Revealed today in London during the “Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” cast panel at Star Wars Celebration was Hasbro’s Star Wars Black Series “Jyn Erso” action figure — the first of new “Rogue One” products to be seen publicly.

The 6-inch figure was revealed by Jyn herself – played by Felicity Jones – with panel moderator, Gwendoline Christie who welcomed Felicity to the action figure club. “Jyn” will be represented across a variety of products – something fans will have to wait and see for themselves later this year, when all new “Rogue One” products launch globally at retail.

Star Wars: Episode VIII” has been very under wraps, without a title even announced–but it’s getting closer to being complete! The cast and crew just finished up the film’s principal photography this week. This major milestone for Episode VIII was commemorated by cast and crew via many heartfelt Instagram messages:

John Boyega talks about how it feels to have completed another Star Wars film.

Actress Daisy Ridley posted about the wrap as well, with a stunning photo of her with what I presume to be Luke’s lightsaber that called to her in Episode VII:

And that is a wrap on Star Wars Episode VIII. My heart is brimming. #reyout

Kicking off July 15th is Star Wars Celebration in London and it seems a new Rogue One trailer is not too far far away either.

For Star Wars fans this day is a force to reckoned with. ABC will be airing an hour-long special called Secrets of the Force Awakens: A Cinematic Journey at 8 p.m. ET. That’s awesome enough by itself, but the TV listing summary for this making-of special describes a three minute long Rogue One trailer. That’s a full minute longer than the teaser released earlier this year.

Fans located outside of Europe needn’t disappointed about not being able to attend this month’s Star Wars Celebration.  The three-day event, which begins July 15, will be live-streamed at StarWars.com and on YouTube. Lucasfilm’s weekly YouTube series The Star Wars Show announced the live stream with the program promising that the three-day broadcast will include celebrity guests, interviews with Star Wars fans and creators and panels from the convention, including a Rogue One: A Star Wars Story panel featuring director Gareth Edwards and Lucasfilm president Kathleen Kennedy.

Many fans expected that the Star Wars Celebration would likely bring a new Rogue One trailer, but they are also hoping for any news from Star Wars: Episode VIII and to maybe even learn the title of the new film. The film wraps up filming a week after the convention and is slated to hit theaters in December of 2017.

Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” is the first Star Wars anthology film, and up until this week just a teaser trailer has been released. In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weeklynewly revealed character pictures, descriptions, and plot details are featured. And in additional big news that has lots of fans talking, written right across the cover “Darth Vader is Back!”

EW

The plot, as described by Entertainment Weekly, takes place right before the events of “Star Wars: A New Hope”:

“Before Luke fired the blast that detonated the Death Star, before Leia launched R2-D2 to a remote desert world with secret plans for that battle station, someone had to locate and steal those schematics.

Turns out, it was a team effort.

In this week’s issue of Entertainment Weekly, we bring you an inside look at Rogue One: A Star Wars Story, which explores just how the Rebellion came to possess the information that revealed the fatal flaw in the Empire’s super weapon. It’s a battlefield heist that fans have been imagining for nearly 40 years, described in the opening crawl of 1977’s original Star Wars, with little details scattered throughout.”

46488vrt445883000-600x600

Felicity Jones plays main character Jyn Erso, who has been living on her since she was 15. She has a rough past, but is desired by the Rebel Alliance due to her fighting skills and knowledge of the Galactic Empire.

