Brand New Look At The Newest Star Wars Story, Coming This Summer!

This summer the Star Wars universe is getting a little bit bigger in an amazing way. Lucasfilm and Disney and Hasbro are finally turning their focus to the amazing women of this franchise and giving them each their own animated short!

All your favorite Star Wars characters will be there, including Jyn Erso from Rogue One, Rey from Force Awakens and of course Princess Leia. This new project is titled Star Wars: Forces of Destiny and will also bring back some other characters like Maz voiced by Lupita Nyong'o.

Daisy Ridley and Felicity Jones will be back to voice their characters Rey and Jyn Erso respectively. The series is being called a "Micro-Series" that will be available on Disney's YouTube channel in July. In the fall they plan on releasing a two-part TV special on the Disney channel and then will release some new books based on the series.

Hasbro has also gotten in on the action, making 11 inch "adventure figures" based on the characters. They are able to pose in many different ways and are made with soft clothes and will even have their weapons like Rey's staff or Leia's blasters!

Chewbacca, BB8 and R2-D2 are also getting their own adventure figures and all of them look amazing. It's nice to see that toy companies are finally realizing that girls like the Star Wars universe too and deserve just as much attention!

What do you think about the new project? Will you be tuning in?

'Growing Pains' Stars Reunite To Reveal Their Favorite Memories From The Show We All Loved

Watching Growing Pains was one of the highlights of our week when we were kids. The Seaver family meant a lot to us, and it was such a sad day when it ended. Alan Thicke was the amazing patriarch of the family, but it was the kids that we all cared about. Kirk Cameron's character, Mike, was stealing hearts, Tracy Gold's character, Carol, was inspiring students, and Jeremy Miller's character, Ben, was causing trouble, but we loved him anyway. Recently, the three iconic and original Seaver children got together to share some of their favorite moments, and it makes us


Steve From 'Blue's Clues' Wants The Thinking Chair Back, And He's Willing To Fight For It

Hosting a kid's show is probably pretty fun, but I assume it gets a little bit tedious. I mean, even Sherry Lewis must have gotten annoyed by "The Song That Never Ends" after a while. It's a lot of repetition, and reviewing a lot of really basic skills, but I guess seeing the smiles on all those kids faces makes it all worth it. Blue's Clues was one of the biggest kids shows around, and millions of kids would sing along with the "Mail Time" song multiple times a day (much to their parent's annoyance). The host of the show
