First Look! Disney Star Wars Toybox Figures

Check out early Photo Galleries and Collector Notes for the first wave of Disney Store’s Star Wars Toybox Figures. These are pretty nice and loaded with The Vintage Collection quality articulation. If Disney started making realistically styled action figures with this high level of quality, we think Hasbro would be in big trouble. They’re in between the 3.75″ scale and the 6″ scale which creates another whole problem for collectors on the fence about starting a new line. Click through to check out these three figures. We think you’re going to love them too.

J.J. Abrams Leaves A Paramount Project For Episode IX

Well, we have all heard by now that JJ Abrams has taken over for Colin Trevorrow as the Director of Episode IX, but THR also found out that he basically screwed over Paramount and a 10-Million Dollar obligation in order to take on the Star Wars project. You can read more about it at Geeze, drama has become constanty associated with Disney’s Star Wars movies! (although TLJ has been pretty smooth, knock on wood!)

Would Wookiee Weekend Work While Withstanding Wisecracks?

So far we’ve had Force Friday in 2015. Rogue Friday in 2016. And Force Friday II in 2017. For 2018, what would be a good product line launch name for Han Solo: A Star Wars Story? Unlike our headline, we’re “thinking” that Wookiee Weekend would be a nice use of alliteration, no?

A Statement Regarding Star Wars: Episode IX (Trevorrow Is OUT!)

This is what happens when a vision becomes a fabrication. Colin Trevorrow is OUT as director for Episode IX. Every last Disney Star Wars film has experienced turmoil. Now the second Disney Star Wars film has had a director replaced. This should come as no surprise, but dang if this isn’t shocking!

"Pulled From YouTube" The Last Jedi Commercials Air On TV

More to file under: You can’t make this stuff up. Despite efforts by Hasbro/Disney to pull The Last Jedi commercials from YouTube (as well as the many other places on the web they ended up), JTA reader Jason M. watched one of the same exact commercials in the comfort of his own home on the Cartoon Network. We’re NOT kidding. (The videos are still off of YouTube as of this post.) I wonder if the PR firms involved are still scrambling to try and get all of the replicated commercials pulled while they’re airing live on television as we speak. Pure insanity!

We posted something similar a couple of days ago, but this is now getting ridiculous. File under: Truth is stranger than fiction. Also file under: You can’t make this stuff up. JTA reader and friend Damian V. sends us images from his local Walmart that they’ve not only placed new TLJ merchandise in the clearance aisle, but have also reduced them to clearance prices. Let the madness continue. Disney: are you keeping tally yet?

What Could Be Done Better When It Comes To Product Leaks?

We know and feel the frustration of not being able to post all of The Last Jedi leaks. We’d like to hear your opinions on how Disney could handle this whole mess better. Perhaps they could sell the exclusive reveals to companies like Entertainment Weekly and io9 sometime around August 1st and then ship the products after the exclusive stories are published. Stuff is going to get out. Disney must conceded this. After all, this is the third time we’re experiencing this. It’s like wash, rinse, repeat. Anyway, do you have a better suggestion? Remember, don’t blame Hasbro. This is all on Disney. (Sure, Hasbro could lighten up on the free press they get from Star Wars fan sites once the stuff is leaked, but if you have any constructive ideas, please leave them in our comments.)

Is Disney Considering An All Star Wars Streaming Service?

Earlier this week, Disney announced plans to launch their own streaming service in 2019. The new service would include existing content and original programming, following the Netflix model. Disney has opted to end it’s existing distribution deal with Netflix. Beginning with their 2019 releases such as Toy Story 4, Disney’s proposed streaming service will be home to all upcoming Disney movies. While this deal will include Disney’s live action and animated films and upcoming Pixar releases, the company’s Star Wars and Marvel films were not mentioned.  According and to a report from TechCrunch, Disney CEO Bob Iger said they are still considering how to integrate Marvel and Lucasfilm titles and that they may launch their own standalone streaming services. What do you think about the possibility of an all Star Wars streaming service? Would you pay for a one stop shop for Star Wars content? Let us know!

The Ongoing Diversity Debate Finally Comes To An End....

….or does it? Ever since Episode VII was announced and we found out there was a female lead AND a black Stormtrooper, there was constant debates and some outright horrible statements being made. Then Disney put yet ANOTHER female in the lead role of their next Star Wars film; Rogue One. This has sparked many more debates on whether Emperor Kennedy is only looking to cast strong female leads, but now that is over! (maybe..) DigitalSpy published an article that finally put the ongoing diversity issue in terms the industry can understand….diverse casts make all-around more money! Read all about this here and let us know your thoughts in the comments below. (this should be fun)

DISCLAIMER: The term “Emperor Kennedy” is meant to be tongue-in-cheek and is not meant to be taken as negative views towards the diversity article. This is just a loving term I coined for humor.

Forces Of Destiny: Episode 5 "Beasts Of Echo Base"

Today’s episode is one that I personally love. It involves our dear Princess on Hoth and of course, Wampas! The Wampas in Echo Base was one of my all-time favorite deleted scenes, so it’s nice to see a bit more of that in this short, even though this is prior to ESB when they’re setting up Echo Base. In this episode, Wampas break into echo base while Chewie, Leia, and R2 try to deal with it! I’m enjoying these much more than I originally anticipated.
