Star Wars: Probe

This week Disney held a massive online Investor Day Event, in which they announced dozens of new projects in an effort to calm their worried partners and reassure them the company is still financially viable.

In the highlight of the event, Lucasfilm President Kathleen Kennedy revealed a whopping TEN new Star Wars TV series which will debut on Disney+, the company's premiere streaming service. These series (half of which will never actually see the light of day) are designed to cash in on the huge success of The Mandalorian, as they focus on numerous minor characters mined from the franchise. 

By far the most exciting and intriguing of these new series is Star Wars: Probe.

As with all the newly-announced shows, Probe is set during the timeline of the Original Series. It's based on the opening seconds of The Empire Strikes Back, in which we see twenty or so Probe Droids dispatched from the bowels of an Imperial Star Destroyer.

Each week the anthology series will follow one of these Probes to its destination, where we'll see it affect the lives of the various inhabitants living on that planet. Will the Probes help a colony of Twi'leks defend their home against a herd of marauding Rancors? Or will they discover a hidden cache of Rebels and report their location to the Empire? Tune in and find out!
