Star Wars is assaulting every imaginable medium — here are just a few
Rebels ends next year but a liveaction Star Wars show is in development, arriving on Disney’s streaming platform in 2019. Whether it will make use of the 50-odd scripts developed for Star Wars: Underworld is unknown.
Younglings will devour Chewie And The Porgs, not to mention the Forces Of Destiny tie-ins. For grown-ups, the second instalment in Timothy Zahn’s new Thrawn series arrives in June.
Last Jedi tie-ins aside, Darth Vader and Poe Dameron have ongoing series, with a DJ one shot incoming, while a limited-run Thrawn series, based on this year’s novel, is set for early 2018.
While Battlefront II had a rocky launch (micro transactions lead to anger, anger leads to hate etc), EA has another, story-led game in the works. Meanwhile, Titanfall developer Respawn is also working on a super secret Star Wars tie-in.
Star Wars comes to California in 2019 when Galaxy’s Edge, the galacticthemed wing of Disneyland, opens to the public. You’ll also be able to stay in the site’s Star Wars hotel — binary sun views available.
