Are these Star Wars Galactic Pals plushes and their accompanying micr0-short animated series technically labeled as part of Star Wars Kids? Yes. Do we intend to buy the new Star Wars toys for ourselves immediately? Also yes. These new plushes come from a collaboration between Lucasfilm and Mattel. They bring us “a plush assortment of some of the adorable young creatures and aliens featured in the new Star Wars Kids animated micro-shorts series.”
Star Wars Galactic Pals Plush Toys
Right now, the plush Galactic Pals bring us cuddly versions of four characters from Star Wars, who also star in the new series of animated shorts. The plushes include a Wookiee, Jawa, Ewok, and Rodian. Now, we know these creatures can be ferocious if they want. But right now, we embrace their cute forms. Even if these Star Wars toys do lean just a hair into cute-but-creepy territory. Still, the feels like a part of their charm.
Star Wars Galactic Pals Animated Series
The plushes counterparts, the new Star Wars Kids animated series launches on April 12. It will appear on StarWarsKids.com. A description for the show shares:
Star Wars Galactic Pals joins M1-RE (“Miree”), a member of the Galactic Society of Creature Enthusiasts, as she looks after and studies ornery Ortolans, fussy Hutts, scavenging Jawas, and more aboard the Youngling Care Space Station. Miree studies creatures and aliens living outside of their home planet’s habitat to identify common species behavior. By teaching the younglings in her care deep breathing techniques, how to express themselves through music, and the importance of maintaining bedtime routines, Miree helps each youngling realize their full potential.
The series will have 12 episodes. Two episodes will release each Tuesday until April 26. More episodes will release in the fall.
