The Force is so strong with the "Star Wars" franchise that Lucasfilm and Disney are producing a weekly online video series about it.
"The Star Wars Show" is debuting Wednesday on YouTube, Facebook, StarWars.com and other online channels. Lucasfilm says the weekly series will celebrate "the franchise, fans and fun of the world of 'Star Wars.'"
While there are already several ongoing online series dedicated to "Star Wars" fandom, Lucasfilm says "The Star Wars Show" will stand out by offering exclusive news, never-before-seen footage and behind-the-scenes looks at "Star Wars" films, shows and games.
"The Star Wars Show" will be hosted by actor and "Star Wars" superfan Peter Townley and StarWars.com digital communications manager Andi Gutierrez.
