The official D23 website revealed several new events earlier today. Click through to learn what was announced!
Disney snuck this one in under the radar. This is a new Elite Series Die-cast 6″ six figure gift set that was limited to 500 pieces only. Unfortunately, the only new figure in there is the Scarif Stormtrooper which I think looks great. Hopefully, this figure makes it to retail in its own packaging along with the Premium Elites released at D23 later on this year. Thanks to JTA reader and friend Charlie for the find!
New character posters were revealed today for Star Wars: The Last Jedi at the D23 Expo. This follows the trend of character posters from the previous two movies. Click below to check out all six!
Rian Johnson appeared on stage alone since Kathleen Kennedy is apparently on set with Ron Howard at the ‘Han Solo’ shoot. They showed some behind-the-scenes stills and the brought out Daisy Ridley, John Boyega, and Gwendoline Christie (which Johnson joked about already trying to get GoT spoliers from) and then they brought out the newcomers Kelly Marie Tran, Laura Dern, and Benicio Del Toro. And, a behind-the-scenes sizzle reel. Read more after the jump
A user on Reddit recently uncovered the source code for the official Disney Parks Blog which had the words “Galaxy’s Edge” attached to it. I don’t know about you, but that sounds a HECK of a lot better than Star Wars Land. Though there is no official confirmation yet, it may be officially announced today so stay tuned. You can view the source code here. Thanks to JTA Reader Richard for the heads up!
Neither can I! Ever since it was announced, I was making plans to borrow my niece so that I could take a trip to Disney when it opens. It sounds so amazing with all the interactive properties that immerse you in A Galaxy Far, Far Away. And now the official Star Wars Facebook page has given us a look at the models for Star Wars Land (I sort of hope they tweak the title) that they revealed at D23 Expo. Click here to look at all the beautiful images.
Director of The Last Jedi, Rian Johnson, confirmed via Twitter that he will be attending D23 this week. It has been said that there will not be a new trailer shown at D23, but rumors suggest we will be getting a Behind The Scenes reel. We also don’t know in what capacity Rian Johnson will be participating, if at all, in TLJ panel. He could very well just be attending for the sake of attending, however, I think that is unlikely. More on this after the jump!
With the D23 Expo rapidly approaching, many people have been listing eBay pre-orders for the Exclusive D23 Droid Factory R5-D23 that was originally announced at SWCO. Obviously we’re all used to seeing the convention exclusive pre-order craze hit eBay, but I would expect not needing to pay scalper prices on this. Also planned are Hero/Villain Duo Limited Edition Star Wars Elite Series Premium numbered at 1000 only. These feature Rey/Kylo Ren, Jyn/Krennic, and Leia/Vader. I don’t know what is different from the regular releases, but hopefully something significant to warrant the $79.95 price tag. Special thanks to Charlie for the heads up.
Funko has revealed their D23 Expo Dorbz Exclusives. I personally do not collect these, but the Hoth Han looks pretty neat! Check out the rest here!
