Sebastian Stan is Casted as the new Luke Skywalker, Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 is CANCELED, Terbus the Porg is made canon & MORE!
This April Fool’s Day the Star Wars Show had some surprising, out-of-the-blue-milk news that nobody saw coming.
One of the most exciting announcements was the casting of Marvel’s Sebastian Stan in the upcoming Star Wars standalone. Sebastian Stan has been recognized as Mark hamill’s official “Luke Alike” and “pretend son” in the past, and fans have urged Disney to take advantage of the possibility of creating a Luke Skywalker stand alone film featuring Stan. At last, Disney has acknowledged this passionate request and is finally beginning pre production on such a film. Carboni stated that the movie will be called “Moisture farming 101” and that Stan will indeed be portraying the iconic role of Luke Skywalker. The synopsis of the film, Moisture Farming 101 was also revealed; we learned that it will follow the adventures of young Luke on Tatooine just before A New Hope, including drinking blue milk, buying droids, harvesting moisture, and waiting for a chance to get off the planet that is farthest from the bright center of the universe. We are very excited for the film, and are looking forward to seeing Sebastian’s interpretation of Mark Hamill’s classic character.
While the news of Sebastian’s upcoming star wars film was indeed exciting, many fans were devastated to hear that Star Wars Celebration Chicago 2019 has been canceled. It is very sad, as thousands of people are now having to reschedule their entire week and do their best to get refunds. Nonetheless, Star Wars is still here to help and Andi was able to direct ticket holders to Geico for their SWCC refunds.
Studies show that Porgs make sad people 100% less sad, and Star Wars’ Name-A-Porg foundation will be available to the public in a time when fans need it most. Getting over the fact that there won’t be a Star Wars Celebration will hard, and getting the chance to name a Porg in the Star Wars Canon will surely help console the fans.
There was a lot of happy (and sad) news, but we are ready for anything Lucasfilm throws at us! What news are you most excited about? Watch the video and let us know in the comments!
