While LEGO fans are accustomed to a new Star Wars UCS set release every May the Fourth, the company is taking a different approach this year by releasing a highly detailed playset instead.

Though some wondered if soft drinks from this universe would be sold inside Star Wars: Galaxy's Edge, Disney confirmed this week that they would be selling Coca-Cola, Diet Coke, Sprite and Dasani bottled water in specially-designed bottles that will fit in with the Star Wars theme.

Jon Favreau's live-action Star Wars series starring Pedro Pascal as a lone gunfighter out on the furthest reaches of the galaxy will hit the streaming service on day one.

This panel is presented by Star Wars and Lucasfilm Youtube. The Mandalorian looks to be the first show that takes that mandate to heart: Favreau has emphasized that the main character will operate in parts of the galaxy not yet explored by the films.
