Now that I have your attention I can tell you that the Nielsen Streaming Charts have added Obi-Wan Kenobi to their weekly charts. There is always a 4 – 5 week delay before Nielsen release the numbers, which is why their numbers for Obi-Wan Kenobi are only available now.

So how did Obi-Wan Kenobi perform? Fantastic. It’s one of the most popular Disney+ series ever and with just three episodes outperformed most other streaming shows available on Netflix and Amazon. Click through for more!

Watch The Bad Batch Season 2 Trailer!

The Bad Batch season 2 will be released later this year and Lucasfilm dropped the first trailer for the new season earlier today. So what changes are there in season 2? Omega gets a new outfit which looks to be more practical. The Emperor makes an appearance and it seems we may also see the Imperial Senate. And while the trailer is very light on plot it looks as though the Bad Batch may get involved with the very early rebellion, something that will certainly surprise very few people. But see for yourself when you watch the trailer, just click on the image below! How do you like it? Are you looking forward to more Bad Batch? The trailer certainly has quite a few epic moments. Let’s hope season 2 focuses more on the main story and less on random bounty hunter jobs for Cid, something that happened too often in season 1.

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?

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.

Kenobi Promo Artwork Has Leaked

Kenobi is about five weeks away from release, on top of the usual rumors and potential spoilers some tangible things leak as well, in this case some promo art (via the Star Wars Leaks Reddit) Lucasfilm will use to advertise the series. Check out the Kenobi banner below with Kenobi and Vader on opposing sides. I still wonder how they will explain the fact that A New Hope made it seem as if Vader and Kenobi had not met for a long, long time, probably since Mustafar, something that will no longer be true if the two actually clash in the series, unless it’s all some kind of dream or Force vision. Are you excited for the rematch of the century?
But let’s see how much Kenobi will actually be in Kenobi, or if the series will pull a Book of Boba Fett, Reva, the female Inquisitor, is said to play a very important role in the series… If you want to know more about that you can read very spoilery things about Reva on Bespin Bulletin. Don’t go there unless you want to read spoilers!

Lucasfilm operates the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel, which is home to various videos and short clips aimed at very young kids. The game show Jedi Temple Challenge hosted by Ahmed Best was moderately successful with about 1 million views per video, Galaxy of Adventures also enjoyed some popularity (a couple hundred thousand views per episode), but other things like Roll Out flopped, later episodes of Forces of Destiny underperformed and most of the other content on the channel gets maybe 10k-30k clicks per video, many videos even have less than 10k views. The channel itself has 283,000 subscribers, of course not all of them are kids. Toylines for both Galaxy of Adventures and Forces of Destiny flopped and every survey known to us (the fans) basically tells us that the average Star Wars fan is 30+ years old, and when we talk about hardcore fans (the people who buy merchandise or are stupid enough to fork over $6,000 for a 48 hour trip to a Star Wars hotel) it’s probably closer to 40+ years. But of course no franchise can survive without a new generation of fans, hence why both Disney/Lucasfilm and Hasbro try again and again and again to engage kids. And now we have the latest attempt at engaging kids: Galactic Pals. A show about a droid nanny that gives advice on how to raise little Wookies, Ewoks and lots of other Star Wars creatures. And it’s another flop. Yet again. Click through for more!

Christopher Lloyd Joins The Mandalorian Season 3

Great Scott! The Hollywood Reporter has learned that Lucasfilm has hired Christopher Lloyd for a yet undisclosed guest starring role in The Mandalorian season 3! Most if not all of you will know Lloyd as the Addams Family movies. And now Christopher Lloyd joins the Star Wars galaxy. Season 3 of The Mandalorian has a tentative release date of late 2022, so more or less two years after season 2 was first released. Who do you think Lloyd will play? A villain? An eccentric chaotic good character? Will he be friend or foe to Din Djarin? What would you prefer?

We last talked about the streaming ratings for The Book of Boba Fett two weeks ago, in the meantime Nielsen added episodes 5 and 6 to their charts. So how did the Mandalorian episodes with Luke Skywalker fare? After episode 4 The Book of Boba Fett had less than 600 million minutes streamed, an improvement after the previous decline with episode 3. Episodes 5 and 6 did give the series the much expected boost, but it’s still far removed from what The Mandalorian had. The Book of Boba Fett accumulates 776 million minutes with episodes 1-6, which is about the same as last week when episode 5 was added. Which is less than what WandaVision or Loki had, much less than The Mandalorian (1.34 billion minutes with the season finale added), but still pretty good and a lot better than things like Hawkeye or Falcon & Winter Soldier. But because of the competition The Book of Boba Fett dropped a few places, down to #7 now. The Book of Boba Fett is the only Disney+ series on the charts. Amazon Prime makes a rare appearance on the charts with Reacher, which took the #2 position with 1.84 billion minutes streamed over eight episodes. The charts are otherwise dominated by Netflix as usual. Let’s see if the series finale can improve the numbers. Samba TV reported their numbers several weeks ago and they claimed the finale perfomed much better than the Mandalorian season 2 finale, something which I find somewhat difficult to believe. Let’s see what the Nielsen streaming charts will say about that next week!

Pretty popular characters

John Williams Returns To Star Wars With Kenobi!

There have been rumors floating around for a while, but now Variety has made it official with an exclusive scoop: John Williams (who just turned 90 last week) returns to Star Wars once more. He recorded the Kenobi theme for the upcoming Disney+ series last week. It is not known yet if the theme is an all new original work or if it’s based on a previous composition. It’s also unknown at this point who will score the individual episodes for the Kenobi series. But with securing John Williams for Kenobi Disney certainly landed a coup, since the composer rarely works for tv / streaming. His last work for tv is from 1985. Quite a few fans may be happy that Williams’ last work for Star Wars will definitely not be The Rise of Skywalker now. Kenobi will debut on Disney+ on May 25th. 45 years to the day after the release of A New Hope.

Once more with feeling – John Williams returns to Star Wars

Star Wars Rumor Report Roundup

I love spoilers and rumors. Which is probably no surprise to anyone who knows me. Of course there are people who avoid them at all costs, which is perfectly fine, but I always felt that spoilers/rumors actually enhance the experience, it always helps me adjust my own expectations. I either look very much forward to seeing something after reading about a spoiler/rumor or I know that I should probably temper any expectations and brace for impact.

With that out of the way let’s talk about some assorted Star Wars rumors today, specifically, rumors about a few upcoming Star Wars Disney+ series, including Kenobi, which will be released on May 25th. So if you want to learn some rumors/spoilers (which of course, may not be entirely accurate, such is the nature of rumor reports) click through. Everyone else should absolutely stay away from this article!

Spoiler territory!
