The Star Wars Kids YouTube channel is back with a new series that will teach kids (and adults) some of the secrets and finest details of the galaxy. In the new series of shorts, titled Galaxy of Creatures, Lucasfilm takes us on a journey of exploring some of our favorite creatures featured in the Star Wars canon. Today, they released the official trailer as well as the first two shorts, focused on porgs and banthas.
Here’s the official synopsis:
Join adventurous droid SF-R3, “Aree,” a member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts, as he journeys across the galaxy to learn everything there is to know about wildlife in the new animated shorts series, Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures!
Here is the trailer:
In addition, here are the first two shorts:
According to StarWars.com, ten more episodes are coming, and they will focus on creatures ranging from wampas to rancors. Galaxy of Creatures is not the first time the YouTube channel has tried to introduce the Star Wars galaxy to our youngest generations — former series like this include Star Wars: A to Z or Star Wars: Much to Learn.
Matt Martin, senior creative executive on the Lucasfilm Story Group, said in a statement:
“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. In Star Wars Galaxy of Creatures, we have the opportunity to show how the Society cataloged the galaxy’s wildlife. I hope fans of all ages will enjoy following Aree’s adventures.”
