Everything

Jango Returns, Kennedy Lauded, Jewelry for a Princess, Star Wars VR, and the Trench Run.

Around the Galaxy: January 8, 2019

Like you I am sitting here wishing for a trailer to Star Wars: Episode IX to drop and brighten a snowy start to a fridgid Tuesday morning in New England.

However, I’m not holding my breath.

That said, I am looking forward to next Wednesday, and the next title in Marvel’s Star Wars: Age Of The Republic line – Jango Fett #1. I have really enjoyed this new series — if you can call it that — and I’m psyched to see how much backstory is given for Boba Fett’s dad.

In the meantime, artist Luke Ross shared some art from the book:

Kathleen Kennedy is on Variety’s 500:

Updated Oct. 30, 2018, the Variety500 reflects the accomplishments of its members over the previous 12 months. They were selected by the Variety editorial board, which conducted extensive research for its selections.

Key quote: Kennedy has produced or executive produced more than 60 films, racking up 25 Oscar wins and more than $11 billion in worldwide box office.

File this under fun fact — not the 1975 summit — but the origin of Princess Leia’s jewelry in Star Wars: Episode IV – A New Hope.

Not sure I posted this previously, but here’s to the future, and the present, of Star Wars VR.

Finally, here’s another plug for Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures – especially the trench run. The artists really got these right!

Be sure to point me in the right direction should you see any more grist for the Star Wars dustbin (@jmbishopjr, #AroundTheGalaxy)! JB
