Star Wars is about as deep-rooted a cultural touchstone as it gets. For anyone born in North America (or probably the world, for that matter) since the 70s, it’s impossible to remember a time in your life where you weren’t aware of Star Wars.
Now, Lucasfilm wants to take our cultural Star Wars-immersion to the next level, with the development of a new series aimed at kids who aren’t old enough to watch movies. Star Wars: Galaxy of Adventures will be a series of short animated YouTube videos that each recap a Star Wars movie.
The language of the trailer is, as you can tell, geared towards kids: “in the star wars galaxy, adventure awaits in a thrilling new series of shorts. So team up with your friends, grab your lightsaber, fix your starship, use the force and stand up to evil.”
