Holonet Blast #39

So uhh… there was a Star War that came out last weekend. You may have heard of it. A little indie film called The Last Jedi. Needless to say, we’re all losing our minds over it still. Because of said film, there wasn’t actually much in terms of news this week as it was essentially press junket after press junket but hey! We found a few things that you might have missed.

To start, The Last Jedi is currently on target for a $220 million opening weekend which is second only to The Force Awakens. Apparently people like Star Wars!

Cobalt Squadron by Elizabeth Wein is now available for purchase but if you’d like a taste of it first, you can read an excerpt over on StarWars.com.

And finally… Walt Disney is acquiring 21st Century Fox for $52.4 billion. So… uhh… yeah. That’s something.

If anyone needs me, I’ll be alternating watching The Last Jedi and playing Battlefront II for the rest of my life and crying over both.
