- "This Week!
In Star Wars" we got hyped on all the news that came out
about Project Luminous, and get a look
at the innovative tech at work behind the scenes
of "The Mandalorian."
Kristin Baver here.
Another week, another fun-filled episode.
Let's check it out.
As promised in last week's episode,
I have brought you the scoop from Project Luminous.
On Monday night, we learned that this massive
multi-publisher initiative will take
place in the all-new era of--
--the High Republic!
A few hundred years before the events of "Star Wars,
the Phantom Menace," the stories unfold at the height
of the Jedi's power as guardians serving
and protecting the galaxy.
So many questions were answered, but I still have so many
more to ask!
If you haven't already, check out
yesterday's episode of "The Star Wars Show"
to get a closer look at the event.
When occasional starwars.com guest writer and comedian
Bobby Moynihan sat down with Justina Ireland,
Claudia Gray, Cavan Scott, Charles
Soule, and Daniel Jose Older.
And be sure to keep your eyes peeled on starwars.com
throughout the year.
There's a lot more where that came from.
If you play "Battlefront II," you
may have noticed a few updates that
went live yesterday, as some new original trilogy
era reinforcements were added.
Now you can play as the Ewok hunter,
a cunning bundle of fur, and an ISB agent
armed with two RK-3 blasters.
You may also notice hero improvements,
reinforcement, and trooper updates,
and some other changes.
To get a full look at all the updates
to "Battlefront II," head to battlefrontII.com.
We are one episode into the final season of "The Clone
Wars," and it is so good!
Last Friday, we spent some time with the Bad Batch
in the premiere episode, introducing
Crosshair, Tech, Hunter, and Wrecker of Clone Force 99.
If you want to take a deeper dive into the episode,
be sure to check out starwars.com series "The Clone
Wars Download," a new online video show where you can hear
cast and crew, including executive producer
and supervising director Dave Filoni
chat about what it was like coming back
to finish "The Clone Wars."
And don't forget to tune into tomorrow's episode
of "The Clone Wars, A Distant Echo," on Disney+.
Starting this week.
You can also watch all of season two of "Star Wars Resistance,"
now streaming on Disney+.
That means it's time to get comfy and revisit Kazuda Xiono
and the gang aboard the Colossus as they
make their way in the galaxy.
And don't forget Tam.
Sure, she's exploring some different interests
in the show's second and final season,
but we know she still has heart.
Check out the full second season for yourself now.
And speaking of the streaming service,
last week we got a closer look at the innovative technology
that brought "The Mandalorian" to life when
our friends at Industrial Light and Magic
peeled back the curtain on stagecraft.
This technological feat of visual effects,
married with massive LED screens,
made the planet-hopping live action Disney+ series possible.
Head on over to ILM's YouTube channel
now, where you can watch a brief video
all about this game-changing marvel of movie making magic,
and see some brand new imagery from behind the scenes
of "The Mandalorian."
This week in "Star Wars" history-- back in 2000,
the Magic of Myth museum tour opened in Minneapolis.
The expansive traveling exhibit gave
fans an up close look at "Star Wars" costumes and props.
This was especially great for costuming fans and cosplayers,
because you could see all the details.
Look at those details in Lando's cape,
Leia's Cloud City costume.
That's it for this week.

galaxy, check out starwars.com.
And be sure to join us right here for "This Week!
in Star Wars" every Thursday.
Thanks for watching, and may the Force be with you.
