Star Wars Thrills: May the Fourth and More Updates!

-

The purpose of Star Wars Thrills is to put all the Star Wars news from the week of May 1, 2020 in one location. This week, we’ve got news about May the Fourth celebrations, Cassian TV series casting, new Star Wars LEGOs, a new look at Dark Rey, and much more!

If you read this each week, you should be able to converse fluently with any Star Wars fan on everything from the latest Star Wars developments to the latest toys. And maybe you’ll even share with them something that they might have missed.

Let’s get to it, and don’t hesitate to contact us if you have news or updates that you think should be included in the next installment of Star Wars Thrills!


May the Fourth Disney+ Art

On May the Fourth, Disney+ will honor the artistry that began more than 40 years ago and continues with the dedicated concept artists at Lucasfilm today. In addition to the arrival of Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, the series finale of Star Wars: The Clone Wars, and the premiere of Disney Gallery: The Mandalorian, beginning May the Fourth the streaming service will add concept art to celebrate each chapter in the Skywalker saga and beyond.

Like a commemorative gallery, each film and series’ artwork will be updated on May the Fourth to feature its original concept paintings. From Star Wars: A New Hope to The Mandalorian, the updated art will feature work from celebrated artists such as the legendary Ralph McQuarrie and Academy Award-winning artist, author, and production designer, Doug Chiang.

On the Disney+ home screen, the animated Star Wars logo will also get an upgrade with a new animation that honors the hyperspace jump that transports us all to a galaxy far, far away.
