- This week preparations are underway for a LEGO Life Day.
We paged through a preview of Bounty Hunters
number four and so much more.
Kristin Baver here.
Just looking for something important for today's show.
Do you know where I put my Life Day robes?
You know what? Me neither.
This is red, but this is not it.
So this show must go on.
Let's just get to the news.
You don't have to go to Kashyyyk celebrate Life Day this year.
"The LEGO Star Wars Holiday Special"
will premiere later this year exclusively on Disney+.
The charmingly irreverent animated feature
will reunite some of our favorite sequel trilogy
characters, including Rey, Finn, and of course Wookiee
of the year Chewbacca, to help us all find the true meaning
of the holiday spirit.
But this is Star Wars, so you can be sure there will also
be side adventures, light saber duels, and heroes
and villains like Luke Skywalker,
Darth Vader, Yoda, and more.
Head to StarWars.com/thisweek to find out more details now.
Hey, hey, comic fans.
Are you ready to take a peek inside another upcoming
This time we got our hands on a few pages
from "Bounty Hunters" #4.
The cyborg Beilert Valance is searching for the mentor
who abandoned him.
But it looks like he has a new sidekick?

and grab the full issue when it becomes available August 19
wherever you buy your comics.
But that's not the only sneak peek we have for you this week.
Right now on StarWars.com, you can read an exclusive excerpt
from "Star Wars: The High Republic: A Test of Courage"
by Justina Ireland.
I won't spoil it, but Avon Starros makes an appearance,
so be sure to give that a read at StarWars.com/thisweek
And we're just a few weeks away from "Vader Immortal"
hitting Playstation VR.
Originally released on the Oculus Quest,
the immersive ILMxLab virtual experience
puts your feet on Mustafar and the Force within your grasp.
On August 25, you can enter Vader's castle
to begin your training with the Sith Lord
through the magic of Playstation VR.

that debuted at Sony Entertainment's State
of Play broadcast last week, head to StarWars.com/thisweek.
This week in Star Wars history, back in 1997,
StarWars.com took us inside the regal dewback
for a little space opera biology lesson mixed with movie magic.
In a five part, behind-the-scenes, daily
documentary appropriately named "Anatomy of a Dewback,"
we got a lesson in the making of the digital creatures seen
on Tatooine in the special edition release
of "Star Wars: A New Hope."
The series included new interviews
with George Lucas and the special effects wizards at ILM.
It was also one of the first behind-the-scenes video series
to be produced by a movie studio specifically for fans
on the internet, like you guys.
Last week, we asked you to share your favorite moments
from "Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge"
so we can relive all the fun we had this season.
Angel shared this adorable photo of his daughter Kaylee
when she first discovered the very first episode.
Phil's favorite was when AD-3 would randomly say, "temple...
Is there an echo in here?
Our friend Jenn Fujikawa is also a big AD-3 fan.
But then aren't we all?
Unari loved seeing the training sabers.
And Tatooine Times enjoyed the Trial of Knowledge
and was amazed by all the details
the Padawans could remember.
If we played "Are you smarter than a Padawan?"
against any of those teams, I would totally lose.
That's it for this week.

the galaxy, check out StarWars.com

Thanks for watching, and may the Force be with you.
