It looks like after The Rise of Skywalker this December, we will be waiting until December 2022 for the next theatrically released film:
Untitled Star Wars 12/16/2022
Untitled Star Wars 12/20/2024
Untitled Star Wars 12/18/2026
No word yet if this is the Rian Johnson or the Benioff/Weiss trilogy
The finds continue as I managed to local 8 new UPCs and Walmart SKUs for upcoming Black Series figures for The Rise of Skywalker, Jedi Fallen Order and The Mandalorian. Based on what I’m finding for new product, I think it is now safe to assume that the code “Oslo” is for Kylo Ren. More on that soon….
Update: “FO Cal” is Cal Kestis from the new game Jedi: Fallen Order
Update 2: Thinking linguistically, La Huck may be the female form of the code, and it would be Cara Dune.
During Disney’s Investor Day Webcast, they revealed that the official launch date for Disney+ will be November 12. With that, the new Lucasfilm series, The Mandalorian will also be available. Subscription costs for the Disney+ service launches at an attractive $6.99 per month.

Disney Channel has ordered a second season of the high-flying animated series “Star Wars Resistance” for a fall 2019 premiere. The series follows Kazuda Xiono (“Kaz”), a young pilot recruited by the Resistance for a top-secret mission to spy on the growing threat of the First Order. Season one continues on SUNDAY, JAN. 13 (10:00-10:30 p.m. EST/PST), on Disney Channel and DisneyNOW.

Walmart’s exclusive TVC Mimban Stormtrooper is finally seeing some distribution thanks to them being in stock online, though at a pretty high markup.
Personal Note: Mine arrived today, and damn what a fine figure it is! Hopefully Hasbro and Disney are taking notes that great army builders like this should be packed heavily in basic assortments as opposed to being an exclusive. And just imagine how much better the TVC retail landscape would look if Wave One of TVC had two of these packed into each case instead of repacks of Rey and Jyn?
