Fandom News

  • Disney has announced the opening dates for Galaxy’s Edge. The one at Disneyland will open summer 2019 and the one in Walt Disney World will open late fall 2019. Not exact but it does give people something to go on.

Movie & Television News

  • Solo may be out, but you can still check out this behind the scenes featurette.

  • Variety also has an article on Solo giving a look at how the movie came to be.
  • Stepping away from Star Wars, there’s some new trailers out. I love westerns, and this one looks great. The Sisters Brothers will be out sometime later this year.

  • It’s hard to make a spook movie these days that stands out, and Down a Dark Hall doesn’t do that, but if you like spook movies, you might want to check it out in August. It looks halfway decent.

  • Getting back to westerns, there is Damsel, which also looks really good. Glad to see westerns making a comeback. It’ll be out next month, June 22nd.

  • They’re remaking Papillon. Not sure how I feel about this one as I really liked the original, and the new cast sure ain’t no Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman. It’ll be out in August.

  • If you like cheesey, dumb action movies and old B-list actors, then you might want to check out Black Water as it team sup Jean-Claude Van Damme and Dolph Lundgren. It’ll be out next month but this is one you’ll probably want to catch on Netflix.

  • There’s a new Jungle Book movie, this one is called Mowgli. This one is directed by Andy Serkis and has quite the voice cast. It’ll be out in October.

  • This one has a great cast but I’m not sure how exciting it will be. Political thrillers don’t always turn out well, but Shock and Awe has potential. It’ll be out in July.

Toy & Collectible News

  • You can own a piece of the Death Star via this ebay auction.
  • The Pennsylvania Star Wars Collecting Society has a new medallion they are offering to help raise funds for The Arc of Pennsylvania. Click here to check out the details and the new Luke Skywalker medallion.

  • Yak Face has a roundup of the rest: Obi-Wan Kenobi Force Ghost, Jawa, R5-D4, new clonetroopers, Han Solo in Carbonite, and Yoda.
  • And if you watched the latest episode of The Star Wars Show, they confirmed Hasbro is making a 6″ L3-37.
  • Hot Toys revealed their deluxe 1/6th scale Solo Han Solo figure.