ro

Diego Luna portrays Captain Cassian Andor, who is working to help train Erso as a new, rough-around-the-edges Rebel Alliance recruit. Kiri Hart, chief of story development at Lucasfilm describes: “He conveys a fair amount of experience and the reality of what it’s like to do thisevery day, to try to figure out how to resist the Empire effectively and intelligently.”
846515888554100-600x600
Donnie Yen plays the devoted ally to the Rebel Alliance Cirrut Imwe. Although blind, he is still a great warrior. Lucasfilm president and “Rogue One” producer Kathleen Kennedy said about this unique character: “Chirrut falls into the category of being a warrior monk.He very much still believes in everything the Jedi were about.”
dg044484152999630-600x600
The character Baze Malbus, played by actor Jiang Wen, is a devoted friend of Chirrut who is very protective of him. Kennedy said, “He understands Chirrut’s spiritual centeredness, but he doesn’t necessarily support it.”
864531289888000-600x600
Riz Ahmed plays the Rebel Alliance’s hot-headed lead pilot Bodhi Rook. Although a bit short tempered, but has excellent technical skills when it comes to piloting.
dg4515572999630-600x600
Alan Tudyk has been in many Disney films as of late (Duke Weaselton in “Zootopia”, Duke of Weselton in “Frozen”, to name a few). Tudyk will make another return as character K-2SO, a droid in which director Gareth Edwards described as “the antithesis of C-3PO,” and “Kaytoo is a little bit like Chewbacca’s personality in a droid’s body.”
845882470000-600x600
Actor Mads Mikkelsen plays Galen Erso, the estranged father of Jones’ character Jyn Erso. As of now, the appearance of the character as well as why he has been separated from Jyn remains under wraps by Lucasfilm. Hart described Galen: “He’s one of those people that has insight into you know specific aspects of just how the universe works.”
46488226693000-600x600
Ben Mendelson plays Director Orson Krennic, a villain who commands a squad of Deathtroopers set out to destroy the Rebel uprising. Krennic wants to be in Emperor Palpatine’s graces, even if it means needing to sabotage Darth Vader to move above him in the ranks.
46813520000-600x600
Actor Forest Whitaker plays Saw Gerrera, a character fans have seen on “The Clone Wars”. He has a rich history with Vader, having fought alongside him when he was Jedi Anakin Skywalker.
We will be sure to be on the lookout for the latest “Rogue One” news. In case you missed it, you can check out the latest trailer below:

“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story” comes to theaters December 16, 2016.

State-of-the-art projection effects, dynamic lighting, lasers and pyrotechnics light up the night like never before! The music, magic and characters of Star Wars combine with special effects and fireworks to put you inside iconic scenes from the Star Wars saga.

You’ll be thrust into the middle of the action as you gaze upon Tatooine’s famous twin suns, fight through an army of Trade Federation battle droids, navigate a swirling asteroid field, rocket down the Death Star’s narrow trench and deliver a heroic final blow to Starkiller Base.

Gather your favorite Jedi, Jawas, Wookiees, droids and Ewoks for an experience you can only get at Walt Disney World Resort. The sounds of John Williams’ majestic Star Wars themes fill the air as the sights of twinkling lights fill the sky.

While a dazzling array of colors burst above you, imagine the awe-inspiring sights of exploding starships during a legendary Star Wars space battle—what better way to celebrate Star Wars than watching a show written on the stars!

Star Wars Rebels: Complete Season Two is coming to DVD and Blu-ray August 30, 2016. This release will delivers all 22 action-packed episodes of the hit CG animated series’ second season, plus exclusive, never-before-seen bonus material.

This thrilling continuation of the Star Wars Rebels saga depicts the continued efforts of the crew of the starship Ghost to defeat the evil Empire. The DVD will come backed with bonus material, and even more exclusive footage on Blu-ray! We absolutely love everything Star Wars in our home, so we can’t wait to own another collection of Star Wars stories.

Amid growing Imperial oppression on Lothal, the rebels are forced to seek out new allies throughout the galaxy and additional resources to sustain their fight against the Empire. With the help of Ahsoka Tano, the crew of the Ghost bands together with a secret rebel cell and ex-soldiers from the Clone Wars to join a fledgling alliance determined to restore peace and freedom to the galaxy.

As Ezra continues his journey to become a Jedi under Kanan’s guidance, the threat of the dark side looms large over the fate of the growing rebellion. Darth Vader himself will dispatch new Inquisitors to snuff any spark of resistance, setting the stage for a climactic showdown in which past lives will be revealed, terrible truths will be discovered, and the lives of our heroes will be changed forever.

Featuring the voices of Freddie Prinze Jr. (“I Know What You Did Last Summer”) as Kanan, Vanessa Marshall (TV’s “Young Justice”) as Hera, Steve Blum (“The Boxtrolls”) as Zeb, Tiya Sircar (“The Internship”) as Sabine, Taylor Gray (TV’s “Bucket and Skinner’s Epic Adventures”) as Ezra, Ashley Eckstein (Her Universe apparel) as Ahsoka Tano, Dee Bradley Baker (“American Dad,” “Phineas and Ferb”) as Captain Rex and all the clones, David Oyelowo (“Selma” and “The Butler”) as Agent Kallus and Sarah Michelle Gellar (“The Crazy Ones,” “Buffy The Vampire Slayer”) as the Seventh Sister Inquisitor.

Candace Payne, aka “Chewbacca Mom”, set internet records a few weeks ago when she captured the hearts of millions with her genuine, infectious laughter while trying on a Chewbacca mask.

With her instantaneous celebrity status, she spent the next week crossing the country being interviewed by talk shows and national morning shows. Her whirlwind week was topped off with a visit to the place where Star Wars lives and the Force is strong – in Disney’s Hollywood Studios at Walt Disney World Resort.

