The purpose of Star Wars Thrills is to put all the Star Wars news from the week of February 7, 2020 in one location. This week, we’ve got updates on Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, the new Star Wars hotel coming in 2021 to Walt Disney World Resort, more on the new Cassian and Obi-Wan Kenobi TV shows coming to the Disney+ streaming service, Funko’s Baby Yoda, behind-the-scenes looks at Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker, and 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!
Star Wars: The Rise of Skywalker News
Television News and Rumors
Ewan McGregor chats with Jimmy Fallon about his Disney+ Obi-Wan Kenobi series and why he’s proud to play the chief misogynistic villain in Birds of Prey.
Around the Web
Kathleen Kennedy was asked when we’ll be getting a female director for a Star Wars film. She responded that they’ve already got them, with women like Deborah Chow and Bryce Dallas Howard directing The Mandalorian episodes and Chow also taking on the Obi-Wan Kenobi series.
But those are not movies, of course, so Kennedy was asked a follow-up question about the possibility of a Star Wars movie finally getting a female director. “Oh, absolutely, without question,” she responded.
Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser
Reservations will open later this year for Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser, which debuts in 2021 at Walt Disney World Resort in Florida. This new two-day and two-night vacation is an all-immersive experience that will take you to a galaxy far, far away.
