Star Wars fans are going to have a lot of content to enjoy on Disney+ this year, even without considering newly created series like The Book of Boba Fett and next month’s Star Wars: The Bad Batch.
Today marked the launch of the Disney+ Star Wars Vintage Collection, which curates some beloved (but currently non-canonical) Star Wars content from years past, such as the two made-for-TV Ewoks movies from the mid-1980s, the acclaimed Star Wars: Clone Wars animated micro-series which aired on Cartoon Network between the releases of Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones and Star Wars: Episode III – Revenge of the Sith, the animated segment from the notorious 1978 Star Wars Holiday Special, and the 1985 Ewoks cartoon. And with the launch came the official announcement that Ewoks’ sister series Star Wars: Droids will also be joining the collection later this year.
- Lucasfilm has announced that the 1985 Star Wars: Droids cartoon will join the newly launched Star Wars Vintage Collection on Disney’s streaming service Disney+ later this year.
- Star Wars: Droids originally aired on ABC and consists of 13 episodes plus one hour-long special entitled The Great Heep.
- The Star Wars Vintage Collection launched today on Disney+ with the Droids sister series Ewoks, the two made-for-TV Ewoks movies Caravan of Courage and The Battle for Endor, the animated segment from the infamous Star Wars Holiday Special entitled “The Story of the Faithful Wookiee,” and the 2003 Star Wars: Clone Wars micro-series developed and directed by Genndy Tartakovsky.
What they’re saying:
- StarWars.com: “Some lost Star Wars classics have been found. The Star Wars Vintage Collection arrives today on Disney+, featuring several long-out-of-print and previously unavailable movies and series.”
- “In addition, the Star Wars: Droids animated series is slated to join the Star Wars Vintage Collection later this year.”
The Star Wars Vintage Collection is available to stream right now exclusively on Disney+.
