Link Tank: Star Wars Day Edition – May the 4th Be With You!
In honor of Star Wars day, we have an entire galaxy of far, far away-themed goodies for you in today's Link Tank!
Could The Mandalorian season 3 be arriving way sooner than we might think? One of the show’s main stars seems to think so.
“When we last saw our beloved Din Djarin, it was in The Book of Boba Fett. He was reuniting with Grogu (who had been training with Luke Skywalker) after helping Fett, the struggling crime lord, defeat the Pyke Syndicate who were threatening Fett’s rule over Tatooine’s underworld. Djarin and Grogu had both been struggling since they separated at the end of season 2, including Djarin even being banished from his strict Mandalorian sect for taking off his helmet!”
This May the 4th, Disney Home offers themed décor inspired by the most iconic characters and much-loved stories, from Darth Vader to Grogu.
“The Rebellion Rug – features three of the Rebel Alliance’s most iconic starships (the X-wing, the A-wing, and the fastest ship in the galaxy, the Millennium Falcon). Available in a range of sizes, the bold illustrated design features contrasting light and dark colors to suggest motion and flight through space. Wall Art – stylish Star Wars™ inspired prints, including stormtrooper, R2-D2 and X-wing starfighters. Lighting – for a touch of ‘out of this galaxy’ design and a starry brightness at any desktop, the Millennium Falcon is available now as an anglepoise desk light.”
It’s short, but a new trailer for the upcoming series Obi-Wan Kenobi teases an epic rematch for the ages.
“Set ten years after the events of Star Wars Episode III: Revenge of the Sith, Star Wars: Obi-Wan Kenobi stars Ewan McGregor as everyone’s favorite Jedi Master. Kenobi is on Tatooine, keeping an eye on a young Luke Skywalker, but his former apprentice, Darth Vader, is still on the hunt, dispatching deadly Inquisitors to find and destroy Kenobi. Or, at least that is what we can glean from the first trailer and the second one, which you can watch below.”
Are Ewoks the cutest Star Wars creatures? Or what about Porgs?
“The most awww-inspiring creatures from the galaxy far, far away. Where does your favorite “Star Wars” non-human character rank on our list of cuteness?”
Are you looking for a Star Wars-themed game to play today during May 4th? We’ve got you covered!
“You see, May 4th sounds kind of like ‘may the force,’ which is part of the franchise’s famous phrase ‘May the Force be with you.’ Yeah, it’s kinda dumb, but as is now something of an annual tradition, a bunch of digital storefronts has old and new Star Wars games on sale to mark the occasion. So I’ll ignore how silly the whole concept of Star Wars Day is if I can get some cheap games out of it.”
LEGO is offering a plethora of exciting promotions in honor of Star Wars day!
“It’s May the Fourth (be with you) today and the annual Star Wars extravaganza at LEGO.com continues. 75341 Luke Skywalker’s Landspeeder is now available to everyone, and you can still avail yourself with the following offers until the 8th May, or while stocks last.”
