We know when Disney+ arrives next month that launch day will bring the first episode of The Mandalorian along with it. The live-action Star Wars series is probably the most anticipated part of the streaming service, and now we know when each of the episodes in the show’s first will arrive. But that’s not all.
Even though the general public hasn’t seen a single episode of The Mandalorian, the second season is already moving forward.

When images first emerged of the Americans actress clad in a metallic helmet and a skin-tight purple suit, the theories only grew more frenzied. Who is she? What ties does she have with Poe Dameron?

Star Wars Resistance has now certainly sailed into The Last Jedi era.
