Disney has announced a new live-action TV show today featuring Cassian Andor from Rogue One! Diego Luna will once again reprise his role as Cassian Andor!
Disney Chairman and CEO Bob Iger announced today that Lucasfilm is in development on a second Star Wars live-action series for Disney+, the Company’s new direct-to-consumer streaming service. The series, which will go into production next year, follows the adventures of rebel spy Cassian Andor during the formative years of the Rebellion and prior to the events of Rogue One: A Star Wars Story. Diego Luna will reprise the role of Andor. “Going back to the Star Wars universe is very special for me,” said Luna. “I have so many memories of the great work we did together and the relationships I made throughout the journey. We have a fantastic adventure ahead of us, and this new exciting format will give us the chance to explore this character more deeply.”
So now we know the name of Disney's new streaming platform which is Disney+ and we know that there will be a second Star Wars LIVE action TV show! This means that there is Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars: Resistance, The Mandalorian and now the Cassian Andor TV show in production. This is in addition to Episode IX, a new Rian Johnson Trilogy and the Star Wars movies in production by the Game Of Thrones TV show creators. Wasn't there talk of a slow down? It sure doesn't look like it and we are excited to see where Star Wars will go next! For the official announcement have a look at StarWars.com.

We are about 2 1/2 weeks away from the biggest shopping day in the United States, Black Friday, and the kick-off to the Holiday shopping season. With Toys'R'Us having closed their last stores in the U.S. in June of this year, we were wondering how the announcements made by retailers about how they were planning to fill the void left by Toys'R'Us, has translated onto the retail floors so far.
Kroger announced to roll out Geoffrey's Toy Box pop-up displays in almost 600 Kroger mainline and subsidiary stores across the United States. This past weekend we've found the first Geoffrey's Toy Box displays, and even though it's an increase of toys in the toy department, the increase is small. Kroger and Fred Meyer stores in particular have aisle displays filled with toys already anyways during the Holiday season, and the only real change to previous Holiday seasons seems to be that customers can now purchase previous Toys'R'Us exclusive brands such as Animal Zone, Imaginarium, Journey Girls, Edu Science, You & Me, and Just Like Home. Interesting here is that the prices for toys in Geoffrey's Toy Box pop-up displays will not exceed $49.99. This all sounds great but from a consumer point of view the actual visible change in the toy department is hardly noticeable.
