Lucasfilm has announced a brand new animated series of micro-shorts called “Star Wars Galactic Pals”, which is a spinoff of the adventures of the droid SF-R3 (“Aree”) in “Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures”, Galactic Pals joins M1-RE (“Miree”), another member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts, as she looks after and studies ornery Ortolans, fussy Hutts, scavenging Jawas, and more creatures and aliens aboard the Youngling Care Space Station.
Check out the trailer below:
Jason Stein, creative executive in Animation Development & Production told StarWars.com
“Building on the success of Aree’s adventures educating the viewer about the creatures of the Star Wars galaxy, we saw an opportunity to showcase some of the galaxy’s younger inhabitants as well. Caring for such a group of young creatures and aliens poses particular challenges that required a specialized member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts to handle them, leading to the creation of Miree and her camera droid Cam-E.
With each short, Miree shares her knowledge with wit, charm and humor that aims to inspire curiosity and interaction. Miree’s positivity invites fans to engage with these younglings while celebrating what makes them each unique and loveable.”
In the series, Miree will look after a variety of galactic younglings: Ewoks, Wookiees, Ortolans, Huttlets, Jawas, Rodians, Gamorreans, Gungans, as well as tauntauns, rancors, porgs, and Loth-cats.
Disney is also released a number of inspired plush by Mattel, which include a Wookiee, an Ewok, a Jawa, and a Rodian. These are available at Target.
“Star Wars Galactic Pals” will have a 12-episode run, with the first six episodes will be released every Tuesday through April 26th online at StarWarsKids.com, with the first two episodes out now. It’s not been announced if these shorts will also be released on Disney+ at a later date.
