We're taking another look at a point of interest in the history of the official canon Star Wars universe today - specifically at Anakin Skywalker.

Outages appear to be centered in the New York area, Southern California, Washington, Florida, and throughout The Netherlands.

The Disney Shop revealed another Baby Yoda plush toy today. This wouldn't be a big deal on its own, but this reveal is strange. Much like the first Baby Yoda (aka The Child) plush toy (and every other official Baby Yoda toy), this new plush won't be available until late February of 2020. It's as if Disney wants to drive fans into the loving embrace of independent artists creating their own yarn baby Yodas on Etsy!
