Fans are waiting anxiously for more details on The Mandalorian coming to Disney Plus, meanwhile the world of Star Wars is continuing to grow off screen.

Completely out of left field came the announcement of Journey of Water featuring Moana at Epcot. This included a look inside the "Imagining Tomorrow, Today" pavilion in the Disney Parks where guests can see a scale model for the hotel called the Halcyon. Star Wars: Galactic Starcruiser will be a first-of-its-kind vacation experience where guests will check in for a two-night adventure aboard a starship.

Ahead of the official beginning of D23 Expo 2019, Disney+ and Lucasfilm have released the first official poster for their first live-action Star Wars TV series, The Mandalorian. Once onboard, guests will interact with characters and participate in a story that unfolds around them. Chapek said the park will see a "historic transformation, bringing the next generation of immersive storytelling to life through a plethora of new attractions and experiences".

Spotify's execs won't be ignoring Apple , which came relatively late to the streaming market with a launch in June 2015. At the moment, the 3-month trial period is available in Malaysia, but is only now available for single subscription.

Disney's planned superhero-themed areas of their parks now have a name: Avengers Campus.

Avengers Campus will invite guests to become part of an interconnected, global story that spans from California to Paris to Hong Kong with the Avengers recruiting new extraordinary people to join them.

More about the Avengers Campus experiences will be revealed at D23 Expo - in their pavilion open all weekend, and in a planned panel on Sunday. In addition to executive producing, Filoni has also been confirmed to direct the first episode with additional episodes helmed by Deborah Chow (Jessica Jones), Rick Famuyiwa (Dope), Bryce Dallas Howard (Solemates), and Taika Waititi (Thor: Ragnarok).
