Now that we have had a week to digest the incredible reveals and updates from this year’s D23 Expo, we thought it was important to revisit our Star Wars in 2019 – Month by Month post from January.

For those like us, 2019 is a fantastic time to be a Star Wars fan! This year is set to have us thoroughly entertained and constantly broke. No matter what the focus of your fandom/collection is, there is plenty to keep us happy until December 20th when the story which began 42 years ago with a secret message and two droids comes to a final end.
But Star Wars is forever and that means there will be plenty of stories to tell in the future and as of January 2019, the following are ones we officially know about.
