To celebrate May the fourth, we take a look at all of the Star Wars content heading our way this year, there’s certainly plenty of it.
We’ve had four new films release so far, a pair of video games and some new animated TV shows. That constant output of content doesn’t look to be slowing down either as 2019 is set to be another busy year for Star Wars and the franchise’s millions of fans.
This year will see the unveiling of Star Wars’ very own theme park world at the Disneyland and DisneyWorld theme parks in the US.
The park will allow visitors to fully immerse themselves in the world of Star Wars in ways never before possible.
Galaxy’s Edge is set to arrive at Disneyland California on May 31 and will be opening at DisneyWorld Florida on August 29.
Following on from the successes of Star Wars Rebels, Resistance is the new show on the block that looks to bridge the gap between Episodes VI and VII.
The final episode of Season 1 of Star Wars Resistance finished by crossing over the timeline in The Force Awakens and Season 2, coming out later this year, will continue that story on.
One of the most anticipated Star Wars releases in 2019 is that of The Mandalorian, the first ever live-action Star Wars TV show.
The show is set to debut on Disney’s upcoming streaming service, Disney+, on November 12 this year.
Although, there is no news on a UK release date for both the show or the streaming service as things currently stand.
After Disney cancelled the long-running animated show after its takeover of Lucasfilm, The Clone Wars is back for one final season.
The show’s rocky departure left many fans calling for the show to return in order to tie up several of the series’ story threads that were left hanging by the show’s cancellation.
Just like The Mandalorian, Season 7 of The Clone Wars is expected to make its appearance on Disney+ in autumn this year.
After two disappointing video game releases from EA, fans of Star Wars have been calling out for a decent story-based game set in the galaxy far, far away.
And at long last, we may have just that on the horizon with Jedi: Fallen Order, releasing on November 15, 2019.
The game is set to take place between Revenge of the Sith and A New Hope and will tell the story of a Jedi Knight in hiding after Order 66 wiped out the vast majority of the Jedi.
While the game looks and sounds promising, don’t go expecting all that much from EA, remember the catastrophic launch endured by EA’s Battlefront II in 2017?
And finally, we come to the main event. Star Wars: Episode IX itself, The Rise of Skywalker.
After a two-year wait following the divisive Last Jedi, you can expect Episode IX to pull out all the stops to win back the franchise’s fanbase and with the return of Emperor Palpatine on the cards, we could be in for something special.
And that’s it, everything coming out this year from the Star Wars franchise and, as things stand, it’s lining up to be one of the strongest year’s in Star Wars’ history and we certainly can’t wait to feast our eyes on what’s to come.
