The game show Star Wars: Jedi Temple Challenge has given kids a chance to experience what it is like to train as Jedi Padawans. While it is primarily a program for kids, there are Easter eggs that may appeal to fans of all ages.
Halloween Horror Nights 2020 has been officially canceled by Universal Studios. The cancellation of this frightfully fun event is, of course, due to the coronavirus. All Universal Studios theme parks have been closed indefinitely following the World Health Organization (WHO) declaration of a global pandemic due to COVID-19. This announcement follows Disney’s cancellation of Mickey’s Not So Scary Halloween Party last month. Universal promises that the event will return in 2021. In the meantime, they will plan Halloween themes as part of their daytime schedule. Universal is also reviewing plans to re-open its Orlando park doors soon.
Legos and Star Wars have gone hand in hand for about as long as The Phantom Menace has been around. They are two brands that have fueled the imaginations of many people around the world. Many kids (and adults) over the years have had the chance to build Star Wars characters and vehicles out of Lego pieces. The popularity of the line eventually led to the launch of a video game series from Traveller's Tales, starting with 2005's Lego Star Wars: The Video Game. Along with the video games that followed since then, there have been Lego Star Wars shorts and TV shows.
On Octber 2, you can find out for yourself. Last month, Star Wars announced the new flight game Star Wars: Squadrons, coming to PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and VR. Squadrons will let you take flight in your very own ship in a way that previous video games never have before, joining dogfights for the Empire or New Republic and immersing yourself in the Star Wars universe in a brand new way.

One of the upcoming shows for Disney+ is a series about one of the less famous (at least to casual movie-goers) of the Avengers (especially before the 2012 film). This Avenger is, of course, the bow-wielding Hawkeye. A perfect shot with his weapon of choice, he developed a small following, but was never as popular as the core three of Captain America, Iron Man and Thor. Part of that likely is due to the fact that even in comic lore he does not have the draw that the other three do. The other part, however, is likely due to the fact that he never had his own standalone films or shows to introduce Jeremy Renner's take on the character.
