It looks like it’s now official – a teaser for Solo A Star Wars Story will air during Super Bowl tonight in the US. For us Europeans, we will have to wait tomorrow morning, but the good thing is that we will get the teaser and the trailer the same day! Good Morning America will air the full trailer for Solo A Star Wars Story (it should be between 2PM – 3PM GMT) tomorrow.
The Super Bowl teaser is 45 seconds long.
We knew a Obi-Wan Kenobi from A New Hope was coming in the S.H. Figuarts line for a while but we didn’t have a release date. Yesterday, they revealed it would be released in June! The price will be 6,480 Yen (around $59). Preorders on Japanese sites should start on February 1st!
A set of promotional pictures was also released. The figure will have an additional head with his eyes closed, to recreate the moment he dies in ANH, plus the cape alone for after Darth Vader strikes him down. There’s at least 7 interchangeable hands, a removable hood, the lightsaber and the lightsaber hilt. So that’s a lot of accessories!
German Bibliothek found the synopses for the episodes that will air on February 29! It looks like there will be some Force-centered content!
“Wolves and a Door”
Ezra and the Ghost crew learn the Empire has plans for the Jedi Temple on Lothal.
“A World Between Worlds”
While the other rebels engage the Imperial forces outside the Jedi temple, Ezra gains access inside and experiences a revelation.
The official synopsis for Solo A Star Wars Story has been released. There’s nothing really quite surprising in it, it’s things we already knew from what Kennedy and Iger had said in interviews. But this might mean the trailer is not far away now! The movie will be released on May 25.
Board the Millennium Falcon and journey to a galaxy far, far away in Solo: A Star Wars Story, an all-new adventure with the most beloved scoundrel in the galaxy. Through a series of daring escapades deep within a dark and dangerous criminal underworld, Han Solo meets his mighty future copilot Chewbacca and encounters the notorious gambler Lando Calrissian, in a journey that will set the course of one of the Star Wars saga’s most unlikely heroes.
Yesterday, The Star Wars Show posted a 27-minute video interview with the Lucasfilm Story Group explaining the secrets of The Last Jedi, it’s definitely worth the watch!
We finally know when Star Wars Rebels will be back for its final episodes and there’s still some time to wait – February 24! It also seems the show will be back with a one episode per week schedule. The synopsis of the episode “DUME” hints at the death of a major character and it could be Kanan, considering Dume is actually Kanan’s real name – Caleb Dume! Even if it’s not him who dies, someone from the team definitely does.
“Jedi Night”: The Ghost crew infiltrates the Imperial headquarters on Lothal to save one of their own.
“DUME”: Reeling from a devastating loss, the Ghost crew rallies together to find a new purpose and resolve.
UPDATE: Tracy Cannobio, Lucasfilm’s publicist said there was some incorrect info about the return date of Star Wars Rebels and that the official date will be announced within a week!

This was a great idea to release Rey in December, keeping the best for the end! This is S.H. Figuarts’s final Star Wars figure for 2017. As far as we know, the next Star Wars figure will be release in April 2018 (Darth Vader ANH and then TLJ Luke in May 2018) so it gives some time for fans to get the ones they didn’t get this year before having to save money for the new ones!
About Rey, she has 8 interchangeable hands, one additional head, her blaster, Anakin’s lightsaber, Anakin’s lightsaber hilt and her satchel. It’s a nice amount of accessories. The satchel is the one she has on Ahch-To when she is wearing her Resistance outfit but as Figuarts hasn’t released her in that outfit, I like that they included this accessory here. This figure of Rey has the outfit she gets in the second part of the movie. It’s reminiscent of what she was wearing on Jakku but in darker tones, echoing Luke’s change of outfit between A New Hope and Return of The Jedi. It’s a great outfit and Figuarts got it completely accurate, they have the sense of detail!
Likeness of the character is always important on figures like these and I’m not disappointed at all. They nailed it once again. It’s spot on, it looks like Daisy Ridley. And the second head with the angry facial expression really captures that angry Rey expression. I’m impressed! Seeing Rey has two heads, I wish they had done the same with the Kylo Ren figure, it would have been even better!
Rey is an amazing figure, I don’t have complaints about it, it’s just beautiful!
