Episode #73: “The Falcon has landed!” may have been gushed by SpaceX officials following the epic upright landing of the FALCON 9 BOOST STAGE back in 2015, but little did they know that another Falcon – the MILLENIUM FALCON – would land a few years later at the happiest place on earth in Anaheim, California. We’ve got updates on Disney’s GALAXY’S EDGE and more including the Marvel release schedule for the next four years (10 movies!), pictures and speculation from the set of THE MANDALORIAN, and enough STAR WARS COMICS talk to put the producer to sleep.
