On my morning searchings today, I noticed that Lucasfilm has registered a new Lucasfilm Animation logo last week that cleverly incorporates a clone trooper helmet into the design. Two listings are associated with this filing:

With the return of the Clone Wars in February, prepare to see a lot more clone-related tie-ins/merchandise in the coming year.
IGN has posted an exclusive reveal of the upcoming The Art of Star Wars Jedi: Fallen Order: Limited Edition Art Book. Head on over to check out some great artwork including a very cool McQuarrie-esque Flametrooper.
The Emmy Award-nominated series “Star Wars Resistance” returns for its second and final season beginning SUNDAY, OCT. 6 (10:00-10:30 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel and in DisneyNOW, with subsequent airings on Disney XD. The new season takes place during the events of “The Last Jedi” leading up to “The Rise of Skywalker,” as Kaz and the team continue to fight against the threat of the First Order, culminating in an epic series finale. An all-new season two trailer for “Star Wars Resistance” was released today on the Star Wars YouTube page.
While hunting for new product info today I found a new name for a Hot Wheels Imperial walker for The Mandalorian series on Disney+. The product was designated “Huckleberry Walker“, and we know that products with the “Huckleberry” code name refer to that show specifically. With some further digging, the name has now changed to “AT-ST Raider” which is also interesting as it revives a name previously used in the Expanded Universe/Legends era. It so happens that in EU, the vehicle was also used in a battle on Mandalore. The AT-AR concept was also repurposed for the Star Wars Rebels series and became that AT-DP.
Jon Favreau is a huge EU/Legends fan so it’s not surprising that he’s pulled from that material to populate his vision universe. Rest assured, there will be plenty more Easter eggs like that throughout the series.
Hot Wheels will also have The Mandalorian’s Razor Crest, as part of its Starships line of die cast vehicles.
Lucasfilm has issued a press release for the Emmy nominated series Star Wars Resistance being released on DVD August 20.
Star Wars Resistance: Complete Season Onedelivers more than eight hours of entertainment including 21 action-packed episodes, 4 audio commentaries, 12 bonus shorts and an exclusive sneak-peek at the making of the series with cast and crew.
The cover for the upcoming Visual Dictionary for The Rise of Skywalker has been revealed and on it, we get a great detailed shot of one of the Knights of Ren as well as an official name one of the new TIEs from the film – the TIE Dagger. Could these specialized fighters be for the Sith Trooper division? Rumor says yes, but I guess we’ll have to wait for official word of that. Click the image above for a closer look.
