Yesterday we were teased about something called "The Star Wars Show" that would be coming very soon Today, the first episode dropped and turned out to be even more awesome than we anticipated. As the title implies, The Star Wars Show is a weekly seven minute long Star Wars variety show produced within Lucasfilm headquarters and released via the official Star Wars YouTube channel. It is hosted by Peter Townley and Rebels Recon host Andi Gutierrez. In a short period of time the trio covers a wide range of topics, including some of the latest news, an interview with filmmaker Duncan Jones, a Force For Change update, and a feature on highlighting the importance of a seemingly unimportant Star Wars character. One of the biggest surprises from the episode comes in the form of some never before seen footage from the Maz Kanata's Castle sequence in Star Wars: The Force Awakens!
Lucasfilm’s senior director of content and programming Mickey Capoferri said in a statement:
“There’s an abundance of Star Wars news and information right now and for the foreseeable future. The Star Wars Show will be the place for new and old fans to engage with every aspect of the franchise in fun and authentic ways.”