Candace, a die-hard Star Wars fan, and her family spent the weekend living their Star Wars dreams – encountering Jawas, evading Stormtroopers, and most importantly – coming face to face with Chewbacca at Star Wars Launch Bay.

Chw

Candace is scheduled to meet the original Chewbacca from the Star Wars movies, Peter Mayhew, at Fan Expo Dallas this weekend. The expo is a big comic convention held at the Dallas Convention Center. For $20, fans can take a selfie with Chewbacca Mom herself and a portion of the proceeds will be donated to charity.

The elaborate new Star Wars fireworks display, “Star Wars: A Galactic Spectacular” will begin nightly performances on June 17th at Disney’s Hollywood Studios.

The show will combine fireworks, pyrotechnics, special effects and video projections that will turn the park’s Chinese Theater and other buildings into the twin suns of Tatooine, a field of battle droids, the trench of the Death Star, Starkiller Base and other Star Wars destinations. The show, which will feature music from throughout the film franchise, will be punctuated with a tower of fire and spotlight beams, creating a massive lightsaber in the sky.

In addition to the roadwork and flyover ramps that are set to be added to World Drive over by Magic Kingdom and The Contemporary, it appears Disney has also filed other permit paperwork to add a new entrance to Hollywood Studios, as it expands with the new addition of Star Wars Land.

According to WDW News Todayplans are now underway to replace the World Drive vehicle entrance of Disney’s Hollywood Studios with an entirely new entrance guests can utilize off of Osceola Parkway.

According to permits recently filed with the South Florida Water Management District, the intersection between Wide World of Sports and Disney’s Art of Animation Resort will soon be home to exit ramps that will guide guests into the park while making room for the southern edge of Star Wars land at the very boundaries of Disney’s Hollywood Studios. Sections of Osceola Parkway will also be widened to handle the expanded traffic expected.

No word on whether or not the Buena Vista Drive park entrance would close, or possibly remain open as an additional entrance into the park, as Disney has not made any official announcements about this project yet.

Later this year, we will get our first taste of the Star Wars Stories movies, with “Rogue One.” The next planned stand-alone Star Wars flick, which has been getting incredible buzz despite not even having begun production, is the Chris Miller and Phil Lord (21 Jump Street, The Lego Movie) directed film about a young Han Solo for 2018.

Earlier this year, a short list was released for who might be cast as the beloved Harrison Ford-originated character. It seems that someone has finally been cast as of yesterday, according to numerous sources it seems that Alden Ehrenreich is now in final negotiations to play Han, being narrowed down from a search of about 2,500 potential actors. Ehrenreich was last seen in the Cohen Brothers film “Hail, Caesar!”

It is hard to picture someone else as Harrison Ford playing Han Solo, but I am still incredibly excited to see the film and learn more about the rogue’s back story!

The film does not yet have an official title, and is set to be released May 25, 2018.

Chewbacca Dog Harness

RRRAARRWHHGWWR… I mean woof! Get ready to turn your pup into the ultimate co-pilot with the out of this world Chewbacca Dog Harness! I wonder if having your pup wear one could cut the morning walk to 12 parsecs?

You can keep your best fur-riend safe while still looking epic in the Chewbacca harness that’s available from sizes extra small to large. The harness displays Chewie’s infamous brown fur, and signature bandolier, as well as nylon strap featuring two metal D-rings for attaching a leash securely. The dog harness also alleviates pulling and strain by distributing weight evenly across dog’s body. Of course if your furry pal is more of a Dark Side fan there is always the Darth Vader Dog Harness. So get ready to blast off for a dog walk that will seem like you were in a galaxy far, far, away!

Jedi Mom Shirt

I’m totally a Star Wars mom, and sure I tend to love the Dark Side characters quite a bit, but I’d like to think I am also a Jedi Master Mom too! This cute Star Wars Jedi Mom shirt by ShineDesignsTees on Etsy says exactly how I feel, and in glitter too!

Those who are strong with the Force, or just a mom fighting the galactic fight will love this Star Wars glitter shirt. Gold and Silver glitter contrast around the white for a bold look against the black fabric. The shirt comes in a variety of style options including regular t-shirt, v-neck and racer back tank styles. These also come in a wide range of sizes too, which many of us ladies always appreciate. I’m personally loving the v-neck tee pictures above. You can get your own from Shine Design Tees on Etsy Here!

Are you a Jedi Master Mom, or do you feel more like Darth Mama some days?
