  • Great news if it happens 😁

  • Let’s see.. A very popular Star Wars character that first appeared in a comic book? Well, that would be very good news for those who got in on this character early on! Her droid friends would be very fun to watch as well! “If” this does go down the 1:25 will probably go nuts! Hopefully Disney will make some sort of official announcement sooner or later wither way.
