Podcast Stardust #232: Disney+ Additions, Thrawn, Rancors and Durge

by Podcast Stardust

Disney+ makes some old school Star Wars additions, Benedict Cumberbatch comments on Thrawn, and Rancors and Durge arrive in Star Wars comics in this week’s news.

Just when it looked like there was no Star Wars content coming to Disney+ until May, Star Wars fans were surprised to learn than some old school Star Wars content, some from George Lucas himself, is arriving on the platform in April. Plus, although he didn’t know who Thrawn was before, Benedict Cumberbatch has thoughts on playing the role now that he has been asked. Finally, there is plenty of classic Star Wars goodness coming to Marvel’s Star Wars comics this June. We discuss all this on today’s episode of Podcast Stardust.

On this fully armed and operational podcast, we discuss:

  • Ewoks, Tartakovsky’s Clone Wars, and a snippet of the Star Wars Holiday Special coming to Disney+,
  • Benedict Cumberbatch comments on his interest, or lack thereof, in playing Thrawn,
  • Rancors arrive in The High Republic comics, and
  • Durge returns in Doctor Aphra.
