Trailer for the new animated shorts series “Galaxy of Adventures” debuting November 30th on the new Youtube Star Wars kids channel.

"Adventure awaits you and the younglings in your life in Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures, a new series of animated shorts that will introduce the classic themes, pivotal moments, and iconic characters from the Star Wars saga to the next generation.

Debuting on the all-new StarWarsKids.com and the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel on November 30, the first six shorts combine original dialogue, music, and sound effects with bold new animations, and fun and educational add-ons designed to help older fans, parents, and other mentors to welcome the kids in their lives to explore the galaxy far, far away. Additional shorts featuring fan-favorite characters will debut in December, with regular releases following in 2019.

“With Galaxy of Adventures, we wanted to craft something that allowed parents to help their kids take their first step into a much larger world whether they were ready to show their kids the films or wanted to find new ways to explore the content,” James Waugh, Lucasfilm’s vice president for franchise content and strategy, tells StarWars.com.

The dynamic animated adventures are only part of a multi-pronged initiative under the Star Wars Galaxy of Adventures banner, and the beginning of a year-long celebration of Star Wars storytelling, which will culminate with the final chapter in the Skywalker saga — Star Wars Episode IX — in theaters December 2019."

Looks infinitely better than Resistance already just based on the trailer and animation style.

My two girls will be introduced to Star Wars the only proper way though when they are ready and that is via the OT DSEs 😉

I doubt anyone making this even knows what the original shot looks like.

Lucasfilm effectively Trotsky’d that shot. The only slip through the mainstream cracks has been Han vs. Greedo.

Saddest thing are the artists these days that use the blu-rays as color reference for their work.

I find that answer vague and unconvincing. Why don’t you knock it off with them negative waves?
Why don’t you dig how beautiful it is out here? And say something righteous and hopeful for a change?

Wow, they really are “shorts” in that the runtime for each one only ranges between 56sec and 1min 14sec.

I honestly don’t see the point of these, even for kids 😕

Urge to make typically cynical remark … rising.

Yeah… is that the “content”? They’re making a line of toys based on that?
Referring to these as bumpers would be more than generous.

Reminds me of that YouTube ad for the Star Wars ‘Frames’ book, but less funny.

PM me for links to my edits; apparently, some feel shy about this.

So I think I finally figured out the purpose of these. I’ve noticed this trend for a while now with my nieces and nephews, a lot of kids these days are given tablets and left to their own devices on Youtube. Youtube has a Kids setting that will play an endless number of videos from channels that are tagged as such. They’ve created a specific Star Wars Kids Youtube channel and created these short videos specifically to market to this generation of kids.

It’s actually pretty smart as the vast majority of the content out there now is pure garbage.

Over 1 billion views for that pure garbage video - in under 2 years? Wow…

These have been lots of fun for kids, I hope they do more, maybe with Prequel or Sequel moments too.

Tighten Up and then turn it all the way up to 11!

Here’s the latest batch of them:
Princess Leia - An Unexpected Friend
Leia and Han - The Han Rescue
Jabba the Hutt - Galactic Gangster
Adventure Awaits
Luke vs. Jabba - Sail Barge Escape
Darth Vader vs. Hoth Rebels - Crushing the Rebellion
Chewbacca - Wookiee Warrior
Luke vs. the Rancor - Wrath of the Rancor
Chewie and Ewoks - Hijacking a Walker
Han Solo - From Smuggler to General
Boba Fett - The Bounty Hunter
Jedi vs. Sith - The Skywalker Saga

They’re really starting to pump these things out and yet it seems the quality continues to rise as it goes along. I’d love to see an interview with the team behind these. The ones that create entirely new scenarios outside of the films prove a full television series in this style would be phenomenal.

My nephews love these animated shorts - they haven’t seen ‘Boba - Bounty Hunter’ and the ‘Jedi vs Sith - The Skywalker Saga’ as yet - though I imagine they’ll be watching them on repeat a few times like they have the previous episodes.

That ‘Jedi vs. Sith - The Skywalker Saga’ episode… very nicely done, indeed.

 

I’m with you Tobar - an interview with the team would be most welcome - as would more episodes outside the main Saga…

Does anyone know if they are doing any more episodes?

THey have been a welcome introduction for many in the younger kids in my family who are just getting to the age where they’ll be seeing the films for the first time. I realy hope they do more (and soon 😃)
