Our best look yet at Disney’s “real” Star Wars lightsaber.

Former TechCrunch EIC Matthew Panzarino got to touch it — something we’d heard was beyond the reach of mere mortals who don’t work for Disney Parks.

It looks just as mindblowing as ever. I am so damn jealous. Here’s how the lightsaber likely works.

Here’s the trailer for Star Wars: The Bad Batch’s third and final season.

Disney announced the Clone Wars spinoff’s renewal during its Celebration event last spring, and now fans can actually see it before it premieres on Disney Plus with three episodes starting February 21st.

Emperor Palpatine, Dr. Royce Hemlock, and Asajj Ventress make an appearance in this preview of the series that follows the vagabonding Clone Force 99’s movements after refusing to obey Order 66.

Ubisoft’s open-world Star Wars game is apparently coming out “late this year.”

A new Disney Parks blog post shared that release window for Star Wars Outlaws, as reported by IGN. Ubisoft had already announced that the game would be released in 2024.

Update January 2nd, 3:51PM ET: Actually, scratch that release window. The Disney blog post now just says that the game is set to come out in “2024,” and Ubisoft told Kotaku that the timing in that post was incorrect. Guess we’ll have to wait and see about more specific details.

These little droids could cause a lot of trouble.

Disney recently showed off bipedal droids that look exactly like something you’d see in a Star Wars movie, and now Disney’s Imagineers are testing the droids at Disneyland, as reported by Disneyland News Today. I love them!!


The Mandalorian’s season 3 finale didn’t need to answer every question

Rather than dotting every single i and crossing all of its t’s The Mandalorian spent its extremely adequate third season trying to forge new lore for lore’s sake.

Star Wars jizz is now called jatz.

In a galaxy far, far, away, jazz doesn’t exist. Instead, when you want to really blow on that horn you’re jizzing or jatzing. As AVClub recently noted, both words have technically been used to describe the musical stylings of the Star Wars universe over the years, with jizz gaining in popularity for extremely obvious reasons.

But in a recent short story collection based around Return of the Jedi characters, Max Rebo, the blue alien front man for the band that plays at Jabba the Hutt’s palace thinks back to other times he’s performed “jatz standards”. That means jatz is the official Disney-approved name for the music.

Wookiepedia, meanwhile, continues to embrace jizz.


Ahsoka touches down in Fortnite.

As promised when the new season launched, Star Wars heroine Ahsoka is now available in Fortnite (so long as you purchased the current battle pass). She has an adorable pet for back bling and her arrival also means the return of lightsabers to the battle royale island. The timing is also good: the penultimate episode of Ahsoka’s Disney Plus series is streaming tonight.

“Lock S-foils in attack position.”

Imagine owning Red Leader’s X-Wing. Not a starfighter, of course, but the actual miniature built and filmed by ILM for 1977’s Star Wars — with servo-controlled wings that really do swing into attack position.

The hero model was thought lost for 40+ years, but it’s now up for auction starting at $400K. It’s joined by “the most complete and best condition” Stormtrooper armor, an original Wah Chang Star Trek TOS tricorder, “one of only two hero Type-2 Phasers known to exist,” and Starfleet uniforms worn by Kirk, Spock, McCoy, Uhura, Scotty, and more.

Jabba’s beats to relax / study to.

When this “Nighttime at Jabba’s Palace” lo-fi soundtrack was shared in Slack, I made fun of it. But I’ve been listening to it for the past 30 minutes — it’s actually pretty good?
