First Trailer For Willow Also Dropped!

It’s not Star Wars, but I would assume that almost any Star Wars fan is also a fan of Willow and has seen the classic fantasy movie with Warwick Davies, Val Kilmer and Joanne Whalley. So I guess a brand new Willow series trailer will interest quite a lot of people! Willow will be released on November 30th, with Warwick Davies returning as the titular character.

Click on the image below to watch the trailer on YouTube!

Joanne Whalley is also back, Val Kilmer apparently not (not surprising). In the trailer we learn that Willow is tasked with protecting a future empress, there are also hints of romance in the trailer, first between what could be the future empress and a young man, then Willow and a female dwarf, but also between two girls, oh my… let the meltdown on YouTube commence in 3… 2… 1…

What do you think? Are you happy to get a Willow sequel? Are Andor and then Willow enough to make you subscribe to Disney+ come late summer?

New Star Wars Series 'Skeleton Crew' Revealed!

The biggest news of today (so far) is the reveal of a brand new upcoming live action Star Wars series on Disney+ titled “Skeleton Crew”. Not very much is known at this stage, here is the blurb we have from Disney about the show:

The show takes place during the post–’Return of the Jedi’ reconstruction that follows the fall of the Empire, the same as ‘The Mandalorian,’ but its plot remains a secret. It’s created and executive-produced by director Jon Watts and writer Chris Ford, who made ‘Spider-Man: Homecoming’ for Marvel. A casting notice has called for four children, around 11 to 12 years old. Inside Lucasfilm, the show is being described as a galactic version of classic Amblin coming-of-age adventure films of the ’80s.

Variety reports that Jude Law will star in the series, so at least one adult main character will be featured in the series and with Jude Law Lucasfilm secured a very well known star. Lucasfilm has not been too successful with kid-centric content so far, most of which was low budget animated efforts on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel. With “Skeleton Crew” Lucasfilm is apparently trying to engage kids and families in earnest.

What do you think? Is a classical 1980s Spielberg style Star Wars teen / kid adventure something you are eager to see? Maybe with a possible Mandalorian crossover?

Watch The Brand New Andor Teaser Trailer!

Star Wars Celebration has kicked off with a few reveals and updates! First up is the first proper look at the brand new Andor series coming later this year on August 31st! Season 1 wrapped filming, season 2 will begin filming in November! While season 1 is set 5 years before Rogue One, season 2 will explore the timeline right until Rogue One. Disney also released a teaser trailer, which you can watch when you click through!

The trailer doesn’t show that much of Andor himself, but instead focuses on worldbuilding and showing us what the series, the setting, supporting characters and villains will look like and sets the tone for what to expect from Andor. It does look pretty impressive! But check out for yourself after the jump!

Happy 45th Birthday to Star Wars! Before Disney sucked the spirit out of the franchise much like how the Skeksis drained the essences from the podlings, there was a little film called Star Wars, NOT A New Hope, and it changed most of our lives forever. And we show gratitude to its Maker, George Lucas, for creating the greatest space fantasy franchise of all time.

As part of the Obi-Wan Wednesday the Reva Black Series action figure was officially revealed today on the official Star Wars website. Reva will also come to The Vintage Collection and the Retro Collection. And if you want to you can also buy a Funko Pop version of her! It seems Lucasfilm is going all in with Reva and that they want to push her to become the next fan favorite character.

The figure seems to have a cloth cape, which is ideal for an action oriented character that will probably do a lot of fighting. The other female Inquistor figure we have from Fallen Order did come with a plastic cape which hindered articulation. So cloth is certainly the superior choice here.

Pre-order for Black Series Reva starts Thursday at 10 am! Let’s see who can beat the bots this time!

Will you get Reva? Or will you wait for the series to air to see what kind of character she is?

Reva’s lightsaber HasLab was not the only thing that was accidentally leaked by Hasbro on their own Pulse website. A new Black Series “Selfie” line is coming. It’s basically a Black Series 6 inch figure with your own head. The exact details are still unknown  – where and how your head will be scanned – but price will be $59.99. Click through for a few more photos!

You all remember Patrick’s slip of the tongue when he accidentally revealed in a livestream that the Rancor would be the next Star Wars HasLab. Well, Hasbro is at it again and once more accidentally revealed the next Star Wars HasLab, on their own HasLab site of all things, before everyting was pulled down again.

The new HasLab will be for Reva’s Inquisitor lightsaber (the helicopter saber), cost will be $500. Launch is May 27th (the day the Kenobi series premieres on Disney+) and it will end on July 11th. Let’s see if this Star Wars HasLab will succeed again for a change after the Rancor failure. My personal opinion? $500 for an Inquisitor lightsaber is very ambitious. I feel a disturbance in the Force, as if millions of Star Wars fans groaned out in pain and rolled their eyes… but what do you think? Do you want a $500 Reva Force FX lightsaber? Or will you just order some popcorn and have yet another countdown party here on JTA on July 11th like last time with the Rancor?

Will it allow you to fly like a helicopter?

It’s nearly time again for another Star Wars Celebration. I will be heading west tomorrow morning to begin JTA’s coverage. I will be working some shifts at the Kentucky Star Wars Collector Club booth (booth 2682) at various times throughout the event while doing JTA coverage, so be sure to stop by and say hi! 

I’ve put together a portal page for all of the upcoming galleries to be collected in one place once they are posted. You can find a quick link graphic in the top right corner of our page for easy access. I will compile the day’s galleries each evening on that page, but you can also keep an eye on the front page for the real-time gallery uploads throughout each day.

Safe travels to everyone attending, and May the Force Be With You!

Walmart Exclusive TVC Ahsoka Tano and Grogu Arriving

The Vintage Collection Ahsoka Tano and Grogu orders are starting to arrive from Walmart.com. Let us know in the comments if you receive yours, and how they arrived. Thanks to JTA reader Travis for the report!

I received my Ahsoka Tano & Grogu from Walmart this morning.  The packaging is reminiscent of the original TVC Ewok Scouts and AT-ST Crew sets from K-Mart…and probably a good look at the future of all TVC packaging.  I’m sure others will be reporting this soon, too.  As always, thanks for all your work and your site. All the best!
