It’s a great time to be a Star Wars fan! Not only has The Mandalorian returned to our screens over on Disney+, but this past weekend the biggest gathering in the galaxy happened in London, with the 2023 Star Wars Celebration. Across the four days, tons of announcements and trailers dropped for what’s to come to a galaxy far, far, away. So of course some of the writers at The Cosmic Circus couldn’t wait to break down every juicy detail from the long weekend of out-of-this-world fun.

Host Ayla Ruby, along with head writer Brian Kitson and fellow writer Wiktor Reinfuss come together in their Millennium Falcon and jet off to explore all the excitement. Join them as they discuss the three new films announced at the Star Wars Celebration, their joy or disappointment around the updates on some of the Disney+ series, and what they wished they saw at this year’s convention. We also have a short discussion about that The Marvels trailer that just dropped to open all the fun!
