't help but keep thinking how amazing this teaser looked. The shorts are coming Nov 30th to a new YouTube channel, Star Wars Kids, & will also air on Disney Channel & Disney XD. If the name of the new channel dosen't give it away, they're obviously aiming towards kids for this one. That doesn't mean we all won't love it though. The best thing is we don't have to wait to long to find out. The more I think about it, if these are as good as they look, I'd be down for a full animated version of the classics. Curious what everyone else thinks though? Are you ready to tread old grounds in animated form? Put it in the comments, like, & share.
