A new adventure for young Star Wars fans is coming! Lucasfilm has announced Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures, a series of animated shorts.
According to StarWars.com, the series follows SF-R3 or “Aree,” a droid who’s part of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts, as he “journeys across the galaxy to learn everything there is to know about wildlife.”
Matt Martin, the Senior Creative Executive on the Lucasfilm Story Group, says “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.”
The High Republic era is set hundreds of years before the Skywalker Saga beginning with The Phantom Menace.

Not only are we getting some fun shorts, Lucasfilm has created activities for young creature enthusiasts. Parents can print it out for their young ones here.
And that’s not all! You can bring some of your favorite characters and creatures from the show home with you as well! Mattel Plush Stitchling plushies are available for pre-order only at Target. Amazon also has tees, accessories, and home goods products!
Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures will have a 12-episode run, with two new episodes released every Thursday. The first two episodes about porgs and banthas are out now! You can watch them on the Star Wars Kids YouTube channel and StarWarsKids.com.
