In this edition, if you didn’t keep up with Star Wars: The Clone Wars or Star Wars Rebels, then you might want to watch a video explaining everything you need to know about the character Ahsoka Tano on The Mandalorian. Plus, find out how Weta Workshop creating leather armor for Mulan, and listen to Jude Law break down his most memorable characters.
