Week In Review

Happy belated New Year! Travis here. It has been a while since the last time I said “it has been a while”. 2020 is over and the uphill climb towards the way things used to be is in full effect!. I am slowly getting back into the swing of things – easing my big toe into the waters of all things Star Wars – and trying to bring some fun stuff YODASNEWS.COM. So, while I work on other ideas for your Star Wars reading pleasure, it is time to talk about the last seven days. Get those units in the South Ridge repaired by midday and then come back here. It’s time for the Week in Review…

  • – A first look was given to the guest rooms in Disney’s Galactic Starcruiser, the Star Wars  themed hotel that is currently being constructed near Disney’s Hollywood Studios in Orlando, Florida. Boasting a 2 night “all-immersive adventure” the hotel is seemingly bringing the cruise ship experience to a luxury hotel…one that sends guests to a galaxy far, far away. Want to be waited on by an Ithorian at the ship’s bar? Ever wanted your hotel concierge to use his Lobot-esque, cyborg implants to book you dinner reservations? My lifelong dream of calling housekeeping and asking them to restock my mini-fridge’s supply of blue milk is almost a reality. The Star Wars Galactic Starcrusier 2 – night adventure is scheduled to open later this year.
  • – For almost 8 years Electronic Arts has had exclusive rights to create games in the Star Wars universe. That reign is now over. Rival video game maker Ubisoft has been tasked to create an open world game that takes place in the Star Wars universe. Although it is in the very early stages of creation, Ubisoft is sure to bring a fresh take to the franchise and offer an unique experience to video gamers everywhere
  • – It seems that K-2SO will not appear in the first season of ANDOR, airing on Disney+ in 2022. Recently, Alan Tudyk told Collider “They’re shooting it right now, I’m not in it. But, if it stays on the air, stories keep getting told, I’ll end up in there”. Of course, with the endless supply of magic and technological wizardry from Disney, anything is possible.
  • That is all I have this week. To be honest, it feels good to start writing again. 2020 was a festering pile of bantha poodoo and having the privilege to write for YODASNEWS.COM is one of the ways I am hoping to bring normalcy back into my life. I hope it brings a wee bit of sunshine into your as well. End of sappiness.
  • See you next time…
