The new series of animated shorts kicks off today on Star Wars Kids.
Today, Lucasfilm announced Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures, an all-new series of animated shorts, with the first two episodes available now on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel and StarWarsKids.com. Join adventurous droid SF-R3 (“Aree”), a member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts, as he journeys across the galaxy to learn everything there is to know about wildlife.
“The Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts was founded during the exploration age of the High Republic by scientists and adventurers interested in researching the myriad of new species found on the frontier worlds of the Republic,” said Matt Martin, sr. creative executive on the Lucasfilm Story Group. “In Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures, we have the opportunity to show how the Society cataloged the galaxy’s wildlife. I hope fans of all ages will enjoy following Aree’s adventures.”
From teaching porgs new tricks to brushing a rancor’s teeth, Aree will get the answers to the biggest -- and silliest -- creature questions.
In the series, Aree will study creatures big and small: banthas, blurggs, charhounds, Kowakian monkey-lizards, mynocks, nexu, porgs, rancors, tauntauns, tooka cats, voorpaks, and wampas.
Lucasfilm has also created activities and a certificate to become an honorary member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts for families to complete together as they watch the series. In addition, you can bring some of these fascinating and cute creatures home.
